How to Store

For that just-blended freshness, sip your Tropical Smoothie right away. If you need to store any leftovers, pour the excess into an airtight container and stash it in the freezer. When you’re ready for reserve, let it thaw slightly, give it a good stir or a quick whirl in the blender, and enjoy.
