Tropical Smoothie Delight

July 08, 2013 2 min read

Blasted after a good workout? Need a pick-me-up to help you make it through those last few hours of work? This natural smoothie is not only absolutely delicious, but it's going to help restore a lot of that energy you used up during your workout. What makes this smoothie so awesome: the pineapple! Pineapples are loaded with bromelain, which is a natural anti-inflammatory. You can reduce post-workout aches by drinking my favorite tropical smoothie.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup of frozen pineapple (slice one up into cubes and keep it in the freezer for instant smoothie delight)

  • 1 mango

  • 4 oranges

 

Preparation

Run the oranges through your juicer, or squeeze them by hand to burn another 15 or 20 calories (every bit counts, right?!). Pour the juice into your blender, and add the frozen pineapple cubes into the cup as well. Use a knife to peel the mango, and slice the flesh from the seed. Add the mango flesh into the blender cup, and hit the "Pulse" button. Pulse the blender until the smoothie is nice and thick, and set it on the "Puree" setting until all of the fruit has been chopped up properly. (For a nice alternative, throw a few strawberries into the mix instead of mango.) There are few smoothies more refreshing than this one, and it will help you cool off after a long run, a sparring session (every Tuesday and Friday for me), or your daily HIIT. Handy Tip:If you wait until the pineapple has matured, it will be sweeter and tastier than a freshly ripened pineapple. Bring the fruit home with you, let it sit on the counter for a couple of days, and squeeze it daily. When it has softened to the point that you can squeeze it fairly easily, it is ready to be cubed and frozen for your smoothies. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. Cheers!

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-6 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

 

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.

All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
