Boring salad. Water. Repeat.

You can only stick to that routine for so long before you lose not only your sanity, but your drive to eat anything healthy ever again.

Tropical Smoothie Cafe always offers tasty eats to break up the monotony, and the location at the Gateway Town Center is definitely shaking things up with its Baja Chicken Bowl. And because they know you'll be just as obsessed as they are, they're sharing the recipe for you to DIY deliciousness at home.



Baja Chicken Bowl


  • Romaine lettuce (your preference on amount)
  • 1/3 cup cooked white or brown rice, heated
  • 2 tbsp. smashed avocado
  • 1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2 tbsp. black beans, heated
  • 3 oz. chopped grilled chicken, heated
  • 1 oz. pickled red onion
  • 2 oz. roasted tomato salsa


Wash and place romaine lettuce in large bowl.

Layer rice, smashed avocado, cheddar cheese, black beans, chopped chicken and pickled red onion on romaine.

Drizzle your desired amount of salsa over the bowl.

Pro tip: Pair your bowl with Tropical Smoothie’s Island Green Smoothie for extra

superfood benefits.
