Ode to the Tropical Cream Supreme

24 Jul

When I was in high school, there was an Orange Julius in Isla Verde…  we would go every Sunday afternoon, after going to the beach the whole day, to cool off with a Tropical Cream Supreme.  This was THE BEST drink over at the Orange Julius.  It tasted like summer, sand and sun all rolled up into a delicious shake.   

I liked these shakes so much that my then boyfriend would buy and bring them to me almost every night when I was home-bound with the chicken pox.  I even bought once a Hawaiian Tropic suntan oil because it smelled just like a Tropical Cream Supreme.  It was almost an obsession… I know.

But that was then…  and suddenly, without even looking for it, I once again reunited with one of my high school loves – The Tropical Cream Supreme.  Let me show you how…



1 banana
3 strawberries
1 cup orange juice
½ cup plain soymilk
3 tbs agave nectar
1 tbs bee pollen
3 ice cubes
  1. Mix everything in a blender and enjoy it watching the sunset after a hot day at the beach. (sigh!)


The bee pollen is something I added on my own.  It was not included in the original shake, however it added certain sweetness and energy-boosting qualities very much in tune with my current lifestyle.  Try it… it’s available at most natural food stores.

    I recall this drink having a coconut aftertaste. Have you tried using coconut cream or shredded coconut in this?

      It did to you?? No I haven’t added anything coconut to this, but it may be a very good idea to try!! Thanks a lot.

    This was great! Replaced soy milk with heavy cream and it was almost identical to the tropical Julius supremes I had as a kid.
