Tropical Mango Pineapple Smoothie


It's been a while since I posted a smoothie recipe here on the blog. The weather hasn't been that great to enjoy a glass of smoothie. The past winter in Melbourne has been super cold, windy and raining most of the days. But it's officially spring now and slowly the weather has started to warm up a bit. Spring is one of my favorite seasons and it's also the season of my favorite fruit - mango! I can't think of anyone who doesn't love a juicy ripe mango.

Kensington Pride, Calypso, R2E2 and Honey Gold are some of the mango varieties in Australia, with Kensington Pride being one of the most popular one. Mangoes are quite expensive too - after all it's the king of all fruits!!! On most Saturdays, we go to our local market to stock up the vegetables and fruits for the week. I got a box of mangoes which was heaps cheaper. I'm hoping to post some mango recipes unless we end up snacking all the mangoes!


Last Sunday the weather was beautiful. I made this tropical smoothie with mango, pineapple, Greek yogurt, orange juice and coconut water. It was so delicious and refreshing. Kids will definitely enjoy this healthy s smoothie. I don't follow any particular recipe for smoothie. Just throw the ingredients into the blender, adjust and taste as you go. Usually I add banana to smoothies to make it thick and creamy. This time I added mango and passion fruit flavored Greek yogurt; you can use plain yogurt. To thin out the smoothie I added coconut water and some orange juice. The sweetness in the fruit was enough for us. If you feel you need more sweetness, add some raw honey or other natural sweeteners. Try this smoothie when mango and pineapple are in season for your family.
