Creamy Tropical Fruit Smoothie

With Spring in full force (although with fairness last week felt like Summer!) I have been enjoying a lot more smoothies, especially since I have recently re-joined the gym. It's a great way to start my day or to give me an energy boost mid afternoon before or after working out. Even better my son loves it and not that I need any help getting him to eat fruit, if you have a fussy fruit eater in your family I am sure they will love this.

Makes 2 glasses (easily doubled)

1 cup of frozen mango cubes
1 full (slightly overflowing!) cup of strawberries, hulled
¼ pineapple, peeled
1 pot of yogurt (100g approx)*
Splash of milk (optional)

Put the mango cubes into a blender and leave to soften slightly while you cup up the other fruit, then add the strawberries and pineapple to the blender along with the yogurt. I tend to half fill my pot of yogurt with the milk and swish it around a bit to get the last of the yogurt before adding it to the blender. Blitz until smooth then serve while thick and creamy and icy cold.


If you don't have frozen mango cubes add a few ice cubes to the blended when you blitz it to make it nice and frosty cold.


If you don't like/ have allergies to Mango or simply can't get any you can replace it with 1 large banana instead, just don't forget the ice!


  1. Yum Lynz, looks so refreshing and good!

  2. Man these looks so delish! What a treat!

  3. I certainly need some sort of energy boost in the mornings- been way too sluggish lately! This smoothie sounds pretty much perfect!

  4. Thank you all! I can't enough of them - such a great way to start the day and if you are looking for something even healthier I often add a tablespoon of Chia seeds to the smoothie right at the end, blitz again quickly and drink! Delicious and healthy and it disappears quickly!

  5. This drink seriously looks incredible!
