Pineapple and Mango Smoothie

Ok, Ok, I know it’s not actually cooking, but it was pretty easy (and Lazy) so I decided to post it anyway.  I made some hamsteak and pineapple (shock horror, using tinned pineapple) and ended up with all the juice from the tin left over.  Since Melbourne is enjoying a hot spell, I decided to put the pineapple juice to good use.  I drained an 825g tin and got approximately 1 cup of juice.  If you have a little more or a little less, it doesn’t matter, this isn’t baking and measurements don’t have to be exact!  You will get two glasses from this recipe.

Pineapple and mango smoothie


Approximately 1 cup pineapple juice (unsweetened preferably);

1 ripe mango;

1 cup of Greek Yoghurt (the creamy kind, not the kind that is almost separating).


Put the juice into a large jug and slice up the mango directly into the jug.  Using a stick blender, blend to a smooth puree.  Spoon in the yoghurt and mix.

Pour into two glasses (chill the glasses if it is a really hot day) and enjoy.


This recipe does not have any added sugar, and is very refreshing.  If you have sweet tastes, add a dollop of honey and swirl through.
