I just made a delicious smoothie using pineapple, mango, banana
and strawberries – hence the name! I added plain yoghurt and a bit of almond paste, diluted with milk, and have enough smoothies for over the weekend. I used freshly frozen fruits (I bought them recently, processed them and tossed them in the freezer), except the pineapple, which was a small tin of unsweetened, about 4 rings.
1 small can unsweetened pineapple rings, plus juice
1/2 C. mango pulp
1/2 banana, in slices
1/2 C. strawberries
a drizzle of honey (to taste)
1-2 tsp. almond paste, or peanut butter
150 ml. plain yoghurt
Pop it all in a blender, and mix until smooth. For each glass of smoothie, pour half full with the mix, and fill the rest with milk, or any fruit juice you choose. Serve chilled, preferably with a straw to get all the goodness!
Smoothies make a great base for homemade ice cream, or popsicle.
