This is one smoothie you would want to drink the minute you wake up. Bursting with flavors, this all fruit, no dairy smoothie is a perfect breakfast drink!
This smoothie is no frills, super easy and extremely quick. All you need to do is throw in all the ingredients in a mixer and whizz them up. My kinda drink after a long tedious day.
After being awake last night for way too long, followed by an early morning and then a round of grocery shopping on a super hot day in Delhi I was neither in a mood to cook nor eat! All I could think of was a cool refreshing drink and me sipping it in peace, that’s when I made it. Its really fruity, I’ve added coconut water as a base but you can add coconut milk too, I’m pretty sure that’ll taste divine.
So let’s talk about this beauty before I fall asleep. :p
RECIPE: Sunrise Smoothie with Pineapple and Mango
Makes: 1 tall glass Time: Not even 5 minutes
- Pineapple, Chopped, 1/2 cup
- Mango, Chopped, 1/4 cup
- Fresh or packaged Coconut Water, 2/3 cup
- Frozen Banana, 1 (you can use 2-3 tablespoons of yogurt instead)
- Sugar Syrup, 1 tablespoon
Blend frozen banana in a mixer until it resembles a soft serve ice cream. It’ll look very grainy at first but then It’ll turn smooth. Keep blending until it does.
Add in the remaining ingredients and whizz again until the smoothie is nice and smooth. Pour in glasses and serve.
You can also add crushed ice into the mixer if it can handle it. However, if your mixer is not equipped to crush ice, freeze your ingredients beforehand and then blend them. The smoothie will be cold without using any ice.
Hope you try this. If you do, let me know! I’d love to know what you thought of it. Why don’t you try it with coconut milk instead of coconut water..A virgin Pina Colada!? 😀
Write to me for any queries!
Why don’t you try these too this summer?
