Pineapple and Mango Smoothie / Cocktail

Frozen Pineapple and Mango with rum.

Creamy frozen pineapple and mango with rum.

This recipe has just been requested by Madeleine of Nottingham in England, who came to stay with us during the summer, and appreciated this cold drink in the unaccustomed, California heat. That’s my excuse for posting a frozen smoothie recipe when the east of the US is experiencing the coldest weather it has had in a couple of decades …. though to be honest, here in California, we’re having mild summer weather, humidity levels down at 12%, and no rain. Again. This place is parched, so maybe a frozen drink would be a good idea right now.

This serves 2.

1 cup (8 fl oz) frozen pineapple chunks
1 cup (8 fl oz) frozen mango chunks
2 cups (16 fl oz) sweetened, non dairy milk (I use vanilla almond milk)
1 tbsp honey (optional) … or 2 tbsp Bacardi if this is destined for adults (also optional).

Place all ingredients in a blender, and blend on highest speed until smooth.

Hand out to all your kids (without the Bacardi) who won’t really realize they’re getting their day’s quota of fruit.


I'd love to hear from you. :-)
