Mango, Coconut and Pineapple Smoothie

Before our smart devices show a sudden dip in temperature with small grey clouds dispensing water droplets on the weather apps, before we are pleasantly woken up in the middle of the night by the faint, sweet nostalgic smell of fresh rain mingled with mud, before the monsoons take over the Indian periphery, before the harsh summers bid us adieu, and before all the divine globes of orange, yellow and green a.k.a mangoes disappear for an entire year from our sights, homes, streets and markets, Here is my last attempt of savoring and devouring this king of fruits in all its glory.

Summers scream refreshments and who am I to not hear its plea, so I promptly march towards my refrigerator and bring out some lovely refreshing ingredients to make a deliciously light, fresh and flavorful summer drink.

As much as I love a visual treat, I also love the way certain foods mix and match to produce a delectable burst of flavour for an ever bored palette as is mine.

I have always found the mixing of tropical fruits to be an interesting and delicious blend.

You can mix match and alter fruits according to your likes and choice, think of the tropics the lush palm leaves swaying in the soft Hawaiian breeze, and all the fruits on the surrounding trees, then think of blending a few of these into a drink..............ahhh........what bliss.....

Anyway coming back to our recipe, this time I have paired mangoes with coconut and pineapple as I had both the ingredients on hand.

Serves 2

You will need:

300 gms mango pulp or 2 medium mangoes
1 cup yogurt
2 tbsps desiccated coconut or coconut milk or fresh coconut
2 tbsps pineapple crush (replace with sugar or honey in case you are only using mangoes)
Milk (Just enough to bring it all together)


Put all the ingredients into a blender and blend, add cold milk a little at a time till the mixture comes to your desired consistency.
