This easy smoothie combines mango, pineapple and banana.

I enjoyed this drink for morning tea almost every day when we lived in Bali. It’s so fruity and fresh and leaves you feeling full and satisfied. Plus it’s a really simple way to get in those extra greens!


Serves 1

5 minutes

1 frozen banana

1 cup frozen mango pieces

2 cups frozen pineapple pieces

Handful of kale or spinach leaves

2 Tbsp hemp seeds

½ cup soy milk

To serve

Granola (gluten-free and nut-free optional)

  1. Combine all the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.
