This mango pineapple smoothie with Wallaby®Organic Greek plain whole milk yogurt is one of my favorite Greek yogurt smoothies. The addition of turmeric and honey elevate this refreshing drink and make it something special. Do you have five minutes? That’s all you need!
What’s not to love about making smoothies at home? They are quick to prepare, both kids and adults enjoy them, and you can add a lot of nutritional goodness to every glass.
I have two picky eaters at my house and smoothies are a great way for my kids to try out new flavors. This smoothie combines familiar fruits of frozen mango, frozen pineapple, and a banana with a hint of turmeric. Tangy and smooth Greek yogurt adds protein and thickens this drink perfectly.
Wallaby®Organic Greek plain whole milk yogurt is an Aussie style Greek yogurt made with organic whole milk and cultures. It’s thick, creamy, and ideal for blending into smoothies. It is an excellent source of protein with 15 g of protein per ¾ cup serving.
Honey: There is a tablespoon of honey in this smoothie recipe (for two servings of 16 oz). Honey goes well with turmeric and also balances the tangy Greek yogurt.
Turmeric: You may be familiar with ground turmeric that you find in the spice aisle. Turmeric is a bright, golden-yellow spice that comes from the root of a plant in the ginger family. Ground turmeric is what I use in this smoothie. If you have fresh turmeric, that works too! Use 1 Tablespoon of freshly grated turmeric in place of 1 teaspoon of ground turmeric.
Fruits: Frozen fruits like mango and pineapple give this smoothie a tropical feel. I love adding a banana to my smoothies since I am packing as many fruits as possible into my kids’ drinks, but if you prefer a smoothie without banana, feel free to omit it.
Liquid: Every smoothie needs a liquid added to help blend the ingredients into a drink. My go-to is So Delicious® Dairy Free Organic Coconutmilk original. Other good choices are oatmilk or almondmilk.
Steps for making smoothies
The short explanation is simple: add all your ingredients into a blender and puree until smooth.
A few more details help though: When making a smoothie, layer your ingredient in a way that makes it easy for the blender to do its job. Frozen fruit chunks go on the bottom, topped with the fresh banana, creamy Greek yogurt, honey, ground turmeric, and then pour in the coconutmilk.
If you love smoothies, you’ll enjoy this dragon fruit smoothie, too!
Sure, if you are like me and have frozen, sliced bananas in your freezer, this smoothie recipe is a good place to use one. You may need to adjust the amount of liquid added. Add ¼ cup more of coconutmilk.
Yes, this smoothie with pineapple and mango can be made with fresh fruit. I find that less liquid is needed when working with fresh fruit so start with one cup of liquid and add more if needed.
Of course! Switching a smoothie into a smoothie bowl is easy. Simply use less liquid so that the mixture is thicker. Add toppings like coconut flakes, fresh fruit, nuts, or seeds then eat with a spoon.
I like tropical and citrus fruits with turmeric. Mango, pineapple, dragonfruit, as well as lemon, lime, or oranges. I was more familiar using turmeric in curries. Making a smoothie with turmeric showed me what a versatile ingredient turmeric is! Give it a try and let me know what you think.
