Tropical mango, pineapple, chia smoothie

Serves 2-3


  • 1 cup mango chunks (fresh or frozen)
  • 1 banana
  • 3/4 cup pineapple chunks (fresh or frozen)
  • 1/3 cup plain yogurt
  • 1/2 cup your favorite milk (I like almond milk here)
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup coconut shavings
  • 1/2 cup ice (omit if using frozen fruit)
  • 2 tbsp chia seeds


  1. Pour almond milk into blender. Add yogurt, water and chia seeds followed by all fresh or frozen fruit and coconut shavings.
  2. Blend on medium high or high until all ingredients are well mixed. Watch for consistency and add more water or fruit for desired thickness.
  3. Top with extras for extra texture and presentation if desired — I used almond slices, more chia seeds and shredded coconut.
  4. Serve smoothie immediately.
