A delicious, thick and luscious tropical smoothie, reminiscent of a pina colada, with just a few simple ingredients. Enjoy!
As well as loads of Vitamin C you will get a good serving of protein from the milk and Greek yogurt.
Greek yogurt comes in the same fat levels as milk. So choose the one which you prefer. Half a cup of nonfat Greek yogurt (or milk for that matter) is about 65 calories, 2% is 75 cals and full fat is 138 cals. Now you may wonder why anyone would bother ‘wasting’ calories on full fat dairy when you can save a pile on nonfat? It’s great that you can play around with a smoothie recipe to suit your needs today, however, the fat level equates to the fill-factor: the more fat, the more filling, therefore the less likely you will run looking for a snack shortly after you have your smoothie. You can skip a few calories elsewhere if you need to save some, but a filling meal will save you more in the long run.

I’m not much about sticking to the seasonal fare rules, especially when it comes to smoothies. We like to enjoy fruit smoothies all year long. That’s why I like buying and staying stocked up on frozen fruit. Whether it’s blueberries, strawberries, cherries, or mango, you will always find a few bags of frozen fruit in our freezer. Which means that we are never without the ingredients for a healthy snack, quick breakfast, or even when needed, an easy lunch for on the go.
Keeping a good supply of frozen fruit means you will have thick smoothies. Keep a watch on your blender as occasionally I find I have to add a little extra water/liquid to help it cope.
