Pineapple and Mango Smoothie ( A Curtis Stone recipe)
Unlike the smoothie recipes I have seen ,this one doesn't contain any dairy product. Its very nice and fresh tasting smoothie and one I found while searching for a drink (nonalcoholic) by Curtis Stone for this weeks' theme at IHCC.
I used packed orange juice , lets just say I was too lazy to squeeze oranges after handling a pineapple, LOL. Since its mango season I had my stock of frozen mangoes . I strained the smoothie, mainly because there is the stringy bits of mangoes and sometimes from the pineapple and knowing the boys I knew if I was to get them to drink this, I will need to strain it. It didn't take long to do it and came out nice and smooth. I skipped the ice cubes though, which is why i used more juice, and chilled it before serving.
Recipe : Pineapple and Mango Smoothie ( recipe slightly adapted from Curtis Stone' s Pineapple and Mango smoothie recipe)
250g mangoes, peeled and sliced
1/2 a large pineapple. ( peeled and chopped)
3 cups packed orange juice( or use fresh orange juice)
sugar to taste
Place everything in a blender and blend till smooth. Push through a sieve and chill.
