Sunshine Smoothie

This smoothie is a wonderfully bright and vibrant shade of yellow. I made it in order to contribute to the event hosted by Barbara from Winoes and Foodies called ‘A Taste of Yellow.’ I’ve left it rather late, I hope I can still contribute.
It is designed to bring attention to LIVESTRONG Day in the US, which is organized by Lance Armstrong Foundation and helps to raise awareness of people living with cancer and cancer survivorship.

The aim of ‘A Taste of Yellow’ was to make a dish containing some type of yellow food. I decided to create this smoothie which contains three types of yellow fruit. It turned out a very sunny, cheerful colour with a very tropical taste.

Mango, Pineapple and Peach Smoothie
1 mango
½ pineapple
2 peaches

Peel the pineapple and remove any of the ‘eyes’ from around the sides. Slices into cubes and place into a blender.
Remove the skin and pip from the peaches and slices into similar chunks. Add to the pineapple and blitz until you get a puree.
Peel the mango and remove the flesh from the stone. Slice into chunks and add to the puree and blitz everything together until smooth.
Makes 1 litre smoothie

I pureed the pineapple and peaches first as the mango was quite fibrous and I wanted to first create some liquid to help it blend together smoothly.
