This is an extraordinary smoothie. It sounds unlikely, but it really does taste creamy and sweet – not like a tropical fruit punch pineapple but more like a revitalising milkshake with a gentleness of spice. It’s very refreshing on a hot summer’s day, and it’s also great fun to make after exercise. This Vegan Banana & Pineapple Smoothie is a delicious combination of lemon olive oil that tastes like sunshine, juicy pineapple, creamy, thick yoghurt with just a trace of ginger.

Ready in 40 minutes

Serves 2 people (or 4 depending on the glasses)

  • 400 grams pineapple, peeled and chopped into 1-inch chunks
  • 2 ripe bananas, peeled and chopped into 1-inch chunks
