Dairy-Free Island Smoothie

Happy Hump Day! Welcome to the official first monthly recipe round-up featured here on Fuchsia Freezer! Myself and 4 other very talented food bloggers have joined forces and become Foodie Mamas! The last wednesday of every month you will get a chance to check out what each of us has created for that months ingredient pick. Yup, we each have to push ourselves a little and come up with a recipe based on one ingredient that was chosen by one of us. This month we have Mangoes! Yum! And how perfect for the beginning of summer.

Dairy-Free Island Smoothies

Please join me in saying welcome to Chrissie from The Busy Baker, Kim from Feed Me Seymour, Deepika from Easy Baby Meals and Sabrina from Dinner Then Dessert. Each of these ladies takes a new and fresh approach to food blogging, and I consider myself very lucky to be featured among such great talent. Make sure you take a moment and check them out! Also stay tuned at the bottom of this post you will get a chance to see their creations! 🙂

Smoothie Ingredients

Now onto the mangoes… we all had to come up with a recipe revolving around this delicious, brightly coloured fruit and I was really excited to dig in. As some of you may have read before, I’m pregnant  with our third daughter. My youngest (now… soon to be middle) daughter experienced a dairy allergy after she was born. This was a huge a surprise and proved to be more challenging then I ever anticipated. In saying that, I am now venturing into the world of dairy-free recipes (since I have to eliminate all dairy from my system). Rest assured though, my family still enjoys cheese, yogurt & milk in all of its glory, so I will still be making food based around those ingredients as well :). I don’t always want to make two meals though, so I took this opportunity to kick breakfast, lunch or snack time up a notch, and I made a Dairy-Free Island Smoothie. Since I am new to the dairy-free world, please feel free to give advice on any products and recipes you’ve used and love!

    1. I’m new to the coconut yogurt world, but I did like that it gave them a smooth creamy consistency. And the ice thickened it up a little

  1. I LOVE MANGOES!!! They are a big part of growing up in Australia. I particularly love your Mango Sorbet but actually all the photos are tempting. Great concept with the #FoodieMamas. thanks for sharing with us at #WednesdaysWisdom

  2. Wow you learn something new everyday, I didn’t even know coconut yogurt existed! Mango and pineapple are two fruits I don’t usually put in my smoothies but the combination sounds delicious! I will have to try it. Thanks for joining the Link-It To Me Link Party this week, I hope you will party with us again next week!
