Shakes W/Abishek – Tropical Smoothie!

Hey UBC,

Welcome back to the fourth edition of Shakes W/Abishek. Come join me every month as we try a new smoothie or shake recipe that not only fuels our bodies but helps us get moving and grooving!

This month, we are going to try a Tropical Smoothie recipe. This tropical blast is rich in antioxidants, fibers, and vitamins. This smoothie is versatile and can be paired well with any occasion and is especially essential to make the most out of your summer. It is also an amazing post-workout smoothie that you can optionally pair with protein powder or chia seeds to help energize your body!




  • 2  Cups – Pineapple (Fresh)
  • 1 – Sliced Mango (Fresh or Frozen)
  • 1 –  Sliced Banana (Fresh or Frozen)
  • 1/2 – Cup – Greek Yogurt
  • 1  1/2 – Cup – Pineapple Juice
  • Optional – 1 Cup – Protein Powder

Equipment Needed:

  • Blender 
  • Knife 
  • Cutting Board
  • Cup
  • Optional – Straw 




How to Prep:

    1. Cut up your banana, mango, and pineapple on your cutting board and measure out 1/2 a cup of greek yogurt and place them in your blender. 
    2. Pour 1 ½  cups of pineapple juice into your blender. 
    3. Blend all your ingredients for approximately 15 to 25 seconds. If your blender has a “smoothie” option that will do the job as well. 
    4. After you are done blending, pour your smoothie into your cup and enjoy!
  • Optional – Feel free to add one cup of a protein powder of your choice, I recommend vanilla or chia seeds to your blender. 


This is a quick, easy and nutritious smoothie recipe that you definitely need to try out! Try it and let us know what you think! See you next month for Shakes W/Abishek!
