Mango Berry Probiotic Yoghurt Smoothie

Mango Berry Probiotic Yoghurt Smoothie

Hello Everyone! If you read my post last week, I mentioned that in the upcoming weeks ahead, I’ll be featuring recipes using Binda Valley’s Probiotic Drinking Yoghurt and/or Greek Style Yoghurt that Gourmet Direct PH sent over in mid January. Last week I shared a recipe for Peach Mango Pie Probiotic Yoghurt Smoothie Bowl and this week I’ll also be sharing another smoothie recipe.

This Mango Berry Smoothie Probiotic Yoghurt Smoothie combines the delicious flavors of a juicy sweet mango together with tangy berries in one refreshing drink. Since berries aren’t native to the Philippines (except for strawberries where you can source locally), I decided to use frozen mixed berries to make this smoothie. You can also use fresh berries for this recipe but I find that they don’t give off a vibrant colour as opposed to using frozen fruit. Also, using frozen fruit gives the smoothie a nice and thick consistency.

To be honest, I was never really a smoothie kind of person until I left for Australia for my university studies. I always cherished my sleep more than waking up early in the morning to prepare my breakfast. I leave just enough time to shower, get ready, and dash out the door, grabbing breakfast either on campus or just outside my workplace during my internship. While this worked out fine, I realised I was spending so much money for breakfast. I remember getting toast with ricotta and berries for AUD 8 (almost 300 PHP) which is like a full fancy meal here in the Philippines or 3 full fast food meals.

Not that this smoothie is any cheaper than a fast food breakfast meal, but if you’re pressed for time in the mornings, and want to eat healthier, this smoothie is perfect for a quick and on-the-go breakfast. All you need to do is add an extra 5 minutes to your morning routine!

Peach Mango Pie Probiotic Yoghurt Smoothie Bowl

Peach Mango Pie Probiotic Yoghurt Smoothie Bowl

Hello Everyone! Last week I received a message from Gourmet Direct PH asking if they could deliver some yoghurt by Binda Valley to me to use in my recipes, to which I said yes to since I also collaborated with them last year when they sent Nuttelex products over to create recipes for the holiday season. I was actually very surprised by their generosity as I did not expect to receive 2 bottles of Probiotic Drinking Yoghurt (1 kg each), 1 tub (1 kg) of Natural Greek Style Yoghurt, and 1 tub (1 kg) of Vanilla Greek Style Yoghurt, all worth P1,560.00 in total. So expect to see some yoghurt-centered recipes over the next few weeks on Amcarmen’s Kitchen.

Tonight, I will be sharing a recipe using the Probiotic Drinking Yoghurt. While you can enjoy it as a drink on its own, you can also use it in your baking, add it to your cereal for breakfast, or in my case, use it as a base for a delicious smoothie! Binda Valley’s Probiotic Yoghurt is made from 100% Australian ingredients – the freshest milk to give it its deliciously rich and creamy texture. In addition, Probiotic Yoghurt also contains a lot of vitamins and minerals to promote a healthy digestive system.

The idea behind the flavour of this smoothie bowl is inspired by Jollibee’s famous Peach Mango Pie. You’ve got the sweet peach and juicy mango blended together with some cinnamon and nutmeg for that pie flavour, and topped with granola for the crusty pie texture to complete it. Unlike a deep fried pie pocket, this smoothie bowl is rich in protein, vitamins, and minerals.

This Peach Mango Pie Probiotic Yoghurt Smoothie Bowl is the perfect weekend breakfast bowl to jumpstart your day in the morning or to cool off with after an afternoon workout. It’s also a healthier option to satisfy your sweet tooth at night. You can get creative with the toppings as well by adding things like assorted fruits, nuts, seeds, and granola to name a few. Since peaches aren’t native to the Philippines, I decided to use canned peaches that I froze in the freezer overnight before making this smoothie bowl. But if you’re living in a country where fresh peaches are available locally and in season, then it’s best to buy them fresh and freeze them yourself. It’s important to use frozen fruit for this smoothie so that you get a nice and thick consistency.

I’m also contributing this recipe to an open collaboration on Instagram (not run by me) called No Flame, No Fire Recipes where we basically have to share recipes that do not require to be cooked. The collaboration started today and runs until Saturday hence why I posted this recipe today, Thursday, instead of my usual Wednesday night schedule.
