The sun's still shining in the southern hemisphere, so we're making hay while we still can. Or smoothies as the case may be. This particular concoction's inspiration is two-fold. Firstly it reminds me of the classic Mango Weiss ice cream bars. For those of you who haven't tried them, they're a smooth creamy icy blend of yoghurt and mango - rather delicious.

Mango Weis' Ice Cream Bar

The second part pays homage to my beloved travels around South East Asia (Thailand, Laos, Vietnam, and my favourites - Borneo and Cambodia). There you can get every tropical fruit under the sun blended into a 'shake', all for the incredible sum of 1 US dollar ($1.08-$1.15 in AU and NZ). They're usually made with lots of fresh fruit (with low to no food miles), ice, and a generous helping of sweetened condensed milk. This version recreates that same creamy sweetness with the help of our good friend - plant-based milk, and nature's whole food sweetener - dates.

How to
  1. Add all ingredients to a high speed blender, with the liquid on the bottom and the ice on the top.
  2. Blend for 1-2 minutes until super silky smooth, top with fresh mint leaves, and serve immediately. You can also pop it in the freezer for half an hour to firm up slightly then eat with a spoon as a frosty style gelato.

The perfect summer's-still-here afternoon beverage. Hope you love it.
