Kate Percy’s tropical power punch

So, we had a pineapple (and I never know what to do with them!) and some bananas that were on the turn. Looking for ideas on the Go Faster Food website and in my copy of Kate Percy’s Go Faster Food for your Active Family, I came across a recipe for banana, mango, pineapple, tropical power punch. Result! Off to my corner shop to buy a mango.One of the things I like about Kate Percy’s recipes is that you don’t have to be a trained chef to make them, there’s not a raspberry coulis in sight! And this is typical - throw the ingredients together and whizz them up!I’m vegan so I used soya milk. The fruit is probably sweet enough for me without using the likes of almond milk as a dairy substitute. The real plus of making your own fruit drinks is that you know what's in them, no added sugar or sweetners that you get in lots of shop-bought drinks.

This recipe is ultra refreshing and I made a good-sized batch to keep in the fridge. Whenever I got back from a run or bike ride over the over a few days, I could head straight to the fridge to hit-up with my carb power punch - perfect!Ingredients (4 glasses):16 ice cubes

2 ripe mangos, peeled, stoned and chopped

1 fresh or frozen pineapple, peeled, cored and chopped

1 large banana, chopped

Juice of 1 lime

500ml soya milk
