Apple Tropics

Like I have mentioned before, I hardly own any cookbooks. I always tend to note down recipes in my little black diary from books, Internet, blogs, television etc…. After moving to Melbourne, I enjoy the free library service offered here, viciously attacking the cookbook section (I am sure I will not be able to go through each of these in this lifetime).

The only cookbook I actually own is one gifted by my husband – a random act of love that sweeps me off my feet every time I lay eyes on the book. Nothing rare or unique, the book is titled ‘101 Fantastic Juices and Smoothies’ by Natalie Savona – a collection of fresh fruit juices and smoothies with information on nutrients contained in each drink.

The book is a health freak’s delight! I am no health freak but I am a juice freak and I love the innumerable combinations detailed in this one. Though the book has been in my possession for over 5 odd years, I have actually not tried anything before. But recently, happened to bring it out from my storage with a vow to make each of the 101 drinks outlined in the book.

So the first one in the list is Apple Tropics – a tangy, tropical delight perfect to beat the scorching heat.




This drink is an energy booster and great for immunity and digestion. Contains a myriad of nutrients like vitamin C, beta-carotene, phosphorous, calcium, magnesium, folic acid, sulphur and potassium.


1. Ripe, red apples – 3, washed and cubed
2. Ripe pineapple – ½, cubed
3. Passion fruit – 1/2


• Blend the apples and pineapple well. Do not pass through a strainer to retain the fiber content.
• Scoop out passion fruit flesh into the drink and stir before serving.

Note – No extra sugar is needed and if you prefer it sweeter, add honey which is a healthier option.



Do you prepare fruit juices and smoothies at home? What are your favourite combinations?
