Pineapple and Yogurt Ice Smoothie Recipe

Cooling, delicious yogurt ice comes in several flavours, including vanilla, orange and lemon, and is the perfect, lighter summer alternative to traditional ice cream. Use a really sweet, juicy pineapple and fresh, pungent basil to add plenty of vibrant colour and exotic flavour.


25g / 1oz fresh basil, plus extra sprigs to decorate
1 pineapple
4 large scoops vanilla, lemon- or orange- flavoured yogurt ice
Icing (confectioners’) sugar, for dusting


  1. Remove the basil leaves from the stems and tear them into small pieces.
  2. Cut away the skin from the pineapple, then halve the fruit and remove the core.
  3. Chop the flesh into chunks. Push the pineapple through a juicer with the basil. Chill until ready to serve.
  4. Pour the juice into 2 glasses and add two scoops of yogurt ice to each.
  5. Decorate with basil sprigs and dust lightly with icing sugar.
