Blue Skies Pineapple, Mango and Passion Fruit smoothie.
If you’ve ever been to a tropical country, you know that the local fruit is unlike anything you’ve tasted before. In Ghana, we could (and do) live on pineapples, mangoes and bananas. We’re constantly surprised at how good these local fruits are—we’re relearning what ripe tropical fruit can actually taste like.

That’s why our favorite Ghanaian product thus far is Blue Skies fresh fruit smoothies. Blue Skies managed to bottle up that goodness and created a drinkable fruit salad. The fruit is grown and juiced in Ghana—no sugar added (although there are 8.8 grams of sugar from the fruits!). Our personal favorite is the pineapple, mango and passion fruit smoothie. The two other blends are unadulterated pineapple juice, and a pineapple and ginger mix.  At GHc2.71 (or US$1.80) a bottle, they’re not cheap, but on a hot day or after a long walk, a splash of cold pineapple and passion fruit juice is a nice reward.

As for the gin and juice—we’ll let Snoop Dog keep sipping that, but we’re pretty sure he’d stick to just juice if he had a Blue Sky.

(No, Blue Sky didn’t pay us to write this, but we will accept free smoothies from the company in the future if offered!)
