Healthy and Refreshing Summer Cocktail

Quite often during such hot and humid weather, like we’ve had lately, there is no nicer feeling than finding a nice, cold, refreshing drink to quench our thirst and help cool us down. A lot of the time though we can never quite find a healthy option at our finger tips that really satisfies the taste buds. So, this afternoon I once again fired up the blender in search of a really simple, healthy and refreshing drink that really does hit the spot every time; here’s what I came up with, give it a go and let me know what you think!


  • 1 large handful of Crushed Ice
  • 3-4 chopped strawberries
  • 3-4 chunks of mango (I used frozen)
  • 5-6 chunks of fresh pineapple
  • Half a scoop of Strawberry & Banana High Pro

Healthy and Refreshing Summer Cocktail

Blend everything together until smooth and serve over ice

Then enjoy!

About Roy Barber

‘I am aspiring athlete and fitness enthusiast, currently studying Sport and Exercise Science at Loughborough University, widely regarded as the best course of its type in Europe. I am currently a 3 time County Athletics gold medallist over the sprint disciplines at junior level and am working hard every single day to continually improve myself mentally, physically and athletically. With a great passion for all things fitness and sport, I hope over the coming years to forge a successful and fruitful career in sport, dealing with a variety of aspects such as strength and conditioning, nutrition and recovery. ‘ ‘I ended up at Loughborough studying what I am because I’ve known for a few years now if I was going to go to university, sports science was the degree for me, I’ve always loved sport, PE and learning about all the different areas of science in relation to the human body so it was a natural move for me. In terms of why Loughborough specifically, I always heard great things about the university, I had a relative who came here and loved it, and I was incredibly impressed with the campus when I came on an open day and fell in love with the place. Who inspires me to compete is a more difficult question, I’d have to start by saying my coach who has done a fantastic job in turning me into a 'proper athlete'. I am also inspired by a range of people in my life, from world class athletes to friends and family. Roy Barber is 20 years old and comes from a small Leicestershire town called Market Harborough
