What’s A Mango Pineapple Smoothie?
Mango Pineapple Smoothie is one of these simple mango smoothie recipes that you can have every day for breakfast or to snack on in the afternoon.
It’s a creamy, thick, and fruity smoothie that is also a fulfilling and low-calorie snack.
How To Make Mango Pineapple Smoothie
It’s very easy to make any smoothie, but what makes the difference between a simple smoothie and a tasty smoothie is the ratio of each ingredient.
Here you will need:
- Frozen Banana – Don’t add too much banana as it can be overpowering.
- Frozen Mango Chunks – This is the best frozen fruit to also add a creamy texture to smoothies.
- Fresh Pineapple – Frozen pineapple works as well but it won’t deliver the same flavor. If you do use frozen, reduce the number of ice cubes and increase the liquid or the smoothie won’t blend properly.
- Coconut Milk – Coconut milk gives the best tropical flavor but any non-dairy milk work.
- Ice Cubes
Now, pick some of the below flavors to add some fun to your Mango Pineapple Smoothie.
The best add-ons are:
- Rolled Oats – for a breakfast smoothie, add one tablespoon of oats.
- Chia Seeds – for a boost of protein or fiber add 1 teaspoon.
- Greek Yogurt – add 1/4 cup of any yogurt you like for a boost of protein and creamy texture. Greek coconut yogurt is dairy-free and a great dairy-free alternative that we love. Vanilla yogurt is a delicious option too to add sweetness and vanilla hint to the smoothie drink.
- Sweetener – If you have a strong sweet tooth, add 1 or 2 teaspoons of maple syrup.
- Fresh Mint Leaves
- Pinch of Cinnamon or cardamom to spice things up!
To make this smoothie, simply add all the ingredients to a blender and blend on the high-speed setting until creamy and thick.
Adjusting The Texture
We all have different expectations when it comes to smoothie texture.
Some people love it ultra-thick – as this recipe delivers – or thinner.
- To thin out a smoothie – add more milk, water, or any juice like orange juice or lemon juice.
- To thicken a smoothie – add more ice cubes for a frothy texture or seeds or more frozen fruit for a texture similar to a smoothie bowl.
You can serve this Mango Pineapple Smoothie as a breakfast smoothie or snack, plain in a glass or in a bowl with some toppings like:
- Homemade peanut butter granola
- Shredded coconut or toasted coconut flakes
- Sliced almonds
- Grain-free granola
- A drizzle of peanut butter or cashew butter
Frequently Asked Questions
Can I Use Fresh Mango?
Yes, you can use fresh fruits but the fewer frozen fruits you use, the less creamy and frothy the texture will be.
So to balance that add some more ice cubes to the recipe.
Can I use this recipe as a smoothie bowl?
Yes, it’s a super thick smoothie recipe and a great breakfast bowl to top with granola cereals or any breakfast toppings you love.
Can I skip the banana?
Sure, you can replace banana with more pineapple or more mango.
Can I add protein to the smoothie?
You can add protein via the addition of a teaspoon of chia seeds, hemp seeds, or flaxseed.
If you want to add protein powder into the recipe, you will need more milk as well or the smoothie will be way too thick.
Add 1/4 cup of vanilla protein powder along with 1/2 cup of almond milk is a great protein boost.
