How to Make a Mango Pineapple Smoothie
Combine all the ingredients in a high-powered blender and blend until smooth. If your smoothie is thicker than you’d like, add more liquid. If you would like your smoothie thicker, add ice or more frozen fruit, until you reach your desired consistency.
Tips To Nail The Recipe
- You can use fresh or frozen fruit but if you use only fresh fruit, you will need to add ice to get that frosty consistency. For the best texture, at least one of the fruits should be frozen. If you prep ahead, slice fresh fruit and place it in a sealed bag in the freezer overnight.
- Use a high-speed blender for a smooth, creamy texture. This is especially important when blending frozen ingredients because they tend to be chunky.
- If you have leftover smoothie, squeeze a little lemon or lime juice on top in order to prevent the fruit from oxidizing.
Recipe Variations and Customization
- Fresh Fruit: Use fresh mango and pineapple. Add ice for texture and to make it cold.
- Other Fruits: This smoothie recipe works with a variety of fruits. Some other fruits to mix and match include strawberries, peaches, and frozen banana.
- Vegetables: Use zucchini instead of cucumber. You could also add spinach or kale.
- Spice: Can’t find raw turmeric? Use 1 teaspoon of turmeric powder instead.
- Non-Dairy Beverages: Depending on the flavor and consistency you want, you can replace coconut water with coconut milk, almond milk, soy milk, or any other non-dairy milk.
- Greek Yogurt: Add protein and healthy fats to your mango pineapple smoothie when you include a 1/4 cup of greek yogurt.
- Juice: For a sweeter smoothie, cut the coconut water measurement in half and add one cup of fresh mango or pineapple juice. Alternatively, use orange juice for a more complex flavor.
- Sweetener: Add 1-2 teaspoons of maple syrup or agave.
- Protein: Add your favorite protein powder or keep it natural with a teaspoon of chia seeds, hemp seeds, or flaxseed.
- Mango Pineapple Smoothie Bowl: Thicken the smoothie by adding additional frozen fruit. Then pour it into a bowl and add your favorite toppings like oats or granola.
Mango pineapple smoothies are best enjoyed immediately. But if you have leftovers, store them in an airtight jar in the fridge and consume them within 24 hours for the best taste and texture.
Are pineapple and mango good for you?
Yes. Both fruits are super nutritious and one serving of a pineapple mango smoothie is about one daily fruit serving.
Are smoothies better with milk or water?
If you are most concerned about calories and sugar, water is always a safe, healthy option. This recipe uses coconut water for added flavor and electrolytes without the fat or dairy found in milk.
