Ingredients for Mango Pineapple Smoothie
A complete list of ingredients and amounts can be found in the recipe card below. Here are some specific notes and substitutions.
MANGO - I highly recommend using frozen mango. Frozen mango helps to create a creamy texture and keeps the smoothie nice and cold.
PINEAPPLE - You can use either fresh or frozen. I find that fresh is sweeter, so I like fresh, but either will work.
COCONUT MILK - I highly recommend using light coconut milk from the can. It adds a slight coconut flavor and is also much better for you than coconut milk from the fridge. That said, you can use any variation of milk you like or have on hand.
GREEK YOGURT - I like using Greek yogurt because it's extra creamy and adds some protein. However, any plain unsweetened yogurt can be used.
Clean food tip: Look for organic yogurt to ensure there are no hormones and antibiotics. Also make sure your yogurt is plain and unsweetened.
How to Make
Step 1: Add all ingredients to a high-speed blender, starting with the milk.
Step 2: Blend on high until creamy and ingredients are fully blended.
Step 3: Pour into a glass, sip, and enjoy!
Add-ins for a Nutrient Boost
This mango pineapple smoothie is already nutritious and is a good source of vitamin A, vitamin C, K, protein, probiotics, and it boosts immunity. However, if you'd really like to stock up on nutrients, try adding some of the below!
Super seeds: I look for any excuse where I can add in chia seeds, flaxseeds, or hempseeds. For this smoothie, recommend adding 2 tablespoons of chia seeds or hempseeds.
Extra veggies: Adding frozen cauliflower is a great way to add more nutrients without affecting the flavor.
Make it a green smoothie: Add in a handful of spinach and/or kale.
Using Fresh vs. Frozen Fruit
As written, this recipe calls for fresh pineapple and frozen mango.
I like using fresh pineapple as I find it to be sweeter and have more flavor.
And I like using frozen mango for the creaminess it provides and it also makes this smoothie nice and cold.
That said, you can use all fresh fruit or all frozen. If using all fresh fruit, I would add in a handful of ice cubes so it's nice and cold!
Tips for the Best Smoothie
Use a high-speed blender: For the best smooth and creamy texture, make sure you are using a high-speed blender. This helps so you aren't left with chunks and the fruit is evenly blended.
Add liquid to blender first: This will help the blender mix the smoothie more evenly. Also, starting with solids at the bottom could damage the blades overtime.
Garnish with fruit or citrus: Before serving, add some fresh pineapple or mango chunks and/or a slice of lime.
Adjusting consistency: Start with a minimal amount of milk until you reach your desired consistency. For a thicker/creamier texture, use less milk. For a thinner more drinkable consistency, add additional milk until desired consistency is reached.
Yep! Use dairy-free Greek yogurt or any dairy-free yogurt of your choice.
That's totally up to you. I don't like ice cubes in my smoothies as they make them more "ice-y" and take away from the creamy texture. If you are using all fresh fruit, however, I definitely recommend ice so it's nice and cold.
Smoothies are best enjoyed fresh, but this can be stored in the fridge for up to 24 hours. Just give it a good stir before drinking.
Pineapple Mango Smoothie
- 1 high-speed blender
- ¾ cup light coconut milk (see notes)
- ⅓ cup Greek yogurt (plain/unsweetened)
- ¾ cup sliced pineapple (fresh or frozen)
- 1 cup frozen mango pieces
- Add all ingredients to a high-speed blender, starting with the milk. Blend on high until ingredients are fully blended.
- Pour into a glass, sip, and enjoy!
- I use lite canned coconut milk. Full-fat coconut milk from the can will be too thick. However, if you do use full-fat, you can thin it out with some water. The coconut milk can also be replaced with any milk or even water.
- To make dairy free, use dairy-free Greek yogurt (I like Kite Hill).
- Add the liquid to the blender first. This will mix the smoothie more evenly.
- Start with a minimal amount of milk until you reach your desired consistency. For a thicker/creamier texture, use less milk. For a thinner more drinkable consistency, add additional milk until desired consistency is reached.
- For extra protein, add as scoop of vanilla protein (Truvani is my favorite) or unflavored, like Vital Proteins collagen peptides.
