Ingredients for this recipe
For this smoothie recipe, you only need a few simple ingredients:
- Frozen pineapple: I used frozen pineapple for this fruity smoothie, please read the FAQ below, if you want to swap this for fresh fruit. For this reipce, you can either use store-bought frozen fruit or cube and freeze your own fruit at home.
- Frozen mango: Frozen mango works best for this recipe, but check FAQ if you want to use fresh mango.
- frozen banana: makes the smoothie super creamy!
- coconut milk: works deliciously alongside the mango and pineapple flavors of the smoothie.
- ice: helps make the smoothie super thick and slushy-like. Ideally use small ice cubes as these are kinder on your blender.
- blender: I personally use a high-speed, high-power blender. If you're looking to buy one then I can't recommend Greenis enough!
How to make a Pineapple Mango Smoothie
This smoothie recipe is super easy to make:
Step 1: Preparation
If you're freezing your own fruit for this recipe, then chop the mango and pineapple into small chunks and freeze ideally overnight. Remove from the freezer about 5 minutes before you're preparing the smoothie.
Measure out the rest of your ingredients so you're ready to go.
Step 2: Blend the smoothie ingredients
Transfer the frozen pineapple, frozen mango, frozen banana, coconut milk, and ice cubes to a blender and blend on high speed until smooth and creamy.
Step 3: Serving the Pineapple Mango Smoothie
Serve the pineapple mango smoothie in a tall glass and over more ice if you fancy!
Extra tips for this recipe
- For an extra thick and creamy smoothie, use tinned coconut milk instead of drinking milk for this recipe. Ultra delicious!
- If you want your smoothie to be more on the runny side, then use fresh fruit instead of frozen, and/or add more liquid to the blender.
- Want your smoothie sweeter? No problem at all, add a drizzle of maple syrup to the blender.
- Add a small sprinkle of salt to the blender to balance the flavors of the sweet pineapple and mango. Sounds odd, but believe me: it's worth giving this a go!
- Serve your smoothie with a drizzle of passionfruit on top to make it extra fruity!
- If you love it zingy, then add a pinch of chili powder to the mix, or simply add a small piece of fresh ginger.
Frequently Asked Questions - Pineapple Mango Smoothie
You totally can! Using frozen fruit makes the smoothie super refreshing and thick, so if you swap the frozen mango and pineapple for fresh fruit, then add less coconut milk and more ice to the blender to still get a thicker texture.
There are a few delicious options if you would like to tweak the flavor of this fruity smoothie! A few delicious ideas are: ginger or chilli powder for an extra kick, apple juice for a sweeter version, ground cinnamon or chai spices for a spiced version, or fresh spinach leaves to get your greens in.
