By the Numbers: How to Make a Mango Pineapple Smoothie
Follow these simple step-by-step instructions to learn how to make an easy Mango Pineapple Smoothie.
Step 1: Blend Ingredients
Place one can of chilled coconut milk, 10 ounces of frozen pineapple and 10 ounces of frozen mango in a high-speed blender. Turn the blender on high and blend the ingredients together until they’re whipped and smooth. If you need to adjust the texture, slowly add about ½ cup of pineapple juice to the blender, just until you get the consistency you want. You may need a bit more or less pineapple juice, depending on the cream-to-water ratio in the coconut milk you use.
Step 2: Serve Smoothies
Pour your tropical mango pineapple smoothie from the blender into glasses and serve with straws on a hot day.
Tips for Making the Best Mango Pineapple Smoothie
Answers to all of your questions about making this delicious Mango Pineapple Smoothie recipe.
Can fresh fruit be used?
Yes, if you prefer, you can use fresh pineapple and fresh mango instead of frozen. However, you’ll probably want to add ice to give your smoothie the chilled smoothie texture you’re after.
Use different fruits. To switch up the flavors, you can use pretty much any frozen fruit – other tropical fruits, peaches, berries or any combination of fruit you enjoy. The addition of fresh or frozen banana will give this smoothie an extra creamy texture!
Choose a different juice. Orange juice and lime juice both work well in this recipe if you don’t have pineapple juice. Coconut water will give you a mellower flavor.
Substitute for coconut milk. If you don’t have a can of coconut milk handy, you can also use Greek yogurt or coconut yogurt. Or, if you want to stick with a dairy-free version, you can use your favorite non-dairy milk like almond milk or oat milk with the addition of ice for a thicker smoothie.
Tip: Check the coconut milk can
I like to check the can of coconut milk first. Give it a good shake to make sure it doesn’t swish around. It should haave a nice solid sound so you know you have a nice chunk of coconut cream in there.
Make it a smoothie bowl
This pineapple mango smoothie recipe also makes a divine smoothie bowl. Add pineapple chunks, ripe mango slices, shredded coconut, chia seeds and/or hemp seeds for a lovely variety of textures.
