Breakfast, lunch, or snack-time is the perfect time to make a pineapple smoothie! Only a few minutes is needed to mix up this mouthwatering thirst quencher. If you’ve never tried this sun-sational combination, you’re truly in for a treat.
Fruit is the ultimate ingredient for bumping up your nutrition. High in water, fiber, vitamins, and minerals, you can’t beat these powerhouse foods for ramping up your health and wellness. These three fruits in particular give us what we need to stay alive and thrive.
Mangos: Not only does this bright and fibrous fruit incorporate extra creaminess to the smoothie, but it’s usually easy to find frozen and gives a good boost of sweetness. High in vitamins A, C, K, and B-vitamins, too.
Pineapples: Adds just the right amount of tang to balance out the bananas and mangos. Both mangos and pineapple are rich in vitamin C. A good choice for helping to ramp up your digestive enzymes, too!
Bananas: Make sure that your bananas are ripe before freezing. When they’ve got brown spots, it’s the best time to peel and freeze for future use. The browner, the better! If there’s any greenish tint, you won’t get that lovely sweet flavor for your smoothie.
This fresh and fruity smoothie recipe is quite appetizing on its own, but if you love add-ins or an extra scoop of superfoods, here are some excellent options:
In only three steps and less than five minutes, you can have this mango pineapple banana smoothie in your hand and ready to slurp.
It’s best to have a high-speed blender for this recipe. Your smoothie will not only be smoother and creamier, but it will take a lot less time.
Make sure to add all of the liquids before the frozen fruit. If you’re adding greens or other additions to this smoothie, remember to add them in before you add the frozen fruit.
Usually, it takes only 30 seconds (or at max, a minute) to create a super smooth consistency. Once it’s ready, pour into 1-4 serving glasses. Or, if you’re truly hungry, drink right out of the blender! (P.S. You’ll also save on washing up…he he.)
Sweet & Tangy Smoothie Bowl: Reduce the plant milk by ½ cup to create a thicker consistency. Pour your smoothie into a bowl and garnish with pineapple tidbits (fresh or dried), thin strips of fresh mango, chia or hemp seeds, and a drizzle of almond or cashew butter.
Smoothies are always best fresh. And this one is so good that there shouldn’t be any leftovers! But if you need to save your smoothie, storing it is a breeze!
There are a couple of quick and easy options that will guarantee that the pineapple mango leftovers are still very tasty. Use either of these options for best post-smoothie results:
Just pour any extra smoothie into your favorite insulated container or water bottle. Cover and place in the fridge until ready to enjoy again. For an even better consistency, throw in a couple of frozen chunks of banana, pineapple, or mango with the smoothie and blend for just a few seconds.
Grab an empty ice cube tray and fill with the smoothie leftovers. Place in the freezer until ready to use. When you’re back in the smoothie-mood, pop out the smoothie cubes and place into the blender with a bit of extra plant-based milk. Blend until creamy and smooth.
If you can’t find any frozen pineapple, no problem! Make sure that your banana and mango are frozen and substitute 1 cup of fresh pineapple for the frozen. Just reduce the plant-based milk by ¼ cup so that the smoothie isn’t too runny.
Use sweetened, instead of unsweetened dairy-free milk. Feel free to add a tablespoon or two of agave or maple syrup to the smoothie, or a couple of soft, soaked pitted dates.
Both mango and pineapple are warm-weather, tropical fruits so they pair well with other fruits from the same climate. Choose fruits such as bananas, papaya, coconut, kiwi, and avocado to blend with pineapple and mangos.
Pineapples and mangos are both high in fiber and antioxidants. While mango contains more vitamin A, folate, and vitamin E, pineapples score better for manganese and vitamin C.
Instead of opting for anything made at McDonald’s (which will be full of chemicals and artificial flavors, while low in actual fruit content), we encourage you to give this mango pineapple smoothie recipe a try. It will not only be quick to make and very inexpensive, but our yummy smoothie will be packed with healthy ingredients such as fiber, water, vitamins, and minerals.
