Description

This refreshing tropical smoothie consists of just three ingredients: frozen mango, frozen pineapple and coconut milk. That's seriously it! The result is a healthy mango pinapple smoothie that's ready in under 5 minutes, perfect for a quick breakfast or afternoon snack! Naturally vegan and dairy-free.


Ingredients

Units Scale
  • 1 cup frozen pineapple chunks
  • 1 cup frozen mango chunks
  • 1 cup full-fat unsweetened coconut milk (shaken to incorporate the coconut cream with the coconut water from a 13-ounce can)

Instructions

  1. Add all ingredients to a high-speed blender and blend until perfectly smooth and creamy. If your blender has trouble processing the frozen chunks, let them thaw for a bit at room temperature and try again. Or, use a tamper to push the frozen fruit into the blades.
  2. Serve immediately. See the notes section below for optional add-ins and boosters as well as information on ingredient swaps.

Notes

Be careful not to overblend! Blending for too long may cause the smoothie to become warm or give it a thinner consistency. Pay attention while blending and stop when you see a smooth, thick and creamy texture.

Fresh fruit: For a super creamy mango pineapple smoothie, I would not recommend replacing the frozen chunks with fresh mango or fresh pineapple. Doing so will still give you the same fruity flavors, but the consistency will be completely different, more like a juice. You will need to add ice to the blender and the smoothie will not be as creamy.

Plant-based milk: The healthy fats from the coconut milk play a huge role in the creaminess of this smoothie, plus the coconut milk is what gives you that tropical island feel. If replaced with almond milk or oat milk, it will still taste delicious but will be a totally different smoothi!

Optional Add-Ins and Boosters:

  • A pinch of salt will bring out the flavors more since the coconut milk contains no salt
  • Lime juice and/or lime zest will add a little tang and give a more tropical feel
  • Chia seeds, hemp seeds and/or protein powder can be added for a boost of protein 
  • A handful of fresh spinach adds some greens without the taste
  • Medjool dates or a tablespoon of maple syrup will provide even more sweetness (the smoothie will be naturally sweet on its own already so I don't see the need for any added sugar)
