Ingredients For Mango Pineapple Smoothie
As we mentioned already, you can easily add or swap out the ingredients here for your liking or what you have on hand. These are the basic ingredients that you’ll need to get started.
Fresh or frozen mango: You’ll need about a cup for this recipe.
Fresh or frozen pineapple: 3/4 of a cup, canned, frozen or fresh.
Banana: Also can be fresh or frozen, you’ll need 1/2 banana.
Milk: We use regular milk, but almond or soy milk will also work.
Honey: Optional, depending on how sweet your fruit is.
Is It Best To Use Fresh Or Frozen Fruit For A Smoothie?
Using frozen fruit (which is our preference) is what makes this Mango Pineapple Smoothie so creamy and thick. If you opt for using all fresh fruit then you’ll want to add a couple of ice cubes to the blender to help the process along.
Again, you can use a combination of fresh and frozen, too. It’s really whatever you have on hand. For this smoothie we used frozen pineapple, frozen mango and a half of a ripe, fresh banana.
How To Make A Mango Pineapple Smoothie
Making a smoothie could be easier to do. Just add all of the ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth. If the smoothie is too thick and isn’t blending properly, just add a little more milk to help it along.
Pour the smoothie into a tall glass and serve with a pineapple garnish and a fun umbrella (if you have one!).
Can You Save A Smoothie In The Fridge?
You can definitely save these smoothies if you don’t finish them, or if you want to make one in advance. The smoothie will separate as it sits in the refrigerator though, so you’ll most likely have to blend it again to combine the ingredients.
Because these smoothies are so easy to make, we usually just make them as we want them. Using a personal blender is a great way to make these, too! I don’t think a day goes by that one of our kids isn’t making some flavor smoothie for a snack.
What Can I Add Into A Smoothie Recipe?
Pretty much anything you like. Of course, any type berry or fruit will work, except maybe harder fruits like apples or pears. They usually blend up fine but often leave larger chunks so your smoothies won’t be “smooth”.
