Substitution and Addition Ideas for Smoothies with Mango and Pineapple
With plenty of customization options, there is something for everyone. Even kids will love these fruity smoothies. They are the perfect treat on a hot day!
FRESH FRUIT: If you’re using fresh, ripe mango and pineapple, you can freeze them ahead of time to achieve the desired chilled consistency.
You could also experiment with adding a variety of tropical fruits, like dragon fruit, papaya, acai, passion fruit, or lychee.
You could also use canned pineapple and frozen fruits if fresh fruits are out of season. Visit the frozen aisle at your grocery store to see what favorite fruits are available.
MILK: For a dairy-free alternative, use almond milk, coconut milk, oat milk, or soy milk to suit your dietary preferences.
COCONUT WATER: You could also use a splash of coconut water in this easy recipe.
GREEK YOGURT: Opt for non-dairy yogurt like coconut yogurt or almond yogurt for a vegan-friendly option.
HONEY: If you prefer a sugar-free version, skip the honey altogether or use a natural sweetener like agave syrup. You could also use maple syrup.
CITRUS TWIST: Infuse a splash of citrus with lime juice, orange juice, or pineapple juice to give your smoothie a tangy kick.
NUT BUTTER: Blend in a tablespoon of almond or peanut butter for added richness and a nutty undertone.
PROTEIN POWDER: Add a scoop of protein powder for a post-workout drink with a boost of protein.
Choose a neutral or vanilla protein powder that won’t overpower the fruity taste.
You could also use a fruit flavor that will enhance the natural flavors of this smoothie.
BERRIES: Mix in a handful of frozen berries like strawberries, blueberries, or raspberries to create a berry-mango blend.
BANANA: Include a ripe, frozen banana to enhance the creaminess and natural sweetness of the smoothie.
How to Make a Smoothie with Mango
It’s quick and easy to make this creamy smoothie in your blender with a handful of simple ingredients. Here’s how:
STEP ONE: Measure and have all ingredients ready. If the frozen fruits are large, chop them for easier blending.
OUR RECIPE DEVELOPER SAYS
To easily chop frozen fruits, use a sharp knife and apply slight pressure to break them into smaller pieces before blending.
STEP TWO: Place the frozen mango and pineapple in the blender.
STEP THREE: Pour in the Greek yogurt, milk, and honey.
If you like your smoothie more liquid, add a bit more milk, and if you prefer it thicker, reduce the amount of milk.
STEP FOUR: Blend from low to high, increasing speed as needed until smooth.
If you’re using a high-speed blender, the blending time might be shorter, so keep an eye on the consistency to avoid over-blending.
STEP FIVE: Check the consistency and adjust. If it is too thick, add more milk and blend again.
STEP SIX: Pour the smoothie into two glasses.
STEP SEVEN: Top with fresh pineapple or mango slices.
STEP EIGHT: Add whipped cream for extra creaminess.
STEP NINE: Serve immediately for a cold, refreshing treat.

Frequently Asked Questions
You can use fresh mango and pineapple. However, using frozen fruits helps achieve a thicker and colder smoothie without the need for ice.
To make it a thinner consistency, add a bit more milk. To make it thicker, reduce the amount of milk or increase the amount of frozen fruits.
Chop the frozen fruits into smaller pieces before blending, or let them thaw slightly at room temperature before blending.
It’s best to enjoy this tropical mango pineapple smoothie immediately after blending to retain its freshness and texture. However, you can store any leftovers in an airtight container in the freezer for one to two months. Allow it to thaw in the fridge, and then blend it for one minute to get rid of any separation that may have occurred.
You can still make this smoothie with a regular blender. You might need to blend a bit longer to achieve a smooth consistency.
