Mango Pineapple Smoothie

by Erin @ Food Doodles on

This mango pineapple smoothie is super thick, creamy and can also be made paleo, vegan and dairy-free.

Tropical smoothies are my thing in the winter. Grey + rainy for days on end? Time for this mango smoothie!

A few weeks ago, my son ate an old mushy mango and thought it was the best thing EVER. He was upset when it was all gone so I bought more the next day.

If you have or have had a toddler, then you know that obviously he didn’t want anything to do with the 7 fresh, non-mushy mangoes I then had sitting on my kitchen counter.

So they’re going to the freezer! Here’s how to freeze mangoes. Frozen mangoes are perfect for smoothies so I’m not too broken up over my overabundance of mangoes.

You can do the same with bananas if you notice them getting a bit too brown and you’re sick of making goodies like these Spelt Banana Muffins, Healthy Oatmeal Breakfast Cookies or this Banana Baked Oatmeal.

This smoothie is super simple to make vegan, paleo and dairy-free. Just use dairy-free milk. Coconut milk is great and adds a bit of healthy fat, which I like so that I’m not just drinking sugar.

For an even thicker version, coconut milk yogurt (or Greek yogurt, if you can have dairy) works. 

If you try this mango pineapple smoothie out, I’d love to hear how you like it!

This was like drinking a tropical holiday from a glass 🙂 Reminds me of those summers cocktails but a healthy kind. PS. I added some vanilla protein powder and it worked well.

Smoothies are the most wonderfully delicious things and this one is no exception. Mangos are out of season in Australia. We are known for our superb quality mangos and smoothies are a great way to showcase and enjoy them.
