Good Morning Sunshine
At my house, we all love a good smoothie. We can make a big batch for everyone or make each smoothie to order, they are so simple to make. Obviously, in the summer they are so cooling and refreshing, and just the perfect drink but we also love smoothies in the winter to boost our spirits on cold, dark days. Mangos are literally little orbs of sunshine that we love eating year-round. These Mango Pineapple Smoothies are the type of smoothie that is more like a slushy so the mango adds a bit of creaminess and a sweet boldness of flavor that pairs perfectly with so many different fruits, especially pineapple and banana! Using frozen fruit allows us to keep the ingredients on hand and make these smoothies whenever we want and believe me, we enjoy this sunshine in a cup often!

Frozen: Using frozen fruit makes this an easy recipe to throw together so you’ll need frozen mango and frozen pineapple. If you have chopped, frozen bananas in your freezer you can use that too, instead of a fresh banana.
Fresh Fruit: If you don’t have or want to use a frozen banana, you will need one fresh banana.
Water: The fruit you’ll be blending is creamy enough that you can use water for the liquid portion of this smoothie. You could also use coconut water for an even bigger tropical vibe.
Optional: Feel free to add toppings like toasted coconut on top, or for a smoothie that will really fill you up, mix in a scoop of vanilla protein powder.
How to Make Mango Pineapple Smoothie
STEP ONE: Measure out your ingredients and then add them to a blender or a food processor.
STEP TWO: Blend until everything is smooth and there are no chunks of fruit. You may need to stop the blender and scrape down the sides to help toward the beginning.
STEP THREE: Pour the smoothies into glasses and enjoy, with or without toppings!
Tips for Success
- To keep this Mango Pineapple Smoothie simple and delicious, using frozen mango and pineapple is a must. Either a fresh or frozen banana can be used though, depending on what you’d like to use.
- If you’ll be making more than two smoothies, you’ll want to work in batches so that you don’t have an overflowing blender.
- When adding any kind of powder, like protein powder or superfood powder, add one serving as you would to any drink. There shouldn’t be any need to add more milk unless your powder is very thick, in which case add small amounts of milk until the consistency is smooth.
What fruits can you mix with pineapple?
Pineapple is a wonderful tropical fruit that goes perfectly with other tropical fruits and citrus. A few ideal fruit combinations could be coconut, passion fruit, oranges, or grapefruit. Try adding some other fruits you love to this smoothie and see how amazing it can be!
Can I add milk or yogurt to thicken this Mango Pineapple Smoothie?
Yes, you can add more yogurt to thicken this smoothie – although it’s fairly thick already. I’d start with adding 1/4 cup of yogurt and work from there.
You can use more milk or orange juice to thin out the smoothie as needed. I use this trick when I want to turn this recipe into a smoothie bowl.

- 3/4 cup plain Greek yogurt
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1/4 cup orange juice
- 2 cup frozen pineapple chunks (see note)
- 1 1/2 cups frozen mango chunks (see note)
- Add the greek yogurt, milk, orange juice, and banana to a large, high-speed blender. Then add the frozen pineapple and mango chunks on top
- Cover and blend until smooth. This smoothie is very thick and only good blenders will be able to make it. To thin it out you can add some more orange juice or milk until it blends smooth.
- Pour into glasses and serve immediately.
- I used plain yogurt, but you can add more sweetness or additional flavor by substituting a tropical-flavored or vanilla Greek yogurt.
- I buy pre-frozen fruit because the stays in separate smaller chunks and it’s more convenient. If you prefer to use fresh fruit, you’ll need about 1/2 – 1 pineapple and 1-2 mangoes depending on the size.

I absolutely despise bananas. What can I substitute for them?
