How to Make - Step by Step Instructions
Once you have decided on the ingredients you’ll use in your drink, it’s time to start blending! You can make this quick and easy pineapple mango smoothie in just two steps:
Step 1 – Add the Ingredients to the Blender
Pour the almond milk into the pitcher of your blender.
Then, add the remaining ingredients in the order listed in the ingredient list.
Step 2 – Blend Until Smooth
Place the lid securely on the top of the blender and process the ingredients until smooth. If your smoothie is too thick, add a small amount of water and blend until the desired consistency is reached. Serve immediately.
Tips & Tricks
- Start with frozen fruit for a thicker smoothie. When making your smoothie, it’s a good idea to start with frozen mango, pineapple, and banana pieces for the best results. Frozen fruit reduces the amount of ice you’ll need to thicken your smoothie and helps add even more fruit flavor to your drink without diluting it with ice and water.
- Pulse, then blend for best results. When starting with frozen ingredients, you need to give your blender a chance to chop the fruits before fully blending the ingredients thoroughly. Pulse the blender a few times to allow the blades to chop the frozen fruits, then use the blend function to process all the ingredients together until you reach a smooth consistency.
- Add oatmeal for a creamy texture. If you enjoy your smoothie for breakfast, bulk up the drink with a little bit of cooked oatmeal. For example, you can add a few tablespoons of oatmeal to your mango pineapple smoothie to thicken it and make it creamier.
- Make it sweeter with honey. While the fruit in this tropical smoothie recipe should make it sweet enough, if you’re looking to give your smoothie even more sweetness, try honey. A small amount of honey added to the blender will sweeten the smoothie without adding processed sugar to the drink.
Toppings and Serving Suggestions
This quick and easy tropical smoothie recipe is perfect for a hot day. But that doesn’t mean you can’t add to the recipe to make it even better! Try one of these topping or add-in ideas for an even more delicious drink:
- Garnish with fresh mint leaves
- Top with chia seeds
- Garnish with a dollop of whipped cream
- Sprinkle coconut flakes on top

How to Store
This pineapple and mango smoothie recipe is best when enjoyed right out of the blender. However, if you have leftovers, you can easily store any extras in the fridge. In fact, you can make a double batch of this recipe to enjoy the next day if you’re tight on time.
Your extra smoothie can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 24 hours. But note, it's best to store your smoothie in a container where the liquid reaches the top to keep extra air from contaminating the ingredients - this will keep your smoothie from browning.
Meal Prep Idea
Another great way to speed up the preparation process and have breakfast at the ready is to pre-portion your ingredients for easy blending.
- Portion the ingredients for your smoothie, except for the almond milk, in a freezer bag.
- Remove the excess air, label, and store the bag in the refrigerator or freezer until you’re ready to blend.
- When ready to use, add the almond milk to the blender and pour in the remaining ingredients from your freezer bag and blend as usual.
Note: with frozen fruit, you probably won't need to add the ice to your mango and pineapple smoothie.
