Mango and Pineapple Smoothie is a delicious, thick, creamy, tropical treat! This one is made in seconds with only four ingredients. If you're looking for a sweet plant-based drink without coconut, yogurt, or any special powder, you've come to the right place.
Smoothies are a great way to incorporate real, whole, raw foods into your diet. This one is all fruit, so you'll really enjoy consuming those nutrients! It suits gluten free, vegan, dairy free, grain free, and nut free diets.

You don't need to be absolutely precise in your measurements this time. With ingredients like these ones, it's pretty difficult to go wrong!
- Mango - Although it's challenging to find, I prefer to use a nice, fresh mango. Peel it and cut it into chunks, steering your knife carefully along the sides of the pit. Alternatively, you could substitute chunks of frozen mango.
- Pineapple - Either fresh or frozen pineapple will work for this recipe. While you would lose a bit of the nutrition of the raw fruit, you could also use pineapple that has been canned in its own juices.
- Banana - Smoothies are a great way to use bananas that are on the verge of becoming overripe. Peel such bananas, cut them into chunks, and freeze them in a zip-lock bag for occasions such as this.
- Pineapple Juice - Juice is a great alternative to milk or water and makes this smoothie an extra-special treat.

Combine the four ingredients in a blender jar.
Process on high speed for 20 seconds, and it's done!
Hint: At least one of your fruit ingredients should be frozen to keep your blended smoothie from becoming warm from the friction of the blender.
If you'd like some help with cutting a fresh mango, Lisa, on A Day in the Kitchen, peels and cuts her mango the way I do.
Sonja, of A Couple Cooks, has made a great video of how to cut a pineapple.
If you're out of any one of the three fruits in this recipe, substitute an equal amount of one of the others. You'll get a different, but pleasing result.
Equipment can have a big impact on how a recipe turns out. While it takes only 20 seconds to process this smoothie in a high-speed blender, it might take a little longer in a regular one.
I like my Blendtec blender with the Wildside jar. It keeps returning all of the ingredients nicely into the blades. The blades aren't sharp, so they won't nick your spatula or cut your fingers during cleaning.
Store any leftover smoothie covered, in the refrigerator. Try to use it up within a day.
Don't overly process your smoothie as the friction created by the blender might make it become warm.
Mango pairs beautifully with pineapple and other tropical fruits such as bananas, oranges, and grapefruit.
Mangoes are a good source of antioxidants such as vitamin C, so they support a healthy immune system. They also provide fiber, which is good for the intestines.
Pineapple is loaded with nutrients, antioxidants, and enzymes while remaining low in calories.

Mango and Pineapple Smoothie
- 1 cup pineapple juice
- 1 cup mango chunks (or 1 small mango) fresh or frozen
- 1 cup pineapple chunks fresh or frozen
- 1 medium banana fresh, or frozen chunks
- Simply add all ingredients to the jar of a blender and process at high speed for 20 seconds. Pour into glasses and enjoy!
- I recommend starting with one frozen ingredient, so your smoothie isn't warm from the friction of the blender. This can be either the mango, pineapple, or banana chunks.
- This is a recipe that allows you some leeway with your ingredients. The quantities don't have to be exact. Adding a little more of any ingredient won't spoil your smoothie.
- I tested this recipe with a high-speed blender. A smoothie might need to process a little longer in a regular blender.
