Mango Pineapple Breakfast Smoothie Recipe

Yields: 2 Servings
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Blend Time: 1-2 minutes

Ingredients

Fruit:

  • 1 cup frozen mango chunks
  • 1 cup frozen pineapple chunks

Liquid Base:

  • 1 cup milk (dairy milk, almond milk, coconut milk, soy milk – your choice!)
  • 1/2 cup orange juice (optional, adds extra sweetness and tang)

Creaminess:

  • 1/2 cup plain or vanilla Greek yogurt

Optional Boosters:

  • 1-2 tablespoons chia seeds or flax seeds
  • 1 scoop protein powder (vanilla goes well with the flavors)
  • A handful of fresh spinach or kale (adds nutrition, won’t overpower the taste)

Instructions

  • Gather Ingredients: Measure out all your ingredients for a smooth process.
  • Combine in Blender: Add all the ingredients to a high-powered blender. Start with the liquid base to aid in smooth blending.
  • Blend!: Blend on high speed until you have a super smooth and creamy consistency, approximately 1-2 minutes. Scrape down the sides of the blender halfway through if needed.
  • Adjust Consistency: If it seems too thick, add a bit of extra liquid. If too thin, add a few more pieces of frozen fruit.
  • Taste and Tweak: Give it a taste. Decide if you want an extra squeeze of lime for brightness or a drizzle of honey for more sweetness.
  • Serve and Enjoy: Pour into glasses and enjoy immediately!

Tips

  • Make Ahead: Prepare smoothie packs in advance by portioning out your fruit into freezer bags. When ready to blend, just add the liquid and other ingredients.
  • No Frozen Fruit? You can use fresh mango and pineapple. Add a cup of ice for a similar frosty texture.
  • Customize It: Get creative! Try a different combination of fruits, swap out the yogurt for nut butter, or add a pinch of ginger for some zing.
