If you are looking for some tropical vibes on your day off, you have to try this delicious Mango Pineapple Smoothie. This refreshing recipe takes 5 minutes and will make you feel like you reached a tropical island. Both children and adults love this smoothie and all it takes is three ingredients: frozen mango, frozen pineapple and coconut milk! Pineapple provides the smoothie with natural sweetness and has plenty of health benefits as it is rich in antioxidants, nutrients, and enzymes. In addition, it is a wonderful source of Vitamin B6, Vitamin C, thiamin, folate, manganese, copper, potassium, and magnesium.
Of course, there are various other ingredients that you can add to the flavor and nutritional value. For example, adding a teaspoon of chia seeds will increase the fiber content. You can also add other fruits such as bananas or papayas. If you want to increase the smoothie’s protein content, you can add half a cup of Greek yogurt or a tablespoon of protein powder.
The frozen fruits ensure that the smoothie stays thick and creamy. Therefore, I use frozen fruits whenever I can. If you want to use fresh fruits instead of frozen ones, add a few ice cubes to the smoothie to make it refreshing! Just slice the fresh fruits into small pieces and keep them in the refrigerator at least 8 hours before making the smoothie.
