The Ingredients for this Tropical Smoothie Recipe.
I love me some pineapples; I didn’t know it originated from the Caribbean, from a place called Guadalupe until I started researching the origin of this fruit. This plant grows mainly in tropical weathers. Pineapples are very juicy and yet nutritious. Some of the health benefits of pineapples may include immune support; it promotes good digestive health. As well as the fact that it has anti-inflammatory value. Pineapple also can reduce the risk of macular degeneration according to research. A cup of pineapple contains about 74 calories, which includes 94% carbohydrate, 4% protein, and 2% fat. When it comes to this smoothie pineapple is a must because it makes it better.
Much About Mango.
Mango is tropical sunshine in fruit; the bright color and taste add magic to this tropical smoothie. Mangoes belong to a family of a plant called Anacardiaceae, and they are scientifically referred to as Mangifera indica. By and large, mangoes remain one of my best fruits ever. Now that I live in the United States, I take advantage of the abundance of mango in the summer. I usually buy loads, wash, chop, and freeze up for occasions like this smoothie.
Fortunately, you can also buy frozen mangoes from your local grocery store. A cup of mango has about 100 calories. But this recipe requires only half a cup or half of a whole mango. It is important to realize the nutritional value of mango is major. In recent times, mangoes have been dubbed as one of the great foods for stabilizing high blood pressure. It can also boost brain health as well as bone health. On the personal level, I love the wonders it works with the digestive system, particularly in relieving constipation aka very kind to our digestive system.
Alongside pineapple and mango, you will need a banana, yogurt, and some orange juice. Banana is very high in potassium. On the other hand, Greek yogurt readily adds the right amount of protein to this smoothie. Finally, the addition of orange juice provides much-needed vitamin C for better immune health.

- 1 cup of frozen pineapple (frozen)
- ½ half of a whole mango (frozen)
- ½ of a whole banana (Frozen; can also use fresh)
- ½ cup of Greek yogurt (coconut flavor); dairy-free works as well.
- ½ cup of orange juice.
- Add all the ingredients into the blender.
- Blend it up until everything is smooth and creamy.
- Pour into a cup or jar. Enjoy this deliciousness using a smoothie straw or spoon (my husband love using a spoon).
Usually, I always love to buy pineapple and mango fresh, then, I would cut into cubes, and freeze for whenever I need them. You can also use store-bought frozen mangos and pineapples. They would work just as beautiful.
I prefer to use frozen banana but you can use fresh if that’s what you have.
Make the smoothie vegan by using a dairy-free milk.
