Summer is so close, I can taste it! I’m gearing up for it with some refreshing, healthy green smoothie recipes to have in my back pocket for the hottest of days, when just the thought of turning on the oven or stovetop makes me sweat.
Or just because I want a delicious, nutritious treat without a lot of effort.
This Healthy Mango Pineapple Green Smoothie tastes like a virgin Pina Colada, so you can at least pretend you’re in a tropical location, even if you’re stuck at home on a cloudy day.
Here’s what you’ll need:
Healthy Mango Pineapple Smoothie Ingredients
Mango – one of the best fruits of the season! Mangos are great for smoothies, as they are naturally sweet and help make a super creamy smoothie. Feel free to use fresh or frozen – whichever you have on hand
Pineapple – for that yummy, tart flavor with no comparison. I used frozen, but you could also use fresh or even canned (without any added sugar)
Spinach – for a boost of vitamin C, iron, and other nutrients, without overpowering the flavor of this smoothie
Avocado – a healthy fat that adds creaminess, helps keep you full and balances blood sugar
Vanilla powder – for a little extra treat without any extra sugar. Feel free to sub alcohol-free vanilla extract, if you prefer.
Collagen peptides – a great addition for all the benefits of collagen, plus a serving of protein, to help give this smoothie some staying power
Coconut milk – because there is no other, more satisfying way to add that luscious, creamy texture to a tropical smoothie
To make this Healthy Mango Pineapple Green Smoothie, simply add all the ingredients to a high-speed blender and blend until smooth. If your blender needs more liquid, just slowly add a little at a time until it blends smoothly. Enjoy immediately.
Mango Pineapple Smoothie Variations
Here are a few swaps you could use to mix up this tropical smoothie a bit:
- If you prefer a sweeter smoothie, try adding a date (AIP, Paleo and Whole30) or a little maple syrup (AIP & Paleo).
- For an extra creamy smoothie, use full-fat coconut milk for all the liquid, rather than half.
- Add half of a banana for even more creaminess.
- Feel free to use fresh or frozen fruit – whichever you prefer. If you use fresh fruit, you may want to add a little ice to your smoothie to give it that signature thick smoothie consistency.
- Add a scoop of coconut yogurt for a probiotic boost.
- Swap the coconut milk for another non-dairy milk, like almond milk (Paleo & Whole 30), tigernut milk (Paleo, AIP & Whole30) or one of your other favorites.
Chew your smoothies
To help balance your blood sugar and to stay fuller longer, it’s best to enjoy your smoothie alongside a meal. You can also try slowing down and “chewing” your smoothie. I know it sounds silly, but thoroughly chewing your food (including smoothies) is one of the best ways to improve your digestion. Chewing signals the rest of your digestive tract to prepare for the incoming food and make the appropriate digestive juices and enzymes. And you need your digestion to be in tip-top shape to take full advantage of the nutrients in this smoothie!
What blender is best for smoothies?
There are many types of blenders you can use for smoothies. High-speed blenders tend to work the best. My two favorites are my Vitamix and my NutriBullet Pro. Both do a great job blending smoothies into a very smooth, creamy consistency.
Despite all the great things I’ve heard about Ninja blenders, I have never had success with them. No matter how long I blend, it never turns out smooth and creamy. But if that’s what you have, give it a try and see if it works for you.
