Mahalo to Foodland Hawai’i for sponsoring this post. As always thoughts and opinions are my own.

Mango and pineapple are perfect together in this easy smoothie recipe! Smoothies are great for breakfast, lunch, or a snack, and when they’re this good and this easy to make, you’ll be back again and again for more! And, when you make this tropical smoothie recipe with Maika’i coconut water, you get extra nutrition from the electrolyte-loaded coconut water.

I also love that this easy smoothie recipe is sweetened with honey, and you can adjust that too to make your smoothie as sweet as you like.

What Is Coconut Water

Coconut water is the water from inside a coconut. It is a pure, unprocessed ingredient though it is filtered to remove any coconut bits. Not to be confused with coconut milk, which is a combination of the water and shredded coconut (to give it a creamy color and texture), the water is low in sugar and in calories. Coconut water has the added bonus of being super-hydrating (thank you, electrolytes!) and is a great source of potassium. It is also delicious in this pineapple mango smoothie!

What Kind Of Blender Do You Need To Make Smoothies

Because you’re working with frozen fruit, you’ll need a blender with a good motor. Most upright blenders should be able to handle this mango pineapple smoothie, especially if you let the frozen fruit sit on the counter for 5 minutes to soften up slightly before adding it to the blender.

What You Need To Make Mango Pineapple Smoothies

(Full recipe instructions and ingredient amounts are in the recipe card at the bottom of this post)

You only need a handful of ingredients to make these delicious tropical smoothies:

  • Frozen mango – I love Haden mango, but any store bought variety will work.
  • Frozen pineapple chunks – If you can’t find frozen pineapples, you can freeze canned or fresh pineapple.
  • Greek yogurt – I like to use vanilla yogurt, but plain works just as well. Almond milk or orange juice can be used if you’re looking for a dairy-free smoothie.
  • Maika’i Coconut Water – This can be found in the drink aisle at your local Foodland. I like pulp free, but you can use the one with pulp if you’d like.
  • Honey – Add a little sweetness. You can use agave or another sweetener of your choice. You can also opt to leave this out.

What Kind of Greek Yogurt Goes Into Smoothies?

You can have some fun mixing and matching flavors in this smoothie. I usually like to use vanilla yogurt in this smoothie, but you could use plain, unsweetened Greek yogurt or any fruit-flavored yogurt that you want.

If you’re controlling the sugar, plain yogurt is the way to go.

How To Make This Tropical Smoothie Recipe

This recipe is so easy: everything goes into the blender! And you can keep it thick enough that you need a spoon to eat it or thin it with a bit more Maikai’i Coconut Water to make it sippable. I’ll give you tips on how to do that below.

  1. Set the fruit out on the counter for 5 minutes to thaw slightly and make blending easier.
  2. Add everything into the blender and turn it on high to blend all the ingredients.
  3. Add more Maika’i Coconut Water if you like it thinner, or keep it nice and thick.

Variations

This is an easy tropical smoothie recipe to switch up. Here are my favorite suggestions:

  • Add other frozen fruit to the blender to switch things up. Frozen papaya, liliko’i or passion fruit, strawberries, bananas, and dragon fruit are all good options.
  • Use pineapple, strawberry, or blueberry flavored yogurt instead of plain yogurt.
  • Make the smoothie and freeze it in your popsicle mold for creamy and frozen summertime treats.
  • Add a scoop of protein powder to make this a protein smoothie.

Storage

Keep any leftover smoothie in an airtight container in the fridge for 2-3 days. It will get thinner as the fruit melts, but it’ll still be delicious. Or, freeze it and enjoy it as a frozen treat.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is this mango pineapple smoothie healthy?

Yes, it sure is! It’s loaded with nutrition thanks to fruit and coconut water, and it is low in fat and sugar.

Can you make a smoothie with frozen fruit?

Yes, in fact, it is the frozen fruit that helps make this tropical smoothie so thick and rich. If you use fresh fruit, you’ll need to add ice cubes to the blender to help thicken the smoothie.

Is this mango smoothie high-protein?

Not as the recipe is written, but if you add a scoop of your favorite protein powder to the blender then you can get a nice protein bump from the smoothie.
