This creamy vegan Mango Pineapple Smoothie recipe is made with banana (or yogurt) and optional ginger! It's naturally sweetened, filled with tropical flavors, and delightfully refreshing. (Vegan, gluten-free, oil-free.)
This creamy Mango Pineapple Smoothie is one of my favorite smoothie recipes!
It's delightfully refreshing, rich in vitamin C, and only requires 5 simple ingredients for quick assembly. The smell and flavor is absolute bliss!
We combine dairy-free milk and orange juice for the base. Then add nutrient-rich mango, pineapple, and banana. The result reminds me of a tropical-style Orange Julius! (So good.)
Enjoy it as a refreshing snack, breakfast, summer treat, or pick-me-up anytime during the day.
Ingredients for Mango Pineapple Smoothie
For this recipe you'll blend in a high-speed blender:
- Mango: This smoothie can be made with fresh fruit, frozen fruit, or a combination of whatever you have on hand. Most often I use frozen mango chunks for convenience, but fresh mango works great too.
- Pineapple: You can either use frozen pineapple chunks, fresh pineapple, or canned.
- Ripe banana: The more brown spots on your banana peel the sweeter it will be. You can use fresh, but frozen banana will result in a creamier texture.
- Plant milk: Choose your favorite dairy-free milk. Soy milk, almond milk, cashew milk, oat milk, etc. Coconut milk (or even coconut water) is also great for an added tropical taste.
- Orange juice: I use the freshly squeezed juice from about 3 oranges. But you can substitute with store-bought orange juice if needed.
- Fresh ginger: This is completely optional, so you can leave it out if preferred. I like to add 1 to 2 teaspoons of freshly grated ginger to mine, but my daughter prefers hers without ginger.
Banana-free? Substitute a dollop of dairy-free yogurt or vegan Greek yogurt instead!
Fruit: Change it up as you see fit. Try peaches, kiwi, papaya, or strawberries. Or pour in other juices like pineapple juice, carrot juice, or lime juice.
Protein: Add a scoop of plain or vanilla protein powder if you wish. Or you can add hemp seeds, chia seeds, etc.
Greens: Add a boost of nutrients and fresh greens to this recipe like spinach or baby kale. (It will alter the color however.)
Other additions: Sprinkle in a dash of ground turmeric, orange zest, amla powder, etc. For more sweetness add agave nectar, vegan honey, pitted & softened dates, pure maple syrup, or your own favorite sweetener to taste.
Smoothie bowl! Reduce the liquid (or increase the fruit) and turn this into a thick smoothie bowl instead. Then top it with your favorite additions like fresh banana, coconut flakes, goji berries, etc.
Fresh fruit vs. frozen fruit: For convenience and cost, I usually use frozen mango and pineapple. However fresh works great as well. Be aware that using frozen fruit results in a colder, thicker smoothie. But it's up to your preference or whatever you have on hand.
Liquid base: The key to this smoothie is using a liquid base of both orange juice & milk. It creates a creamy consistency with sweet, wonderful flavor!
Store leftovers in an airtight container or sealed glass mason jar in the fridge. I find it's best enjoyed within a day.
