Step 1. Prepare the ingredients:
If you’re using fresh ingredients, peel and cut into chunks. Preferably use at least one of the fruit frozen for a thicker creamier consistency. And since the pineapple is more fibrous than mango, I’ll be using frozen pineapple.
So get it ready by peeling, coring and dicing the pineapple before bagging it up into the freezer. Or buy bagged frozen pineapple.
Step 2. Combine all the smoothie ingredients and blend until smooth:
Throw all ingredients in the blender and blend until everything looks dissolved and smooth. If you’re making a smaller portion then use a smaller blender for smoothies and shakes rather than a regular large one.
Step 3. Serve the smoothie:
Pour the pineapple mango smoothie into glasses. Garnish, with fresh fruit, seeds or mint leaves if you like.
Tips for A Perfect Smoothie
The liquid – as the liquid base you can use any plant based milk, water or coconut water. If you want it creamier texture, use a plant based yogurt.
If you're using seeds - choose 1 or a combination of two types.
When using all frozen fruits, you can expect a thicker smoothie and may need to add a tad extra liquids to help it move along in the blender.
If your fruits are not really ripe, use a banana to sweeten up the smoothie.
If using fresh mint in the smoothie - add just a few leaves so the taste won't overpower the aroma of pineapple and mango. It should bring in it a cool clean fresh taste.
