This pineapple mango smoothie calls for five healthy and simple ingredients. You’ll need a banana, a fresh or frozen mango, pineapple, milk of your choice, and Greek yogurt. Here is a list of all the ingredients, so you are prepared:

Tips for making thick & creamy smoothies
Use frozen fruit. Use frozen mango pieces, mango chunks, and a chopped-up frozen banana to help thicken your smoothie naturally without adding a ton of ice. This trick makes super thick and creamy smoothies rather than icy ones.
Make your own frozen fruit. You can buy pre-frozen mango and pineapple chunks in the freezer sections of the grocery store, or you can freeze your own by cutting up a fresh piece of fruit and storing it in freezer-safe bags for up to 3 months.
Start with the minimum amount of milk. You can always add more milk if you want a thinner smoothie. To be safe, start with a 1/2 cup and add from there.
Add a few cubes of ice. I never add more than 8 ice cubes to my smoothies because it can make them “icy” and not creamy. But adding a few helps make them thicker, especially if you decide to use fresh fruit instead of frozen fruit.
How to make this smoothie even higher in protein:
The best thing about this mango pineapple smoothie is that you can customize it and add extra protein. The smoothie naturally has 16 grams already, but feel free to add a scoop of vanilla or plain protein powder, a scoop of collagen, or 1 – 2 tbsp hemp hearts. This will add another 10 – 15 grams of protein.
How to meal prep smoothies:
I love meal-prepping smoothies! Here are the two easiest ways to do it:
- Prepare the fruit: add the pineapple chunks, mango pieces, and banana to an individual-sized freezer-safe bag. You can buy fresh fruit and cut it up, or you can buy frozen. This method makes it super easy to throw everything into a blender when you are ready to enjoy the smoothie.
- Freeze the smoothie: make your smoothie, then freeze it in ice trays and in freezer-safe bags as “cubes.” When you are ready to enjoy, simply add to a glass and let thaw in the fridge for a few hours or overnight. You can also blend the smoothie ice cubes for a quick thaw.

Yes! Feel free to add a handful of blueberries, strawberries, blackberries, or raspberries.
How to store and freeze smoothies for meal prep:
