To be honest, I’m not much of a smoothie gal. I’ve never been a huge fan of the texture and flavor (not to mention cleaning the blender!) However, this mango pineapple smoothie is an exception. It’s healthy, super easy to make, and tastes like a tropical vacation.
Want to know the best part? My kids love it! Thanks to the natural sweetness of the mango and pineapple, it tastes like dessert, so my kids have no idea they are drinking vegetables.
These tropical green smoothies get tons of nutrients from the lettuce, spinach, flax, and fruit. I added half a scoop of protein powder (<– affiliate link to the one I used) to keep the taste concealed and keep the kids full longer. This recipe makes enough for two adult sized smoothies or four smaller portions.
I love this this green smoothie because it’s
- Naturally sweetened
- Loaded with nutrients
- And delicious!
- Frozen mango
- Frozen pineapple
- Romaine lettuce
- Baby spinach
- Flaxseed meal
- Plant-based protein powder
How to make a tropical green smoothie
- In a high powered blender, add all ingredients in the order listed. Blend on high until smooth.
For a thick smoothie
If you like your smoothie thick, I recommend using all frozen fruit and no ice. Adding ice will water the smoothie down, and the consistency won’t be as thick and creamy.
Make it ahead of time
You can easily meal prep this smoothie for busy mornings. Simply add the fruit, veggies, and flaxseed meal to individual freezer bags and freeze for up to 3 months. When ready to use, empty all the contents into a blender, add protein powder, water, and blend.
Tips for customizing mango pineapple smoothies
- Freeze the smoothies in popsicles molds for a healthy, icy snack
- Use whatever leafy greens you have on hand, like kale, in roughly the same quantities as the spinach and lettuce
- Increase the protein powder to one scoop for even more protein
- Use coconut water or almond milk in place of the water
- Omit the protein powder and flaxseed meal for an inexpensive, easy smoothie that still boasts a lot of nutrition
Nope! You can’t taste the greens in this yummy smoothie. All you will taste is the delicious tropical flavors of mango and pineapple.
Like most recipes, this green smoothie is healthy in moderation. It is made with wholesome, well balanced ingredients and no excess sugar. The mix of fruit and veggies adds a boost of vitamins and nutrients, while the flaxseed meal and protein powder help keep you satisfied long after you’ve finished drinking it!
Due to the natural sugars from the fruit, I think this tropical green smoothie is sweet enough on its own! If you want a bit of extra sweetness, I recommend using agave, honey, maple syrup, or granulated sugar. Soft medjool dates would also work well.
