About the recipe
This simple mango smoothie is made with few ingredients, and we need two delicious fruits to blend the smoothie.
Use two fruits and two liquids to get a perfect consistency smoothie that can make a complete meal without additional ingredients and let you stay fit and healthy.
The fruits used to make the smoothies are mango and pineapple, which make a yummy combination if combined with yogurt or milk.
I like to use healthy liquids such as greek yogurt and almond milk to make healthy smoothie recipes and not make high-calorie smoothies.
I prefer to use similar liquids as they give a good taste, perfectly replace dairy-based milk, and are healthy.
Drink it any time or have it in the morning for breakfast or during snacking by replacing unhealthy foods.
The smoothie also makes a good meal replacement smoothie and consume in place of meals for healthy weight management.
Check out the detailed recipe below.
Mango: Since this smoothie is about frozen mangoes, use mangoes in frozen form or use them fresh, but fresh mangoes are available only during the mango season, so have frozen mangoes handy.
Pineapple: Use either frozen pineapple chunks or fresh pineapple chunks as, once again, a fresh pineapple may not last long and may not be available while making fruit smoothies.
Almond milk: Use non-dairy-based milk as they are healthy with many benefits and make an excellent substitute for whole milk or other dairy-based milk.
Greek yogurt: Using greek yogurt is a healthy option as it contains low or no fat and is cholesterol free.
Dates: Add dates to get a sweet taste to the smoothie and make it fiber-rich and iron-rich.
Mango and pineapple benefits
Although mangoes are high in calories, eating them in moderation and considering their calories while eating is a great way to have them.
One single mango of medium size weighing about 150 grams has approximately 150 calories; if eaten once in a while, a whole mango works well.
If eating regularly, watch out as it has high calories and can lead to weight gain.
Mangoes are good in iron and many other vitamins and are perfect for maintaining good eyesight.
Mangoes work well for a healthy diet to lose weight if eaten in moderation.
Pineapple is a great fruit and a fat burner that can help you lose tummy fat and reduce body fat as it contains fat-burning properties if included in diets.
The pineapple fruit is low in calories but a good source of fiber that aids better digestion and works well in burning abdominal fat.
It also has other essential properties; it is a metabolism booster and immune booster fruit; therefore, having pineapple while following a healthy diet can make a lot of difference in reducing weight.
Mangoes and pineapple aid in better digestion and a good sources of fiber; these two fruits are enough to complete a meal and give you a feeling of satiety if added to smoothies.
Other smoothie advantages
The fiber helps with slow digestion and prevents eating further, thus preventing from gaining high calories.
The calories this frozen mango smoothie provides are enough for a healthy meal replacement and give sufficient energy to carry on the activities until the next meal.
Almond and greek yogurt are beneficial and work well in weight loss diets. They both contain a high amount of protein, and a healthy meal needs protein.
Greek yogurt and almond milk are both low in fats and cholesterol, which is why they are both added while making healthy smoothies.
Dates are a high source of iron and contain a good amount of fiber which makes a healthy ingredient to add to smoothies and also has natural sugars.
Variations and Substitutions
Here, mango is used with pineapple, but mangoes can be combined with many other fruits, such as berries, whether a strawberry, blueberry, or raspberry.
Mangoes also make a perfect combination with avocado or spinach if you like to add a veggie to the fruit.
Using only one liquid, such as almond milk or yogurt, is another healthy option for making the smoothie.
Different sweeteners such as honey or maple syrup too can be used to give a sweet flavor but here, adding dates can be an ideal choice to give the smoothie required nutrition as dates are rich in fiber.
Combine any fruit with frozen mangoes, add a liquid of your choice, and substitute pineapple with other fruits.
Also, use the liquid of your choice and substitute the liquid of your liking but going with healthy low, calorie liquids is a good way of making a healthy smoothie.
How can I freeze mangoes?
Having fresh mangoes handy can be a difficult task, as fresh mangoes may only be available in some seasons.
Mangoes are seasonal and mainly summer fruit; therefore, having a stock of mangoes off-season by storing them well for later use is a wise decision.
Every grocery store sells frozen mangoes all seasons and having a pack can help add them to various recipes easily.
If you like to freeze them at home, peel the mangoes, cut the flesh into cube sizes or chunks, place them on a baking tray lined with parchment paper and freeze for a few hours.
When the mangoes are frozen well, take the chunks out, transfer them to a ziplock bag, seal them airtight and freeze them again.
This method prevents the mangoes from sticking to each other and makes it easy to remove in a frozen state.
Freeze the mango bag in the freezer and use it for months and add it to any dish of your choice or make any dish you like.

What fruit blends well with the mango?
Using any fruit, mainly pineapple or other fruits such as bananas, oranges, peaches, or mixed berries, can make a good combination with mangoes.
Among liquids, any healthy milk such as coconut milk or if non-dairy milk is not available; it is better to go with low-fat milk to make it healthy.
