How about one with tropical fruits giving it that beach feeling?
This mango pineapple smoothie is it! Start off with frozen mangoes, and fresh pineapple then drizzle in some honey to sweeten it up a tad. Really is that simple.
It's a light, tropical smoothie, perfect for a hot day. Also makes a great quick breakfast.
Mango and pineapple so go well together. The sweetness of the mangos paired with a tartness of the pineapple is a great combo. If you love to pair these two fruits give my mango pineapple salsa a try.
The recipe calls for simple ingredients. This version isn't a really thick smoothie. It's much lighter and really lets that fresh fruit shine.
Mangoes: The star of this smoothie are those sweet mango chunks. Freezing diced mangoes ahead of time is what gives this smoothie its creaminess.
If you do not have frozen mango, fresh mangos can absolutely be used. Just make sure to add a cup of ice cubes.
Pineapple: This recipe calls for fresh pineapple chunks, but frozen or canned may also be used.
Honey: Honey is added to this smoothie because the tartness of the pineapple can really become overpowering. The honey helps mellow it out a bit. Pure maple syrup can also be used in its place.
Coconut Milk: Since this is a tropical smoothie, coconut milk helps enhance that. But please feel free to use your go-to smoothie milk. Almond milk would be another great option.

Freezing Fresh Mangoes
When mangoes are at their peak season and can be found in bulk at lower prices, it's a great time to stock up and freeze for later.
They are super easy to freeze and store for later months. Just follow my easy how-to guide to properly freeze fresh mango chunks.

This smoothie can also make a great smoothie bowl. Use toppings such as coconut flakes, chia seeds and granola.
Creamier Smoothie: If you want a thicker smoothie, consider adding some greek yogurt or a frozen banana.
Protein Smoothie: A scoop of protein powder can easily be added to this smoothie. Consider a vanilla-flavored protein.
Cocktail: Easily turn this smoothie into a fun cocktail with some flavored rum.
Milk: Feel free to use almond or oat milk as well in the smoothie.
Honey: Swap out the honey for a pure maple syrup.
Blender: My favorite high-powered blender for smoothies is a BlendTec. They really can blend anything and every smoothie comes out perfect with zero lumps.
Food processor: If you do not have a blender, a food processor also works great.
