Mango Pineapple Smoothie Bowl

If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll know I’m a huge fan of smoothie bowls. It took me a while to get ‘into’ them but once I did, I was hooked. I have always loved smoothies– but this the type of thick smoothie you enjoy from a bowl. Add all your favorite toppings and it is perfect for a lazy weekend morning or afternoon snack.

I plan to share several more of my go-to smoothie bowl recipes but I’m starting with this tropical, mango-pineapple blend 🙂 It’s delicious on a hot day and it’s so easy to throw together. No need for $7 smoothies, here 😉 This costs less than $2 to make and just about 5 minutes of time.

I have used a mix of granola, fruits, nuts, and seeds as a topping for this bowl. Use whatever you have on hand or enjoy it as is–it’s delicious and refreshing either way.

Equipment

  • blender

Ingredients

  • 1 cup frozen mango chunks
  • 1 cup frozen pineapple chunks
  • 1 medium fresh banana or 1 frozen banana
  • 2-4 tbsp non-dairy milk (recommend coconut)

Instructions

Prepare toppings and equipment

  • Place serving bowl in freezer while smoothie is being prepared. Remove a few slices of banana as a topping, if desired. Prep other desired toppings and have them set aside, ready, for when the smoothie bowl is finished.

Make smoothie bowl

  • Add all smoothie items (mango, pineapple, remaining banana, and beginning with 2 tbsp non-dairy milk) to the blender. Ensure some of the liquid is near the blades.
  • Blend, scraping sides as needed, just until smooth and all chunks are broken down. You may need to add the extra liquid, depending on fruit.
  • Remove bowl from freezer and fill with smoothie blend. Top as desired and enjoy!

Notes

Make this into a drinkable, on-the-go smoothie by increasing liquid to desired consistency (suggested 4-6 tbsp). Delicious with orange juice, too!
Tips:
  • Placing a freezer safe bowl in the freezer for a minutes helps keep the smoothie cold + frozen while eating. This is an optional step but one I’ve found helps when working with frozen foods 🙂
  • Suggested toppings include: granola, oats, coconut flakes, banana slices, kiwi fruit slices, fresh pineapple or mango, etc.
  • Sub banana as needed–if you have a frozen banana, it will work great! But if you only have fresh, those work too (and you’ll have some for topping).
