Cooking Tips

Ready to try this fun and refreshing smoothie recipe? Here are some more tips and tricks to help you nail the recipe.

  • Flax seeds and chia seeds can be great add ins to consider throwing into this vegan tropical fruit smoothie. They’re perfect to add if you’re looking for a thicker smoothie.
  • Another great idea to get a nice thick smoothie is to use frozen fruit instead of starting off with fresh fruit. Frozen banana, in particular, is great!
  • I didn’t add any sugar into the drink, because I wanted to keep it healthy and let the flavor and sweetness of the fresh fruits shine.
  • If you want a thinner smoothie, you can add some coconut water into it while blending it. Coconut water can also be a great alternative if you don’t have coconut milk.
  • Vanilla almond milk can be another great alternative to coconut milk in this vegan smoothie recipe, and can add some creaminess to the smoothie.
  • To make this refreshing and delicious smoothie more healthy, you can also add a scoop of protein powder into the mix.

Variations

I’ve used mango chunks and pineapple as the key ingredients, in addition to the bananas for this amazing vegan tropical smoothie recipe.

  • Based on what you can get your hands on, you can try adding lots of different fruits too.
  • Kiwi, peaches, papaya, guava and strawberries are all great fresh fruit choices. You can also add some pineapple juice and orange juice into your tropical smoothies if want a bit of that extra sweet flavor.
  • To make the smoothie more healthy, you can also add some Spinach into it.

Storage Instructions

  • Transfer to airtight container: Pour the smoothie into an airtight container. Make sure the container has a tight-fitting lid to prevent air from entering, which can cause oxidation and affect the taste and color of the smoothie.
  • Refrigerate promptly: Place the sealed container of smoothie in the refrigerator promptly after making it. Smoothies made with fresh fruit should be refrigerated within two hours of preparation to prevent bacterial growth.
  • Use within 24-48 hours: Consume the mango pineapple smoothie within 24-48 hours for the best taste and quality. While smoothies can be stored for longer periods, they may start to lose their flavor and freshness over time.
  • Shake before serving: Before serving, give the stored smoothie a good shake or stir to recombine any separated ingredients. This helps ensure a consistent texture and flavor throughout.

What To Serve With This Recipe?

  • Fresh Fruit: Serve a platter of fresh fruit alongside the smoothie. Slices of mango, pineapple, kiwi, strawberries, and banana would be perfect complements to enhance the tropical theme.
  • Yogurt Parfait: Create individual yogurt parfaits with layers of Greek yogurt, granola, and diced tropical fruits like mango and pineapple. It adds a creamy and crunchy texture to the meal while maintaining the fruity theme.
  • Pita Chips with Hummus: Offer a savory option with pita chips and hummus. The creamy and tangy hummus pairs nicely with the sweet and refreshing smoothie, creating a well-rounded snack or light meal.
  • Grilled Shrimp Skewers: For a more substantial option, serve grilled shrimp skewers seasoned with tropical spices like chili, lime, and coconut. The juicy shrimp complements the fruity flavors of the smoothie for a satisfying meal.
