Frequently asked questions
Why does my smoothie taste bitter?
Sometimes when you mix milk and fresh pineapple, the combination curdles the milk. This is due to the casein in the milk mixing with the bromelain in the pineapple.
Heat your pineapples before using them but make sure they are cool. You could also use canned pineapple instead.
Is this a healthy drink?
This is a very healthy fruit smoothie recipe with all-natural ingredients. Making it at home means you can adjust the ingredients to your liking.
For example, you can use sugar-free or light milk and yogurt for less sugar. Mangoes and pineapples are both packed with vitamins and nutrients.
For example, one serving of mango has 76% of your daily value of vitamin C and 25% of vitamin A.
What other fruits go well with mangoes?
Because mangoes are tropical fruits, they go very well with other tropical fruits. Try adding chopped papayas, kiwi, or bananas to your fresh mango pineapple smoothie recipe.
You may also enjoy some passion fruit, dates, star fruit, guavas, or pomegranates.
How to store leftovers:
- Store: If you have any leftovers, you can store them in an airtight container like a mason jar in your fridge for three days.
- Freeze: You can also freeze for about three months. Try freezing these in a mold to make popsicle smoothies.
- Thaw: Be sure to thaw overnight in the fridge before serving.
- Reheat: Serve in a chilled glass for the best flavor.
- Using frozen fruits instead of fresh ones is fine too. No need to thaw as they will help thicken your smoothie. This is helpful in the winter because you can find frozen mangos at the store any time of year.
- If your drink is too thick, try adding a bit of liquid such as more coconut water or milk.
- Add a scoop of your favorite protein powder for an extra boost.
- Magic bullet blenders work great for this creamy smoothie, but any kind of blender will work.
- Add a little bit of chia or flax seeds for more fiber and vitamins.
