Refreshing and Detoxifying: Banana, Pineapple, Mango Smoothie
A fruity, very creamy vegan tropical smoothie, or should I say, a mango pineapple banana smoothie, excellent for summer! Vegan smoothies are a great way to satisfy your sweet taste while also providing a variety of nutrients. Blending multiple different fruits together is the secret to crafting a nutritious smoothie.
In addition, each fruit contains unique minerals and vitamins, and blending fruits improves the nutritional content of your vegan smoothies. This mango pineapple banana smoothie is the ideal way to get your essential vitamins because it has three tropical fruits.
- Frozen mango chunks: I suggest getting a bag of frozen mango chunks, organic if possible, so you can use it right away.
- Frozen pineapple: same as above; use frozen pineapple chunks to avoid the effort of cutting and freezing a fresh pineapple.
- Banana: use a fresh, somewhat ripe banana to add sweetness. It delivers the best texture and improves the tropical flavor. I don’t suggest making the smoothie with a frozen banana. A smoothie with too many frozen fruits will turn into a smoothie bowl, thick and only eatable with a spoon.
- Coconut milk: canned coconut milk produces the greatest results and avoids the chemicals found in coconut milk beverages such as gums. Both options will work, however canned coconut milk will give you the creamiest texture and a healthier pineapple mango smoothie. Light canned coconut milk is also fine and has less saturated fat.
- Coconut Water: If you don’t have coconut water on hand, use water. Coconut water is the key ingredient that gives this quick vegan smoothie its tropical flavor.
Banana, Pineapple, Mango Smoothie: How To Make It?
Making smoothies at home is always simple, but getting the proper texture is the most challenging aspect.
Frozen and fresh fruits must be combined to achieve an extremely creamy smooth. This is the only way to avoid a frothy smoothie that’s impossible to drink without a straw.
