Smoothies are perfect for breakfast, especially in the spring and summer. I love drinking smoothies in the morning because of the boost of nutrients that I get from my protein powders. I try so hard to try to drink a smoothie that’s different from my Raspberry Pineapple Smoothie. Pineapples are one of my favorite fruits, so I decided to make a Mango Pineapple Smoothie.
Mango Pineapple Smoothies are my new obsession. I wasn’t a fan of mango for a very long time. I’ve had some really bad bitter mangoes in my life. It wasn’t until I started drinking Mango Kombucha that I changed my mind on mango. Mango Kombucha is amazing; I also drink this instead of smoothies some mornings. Kombucha is loaded with health benefits that are necessary for your health. Mango Kombucha tastes similarly to soda. So, if you struggle with drinking soda, start drinking Kombucha. I haven’t had any soda in a very long time because I’ve made the switch to Kombucha and carbonated water.
Many of you have asked me what I pair with my smoothies in the morning. In the mornings, I normally will make a smoothie and serve it on the side with some avocado toast. Avocado Toast is my go-to breakfast in the mornings because it doesn’t take too long to make. In the mornings, I make a smoothie (sometimes I don’t have to because I have left overs) and then I pop my toast in the toaster. Spread some avocado on that toast and you have a breakfast ready to go in less than 30 minutes.
How to make a mango pineapple smoothie:
Begin by choosing your base for your smoothie. For this mango pineapple smoothie, I used water. Due to the fact that I’m not a fan of milk base smoothies, I always use water. To keep your mango pineapple smoothie dairy free and use milk, opt for almond, cashew, or macadamia milk. I don’t like my smoothies to be too thick. If you don’t want to use regular water, feel free to use some coconut water instead.
Next, choose your fruit. For this mango pineapple smoothie, I chose to blend it with a banana since it helps the fruit blend better. As far as fruit, I tend to prefer to blend fruits that taste good together. I won’t blend a fruit like apples with bananas. I don’t really like apples in my smoothies.
After choosing your fruit, it’s time to choose your vegetables! I decided to use frozen cauliflower for this mango pineapple smoothie because I enjoy the way cauliflower tastes in smoothies. I wanted to keep this smoothie raw, so I did not cook the cauliflower beforehand. The vegetables you choose for your smoothie is where you will get the most health benefits. To make it extra healthy, always add some leafy greens. I wasn’t in the mood for them today.
Lastly, load up your mango pineapple smoothie with some protein powders and seeds. I choose to use baobab and goji berry because I enjoy the tartness that I get from using both. If you’re going to be using protein powders, do research to find the best ones!
