Fresh Pineapple Mango Mint Smoothie to enjoy during summer. It only requires 4-ingredients and a blender. Enjoy!
Tomorrow is the official start of summer and to celebrate the most fun season of the year I’m sharing with you my favourite tropical Pineapple Mango Mint Smoothie today. If you often visit Primavera Kitchen you may know that I’m originally from Brazil and I grew up eating tropical fruits such as mango, orange, watermelon and so on.
I remember my mom used to make lots of smoothies for my sister and me, using the fruits from the local farms. Hum… So good!
I think that’s why I LOVE smoothies of any kind! One of my favourite is the green smoothies with peach, mango, or pineapple. As you cant see, I love smoothies full of tropical fruits just like this Mango Pineapple Mint Smoothie. For this recipe I used frozen mango and the rest of the fruits were fresh.
I also added coconut water that gives a delicious natural sweetness. If you like creamy smoothies you will add only ½ cup of coconut water for 1 cup of frozen mango, 1 ½ cups of fresh pineapple and a fresh medium banana. This is definitely the perfect ratio for a thick and creamy smoothie. However, if all frozen fruits are frozen you’ll probably need more coconut water.
The key ingredient in here is the mint leaf. I have to say that mint really brings this summer Mango Pineapple Mint Smoothie to a whole different level. You can add more or less depending on how much of mint flavor you want. I think 2-4 leaves is the perfect amount. I suggest you add only 2, beat with all the rest of the ingredients, taste and then you see if you need to add more. I added 4 just because I love the fresh and cooling taste it leaves in my month. Perfect!
The Best Blender for Smoothie:
My two favorite blenders to make my smoothies are:
1. NutriBullet, just because it allows you to blend in the cup you’ll be drinking from. It’s so practical and makes clean up a breeze.
2. I also love is my Vitamix and it’s the the one item in my kitchen that gets used EVERY single day. It’s one of my favourite tools in the kitchen. I make smoothies, my low-carb blueberry muffins, sauces, spreads and digs. I really recommend it.
This is definitely the best smoothie to start your day. You’ll feel satisfied without feeling heavy and give you more energy to go through a long afternoon of work.
