Smoothie Presentation 101
Maybe I’m biased because Instagram is part of the job when it comes to running a food blog, but there is definitely something very satisfying about a smoothie not only tasting delicious but looking GORGEOUS too!
My secret; a glass smoothie cup and more importantly a glass smoothie straw is what makes my mango pineapple smoothie look so pretty.
I have never been a huge fan of the stainless steel straw trend. I understand they are a much better alternative to plastic straws but I just don’t really vibe with the look of them. THESE STRAWS are the answer to that dilemma. The pack is reasonable priced and provides you with both options, bent glass straws and straight glass straws. A glass straw will definitely elevate your smoothie game plus they are environmentally friendly.
Mango Pineapple Smoothie Ingredients
- Frozen mango – buy from the store or prepare your own the day before by chopping up fruit and storing in reusable zip lock bags in the freezer.
- Frozen pineapple – as above.
- Ice – I use about three large rectangle ice cubes for this recipe.
- Milk of your choice – almond or coconut milk are my go-to milks at the moment but you can use literally anything in this recipe.
- Vanilla protein powder – Make sure you use a delicious tasting protein powder in this recipe. It does not need to be vegan but if you would like this recipe to be dairy free and vegan friendly, I recommend this protein powder or this one. If you are fine with whey protein then I recommend this protein or this one.
- Maple Syrup or sweetener of your choice – you can use honey, date syrup, stevia, monk fruit or any kind of sweetener you like in this recipe. You can also totally omit the sweetener as the fruit may provide enough sweetness.
- Macadamia Nuts – you can use any type of nut in this mango pineapple smoothie. I just LOVE macadamias, they are my favourite nut forever and always.

Does my fruit need to be frozen?
When it comes to making and consuming a smoothie I have two very strict requirements, it must be thick and cold, like icey cold! There is no alternative for me and the best way to achieve a thick and cold smoothie is by using frozen fruit.
If you are not as fussy as me and don’t mind if your smoothie is on the ‘just chilled’ side of things, then by all means, try making this mango pineapple smoothie with fresh fruit and see how you like it + leave a comment below and let me know your thoughts.
