This Mango Pineapple Smoothie Bowl brings the tropics to your breakfast bowl! Customize the toppings on this ultra refreshing & healthy smoothie bowl for your ideal breakfast or snack.
I’ve become a major smoothie bowl addict. I could eat one for breakfast pretty much every single day, and a lot of mornings recently…I have been doing just that. Acai and pitaya bowls are also everywhere in San Diego, so I’ve been picking up my fair share of the bowls at local juice bars too.
I love making them at home, though, where I can make them just as thick and creamy as I like them, with alllll the toppings that I want, using whichever fruits my heart desires. This classic acai bowl is a good place to start the smoothie bowl obsession, but I think the berry pitaya smoothie bowl and peanut butter acai bowl are more frequent favorites of mine – you know I can’t resist a little peanut butter 😉
But for these super warm summer months, with those mornings where I wake up already sweating, I needed something even more refreshing – something more tropical, bright, and fresh. Enter: the mango pineapple smoothie bowl, A.K.A. a vacation to a tropical island in a bowl. It’s so irresistibly bright and fresh, it screams summer.
Bonus: it’s only four ingredients! Banana, mango, pineapple, coconut milk, in a blender, pureed ’til smooth. That’s it. I gave measurements of how I do it, but seriously guys, feel free to wing this and add a bit more pineapple or mango if you prefer one, or add another banana for extra creaminess.
The milk amount is also adjustable. I like my smoothie bowls really thick and creamy, almost ice cream-like, so I go for a small amount of milk. If you want it thinner and more smoothie-like, use more!
Now for the toppings…I go a little crazy here sometimes. On this bowl, I was obsessed with the kiwi slices, fresh mango and coconut, making things extra tropical. I usually top my bowls with granola for crunch, but between the slightly crunchy coconut flakes and chia seeds I sprinkled on top, my texture loving heart was satisfied – though some macadamia nuts would have definitely been welcome.
This recipe only makes one bowl, but it easy doubles so you can make one for you and whoever you love (or a giant one for you!!!). I wouldn’t try to make more than two at a time – you blender might not be able to handle it, especially if you’re making them ultra thick like me.
Time for a smoothie bowl break! Enjoy 🙂
