I love smoothies, but I don’t love the insane prices. Especially when you have three plus kids asking for one too. This frugal mom just can’t use all her blow money on smoothies. But she can use food money on getting the ingredients to make these pineapple mango smoothies at home. Score! Plus, you can control what goes in (like less sugar for kids). This summer I went through a homemade iced tea splurge. But my husband was not having it, so he asked me to make him a smoothie. I looked around and saw a mango. A mango I knew would probably spoil if I didn’t use it soon. I then remembered the crushed canned pineapples in the cupboard. Tada, pineapple mango smoothies for the win. Take that McDonald’s!
Most people I know love using sugar in their smoothies, but this recipe honestly tastes amazing without it, but my husband may disagree. Definitely, add sugar to your liking. I love using condensed milk in my smoothies because that’s what mi padre always uses. I can always find a half full can of condensed milk en la casa of my parents.
This pineapple mango smoothie is super simple to make, perfect for the kids to help out in the kitchen.
How To Make A Pineapple Mango Smoothie
Grab a blender, a mango, a can of crushed pineapples, some milk, a little bit of sugar or condensed milk and some orange juice. Simple, You’re going to peel and add as much of the mango as you can to the blender, the pineapple and a cup of orange juice. Blend it up a bit, add in a cup of milk and sugar or condensed milk. Tan Fascil!
I love when I’m over my parents house and my father asks me if I’m interested in a batida. It’s usually made with a Caribbean fruit like papaya, coconut, mango or parcha. Ay mi corazon is craving home right now (so is my belly). Let me know in the comment section how you enjoyed this pineapple mango smoothie recipe. As always, buen provecho!
