Mango and Pineapple Green Smoothie Bowl

Written by contributor Felicia Clark of A Simply Raw Life

A mango and pineapple green smoothie bowl just reminds me of sunshine. And sunshine equals southern California right now.  The weather has been just perfect the past few days. Here’s an Instagram shot of my evening last night. And actually it’s almost getting too hot here… But who’s complaining? All of my friends know that most mornings I drink a green smoothie, and with this warm perfect weather, I wanted to share with you one of my all time favorite green smoothies - a mango and pineapple green smoothie bowl. I make a version of this smoothie probably about 4-5 times a week and I am definitely not tired of it yet!

Turning your favorite smoothie into a smoothie bowl allows you to change up your smoothie routine. And by adding your favorite toppings you can make it into a fabulous breakfast.

 

MANGO AND PINEAPPLE GREEN SMOOTHIE BOWL

Ingredients


1 cup almond milk

2 cups organic spinach

1/2 cup frozen mango chunks

1/2 cup frozen pineapple chunks

1 tablespoon peanut butter

 

Directions

Put into your high speed blender the almond milk and spinach and blend well. Then add in the remaining ingredients and blend well until completely blended smooth.

It’s so creamy delicious. I love using spinach because it blends so well, you will hardly notice you have 2 cups of spinach in your smoothie.

Top it off with your favorite toppings such as hemp seeds, raw cacao nibs, granola or your favorite berries.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

    It looks delicious…great recipies.

    about peanut butter, mine is homemade : tost raw peanuts, put on robott in high speed for about 3 min. Fristly it will be powder, but if you keep the speed it will turn in to a butter… keep on the fridge and enjoy.

    First green smoothie recipe I have used from this site. And I love it. I didn’t add peanut butter because at the last minute I realized I didn’t have any! But the smoothie was creamy and tasty. Can’t wait to try other recipes.

    Take the almond milk and peanut butter out of it and you’ll have yourself a healthy smoothie that easily digestible for everyone. Eating fats with fruit causes fermentation in the gut and most likely a bad stomach ache for many.

      Thanks for sharing your insight! We have done lots of research on what mixing fruits and fats can do to your body, and realize that eating high levels of fats with fruits can slow down digestion and cause some stomachaches. We really encourage people to listen to their bodies and also consult with a health practitioner if they are experiencing discomfort. Every body responds so differently to food combinations. What may wreck havoc in one person’s digestive system, may be fine for someone else. :-)

    This looks so good! I just bought pineapple yesterday, and am looking for some new combinations to try this week so will have to try this. Maybe with almond butter, as peanut butter doesn’t love me very much! Mango and pineapple together… Yum!!!
    I love that your green smoothie is in a bowl – looks gorgeous!!

      Go for it, Brigid!

        PS. My favourite green smoothie recipe: 1Pear, 1 Mango Cheek, 1/2 a banana, 1/4 cup raspberries, 2 cups baby spinach, small piece of lemon, a little parsley, a teaspoon of Spirulina, 3/4 cup of water. Tastes like a Fruit Tingle!!

    Hello! Another factor I like to consider in peanut butter or any nut butter is getting one that says unblanched and natural, which means there are only 1-2 ingredients and is less processed. :) Enjoy! xFelicia

    This looks very yummy! I actually did something similar by adding avocado instead of banana to the Tropicolada recipe and it came out very smooth and kind of thick with a yogurt like consistency so I just topped it with strawberries and granola and ate with a spoon. Delish!
    Thx for sharing! I can’t wait to try this one. :)

    Hi Kristie! We get our almond butter from Trader Joes, but any brand of peanut butter works fine as long as it is 100% peanuts with no added ingredients. We like organic better, but if you can’t find organic then go with what is available :-) Hope this helps!
    PS. You may like the taste of a certain brand better than another, so let that be a factor, too!

    Looks AWESOME – all of my favorite things in one bowl. Can you recommend a brand of peanut butter?
