A complete list of ingredients with amounts and full instructions is located in the printable recipe card below. This section covers ingredient and substitution considerations.
- Mango & Pineapple: Fresh or frozen works but it’s best if at least one of them is frozen.
- Cucumber: Fresh or frozen cucumber works. Can be substituted with zucchini, cauliflower or celery.
- Spinach: Fresh or frozen spinach works. Can be substituted with fresh or frozen kale.
- Protein Powder: Use vanilla plant-based protein powder to add protein and sweeten the smoothie. Can be substituted with 1 small frozen banana.
- Almond Milk: Can be submitted water, coconut water or any plant-based milk such as oat milk, cashew milk or soy milk. Half orange juice, apple juice or cranberry juice and half water is also good!
The recipe as written is meant to serve one but it makes a large 1 L serving, so it can easily serve 2 as a smaller portion or snack.
This smoothie is easy to customize with different add-ins and substitutions.

Powders: Try 1-2 tsp spirulina, chlorella, moringa or matcha for a boost of extra nutrients and antioxidants. Spirulina and chlorella have a fairly strong flavour, so start with 1/2 tsp and taste first. Moringa is more mild, I’d suggest 1 tsp. Matcha contains caffeine so is best enjoyed in the morning – use 1-2 tsp matcha powder at your discretion.
Nut Butters: I love this smoothie with peanut butter added. Try 1-2 tbsp almond butter or peanut butter for a yummy, creamy twist. This is also helpful if you need extra calories.
Seeds: Try up to 3 tbsp hemp seeds for extra healthy fats and protein. You can also do 1-2 tbsp chia seeds or ground flax. If you do not have a high-speed blender you might want to skip these ingredients otherwise your smoothie may be grainy.
Yogurt: To add creaminess and probiotics, add up to 1/3 cup of your favourite plain or vanilla non-dairy yogurt.
Smoothie Bowl: Reduce the liquid to 1/2 cup to make a mango pineapple smoothie bowl. Be sure to add the liquid first then the rest of the ingredients. Start blending on low until it “catches” then slowly increase speed. You may need to stop a few times to scrape the sides or use a tamper to get it to blend.
You definitely can but I find canned coconut milk a bit rich for smoothies. It’s up to you!
If you’d like to use canned coconut milk, I’d suggest replacing a portion of a lighter milk or water with:
• up to 1/2 cup light coconut milk
• up to 1/4 cup full-fat coconut milk
For example, use 1 cup almond milk or water and 1/2 cup light coconut milk.
To make this smoothie without protein powder, reduce the liquid by 1/4 cup and consider adding up to a whole frozen banana for additional sweetness and thickness.
Sure! Smoothies are best fresh but you can store them in the fridge for up to 2 days. It won’t be quite as thick when you go to drink it but it will still taste delicious.
You can also freeze leftover smoothie in an ice cube tray then transfer to a freezer bag or container. The frozen smoothie cubes can be re-blended with a liquid of choice or added to another smoothie.
