The smoothie is so creamy and has a velvety texture, even without yogurt as the base.

It reminds me of a ginger snap cookie, just in liquid form, and of course, it tastes as delicious!

Ginger Mango Smoothie

I love to whip up this mango smoothie with ginger for quick fall breakfasts on the go.

I don’t even mind that it’s not a warm breakfast when I just need to eat or drink something substantial in a hurry.

My second favorite time to have this ginger drink is poolside during long, lazy summer days. The mango gives off tropical vibes, while the ginger adds a great, refreshing kick.

Ingredient Notes and Substitutions

Pineapple: Fresh pineapple is best for its natural sweetness and flavor, but you can use frozen pineapple chunks instead.

Mango: Fresh mango is ideal, but you can swap it out with frozen mango chunks if fresh is not in season.

Dragon fruit (optional): Dragon fruit adds vibrant color and a subtle flavor. Omit it or replace it with berries like strawberries or raspberries if they’re not readily available.

Ginger: Freshly grated ginger provides the best flavor. Ground ginger works too, but use it sparingly as it’s more concentrated.

Pressed apple juice: Use unsweetened pressed apple juice for a natural sweetness. Store-bought varieties are a good option too.

Cinnamon: Ground cinnamon adds a spicy warmth. Try using a cinnamon stick for a milder flavor and remove it before blending.

Recipe Tips and Tricks

Use ripe fruits: Choose ripe and sweet pineapples and mangoes for the best natural sweetness, texture, and flavor.

Cinnamon control: Add a little at a time until you’ve reached your taste preference. You can always add more after blending if needed.

Natural sweeteners: For a sweeter smoothie, add honey, agave nectar, or a sweetener of your choice to taste.

Blend in stages: Start blending on low speed and gradually increase to high for a smoother texture.

Ice for chilling: Add ice cubes if you want a colder and thicker-textured smoothie.
