I invented this one day when I had leftover mango and pineapple juice. A spoonful of cream of coconut added the sweetness and special flavor with a tropical flare. You may use frozen pineapple juice ice cubes instead for more of a slush drink (about 8 pineapple ice cubes). Enjoy!

I wanted to duplicate the Mango Pineapple Smoothie at McDonalds so I was ecstatic when I found this recipe! I just made it and even though I completely forgot to add the cream of coconut this was just as refreshing and delicious as McDonalds and a lot cheaper. I made it with 0% fat vanilla yogurt which just brought the calorie count way down. Thanks for posting!:D Read More

When I first made this I really liked it when I tasted it. Then I realized I forgot the mango. I ended up adding it and I thought it made kind of a tart taste it didn't have without it. Also whenever I add mango to a smoothie it turns the smoothie kind of fiberous unless I blend it a long time. However I don't like smoothies like water either from so much blending. Nonetheless I made 2 servings and we did drink it all. I would consider adding ice cubes though. Read More

Great! I used coconut milk to replace the milk and cream of coconut. I didn't need the extra sweetness as my fruit was very ripe. Thanks for the recipe - its a good one. Read More

This was a nice refreshing smoothie. I froze the banana used soy milk and substituted orange juice for the pineapple as I didn't have any and the result was a creamy tasty smoothie. There are a few strands of mango hanging out in this but it's nothing you can't put up with for the taste. Read More

Smoothies provide a lot of margin for error. I made this recipe with what I had on hand plain yogurt instead of vanilla orange/strawberry/banana juice instead of pineapple and I did not have any cream of coconut. Without the cream of coconut it was a little tart but still good. I could have added splenda or another sweetener but enjoyed it as it was. I added some strawberries which were awesome. I look forward to trying this with the proper ingredients and realize my "4" isn't fair in light of my substitutions. Read More

I've never heard of cream of coconut, but the rest of the ingrdients made a yummy drink. I found it a bit thick, but a few ice cubes solved that problem. This was a hit with the little people. Read More

Very good. I used what I had on hand...fresh pineapple instead of juice frozen banana fresh mango nonfat vanilla ice cream and used coconut milk in place of the milk/cream of coconut. I also added about 1/2 cup of ice to make it thicker. Very yummy and creamy! Read More
