"I just love mango and this goes together so nicely! You can use fresh or frozen mango and fresh or canned pineapple. Adding a banana is good too and makes it a smoothie! UPDATE: Due to reviews I have changed the ingredient pineapple chunks to crushed pineapple to help eliminate stringiness. :)"

"I used crushed pineapple instead of pineapple chunks. I think this helped with the stringy texture that others experience when drinking. Made for Everyday is a Holiday Tag"
"Well, that is a refreshing drink! Me and my dad rated it a four- great taste, but either I didn't blend it long enough, or our blender just can't get the texture totally smooth. It has a really nice fruity flavour. I did put the banana in with it, and thought it added a really nice touch. Made for the Caribbean beverage challenge, ZWT5 on behalf of the Genies. Thanks Sharon123!!!"
"I made this using fresh mango and oj and homemade pineapple in syrup. DS #2 really liked it as it was, but DS #1 and I were not sure about it. Instead of drinking our portions, I froze them into pops--yummy. I want to try this using the banana, I'm pretty sure we'll like it more with it. Thank you for posting! Made for ZWT5 & Dining Daredevils."
"This was made for DD and myself. As a toddler she drank some. The problem I had with it was that it was not smooth. I used canned pineapple and it brought a bitty and stringy texture to the drink. However the flavour is great for a summer morning breakfast. I did use fresh mango and ice but none of the optional ingredients as I didn't have them on hand. I'm thinking a better quality canned pineapple or fresh would be smoother or maybe in this case the addition of a banana would help. However I won't be making this again. Photo posted. Made for ZWT5 for Cooks With Dirty Faces."
"A refreshing morning eye opener. I'm thinking I'll do room service to kid#3 and hope its glow will wake her up! Made for Recipe Swap #29 Aus/New Zealand"
"*Reviewed for ZWT5 Caribbean visit for the Zaar Chow Hounds team* Loved it. QUick and easy and tasted like a tropical dream. Add some ice-cubes and some mint for garnish. My daughters enjoyed a huge drink each. Easily makes 4 regular serves. Photo to be posted"
"Yummy smoothie. I used frozen mango and canned pineapple. I'm sure fresh ingredients would have been much better, but I enjoyed it without. I didn't add any ice to mine, but wish I would have. I have the rest of the pitcher in the freezer as I drink my first glass...I like my smoothies thick. Thanks for the tasty after work "snack"! Made for 1-2-3 Hit Wonders."
"Made this with the 3 ingredients listed (used 1 1/2 cups of frozen mango), plus a banana & had a WONDERFUL TASTING SMOOTHIE! Thanks for a great drink! [Tagged, made & reviewed in Beverage Tag]"
"FRUITY DELICIOUS! I made it with the can of pineapple, frozen mango, ice and orange juice. I tasted it and felt it needed to be sweeter so added Splenda and vanilla and then it was perfect! I think it would be great with the banana and lime in addition to the first 3 ingredients. Freddy Cat says thanks for the drink! Made for the Zaar recipe tag game."
