I had some frozen mango in the freezer that I needed to use, so I decided to make a tropical mango smoothie bowl with some pineapple too.
I made this mango smoothie bowl without bananas because you know, not everyone likes bananas, and you can still make a sweet and thick smoothie bowl without bananas.

If you are filling extra and want to swap an ingredient or add a couple of extra ones, here are some variations you could try that I have personally loved:
- Add Yogurt: Adding yogurt will not only add protein and calcium to the smoothie bowl but also make it extra creamy! 1/3 cup is plenty.

I recommend that you use a food processor if you don’t own a high-speed blender such as a Vitamix.
I prefer to use a food processor and in some instances a Nutribullet when I make smoothie bowls.
Smoothie Bowl Tips:
- Frozen Fruit Is a Must: When making this smoothie bowl it’s key that you use frozen fruit.
- Use Minimal Liquid: The more liquid you add, the looser the smoothie will be. Add the recommended liquid amount, and gradually add more if needed.
- Consume The Smoothie ASAP: Once the smoothie is blended and served, consume it immediately.
