Craving a McDonald’s Mango Pineapple Smoothie on a hot day? I’ve been there, which is why I’m sharing this delicious copycat recipe you can make at home!

McDonald_s Mango Pineapple Smoothie

McDonald’s uses a creamy blend of tangy pineapple juice, pureed mango, and yogurt in its smoothie. The mango especially gives it that super smooth texture and irresistible sweetness.

The blend of sweet and sour is what makes this smoothie recipe such a classic. Make sure to blend yours with ice for that long-lasting chill!

The McDonald’s smoothie can be served for breakfast, dessert, or any time of the day! Any way you enjoy it, this refreshing and easy mango pineapple smoothie is guaranteed to keep you cool all summer long!

Tips For Making The Best McDonald’s Mango Pineapple Smoothie


  • Use frozen fruits instead of fresh fruits. Frozen fruits will give your smoothie that thick, creamy texture just like McDonald’s!

  • Freeze fresh mango and pineapple and use that for your smoothie instead of prepackaged frozen fruit. If you have overripe fresh fruit this is a great way to use it up.

  • Pour your liquid ingredients into the blender before the frozen ingredients. This will prevent any damage to the blades.

  • Add your fruits to the blender gradually so they blend evenly. This way you don’t end up with big chunks.

  • Try adding greek yogurt for an even thicker mango pineapple smoothie. If you want to cut back on the total calories, use creamy low-fat yogurt.

  • Swap out almond milk for whatever type of milk you prefer, like coconut milk or cow milk. Almond milk makes this smoothie healthier since it doesn’t contain saturated fat.

Other Ingredients To Add To Your McDonald’s Mango Pineapple Smoothie Recipe

Fruit Juices (Apple or Orange)

Fruit juices are a great way to add different flavors to your smoothie! Apple juice is nice and sweet and can balance out the sour mango and pineapple.

You can also add orange juice, which will help boost the vitamin C content of your smoothie!

The juice will make your smoothie runnier, so you may need to add more frozen fruit to combat this.

Honey

If you want your smoothie a bit sweeter, try adding 1 tablespoon of honey to this recipe. Honey is better than granulated sugar for beverages because it doesn’t need to dissolve.

Honey alternatives like agave syrup and maple syrup have a similar texture and would also be delicious!

Ice

For an extra chilled smoothie, add some ice cubes when you blend it up. This will also help make your McDonald’s Mango Pineapple Smoothie even thicker!

As the ice melts, it will dilute the flavor and sweetness of your drink. In this case, you can always add some extra fruit juice or sweetener.

Chia Seeds/Flax Seeds

Give your smoothie a nutritious boost by topping it with chia or flax seeds! They’re packed with fiber, antioxidants, and omega-3 fatty acids.

The flax seeds add a pleasant nutty flavor and some crunch. When chia seeds absorb the liquid they become soft and chewy like tapioca balls!

Storage Instructions

You can store your McDonald’s Mango Pineapple Smoothie either in the freezer or the fridge. Make sure it’s stored in an airtight container to keep it fresh and prevent spills.

Keep this smoothie in the refrigerator for a maximum of 1-2 days. If you’re freezing this smoothie, it can be stored in your freezer for 3 months.

If you’re making a big batch of smoothies to freeze, make sure you freeze it right after blending. This ensures that the smoothie stays fresh and full of nutrients!

Any leftover frozen fruit from this mango pineapple smoothie recipe will keep in your freezer for about 10-18 months. The almond milk and yogurt are safe to keep in the fridge for about 7-10 days.

Nutrition Advice


This McDonald’s Mango Pineapple Smoothie recipe is full of nutrients from the mango and pineapple.

Mango provides vitamin A, vitamin K, and potassium. Vitamin A is a critical vitamin which helps maintain eye health, immunity, and cell growth.

Pineapple contains antioxidants that help fight disease. It’s also a main source of bromelain, which is a digestive enzyme that has pain-relieving and anti-inflammatory properties!

McDonald’s Mango Pineapple Smoothies also contain added sugar from the fruit. Consuming a lot of added sugars can cause cavities and increase your risk for obesity. (1)

Due to the high sugar content, this pineapple mango smoothie is better as an occasional treat or snack. – Kirsten Mae Magbanua, RND
