Mangoes – You can use fresh or frozen mangoes to make this smoothie. I personally like to use the Indian variety of mangoes like Alphonso, Kesar, Dussheri, etc as they’re super juicy and flavorful You can use any variety that you like.

Pineapple Juice – It is used to thin down the smoothie and give a tropical twist to it. You can replace it with orange juice, apple juice, or coconut water.
