There’s no better time to blend up a pineapple-mango smoothie than when those fruits are in peak season.
They pop up in abundance at local markets in the summertime, but it can be tricky work figuring out if you’re picking fruit that’s ripe and juicy.
To pick a good pineapple or mango, it’s important to trust your senses.
Rather than poking and prodding your fruit, focus on weight, color, and fragrance.
Pineapples should be heavy for their size with solid green leaves at the crown. You’ll know a pineapple is fully ripe when its bright green body has a sweet fragrance.
When selecting a mango, look for one that’s multicolored with swaths of deep red and bright green.
They should smell sweetly fragrant and be somewhat sappy at the base. Once you’ve got your fruits, combine them in this tangy Pineapple Mango Smoothie recipe.
