Expert Tips + Ingredient Substitutions
Here are some expert tips to make this recipe perfectly:
Coconut Milk: I like to use homemade coconut milk, however, this can be substituted with your favorite non-dairy milk.
Pineapple + Mango: You can use either fresh or frozen fruit. However, if you use both frozen pineapple and frozen mango, it will be extra thick and you may need to add a little extra milk to give it a smoothie consistency and omit the optional ice cubes.
Protein Powder: Epic Organic Plant Protein (Vanilla Lucuma) is my preferred protein powder, however, feel free to substitute with your favorite plant-based protein powder, using 3 tablespoons.
Ice Cubes: This is optional if you are using fresh fruit, but it will give the smoothie a thicker, frosty texture.
Serving Size: This recipe will make approximately (1) large smoothie or (2) smaller smoothies. Nutritional information is calculated for (1) smaller smoothie which is (1) serving.

Hi! I've really been enjoying your blog.
Quick question- Are you able to taste the protein powder in this smoothie?
I tried using another brand before, blending it with fruit, but the bitter aftertaste and extreme thickness were a turn off. I would be so overjoyed to find a recipe that would not only make it palatable but enjoyable.
Thanks for your time and your great blog!
Hi Erica! Thank you and I'm glad you are here! I like to add the Epic Plant-Based Protein to all my smoothies and probably taste that "taste" you describe with my other smoothies more than this one.
The Tropical Breeze smoothie is the sweetest smoothie I make (because of the extra fruit in it), so I would say this one would be a good one to give protein powder another try because the extra sweetness from the pineapple should help to offset the aftertaste. If not, I would just add a little more pineapple.
I know exactly what you are talking about (that distinct taste) and although it doesn't bother me, my husband comments sometimes about his smoothies being too thick, so I just add a little more coconut or almond milk to them to help with that.
Have you ever tried the Epic Plant-Based Vanilla Lucuma Protein? It has 26 grams of raw, vegan protein and you might like the taste of that better? They have the little single-serve packs you could get to try it out before buying a big container.
I sure do hope you like the smoothie if you do try it. Thanks for visiting make yourself at home 🙂
