5 Ingredient Pineapple Mango Bowl with Slivered Almonds

by Alli

Maybe it’s because I’m looking forward to spending a week at the beach next month. Maybe it’s because I love all things tropical including pineapple, mango, and tropical islands. Or, maybe it’s because I’m yearning for summer. I can’t help it. I’m a summer girl and Pineapple Mango Bowl is calling my name.

5 Ingredient Pineapple Mango Bowl

Actually, this Pineapple Mango Bowl is a breakfast bowl. But it’s so pretty, we can rename it Pineapple Mango Snack Bowl or Pineapple Mango Party Bowl. It’s way too cute to place in a breakfast box. Free the Pineapple Mango Bowl!

This recipe is so easy, a kid could do it – except for slicing the pineapple in half and cutting out the fruit. An adult needs to do that part.

Let’s Make a Pineapple Mango Bowl with Slivered Almonds

For two servings, we’ll need one for real pineapple – none of that canned stuff.

Helpful Hint: Once a pineapple is picked, it doesn’t ripen any further. It is what it is. There are three ways to tell if a pineapple is ripe.

  • Smell it – A pineapple should smell sweet, but not fermented. No smell means it’s probably not ripe.
  • Squeeze it – It should be firm, but it should give very slightly when you squeeze it.
  • Weigh it – Pick up the pineapple to make sure it feels heavy for its size. The heavier the pineapple, the juicier. More juice also means a sweeter, riper pineapple.

We’ll also need one cup low-fat Greek yogurt, 1 cup diced mango, 1/2 cup blueberries and a tablespoon of slivered almonds.

Slice the pineapple in half vertically.

Carefully remove the center core.

Cut out the fruit and chop. (At this point, you may notice the blueberry yogurt. I asked my husband to stop by the grocery store and pick up low-fat Greek yogurt. I didn’t know I needed to specify plain yogurt. So, he picked up blueberry.) Actually, it’s really good in my Pineapple Mango Bowl.

Arrange yogurt, chopped pineapple, chopped mango, blueberries and almonds in rows in both pineapple halves. That’s it.

Now that is one great looking pineapple. Thanks for the tips on how to tell if a pineapple is ripe. I didn’t know they stopped ripening when they are picked. Have fun at the beach and your pineapple bowl looks delicious and wish I was eating one right now.

I love food served in a pineapple! They had a dish at our state fair last year that served a rice based dish inside a pineapple.

Yum! I love pineapple and mango! I’ve had pineapple that started to ferment…gross. It makes me very sad when I don’t get a good one, so I’ll try your tip about it smelling sweet. Now if only my allergies would let me smell stuff!

This looks yummy. I have used pineapples as bowls to make fruit salads out of. But this looks like a kind of fun and different fruit salad. I will have to try this sometime.

Very well presented and heart-fully delicious. I grow up in a tropical country and pineapple is always present in our table. Also one of my all time favorite fruit.

What a pretty fruit bowl! I love your idea! Perfect to have in the summer, because these fleshy fruits are loaded with Vit. C and other minerals. My favorite tropical fruits are mangoes, papayas, lychees, and pineapples!
