Sweet ripe mangos need little help in the smoothie department. We blended ours with a little low-fat milk and yogurt for tang, sort of like a mango lassi. It’s a welcome pick-me-up in the morning but also refreshing to sip alongside spicy foods or as an after-dinner dessert alternative.

You’re likely to find one of six types of mango throughout the year, but no matter what variety is available, you want to be sure to use a ripe mango for blending. It should give slightly, like a ripe peach or avocado. Cut the sides away from the pit (check out this simple mango cutting technique for more insight) and shave off any additional flesh at an angle.

Easy Fruit Smoothie Recipe

This week the internet exploded. Not because of political scandals, the return of Downtown Abby, or even because some guy raised a baby duck in his beard.

No, it’s because with the new year comes new resolutions for better health and a plethora of new homemade smoothie recipes. It’s a cool and refreshing domination of the www. and perfect timing to add mine to the pack with my tropical mango banana smoothie.

Back in the day when I would drag myself into the office after my morning torture weight training session with my trainer, I would somehow will my legs one. step. at. a. time. to the community kitchen, meagerly toss a handful of ice into the blender, peel a banana, add a dash of milk and pour in a packet of protein powder. In my post workout trance I’d refuel with a fantastic protein-powered shake that nourished my rebuilding-muscle tissue and keep me full and satisfied ’til lunch.

Since I don’t work in the office anymore, I can invest a little more time and effort into my smoothie cravings. Sometimes I get a even get a little exotic. Okay, maybe more tropical than exotic. Ah hell, who cares. I’m going big, and going with exotic.

What’s in This Mango Smoothie?

This truly is the best smoothie recipe. It’s fruity, tropical, and oh-so refreshing. Here’s what you’ll need to make this mango smoothie:

  • Non-fat yogurt
  • Greek yogurt
  • Ice cubes
  • Banana
  • Mango
  • Unsweetened coconut
  • Vanilla extract
  • Honey
  • Chia seeds

What are chia seeds? They’re teeny tiny nuggets of complete protein and do double-duty since they contain all of the essential amino acids your body needs.

Chia seeds are completely optional in this smoothie, it’s your drink afterall, but if you haven’t tried them, you really ought to give them a try. They’re the perfect addition to this good-for-you smoothie blast.

How to Make a Mango Smoothie

This mango smoothie is super creamy, and unlike some smoothies it doesn’t break up as it comes to room temperature thanks to the creaminess of the banana base. I think it should be a rule that all smoothies include a banana. Creamy, potassium fortified. They’re a superfood for sure.

To make a mango smoothie, simply add all the ingredients into a blender and pulse until it’s reached your desired consistency. For a thicker smoothie, add more ice or frozen banana. For a thinner smoothie, add more milk.

And yes, they’re called smoothies for a reason. But I still crave a little chew in my taste. So I like to top my mango smoothie with a little extra coconut, some chunked up mango, and for another protein boost I sprinkle on whole-grain chia seeds.

Can I Use Regular Yogurt Instead of Greek?

If you don’t have Greek yogurt on hand, you can still use regular yogurt. It just won’t be as creamy or as protein packed. Greek yogurt makes this smoothie taste more like a shake than a healthy drink. Boom! Fooled the naysayers on that one.

Tips for the Best Smoothie

When first figuring out how to make a fruit smoothie, the key to sweetening it up is using extra ripe fruit. They may not be as pretty, but those concentrated natural sugars lend a sweetness that can’t be compared.

You’re welcome to use fresh or frozen fruit in this homemade smoothie. If using frozen fruit, you may not need to use as much ice as the recipe calls for.

To make this even more protein potent, add a scoop or two of vanilla protein powder. I like this brand  because it’s the light version and has the same amount of protein but less calories.

Mango Smoothie

Here’s how to make the best mango smoothie: it’s got the perfect sweet flavor and creamy texture! We dare you not to take another sip.

No, we’re not using hyperbole. This really is the perfect mango smoothie. In fact, it tastes more like mango ice cream than a healthy drink! This bright yellow puree has the best sweet flavor and the creamiest icy texture. It’s become a bit of a legend in our household. We adore our sweet strawberry banana smoothie and rich vanilla protein smoothie, but the mango smoothie…this one is the ultimate treat. Trust us, we made quite a few bad ones until we arrived at this perfect formula. Here are all our secrets!

Why it’s the best mango smoothie

Some mango smoothies are just good: but this one is great. What makes it so special?

  • It’s got pure, sweet flavor. It’s perfectly mango-forward.
  • It’s got a silky smooth, creamy texture. Just the right thickness for sipping!
  • It’s full of healthy ingredients. There’s no added sweetener: just fruit.
  • It’s easily plant based. It calls for just ½ cup of milk, which can be non-dairy milk of your choosing!

Ingredients in this mango smoothie

This healthy mango smoothie has only a handful of ingredients and the majority is fruit! Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Frozen mango: Frozen mango is easy to find at your local grocery, and easy to store. This is typically what we’ll use for the mango smoothie. You also can use fresh mango if you have it onhand: it just won’t have as icy of a texture.
  • Banana: The banana helps to make a creamy texture and accentuate the sweetness.
  • Water & Milk: A little creaminess is helpful for the overall texture, so we’ve used a combination of water and milk together. You can use any type of dairy or non-dairy milk (more on that below).
  • Ice: Ice makes the perfect frothy texture.
  • Fresh lemon juice: Lemon juice is the key to brightening the flavors: it’s like the salt of sweet foods!

How to make it plant based / vegan!

You can make this mango smoothie plant-based or vegan by using your favorite non-dairy milk instead of dairy milk. Here’s a run-down:

  • Oat milk: The flavor is sweet and it has a nice creamy texture
  • Almond milk: A little closer to water in its texture, but it’s popular and easy to find
  • Coconut milk: Super thick and adds a strong coconut flavor (it would be delicious here!)
  • Soy milk: Has a nice sweet flavor and thick texture

Mix ins and variations:

This mango smoothie is perfect as is (in our minds, at least!). But if you want to add a little pizzazz: here are some options!

  • Stir in Greek yogurt. Want to add a hit of protein? Add ¼ to ½ cup Greek yogurt in place of the milk. You may need a splash more water to get it to blend.
  • Add cashew butter. Another way to add protein that’s vegan is a nut butter: we’d recommend cashews here to compliment the mango.
  • Swap in frozen pineapple or peaches. Swap out a cup of the frozen mango for frozen fruit of another variety.
  • Throw in coconut. Throw in a handful of coconut (or toasted coconut) for a more tropical vibe.
  • Go big on banana. Head to Mango Banana Smoothie.

Smoothie storage

Smoothies are best eaten immediately. But this mango smoothie actually lasts 1 to 2 days refrigerated! Store it in a sealed container or a mason jar with the lid on. It may separate, which is perfectly natural. Just shake it up and you’re good to go! It’s nice to make this smoothie in advance so you can have breakfast or a snack on demand.

This mango smoothie recipe is…

Vegetarian and gluten-free. For vegan, plant-based and dairy-free, use non-dairy milk.
