Mango and Strawberry Smoothie

Refreshing smoothies are synonymous with warm Summer mornings. In the past I’ve created several smoothies inspired by decadent desserts, but today’s smoothie recipe is actually inspired by one of my favorite adult beverages: the margarita! ♡♡♡

I wanted to create a smoothie – or mocktail, as my little brother might call it – that was healthy, pretty, and guaranteed to quench your thirst. Basically I wanted to make you a margarita that’s totally acceptable to slurp down at 8 am.

I was also on a mother trucking mission to make a smoothie recipe that didn’t call for frozen banana. <— Many of you have requested this in the past; I was listening 😉

Friends, meet the Strawberry Mango Smoothie! Isn’t she a beaut?

Strawberry Mango Smoothie

This smoothie was 100% inspired by these Raspberry Mango Margaritas. I decided to play off of that idea, ditch the raspberry in favor of strawberry, ditch the booze in favor of fresh squeezed orange juice (go ahead and add some if you want; I won’t judge), and test test test.

Recipe testing is truly the best part of my job!

How to make a Strawberry Mango Smoothie

I chose to blend the mango smoothie mix and the frozen strawberry smoothie mix separately so they could be swirled together right before serving. I did this mainly because I find it so aesthetically pleasing (and fun), but if you’re short on time, please feel free to blend everything together in one batch. They will be equally delicious… but may lose a few pretty points since you won’t have the vibrant color duo shining through your glass.

This mango strawberry smoothie recipe is made up of fresh fruity flavors, a kick of bright citrus, and not much else. Feel free to add a tablespoon of sugar or honey to the smoothie base, if you prefer a very sweet treat, or leave it as is for a naturally delicious drink.

WHAT YOU NEED TO MAKE IT

INGREDIENT NOTES & SUBSTITUTIONS

  • Greek yogurt – I use plain, natural, unsweetened, Greek yogurt but you can use other types as well. Either another type of plain and unsweetened yogurt, a plain sweetened yogurt – or even one with strawberry or mango flavor.
  • Banana can be fresh or frozen, but should be ripe for maximum sweetness
  • Frozen strawberries & mango can be switched for fresh versions. If none of the ingredients are frozen you might want to add an ice cube while mixing to keep the smoothie really cold.

HOW TO MAKE IT

  1. Place banana with strawberry and mango pieces in a high powered blender
  2. Mix for 2 minutes, until smooth without any chunks
  3. Add yogurt and mix again for 30 seconds, until smooth and even in texture
  4. Pour in a tall glass
  5. Top with some strawberry pieces and a straw – serve immediately!

TIPS & TRICKS

  • Use a really ripe banana to get a lot of sweetness
  • Make sure the fruits are well mixed before adding yogurt – this is the secret to a seriously creamy and clump-free smoothie
  • Make it vegan by swapping Greek yogurt for water. Start with half a cup and add more as needed to get your desired consistency.
  • Prep ahead with freezer packs – place all ingredients for one smoothie in a plastic bag and freeze. Then when you want to make a smoothie – just take out a bag, let it thaw slightly, and pour all the ingredients in the mixer. Add a splash of milk. water or yogurt to help it blend. These freezer packs are good for up to 3 months.
