Some more ideas
For a tropical banana smoothie, replace the mango and plain yogurt with 1 large sliced banana and 150 g (5½ oz) low-fat, tropical fruit-flavoured yogurt. * To make a kiwi and raspberry smoothie, use 2 peeled and chopped kiwi fruits, 225 g (8 oz) raspberries and 300 ml (10 fl oz) apple or white grape juice. Sweeten to taste with a little honey, if necessary. * Try a pear and blackberry smoothie, made with 2 peeled, cored and chopped ripe dessert pears, 125 g (4½ oz) blackberries, the pulpy flesh of 2 passion fruit and 300 ml (10 fl oz) cranberry juice. * Another delicious smoothie is pineapple and strawberry. Use 1 peeled, cored and chopped small pineapple with 225 g (8 oz) strawberries, 300 ml (10 fl oz) apple juice and 1 tbsp elderflower cordial.
Smoothies are made very quickly, using raw fruit, so they retain the maximum nutritional value of their ingredients. * When made with milk and yogurt, a smoothie will also contain protein, calcium and many B vitamins – getting close to being a meal in a glass. * Mango is an excellent source of the antioxidant beta-carotene, which the body can convert into vitamin A. This vitamin is essential for healthy skin and good vision, especially in dim light. Mangoes also provide substantial amounts of vitamin C as well as vitamins B6 and E.
Each serving provides
Excellent source of vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin E. Good source of calcium, vitamin B2, vitamin B6, vitamin B12. Useful source of copper, folate, niacin, potassium, vitamin B1, zinc.

Tropical Mango Smoothie Ingredients
For this mango glass of tropical deliciousness, we’re keeping things as simple as possible with just three ingredients. You’ll need a mango, your favorite Greek yogurt, and some milk!
- Mango: For the mango portion of this recipe, you’ll need 1 cup of diced fruit, either fresh or frozen. Any mango variety will work well!
- Greek Yogurt:Greek yogurt will add thickness and protein to the smoothie. Go for ½ cup of either plain or vanilla.
- Milk: Finish it off with ½ cup of a liquid! I prefer milk here, but you could use orange juice, coconut water, or a plant-based milk.
Top 25 of the Best Mango Smoothie Recipes
Are you a mango lover? Or a smoothie lover? If you love both, then you should definitely keep on reading this article.
This year is nearly on its end, and one good New Year resolution that you should work on is following the road to a healthy lifestyle. It’s the perfect time to keep yourself healthy and as a first step, I will share you some of the easiest, healthiest, and refreshing mango smoothie recipes that you should definitely try right now.
Gather your blenders, food processors, and ingredients, and let’s start cooking!
- 2 Indian Alphonso mangoes, in season from April (or use canned puréed mangoes)
- 250–300ml/9–10½ fl oz cold milk
- ½–1 tsp runny honey, or to taste, according to the size and sweetness of the mangoes
- ice cubes, to serve
Stand one of the mangoes upright with the narrow end facing you. Slice off the 'cheeks' on either side of the stone and slice these in half lengthwise.
Cut around the stone to take off as much flesh as possible, capturing all the running juices in a bowl.
Remove the skin by peeling or cutting the fruit carefully off it. Repeat with the other mango. Discard the skin and purée the flesh and juice in a food processor or blender.
Add the milk and honey and combine until it becomes a thick smooth mass. Chill until ready to drink. Add the ice cubes and serve straight from the fridge. A little goes a long way, so serve in small glasses.
Mango Smoothie Bowl
If you liked my pitaya smoothie bowl, you’re gonna LOVE my mango smoothie bowl. Well, that is, if you love mangoes. But who doesn’t love mangoes?
Mango smoothies might just be one of my favorite things – and something I splurged on (a wee bit too much) when I was in Thailand a few months ago. When tropical fruit is abundant and cheap, it’s what you do. When in Rome, right?
But instead of a mango smoothie drink, today I’m whipping up a mango smoothie bowl. I’ve added a few other flavors and nutrients, while giving you a hearty, chewable breakfast. And that’s one of the reasons I love smoothies bowls – they’re chewable. Chewing your food sends signals to your brain to start enzyme production which makes digestion easier. And quite frankly, it just feel more like a breakfast meal than a drinkable smoothie.
You probably already know that the more color on your plate (or bowl) the more nutrients you’re getting. So when it comes to smoothie bowls (or any meal in general), the goal is bright and vibrant! With mangoes as the base, I’ve boosted the bowl with pineapple, blueberries, coconut and granola.
But let’s take a closer look at what’s in this bowl:
- Mangoes: an excellent source of vitamin A, beta-carotene and potassium. They also provide vitamin B6, vitamin C and vitamin E.
- Pineapples: rich in vitamin C and bromelain, an enzyme that helps to digest food. Bromelain also has anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer properties.
- Blueberries: one of the highest antioxidant fruits (and longevity fruits!) due to it’s anthocyanin compounds.
- Coconut: high in potassium and B-complex vitamins, as well as lauric acid – which increases good-HDL cholesterol.
- Chai Spiced Granola: spices such as cinnamon and ginger provide antioxidant, antiseptic, anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial properties, while the nuts are rich in energy, fatty acids and nutrients.
So that’s one heck of a nutrient dense breakfast!
Similar to my pitaya smoothie bowl, always remember to add the liquid first. You want the liquid at the bottom of your blender, to help the blades do their job. Then, add the fruit. I recommend pre-slicing and freezing your fruit for smoothie bowls. Just slice up various fruits, place them on a baking sheet or plate with parchment paper and place in the freezer. Once frozen, you can package the fruit chunks individually in ziplocs bags. It makes breakfast a breeze!
By adding frozen fruit, you’ll also get a good, thick consistency – ideal for preventing your toppings from sinking in. If instead you add ice to cool it down, your bowl will become watery as it comes to room temperature.
Feel free to have fun with this bowl. If you have other fruit on hand, go for it. You really can’t make a bad smoothie bowl…especially when you’re starting with mangoes.
Like most smoothies, this one is super simple to make and doesn’t require a lot of ingredients. You can find the full, printable recipe below in the recipe card at the bottom of the post. Let’s take a look at what you’ll need:
- strawberries – frozen strawberries either whole, or halved, see notes below on using fresh fruit.
- mango chunks – best results if using frozen mango. See notes below on using fresh fruit.
- banana slices – the banana can either be fresh or frozen, whichever is most convenient. The banana adds creaminess to the smoothie.
- ice cubes – you can use cubes or crushed ice.
- coconut water – the coconut water is delicious in this recipe but I have lots of suggestions on other liquids that you can use in this recipe, see below.
Add one scoop of vanilla flavored protein powder to this mango and strawberry smoothie for a protein boost!
- 1½ cup (360 ml) vanilla soy yogurt, or low-fat vanilla yogurt
- ½ cup (120 ml) water
- 2 (250 g) medium oranges, peeled, halved
- 2 cups (300 g) frozen mango chunks
- 1 cup (130 g) ice cubes
- Place all ingredients into the Vitamix container in the order listed and secure the lid.
- Start the blender on its lowest speed, then quickly increase to its highest speed.
- Blend for 45 seconds or until desired consistency is reached, using the tamper to push ingredients toward the blades.
This mango smoothie recipe is a healthy breakfast or snack. Mango makes the smoothie sweet & creamy and matcha makes it healthy & green!
I’m not sure if you all noticed, but Jack made his 3rd post a few weeks back. (Check out his Blueberry Smoothie, if you missed it). This guy, I tell you, is crazy about smoothies. If he’s the smoothie king around here, then I am the matcha mistress. But both together? Well that’s just a match(a) made in heaven. (I know, bad pun, I just couldn’t help myself…)
Key Mango Smoothie Ingredients
If you look at this mango smoothie recipe, you’ll notice that I leave out a common smoothie ingredient: banana. That’s because fresh mango works as a nice thickener on its own, so there’s no need for bananas, yogurt, or nuts. I know there are a lot of smoothie-loving-banana-haters out there, so this one’s for you. Plus, the mango is sweet & refreshing, and it goes perfectly with the other key ingredient in this recipe: matcha.
Matcha is my superfood of choice for this yummy breakfast blend. Made from grinding the whole green tea leaf, it’s full of antioxidants and even some caffeine, so this drink is the perfect morning pick-me-up!
Mango Smoothie Recipe Variations
If you’re new to making smoothies, you’ll learn pretty quickly that they’re some of the most flexible recipes out there. Feel free to swap in your favorite fruit, juices, nut butters, protein powders, or superfood boosts! Here are some ideas for this recipe:
