Mango Smoothie Recipe Ingredients

Here’s what you need to make this healthy mango smoothie recipe:

  • Frozen mango chunks – Grab a bag of frozen mango from your grocery store, or get fresh mango. When it’s ripe, peel, chop, and freeze it yourself. The frozen fruit gives this smoothie a luscious creamy texture.
  • Frozen banana – Along with the mango, it makes the smoothie thick and creamy. The fruit also sweetens the smoothie naturally. No added sweetener required!
  • Almond milk – It helps the frozen ingredients blend into a smooth puree. If you don’t keep almond milk on hand, swap in whatever milk you prefer. For example, oat milk or regular dairy milk works nicely too.
  • Whole milk Greek yogurt – It adds richness and tangy flavor.
  • And fresh lime juice – For a bright, refreshing kick!

Make it vegan or dairy-free!

For a plant-based twist on this mango smoothie recipe, replace the yogurt with full-fat coconut milk.

  • Tip: Freeze the coconut milk in ice cube trays ahead of time. The coconut ice cubes make this smoothie extra-thick and frosty!

How to Make a Mango Smoothie

This mango smoothie recipe is so simple to make!

Place the mango, banana, almond milk, yogurt, and lime juice in a blender.

  • Tip: I like to use a high-speed blender for this recipe because it allows me to make a thicker smoothie. But if you don’t have one, that’s ok! The smoothie will still come out great. You’ll just need to add more liquid to get the puree totally smooth.

Pour the smoothie into glasses, and garnish it with diced mango and fresh mint, if desired. Enjoy!

Mix-ins and Variations

I love this mango smoothie recipe as written, but like all smoothies, it’s flexible! Feel free to change it up based on what you’re craving or what you have on hand. Here are a few ideas to get you started:

  • Swap the fruit. Replace the mango with peaches, pineapple, or strawberries, or use a mix of fruits.
  • Add a veggie. Blend in a big handful of kale or frozen spinach. You could even add mint or basil for an unexpected twist!
  • Pack in more protein. Add a scoop of vanilla protein powder.
  • Make it extra-fruity by replacing the milk with orange juice.
  • Make it a smoothie bowl. Top it off with diced mango, goji berries, chia seeds, coconut flakes, cashew butter, and/or toasted cashews.
