This mango smoothie recipe is like sunshine in a cup. With its radiant golden-yellow hue and tropical flavor, it embodies the essence of summer. However, its bright taste makes it equally enjoyable on those less sunny days.

Why This Mango Smoothie Recipe Works

  • Convenient – Made with frozen fruits, this quick and easy recipe requires just 5 minutes to blend and serve.
  • Nutritious – This mango smoothie tastes good enough to be dessert but it contains dates, collagen, and flax meal for a healthy boost of fiber, protein, and essential nutrients.
  • Refreshing – Use this to quench your thirst on a hot summer day by the pool. Its cool, fruity flavors and coconut water base help beat the heat and keep you hydrated.

Fresh Mango vs Frozen Mango

While you can use fresh mangoes for your smoothie, I prefer the convenience of frozen mangoes. I get the appeal of fresh fruit but frozen fruit is actually frozen at the peak of its ripeness so you aren’t missing out on any nutrients. Aside from that, making a smoothie with fresh fruit is far less predictable in terms of taste and consistency.

Tools You’ll Need

Ingredients You Will Need for Mango Smoothies

Here is a breakdown of what you will need to make this mango pineapple smoothie recipe. For actual measurements, see the recipe card at the end of this post.

  • Frozen mango chunks – Use frozen so you can enjoy mangos even when they aren’t in season.
  • Frozen banana – Use frozen banana to avoid using ice. It thickens the smoothie and gives it a frostier consistency.
  • Frozen pineapple – This adds a tangy twist and that island flair. It contains bromelain which aids digestion.
  • Coconut water – This provides hydration and a subtle coconut flavor.
  • Orange juice – This adds a touch of acidity to balance the sweetness of the fruits. It provides a refreshing citrus note.
  • Vital Proteins Vanilla Collagen – The vanilla flavor complements the other flavors. It also adds a boost of protein and promotes skin, hair, and joint health.
  • Medjool date – Pitted dates act as a natural sweetener, adding a warm, caramel-like depth to the smoothie. They’re also rich in fiber, potassium, and antioxidants.
  • Flax meal – This adds a nutty flavor while providing omega-3 fatty acids and fiber.
  • Maple syrup – Grade A maple syrup is another natural sweetener. It’s optional but enhances the overall taste.
  • Greek vanilla yogurt – Use a whole milk yogurt to enrich the smoothie, making it even creamier. Greek yogurt also adds protein, calcium, and probiotics.

Tips and Tricks

  • Use a blender tamp for smoother blending. This tool gently pushes ingredients towards the blades while blending to ensure even blending and a creamy texture. If you don’t have one, you’ll need to pause blending to manually scrape down the sides.
  • Use frozen fruit for your mango smoothie recipe. Using ice can dilute the flavor of the smoothie, while frozen fruit adds natural sweetness and thickness without compromising taste.
  • Feel free to adjust the consistency. If your smoothie is too thick, add more liquid (coconut water or orange juice) gradually until you reach your desired consistency. If it’s too thin, add more frozen fruit.

Variations

  • Juice – Instead of orange juice, you could use pineapple juice.
  • Fruit – Swap the pineapple with peaches, blueberries, or strawberries.
  • Smoothie Bowl Use this smoothie as your base then add your favorite toppings like chia seeds, oats, goji berries, and diced fruit.
  • Dairy-Free – Need a mango smoothie recipe without yogurt? Swap the Greek yogurt for an equal amount of ripe avocado.
