Mango Smoothie – an easy fruit smoothie with frozen mangoes, banana, yogurt and milk. Thick, creamy, and such a refreshing way to start the day!
Smoothies are such a great way to start the day. Not only are the tasty, but they are good for you. The thing about making your own smoothie at home is you control the ingredients, the amount of sweetener added, the liquid used and everything else. So you can make it nutrient dense very easily!
A trick to being able to throw together any flavor smoothie in minutes at home is to have your freezer stocked with fruit. That doesn’t have to mean buying frozen fruit at the store. Whenever we have a few berries that are at the end of their life, or bananas that are over ripe, I add them to a bag in the freezer.
So when I make a smoothie and need half a banana, I can just go in there grab a frozen half and I am all set to go. Or I have a handful of mixed berries I can add. Works well with greens too! Have a little bit of fresh spinach left? Add it to the bag. Then just bring it out when you make your next smoothie.
What’s In a Mango Smoothie
- Flax Meal (optional, but I add it to almost all my smoothies for a little more fiber and omega 3s)
How Do You Make a Mango Smoothie
- If you are using frozen fruit you will not need to add ice. If you are using fresh fruit, add 1 cup of ice to the blender as well.
- Add everything to a blender and process until smooth.
- Pour into a glass and enjoy!
What Fruits Blend Well With Mango
Here I used banana and they work really well together. But you could also throw in strawberries or raspberries, an orange works really well or even coconut blends well with mango.
This mango smoothie recipe is so simple with just 5 ingredients. You will notice that there is not any sweetener added or fruit juice used. I find that if you use fruit that is super ripe, you don’t need to add these. But if your fruit is not very ripe you can add a little bit of honey to taste, or use a little apple juice in place of the milk.
What Kind of Yogurt Is Good for Smoothies
I like to use Greek yogurt. You can use vanilla or plain, the vanilla is slightly sweetened so just be aware of that. But I think Greek yogurt is super thick and creamy it gives smoothies a nice texture. Plus it has protein, so the smoothie will fill you up for longer.
If you are looking for ways to mix up breakfast or even a filling snack, this mango smoothie recipe is perfect! It is ready in 5 minutes and such a refreshing and delicious option.
