It’s smoothie time, and this refreshing Mango Smoothie is at the top of our list of favorites!

How do you make a Mango Smoothie?
There aren’t a lot of rules when making a smoothie, but there is one that’s important to note!
Always add the softest or liquid ingredients at the bottom of the blender, and work your way up to the firmest or hardest to blend. This will ensure everything plays nice in the blender and you don’t have to stop and stir too many times.
For this Mango Smoothie, we’re using mango juice (sometimes called nectar), Greek yogurt, frozen banana and frozen mango chunks. If your blender is having a hard time getting a smooth consistency, you can open it and add a splash of juice, milk or water.
Optional add ins:
- 1/4-½ cup quick oats
- 2 tablespoons ground flax or wheat bran
- 1 scoop vanilla protein powder
- 1 teaspoon of honey or maple syrup if desired to sweeten
- Other frozen fruits: pineapple, raspberries and strawberries are some of our favorites too add! Just reduce the banana and/or mango, or you’ll need to increase the liquid.
Can I use fresh mango instead of frozen?
If you don’t have any mango pieces frozen, you can use fresh mango.
Your Mango Smoothie won’t have quite as thick a consistency, but you can always add in a few ice cubes to compensate if you desire.
If you do use fresh mango, you may find it is slightly sweeter than frozen.
Can I use fresh banana instead of frozen?
I prefer to use frozen bananas in my smoothies because it adds such a rich and creamy consistency! I always have a big freezer stash for smoothie days (check out my post on How to Freeze Bananas to see how I prep them!).
If you don’t have any frozen bananas, you can skip them or add some in fresh. If you use fresh bananas and find that the smoothie is too warm or too thin for your liking, you can add some ice cubes and blend it again.
What can I swap for Mango Juice?
Mango juice or mango nectar can be hard to find, but I love the extra punch of mango flavor it gives! Look for a no sugar added variety for the healthiest smoothie.
If you can’t find mango juice, you can use almost any kind of juice, but my preferences would be peach, pineapple, apple or orange.
If you prefer not to use juice, you can swap it for milk (dairy or non dairy) or even water, but you may find you want to add honey for added flavor and sweetness.
