Mango Smoothie Recipes

Last Updated on

Mango smoothies are a favorite among smoothie lovers for its versatility and delicious tropical flavor that can be easily mixed with a variety of ingredients for a frosty, smooth, or creamy texture to suit your taste. Not only do they make a great meal replacement, but a mango smoothie also makes for a healthy pick-me-up snack to get you a long afternoon at the office. Mango smoothies are equally as delicious when you simply want a tasty anytime treat!

Mango makes a great addition to a range of smoothies, such as protein smoothies, banana smoothies, strawberry smoothies, and even weight-loss smoothies. Try mixing mango with coconut, pineapple, and other tropical fruits for a mini-escape to the sunny tropics when you need a break from the daily grind, or mix it with Greek yogurt and banana for a protein-rich, ultra creamy smoothie that’s absolutely divine.

It’s not always easy to find the time (or the blender) to whip up your own delicious mango smoothie recipes. When you just want to grab a healthy, filling, yet still so satisfying snack, stop by your local Edible Arrangements® store for a delicious, done-for-you smoothie anytime – on your way to the office in the morning, on your lunch break, or on a lazy weekend afternoon just because. Our Edible® Treats menu includes a variety of delicious smoothies like Strawberry, Pineapple & Banana, tasty Pineapple & Orange, Pineapple, Honeydew & Kale, and so much more.

“This is my favorite Mango Smoothie: 

  • 2 spears fresh mango
  • 2 spears fresh pineapple
  • 2 pods of Green Cardamon
  • 2/3 cup of plain Greek yogurt (organic preferred)
  • handful of ice

“In a blender, put your mango, pineapple and ice. Open cardamon pods and take out the seeds. Smash all the seeds in a mortar and pestle. Add to blender. Blend thoroughly, stopping to push everything down. Add your yogurt and pulse a couple of times. Now it is ready to enjoy. This will be thick, so you might want a straw. If you want it sweet add some honey. I liked it not being sweet.”

“I love mango and try various formations with it. This is one of my favorites:

“1) Take two medium sized mangoes – dice and freeze them for a couple of hours. Even if you don’t freeze them, it is okay. It’s just that the frozen mangoes taste better in the summer.

“2) Half-a cup yogurt. If it is Greek, it is better.

“3) One cup mango nectar. If you don’t have mango nectar, mango juice will do. If you can’t find mango juice either, go with any nectar/juice. The nectar adds a distinct flavor to the drink and makes it more wholesome.

“4) Optional – A bit of lime and mint for garnishing.

“Pull out your blender. Put the diced mango, yogurt, and banana in to it, and blend until it goes completely smooth. Add one or two ice cubes if your mango is not frozen, or a bit of water if you want to reduce the consistency. Add berries or flax seeds if you want.
Serve into your glass – and top it off with mint and lemon.

“On a tiring day in the hot summer, this smoothie takes barely 5 minutes to prepare and will refresh you like anything.”

“My favorite mango smoothie recipe is the Frozen Mango Smoothie With Fresh Berries. This recipe is incredibly simple to prepare and perfect for transitioning into the fall season. It makes for the perfect go-to snack or a light meal, especially for a breakfast option that you can take with you on your way to work if you’re in a rush. Even if you aren’t a huge mango fan, the fresh kick of berries and yogurt base make this smoothie equal parts creamy and delicious. It’s also light and saves on calories by using skim milk and Greek yogurt, although you can experiment on your own and see what best suits your palette.

“Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup skim milk
  • Ice cubes (about 10-12)
  • Pineapple juice (6 ounces)
  • 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 cup frozen mango chunks
  • 1/2 cup fresh raspberries (can be supplemented with blueberries)

“My favorite mango smoothie recipe is:

  • 1 Banana
  • 1 Mango (You can add more to make the mango really pop)
  • 1 Cup Greek Yogurt
  • 1 Cup Milk/Coconut Milk/Nut Milk (Depends on what I’m feeling!)
  • 2 Tbsps Chia Seeds
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1Tbsp Honey/Maple Syrup

“This is a really creamy recipe that I just love. Not only does it taste good but it is good for you and really refreshing. If you want it to be really cold you can add a few ice cubes in to bring the temperature down. Tip: The riper the fruit you use, the sweeter it will be.”

“My favorite mango smoothie recipe is the Tropical Mango Smoothie:

  • 2 fresh mangoes or 2 cups of frozen mangoes – fresh works best!
  • 2 bananas
  • 1/2 cup pineapple juice
  • 1 cup of your favorite plant-based milk
  • 1/2 cup ice if the fruit isn’t frozen
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

“Blend all of the ingredients together and serve with a straw (in a mason jar for an attractive presentation!). Mangoes carry so much natural flavor that there don’t need to be too many more star ingredients in a mango smoothie. Banana adds wonderful mild taste to complement the tropical mango and pineapple juice flavors. This recipe works best with in-season, fresh mangoes.”
