Do you drink smoothies year round? This refreshing mango smoothie is made with frozen fruit, so you can enjoy it any time of year. If you prefer to use fresh mango, I’ll give you some tips for that below.

Smoothies are a quick and healthy breakfast or snack. I’m always trying new things when it comes to making smoothies and this delicious mango smoothie recipe is a favorite! We make this fruit smoothie often, along with our other favorites, my Banana Smoothie, Blueberry Spinach Smoothie and Oatmeal Breakfast Smoothie.

This mango smoothie has protein and fiber to help fill you up. Pair it with a slice of peanut butter toast for breakfast, or enjoy it as a refreshing afternoon snack.

How to Make the Best Mango Smoothie

The best mango smoothie starts with simple ingredients. Here’s what you’ll need for this recipe, with ideas for substitutions.

Mango Smoothie Ingredients

  • Mango – Frozen mango is one of my favorite smoothie ingredients because it blends up to make an incredibly thick, smooth and creamy smoothie. You can also make this smoothie with fresh mango. You’ll need less liquid for a fresh mango smoothie.
  • Banana – Half of a banana adds sweetness to the smoothie. I recommend using frozen banana, which helps to thicken the smoothie. Quick tip: Peel and quarter extra ripe bananas and then freeze them so they are always ready to use in smoothies.
  • Yogurt – Plain Greek yogurt is one of my favorite smoothie ingredients. It adds protein, flavor and creaminess to smoothie recipes. You can use vanilla yogurt for a sweeter smoothie.
  • Milk – Milk helps the ingredients to blend well. Use your preferred milk or non-diary substitute, such as almond milk. Or use orange juice or a tropical juice instead of milk to make a sweet and refreshing smoothie.
  • Vanilla Extract – A tiny bit of vanilla extract is my secret smoothie ingredient! It brings out the other flavors and adds a touch of sweetness.

To make a mango smoothie, add all of the ingredients to a blender. For a thick smoothie, start by adding less liquid and then add more as needed until your desired consistency is reached. Blend until fully combined and smooth.

Mango Smoothie Recipe Variations

  • To make a dairy-free smoothie, omit the yogurt or use a dairy-free yogurt. Use nondairy milk or juice for the liquid. Orange juice is a good choice, as the citrus complements the mango flavor.
  • Try adding other fruits to this smoothie. Add one cup of fresh or frozen pineapple, peaches, strawberries or oranges. If you have a high powered blender, try adding a chopped carrot to the smoothie. The carrot will add sweetness. If you add extra frozen fruit to the smoothie, you may need more liquid to thin the smoothie.
  • For a mango smoothie with no banana, you can leave out the banana. Substitute other fruits if desired.
  • To make a mango smoothie with spinach, add one cup of loosely packed fresh spinach leaves to the blender. Blend until smooth. The spinach will give your smoothie a green color, but it won’t make your smoothie taste like spinach.
  • This smoothie is slightly sweet. To make a sweeter smoothie, blend in a teaspoon or two of honey or pure maple syrup. Or use juice instead of milk for the liquid, or vanilla yogurt instead of plain yogurt.
