I love the tropical combination of mango and banana, and it brings a lot of sweetness to this smoothie. But, depending on how ripe your fruits are, you may need a touch of honey, too. Or, replace the water or milk with orange juice, and your smoothie will be plenty sweet.

For extra fiber, add some flax seeds or chia seeds or even a handful of greens. They will all change the color, but the taste will still be delicious.

At a Glance: Here is a quick snapshot of what ingredients are in this recipe.
Please see the recipe card below for specific quantities.

Ingredient notes

  • Mango: To substitute fresh mango (peeled and chopped), add ½ cup ice to the blender. Similar to an avocado or a peach, a ripe mango will give slightly when you squeeze it. It should smell fruity at the stem when ripe, too.
  • Protein powder: You can use either Greek yogurt or protein powder in this smoothie. Protein powder is never a one-size-fits-all solution, but I wrote extensively about the Best Protein Powders for Smoothies because it’s something I care about. If you don’t currently have a favorite, you might be able to find one in the list.
  • Honey: Taste the smoothie before adding any sweeteners, then start with a teaspoon of honey or maple syrup. If you use a vanilla-flavored protein powder, you probably won’t need anything.

Step-by-step instructions

  1. In the bottom of a blender, add water, banana, mango, and protein powder or Greek yogurt.

Recipe FAQs

What fruit mixes well with mango?

Mango, with its sweet and sour flavor, pairs perfectly with any other fruit in the tropical fruit family such as pineapple, peach, or papaya. Replace up to half the mango with any one of these fruits, or put together a cup’s worth of any of your favorite fruit combination.

Are mango smoothies good for you?

Mango smoothies that have a balanced nutritional profile, including protein, fiber, and healthy fats, can be an excellent, healthy choice for a meal. However, stay away from “sugar bomb” smoothies that have nothing but fruit or juices in them. They are likely to tank your blood sugar, make you tired, and lead to cravings.
