A tasty and refreshing way to start your day off right, this recipe is made with only five ingredients and can be whipped together in just a few minutes.
Feel free to replace the mango with any one of your favorite tropical fruits such as pineapple, banana, or papaya. Or go crazy and mix them all into one! Either way, you’ll be daydreaming your way into the tropics!
What do you put in a mango smoothie?
The tropical mango smoothie is made with only five ingredients that you probably already have in your pantry – mango, milk (or dairy free milk), ice cubes, yogurt, and honey or agave syrup.
How do you make a healthy mango smoothie?
As this recipe is already healthy to begin with, just whipping it up in your blender is enough for a healthy breakfast or afternoon pick-me-up.
If you’d really like to up the protein content and thicken the texture, replace the regular yogurt with Greek yogurt.
Another trick – adding up to ¼ cup of rolled oats to the mix will add a boost of good-for-you fiber and nutrients, and make a thicker consistency, if that’s what you’re looking for!
How do you make a mango smoothie without milk?
Simply replace the milk with an equal amount of water, coconut water, or dairy-free milk such as almond, coconut, or cashew. Just keep in mind each variation will have a different flavor depending on your liquid of choice.
If you want to take out the liquid all together, replace it with one medium banana, which will add a creamy texture (and leads us to our next question)!
What other fruit goes well with mango?
Mango, with its sweet and sour flavor, pairs perfectly with any other fruit in the tropical fruit family such as pineapple, banana, 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.
