Mango Carrot Smoothie

This delicious, vibrant Mango Carrot Smoothie is packed with nutrition and ready in minutes. Just 4 ingredients and so easy!

Shortly after I got my Blendtec blender, I was paging through the accompanying cookbook and saw a recipe for carrot juice. How bad could it be, right? It’s just carrots and water.

Guess what it tasted like? Carrots and water. Yeah. Shocking, I know. But not nearly as tasty as I thought it would be.

So it got me thinking, was there a way to drink carrot juice that wasn’t quite so, well, that?

Can you put carrots in a smoothie?

Of course! I use 1 cup frozen carrots in this smoothie, but you can also substitute 1 cup of fresh, shredded carrots.

And then I was also thinking about how sometimes unripened mangos taste like carrots. And so maybe they belong together.

And wouldn’t a bright orange smoothie be so pretty? Because all my other smoothies are pink and green, or pink and green. I needed something orange in the mix.

    I do raw shredded carrots and they blend so well!5 stars

    1. Tanesha

      Hey! Thanks for that. I wondered if it would work!

    2. meggan

      Such a great tip Taylor, thank you! I’ve been meaning to try out other options in case somebody doesn’t want to do the frozen carrots. I really appreciate you! Thanks again and take care.

    Hi Megan,
    How far in advance can I make this smoothie? How many days does list last refrigerated?5 stars

    1. meggan

      Hi Katrina, if I were going to make them in advance, I’d keep them in the freezer and pull one out the night before to defrost. Having said that, for food safety purposes you’ll be good making them 4 days in advance and keeping them in the fridge. Some separation may occur, so just shake vigorously to recombine! Thanks, I hope this helps!

    This is delicious!  I partially thawed the mango but it was still frozen enough to act like ice.  I used a fresh, raw carrot and had no problems with it blending.  Also added a little yogurt for protein.  I gave some to my three-year-old too…he’s not a fan of carrots but he’ll definitely drink them!  Thanks!5 stars

    1. meggan

      These are great tips! Especially adding the yogurt, that makes it a lot more filling. Great idea. I love how you can trick kids into drinking veggies! ;) Thank you!

  9. Have you tried steaming the carrots first? I used to make my baby food by steaming and sticking in ice cubes. Either that or maybe just juicing and making ice cubes as well? I’m going to try. But then again I actually enjoy carrot juice so I might not have the right results, lol. 

    1. meggan

      Hey Melissa! I haven’t tried steaming the carrots. Or making carrot juice. I was going for something quick and easy… LOL! Sounds like a great idea though! And kudos to you for making baby food. I tried that for about… one day. :) Thank you!

  10. Melissa

    Do you buy frozen cooked or raw carrots for this mango carrot smoothie? Please clarify. Also, just wondering if the carrots should be put in first and pureed a bit before adding the other ingredients. Maybe less likely to have pieces of carrot? I will try it.

    1. meggan

      Hi Melissa, I used frozen carrots, the idea being convenience. You could try blending them up first, that might help. I was thinking it might help to thaw them, like the mango, but if I did that then we’d have to add ice. It’s worth playing around with. If you try it, I hope you love it! Thanks for your comment.

    Delicious!  In fact, all of your smoothies have me wanting a tall glass!  I will probably add some dairy free protein powder to hold me over until dinner!
    Thanks for sharing!5 stars

    Would it be easier to just shred your carrots and then freeze then? It seems it would blend easier? I am very new to all the smoothies blending, so i really don’t know. I have been trying out all of your smoothies though, and i’m anxious to try this one! I’ll let you know how it goes for me. Lol Thank you for posting all these fabulous and delicious smoothie recipes! =)  I am on a roll to getting fit and being healthy! 

    P.S. I use my coffee bean grinder for my flax seeds. ;) Works like a charm! 

    1. meggan

      Hi Kandie, I’m so happy to hear you are trying some of my smoothies! That’s so lovely to hear. Back to the carrots, I do wonder if shredding them would work better. Thing is, though, personally I would probably never spend the time to shred carrots. I might buy shredded carrots though! Ha ha! And thanks for the tip on the coffee grinder. I have one of those too but normally just use it for spices. Great idea!

    Great combo!5 stars

  14. This sounds much better than just carrots and water. I’ve seen that juice recipe in the blender book and am glad didn’t try it! This smoothie is on my list now :) Will make it in the afternoon :)

  15. Another wonderful spring drink you got here Meggan. I love mango so much and I will definitely try this smoothie. :)

  16. Kathleen @ hapanom

    Mango is one of my favorite fruits! When it’s in season, I can’t get enough! This smoothie sounds perfect for the morning!

    1. meggan

      Thank you, Kathleen! I love mangos too, so does my toddler! We eat them all the time, smoothies or otherwise. :)

    I still haven’t bought a Blendtec yet. I think I must be waiting for my Breville to burn up, which is any day now. Why do I never think of adding veggie to my smoothies? Carrots are going in the next one, this sounds delish.5 stars

    1. meggan

      If the Breville happens to fall out of an 8th-story window, I promise not to say anything. ;) But seriously can you see how obsessed I am with my Blendtec? Yep. I am always stuffing veggies in there as a means of coercing Calvin (or Jim) into vegetable-eating. Sneaky. Can’t be trusted. :)
