10 Mango Fruit Smoothies to Try This Summer

by

Fruit smoothies are an excellent way to get your five a day quickly and easily. They require little effort to make or drink. They can also give you plenty of nutritional benefits since your body finds it easier to absorb the nutrients in liquid form. There’s no need to wait for the food to be broken down and digested first.

When it comes to summer, you want something refreshing and mouth-watering. Mangoes are perfect for this need. They offer a tropical taste and work with so many other fruits and vegetables.

Here’s a look at 10 mango fruit smoothie recipes you need to try this summer.

Start with the Basic Mango Smoothie

Let’s not get adventurous for your first mango fruit smoothie. You may be new to the whole smoothie making world, so you don’t want to add too many flavors together. Too many fruits mixed together can become overpowering. You end up with colors blending in a way that just doesn’t look appetizing and scents that you’re not entirely sure about.

Getting your first mango smoothie wrong will turn you off for good. We don’t want that, do we?

So, that’s why we share this basic mango smoothie. You’ll keep the costs down and find it’s much quicker and easier to make. This recipe is best with fresh and ripe mango, but you can use frozen if you’d like. One of the benefits of using frozen fruit is you don’t need any ice. You’ll instantly get the coolness you need for the summer months.

As for ice, your blender may not be able to take it. You’ll need strong blades. Considering the make and model you have and check online if you need advice on the best type of blender for your icy smoothie.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup of mango, chopped
  • ½ cup of milk (a milk alternative is good)
  • ½ cup of ice (if your blender can take it)
  • ¼ cup of plain yogurt (an alternative is okay)
  • 2tbsp honey

Method:

  • Put all the ingredients into the blender, adding the liquid and soft ones first to make it easier to puree
  • Blend until completely smooth

If your blender can’t take the ice, consider making it without and adding full cubes to your smoothie afterward to make it ice cold for the hot summer.

Mango and Pineapple Smoothie

Mangoes are a tropical fruit, so when you start adding in other fruits, you want to follow the same type of tastes and scents. Of course, one of the first that will come to mind is pineapple. The two fruits are excellent together. The benefit of pineapples is that you get plenty of juice, making it easier to cut back on milk and getting a good blend.

Like with the option above, you can use frozen fruits if you’d like. You may find your grocery store even sells bags of pineapple and mango together in the freezer section!

This recipe calls for pineapple juice, but you can use a cup of fresh pineapple instead of it. You’ll need to add a little water or extra milk to make up for some of the missing juice.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup of pineapple juice
  • 1 mango, chopped
  • 1 cup of vanilla yogurt
  • ½ banana, chopped
  • ½ cup of milk of choice
  • 2tbsp cream of coconut

Method:

  • Blend everything together until it is completely smooth

The banana is an important part of the recipe. It helps to add a creamy texture and means you don’t need full-fat milk to make this smoothie taste amazing.

Mango and Peach Smoothies

This is your next very simple recipe to follow. Again, feel free to use frozen fruits if you’d like. This tends to work better with fresh, though, especially if you can find juicy peaches to work into your recipe.

If you want to avoid all milk and alternatives, you can use water or more orange juice. I’d suggest adding a banana for the creamier texture if you do this.

Ingredients:

  • 1 peach, chopped
  • 1 mango, chopped
  • ½ cup of orange juice
  • ½ cup of vanilla milk alternative

Method:

  • Place everything into a blender and combine until smooth

You may find that putting the peach and orange juice/milk into the blender first is better to avoid sticking within the blades. Then you can add in the mango.

Super Easy Mango and Banana Smoothie

While many of the other recipes have called for bananas, this smoothie recipe is specifically for the two tropical fruits together. You don’t need any other fruits to add to this mixture. You’ll get two servings out of this, compared to the one out of most other recipes. Store the second serving in the fridge or half the recipe if you desire.

Ingredients:

  • 2 mangoes, chopped
  • 2 bananas, chopped
  • 2 cups of yogurt, vanilla flavored is good
  • 2 cups of milk of choice
  • 2tsp vanilla extract (optional)

Method:

  • Blend everything together until it’s all smooth

If you want to add a little extra protein, you can add some vanilla flavored protein powder. Whey protein is good for those who aren’t bothered about animal products or dairy. Soy protein has no dairy or animal products in it. You can use 1tbsp instead of the vanilla extract. There’s no need to worry about the taste of the powder, as it all blends in with the taste of the fruit.

Delicious Tropical Fruit Smoothies

Now it’s time to get the taste of the Caribbean in your home. You can do that by mixing a range of tropical fruits together. Now we start to get a little more adventurous from this point. Don’t worry, though. These recipes aren’t hard to follow.

If you’re worried about the cost, buying frozen is usually much cheaper. You’ll get a larger packet, and they will last much longer. You don’t need to worry about having fruit smoothies daily!

This is an excellent way to get all five portions of fruit in just one sitting.

Ingredients:

  • 1 mango, chopped
  • 1 papaya, chopped
  • ½ cup of strawberries halved
  • 1 banana, chopped
  • 1/3 cup of orange juice
  • 5 ice cubes (if your blender will take it)

Method:

  • Place everything in your blender and pulse until it’s all smooth and creamy

You can omit the banana if you want, but you may want to add a splash of milk or some yogurt. The fruit and orange juice alone won’t be as creamy as many people like their smoothies.

This is one of those summery recipes that you can freeze in lolly pop molds with some sticks. Create your own smoothie ice pops to eat on a hot day!

Pina Colada Smoothie with Mango

What about a pina colada? Okay, so we’re not talking about adding alcohol – although you can if you wish. This is a virgin pina colada, bringing the taste of a vacation to your home. Just imagine sitting on your balcony or your porch with one of these in your hand, watching the world go by.

This isn’t the most diet friendly. Every occasionally, it’s not going to do your waistline that much hassle. Think of it as your Sunday treat.

Ingredients:

  • 1 mango, chopped
  • 1 ¼ cups of ice
  • 2tbsp sugar
  • 1 ¼ cups of pineapple juice
  • ½ cup of heavy cream
  • 1 can of coconut milk

Method:

  • Put it all into a blender and puree until smooth

You want to use coconut milk and no other alternative if you can for this. This is the part that helps to give it the perfect pina colada taste. If you really want to make it alcoholic, add a splash of light rum, and that’s all you need. You can add some rum flavoring instead if you want.

Mango Punch with a Hint of Pawpaw

Pawpaws are also known as papayas. You’ll get them throughout the summer months, but they can often be found in the frozen aisle throughout the year.

This is more of a punch than a smoothie, but something that you want to add to your list of recipes for a hot day.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup of mango, chopped
  • 1 cup of papaya, chopped
  • 1 cup of orange juice
  • ¼ cup of lime juice
  • ¼ cup of sugar
  • 1tsp orange zest
  • 4 cups of water

 

 

Method:

  • Put the fruits into a blender first and puree until smooth; you may need some water
  • Add in the rest of the ingredients and blend together

Rather than using ice in the smoothie, this is best served with some crushed ice at the bottom of your glass.

Do note that this has a lot of sugar in it. It’s not the best for your waistline, so do watch out for the amount that you drink in one sitting! It will be tempting to make a lot more!

Mango Lassi

This has a taste of India to it and is popular in that part of the world. You can now bring it to your own backyard with the help of this recipe.

Like the punch above, there is a lot of sugar in this. You’ll want to keep the amount that you drink of it to a minimum.

Ingredients:

  • 2 mangoes, chopped
  • 2 cups of plain yogurt
  • ½ cup of sugar
  • 1 cup of ice

Method:

  • Combine everything in a blender and serve immediately

You’ll get two servings out of this, so share it with a friend. If you’re drinking alone, put the second serving in the fridge for later that day or the next day (you can keep it for 24 hours covered).

Mango Green Smoothie

Green smoothies are extremely nutritious. They are full of iron, calcium, and so much more. You can add plenty of fruits to your green vegetables.

This smoothie will look a little weird because it comes out green, thanks to the green veggies. Don’t worry about that, because it’s completely normal and it tastes amazing. Give it a try for a major nutritional boost this summer.

Ingredients:

  • 2/3 cups of pineapple chunk
  • 1 cup of mango chunks
  • 1 banana, sliced
  • 2/3 cup of spinach
  • 1/3 cup of orange juice
  • 1 cup of ice

Method:

  • Put everything into a blender and puree until smooth

If you want to cut out the orange juice to avoid the sugar, you can use some water or milk (or an alternative). Coconut milk or almond milk tend to work extremely well with this recipe for a non-dairy option.

Mango and Vanilla Smoothie

There will be summer days that are cloudy and miserable. But you want to keep the bright feeling, and you can do that through your smoothies.

This smoothie is nicknamed the “gloomy day smoothie” because of its bright color and tropical taste. It’s perfect throughout the year to make it feel more like summer.

Ingredients:

  • 1 mango, chopped
  • 1 banana, chopped
  • 1 cup of orange juice
  • 1 cup of vanilla yogurt

Method:

  • Add it all to a blender and puree until smooth

This is another recipe that works well with some vanilla protein powder, just to add that little bit of energy. You can also add some chia seeds, sunflower seeds, or even poppy seeds for that little extra boost.

Which Mango Smoothie Will You Try First?

There you have 10 mango fruit smoothies to try out. It’s up to you with where to start. If you’re new to smoothie making, I suggest keeping it simple and just using the one fruit with some milk or yogurt. You can add more as you get more confident and want to try out new tastes. Stick to combinations that have similar tastes, textures, or feels – such as tropical or orange colored fruits.

Bananas are excellent for all smoothies to help reduce the amount of milk and yogurt you use. They add an extra portion of fruit while creating a naturally creamy texture without the addition to your waistline.

Do watch out for a number of smoothies you drink. You only need one mango fruit smoothie a day to make the most of the benefits.
