About These Recipes

Fresh and fruity mango smoothie drinks can be prepared several different ways, depending on what you’ve got in the pantry and are craving taste-wise.

All of these healthy variations of mango smoothies are filling and can be enjoyed as a snack between meals, or even for a light breakfast or brunch.

Use ripe mangoes that are sweet and non-fibrous. I always prefer the Indian variety of alphonso or kesar mangoes to make blended mango drinks. Gently squeeze the mango to make sure it is slightly soft and ripened. Mangoes that are too firm tend to not be as sweet.

Find below 5 unique recipes to make healthy Mango Smoothie. Take your pick depending on the ingredients you have and enjoy the smoothie heaven. Note that all these variations are easily scalable and you can make a large batch if you prefer.

Step-by-Step Guide

How to Make Mango Smoothie

The Mango smoothie made with yogurt is similar to Mango Lassi. It’s rich and creamy thanks to the yogurt. I use ground cinnamon powder in this recipe, but feel free to add ground cardamom or vanilla extract for even more flavor.

I use honey as a sweetener in the yogurt based mango smoothie. Other better/healthier sweeteners include unrefined sugar, jaggery or palm jaggery, maple syrup, or coconut sugar. However, if the mangoes are very sweet then skip adding any sweetener.

1. First, rinse and peel 2 small to medium alphonso or kesar mangoes. Chop the mango flesh into small cubes. You will need 1.5 cups of chopped alphonso mangoes cubes total. Add the chopped cubes to a blender or mixer jar.

2. Add 1 cup of fresh curd (yogurt). Also add 3 tablespoons honey or if needed, as mentioned above.

3. Sprinkle ⅛ teaspoon of ground cinnamon powder, roughly 2 or 3 pinches, into the blender jar.

4. Blend to a smooth consistency.

5. Serve each mango smoothie in a tall glass. You can even chill the smoothie in the fridge for a few hours and then serve later. But I do recommend that you enjoy within the same day that it is prepared.

Mango Oats Smoothie

This is a very healthy drink and a 3 ingredient recipe made with oats, mangoes and water.

You can have the smoothie as-is in a glass, or make a smoothie bowl and top it with your favorite fruits, nuts and seeds. The recipe serves one and you can easily increase the proportions.

Note that I have not added any sweetener in the smoothie. If you want, you can add 1 or 2 tablespoons of your preferred sweetener.

1. To make the healthy mango smoothie with oats, you first need to soak ⅓ cup quick cooking oats or rolled oats in ½ to ¾ cup of water. Mix well. Cover the bowl and keep in the fridge overnight.

2. When ready to prepare the smoothie, peel and chop 1 large mango into cubes. Add the mango cubes to a blender.

3. Drain the water and add the soaked oats.

4. Blend until smooth. This smoothie is rather thick: If you prefer a slightly medium or thinner consistency, you can add some more water or preferred choice of nut milk while blending.

Start with just ¼ cup of your preferred liquid, splashing a bit more in as you blend until the desired thickness is reached.

5. Pour in a glass or bowl. Top with chopped dry fruits, seeds, or fresh berries. For some crunch I like to sprinkle on a tablespoon of chia seeds.

Serve the mango oats smoothie as-is, or chill for at least 30 minutes to a few hours in the fridge before enjoying.

With Banana & Papaya

This smoothie has the goodness of all three favorite tropical fruits in a glass. There is no need to add sugar or any other sweetener to this naturally sweet and healthy mango smoothie recipe.

  1. Add 2 cups of chopped papaya cubes (about ½ of a medium sized papaya), 2 cups of chopped mangoes, and 1 cup of chopped banana to a blender.
  2. Blend until smooth. To thin the smoothie, add a few splashes of your preferred nut milk. Make a thicker fruit smoothie by blending with a few ice cubes.
  3. Pour in glasses and serve right away. Because of the banana this smoothie tastes best when enjoyed soon after preparing.

With Almonds

This is again a super duper easy and healthy mango smoothie recipe. Simply blend mangoes with chopped almonds and some sweetener (if needed).

To make it thinner you can add cold water while blending. I have also added crushed green cardamom seeds to the smoothie to make it more fragrant and cooling.

  1. Add 2 cups of chopped mangoes, 15 to 18 almonds – roughly ½ a cup, and ¼ teaspoon of crushed cardamom seeds and ice cubes (optional) in a blender. Plus add your preferred sweetener, if necessary.
  2. Blend until smooth. You can add more ice cubes for a thicker smoothie.
  3. Pour the smoothie in long glasses or mugs. Garnish with some more chopped mango and fresh mint leaves before serving.

With Banana & Figs

This mango smoothie made with banana and dried figs is a sweet and crunchy vegan recipe that has lots of bright tropical flavor.

There is no sugar added in this filling smoothie. The mangoes, bananas, and figs have plenty of natural sugar on their own.

Not only are the figs very sweet, their seeds have a great texture that add a wonderful bit of crunch to every sip. If the dried figs are too hard or dense, soak them in warm or hot water for 1 hour before blending.

TIP: I have used cashew milk for this vegan smoothie. However you can use almond milk, lite coconut milk, or even dairy milk.

  1. Add 1 cup of chopped mango (about 1 large mango), 1 cup of chopped banana (1 large or 2 small bananas), 8 to 10 dried figs, and ½ cup of almond milk or cashew milk or lite coconut milk to a blender.
  2. Blend until smooth. Thin the smoothie out if you like by adding a splash more of your preferred plant-based or dairy milk. Thicken the drink by blending in a handful of ice cubes.
  3. Pour in tall glasses and serve immediately.

Serving Suggestions

Whichever mango smoothie you makes serve them straightaway as they taste best when fresh. You can choose to drink the smoothie from a glass, or prepare a smoothie bowl and top it with your favorite fruits, nuts and seeds.

Leftovers

Usually you won’t get any smoothie leftovers, but if you have any leftover, then refrigerate it for a few hours to drink it later. You have an option of freezing the smoothie in popsicle moulds or ice trays and enjoy later as a frozen mango dessert.

Expert Tips

  • Mangoes: Include mangoes that are ripe and sweet. Do not mix sour tasting mangoes with dairy products like yogurt and milk. This causes indigestion and bloating.
  • Sweeteners: Feel free to omit or add your preferred sweeteners in any of the mango smoothie recipes.
  • Toppings: These smoothies can be topped with any of your favorite toppings. Chopped nuts, berries, ice cream, edible seeds (chia, sesame, sunflower, pumpkin), chocolate shavings or a sweet syrup are some of the options.
  • Fruits and dairy: Avoid mixing dairy products with fruits like papaya and banana. Ripe and sweet flesh of mango is compatible with dairy. But other fruits, especially citrus fruits are not compatible and will cause indigestion. So do not mix orange juice, lemon juice or any other acidic fruits or juices with dairy milk or yogurt.
  • Liquids: Smoothie usually have a medium-thick to medium consistency. If you prefer a consistency which is runny and less thick, add water or your choice of nut milk. Take care not to make it so thin, that the flavors get diluted.
  • Scaling: Any of these mango smoothie recipes can be doubled or tripled to make a large batch.
