Recipe Variations

Let’s be honest, this is a pretty basic recipe, but sometimes the best ones are! You can easily adjust this to suit your tastes with additional add ins:

  • If you prefer your smoothie sweeter, add in a little honey, or keep it vegan by using some maple syrup.
  • Swap half the mango for another frozen fruit like strawberries or blueberries.
  • Use a different plant based milk like oat or soy or use dairy milk if you prefer.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can you make it ahead of time?

This mango smoothie is best drunk soon after it is made so it’s nice and icy cold. Once the mango is blended it will become oxidized and start to loose some of it’s nutrients. If you can’t have it straight away, cover it with some plastic wrap and keep it refrigerated for up to 24 hours.

Can you use fresh mango?

It’s best to use frozen mango to help the smoothie get nice and thick as well as making it nice and cold. It also makes it super quick to prep and make. If you have a fresh mango to use up, just add in some ice cubes and reduce the amount of milk a little. Alternatively you can pour it over ice to serve.

Recipe Notes and Tips

  • The best smoothies are made in a high speed blender. If you don’t have a high speed one, just scrape down the sides between blends and blend for a little bit longer to make sure there are no chunks.
  • Taste the smoothie before you drink it and add sweetener if you prefer.
  • This makes enough for one pretty large smoothie. It will easily make two smaller ones and you can half or double the recipe as needed.
