Mango Smoothie

This ultra creamy mango smoothie is the best summertime smoothie recipe. It’s made with fresh mango and a handful of ingredients for the ultimate thirst quencher.

I’m a massive mango lover. And when it’s mango season I always grab several fresh mangoes at the market to whip up a variety of recipes. But there’s no recipe easier than this mango smoothie. It takes just three minutes to make and it tastes amazing.

What’s In This Mango Smoothie?

I’m keeping this recipe as simple as possible to really let that sweet mango flavor shine. Here’s what you’ll need.

  • Mangoes: I love to use fresh mangoes for this smoothie, but you can also use frozen. Just keep on reading to see a few notes I have on both.
  • Banana: If you can freeze your banana ahead of time, that would be great! This will help to add a chilled, creamy texture. But if not, you can also use fresh.
  • Milk: Any dairy or non-dairy milk will work with this smoothie, including my almond milk, cashew milk, or oat milk recipes!
  • Yogurt: Ideally, greek yogurt would be the perfect option to make this a thicker, creamier smoothie. But you can use any plain dairy or non-dairy yogurt.

Should You Use Fresh Mango or Frozen Mango?

I’m a fan of seasonal eating so if mangoes are in season I’ll use fresh mangoes for this smoothie recipe. You can cube the mango or use a glass to remove the mango from the skin (so easy).

If you use fresh mango then make sure you’re using a frozen banana in the recipe to keep the smoothie nice and thick and cold.

But if fresh mangoes aren’t available or in season, then absolutely use frozen mango. If you use frozen mango, you can use a fresh banana. In other words, just make sure at least the mango or the banana is frozen.

How To Make A Mango Smoothie

Like any other smoothie recipe, all you need to do is toss all the ingredients into a blender and blend away! Just note that if you’re using frozen mango, you may need to use your tamper to push down the mixture so it’s evenly blended.

Pour your mango smoothie into a jar, pop in a straw and slurp up this creamy, sweet, delicious smoothie (and try not to get brain freeze).

How Many Mangoes to Make One Cup?

An average 12-ounce mango will provide approximately one cup of cubed fruit. If you’re using frozen mango for this recipe, you’ll use two cups of frozen cubed mango.

Can you Make this Mango Smoothie Vegan or Dairy-Free?

Absolutely! You can make this mango smoothie with or without dairy milk. And if you’d like homemade recipe options for some of the ingredients, check out my cashew milk, almond milk, or oat milk. I also have homemade yogurt or  homemade coconut yogurt (dairy-free).

You could also use store-bought dairy-free milk and dairy-free yogurt. Or you could use full-fat greek yogurt for an ultra-thick consistency. It’s entirely up to you.

  1. Delisus so creamy and smooth, used frozen mango but let it defrost before blending5 stars

  2. Wow! This is definitely a keeper, my family LOVED it.
    I used fresh banana, frozen mango, Greek yoghurt, milk and honey then topped the smoothie with toasted coconut flakes. Delicious! 5 stars

  3. Great recipe! Some mangoes might be bigger than others, so I suggest adding some more milk if your smoothie looks more like….. a puree.4 stars

  4. Easy to make and deliciously refreshing!! Very good! 😋

  5. Surprisingly so good for such an easy recipe with so few ingredients!!! And so creamy, almost like frozen yogurt 🤤 My poor little Nutribullet could not handle the lack of liquid (I used frozen mango) so I really think I could’ve done without the yogurt and just did a cup of milk. I had to add a few extra splashes of milk to get it to blend. I also added about half a scoop of vanilla flavored protein powder. I always add either that or a splash of vanilla to all my smoothies, adds a nice touch. Two thumbs up 👍🏻 👍🏻 5 stars

  6. Creamy deliciousness. I’m going to make it again tomorrow.5 stars

  7. Whoa! This is so good! This tastes exactly like the juice bar smoothies! So glad I can make one at home. Even gave it my own booster shots of tasteless protein powder and collagen Peptide. I’m going to be addicted to these. The portions were so bang on for the taste and consistency I like.5 stars
