What you need for a sweet mango smoothie
Mango smoothie is simple on the ingredients and so easy to make! For all dimensions of the ingredients, see the recipe card below.
- Frozen Mango: Look for frozen mango near the frozen fruit.
- Frozen banana: Freeze your own bananas and always have them to hand.
- Mango juice: If you can’t find mango juice in your juice aisle, check the chilled juice and even the frozen juice.
- honey: This adds a nice natural sweetness that goes perfectly with the mango.
- ice: This will help make it good and cold, and also thicken it.
How to make your smoothie with fresh fruit

How to cut a mango
There are two foolproof ways to slice a mango. Use both to get the most out of your mangoes. This mango smoothie recipe goes great with fresh mangoes, so grab them and use them while you can.
- Knife: You begin by cutting off the mango “cheeks” or curved sides from the pit that runs down the center. The pit is big and shallow so you know when you hit it. Try to get as close to the pit as possible. Once you have the two sides cut off, hold the mango in the palm of your hand or on a cutting board. Cut the mango lengthways and then again vertically into cubes without cutting through the skin. Gently press the skin to turn the fruit over and cut the cubes from the skin. Repeat with the other half. Cut the rest of the peel from the seed and cut off as much of the remaining fruit from the seed as possible.
- Glass: Again, start cutting off the curved portions of the mango so you have two halves. Use a large sturdy glass to place the edge of the fruit against the edge of the glass. Use some pressure to press the mango down the side of the glass to peel it. In the end, you should have a large piece of skin in your hand and a large piece of fruit in your glass. Dice the fruit or leave it whole to add to your smoothie.
Tips and variations for your mango smoothie
The possibilities are endless! Try these tips and variations for the best mango smoothie you’ve ever had!
- Mango: You can use fresh or frozen for this recipe and both are fantastic. If you use frozen, you can make a mango smoothie all year round!
- Juice exchange: If you can’t find mango juice, you can replace it with orange or pineapple juice instead. If you want to add dairy products, you can also use milk, almond milk, or any other milk of your choice instead.
- Honey: If you find your mango and bananas sweet enough, you can leave out the honey altogether. Instead of honey or any other sweetener of your choice, you can also use sugar or maple syrup.
- Bananas: I constantly freeze overripe bananas by peeling them and freezing them in a zippered freezer bag. Perfect when I need bananas for smoothies or even banana bread!
- Add-ins: You can make this smoothie your own by adding all sorts of ingredients. Add a heaping spoonful of yogurt for a milk rush. Add protein powder or nut butter to fortify the protein. Add frozen pineapple, strawberries, or raspberries for a delicious touch. You can also add spinach, chia seeds, or flaxseed flour for a nutritional boost.
