This Healthy Mango Smoothie takes just minutes to make and is a fresh, delicious way to start your day. It’s a nutritious, low calorie treat!
We’re in the midst of a gorgeous summer here in Oregon. It’s these crystal clear, blue sky mornings that I wake up finding myself craving a fresh, creamy smoothie. My blender has been getting heavy use over the past couple of weeks.
Frozen chunks of naturally sweet mango and banana combined with a little plain Greek yogurt and a coconut nut/almond milk blend create this Healthy Mango Smoothie. With less than 130 calories per serving and a good amount of vitamins A, C, and potassium, it is a truly nutritious, delicious treat.
- Frozen mango – You can flash freeze fresh mango chunks or be lazy like me and pick up a bag of frozen mango chunks at the grocery store. Using frozen mango ensures a nice, thick consistency.
- Banana – Fresh is fine but for a creamier consistency, use frozen banana. Pop a few in the freezer so you’ll always have them on hand when a smoothie craving strikes.
- Coconut/Almond Milk – Unsweetened coconut milk adds a nice tropical hint of coconut that I really love but almond milk is a great choice too. I like to use a coconut milk/almond milk blend for the best of both worlds. Just be sure whatever you choose is unsweetened.
- Plain Greek yogurt – Either full fat, 2%, or nonfat is great. Go with what works best for you.
- Orange juice – Fresh squeezed or read the label and be sure you are using 100% juice with no sugar added.
- Honey – Mango is naturally sweet so you only need a very small amount of honey to sweeten this smoothie. From time to time I will substitute agave syrup.
- Pure vanilla extract – Just a touch of vanilla adds a nice warm flavor.
How to Make Healthy Mango Smoothies
- Add all the ingredients to a blender and process until smooth. Add additional coconut/almond milk as needed to reach the desired consistency. It helps immensely if you use a high powered blender like a Nutri Ninja (which I own and love!).
- Divide between four 8-ounce cups. Top with a few pieces of mango for a nice and yummy effect.
A gorgeous burst of sunshine in a glass on a warm summer day!
