Easy Mango Smoothie Recipe

What can you do with one mango? If you know how to cut one, slice the mango into chunks and freeze it for this simple smoothie recipe. Or you can do what I did and use store-bought mango sorbet to make this recipe as easy as can be. 

All you will need to make this mango banana smoothie are 4 ingredients that you may already have. This is the perfect breakfast or snack! I love healthy breakfast smoothies, especially if they taste like a milkshake

Ingredients Needed

  • Mango: You’ll want frozen mango chunks. Either purchase frozen or chop up a fresh mango and freeze it for 2 hours.
  • Milk: I replaced dairy milk with my favorite unsweetened almond milk since it gives everything an earthy flavor that I love. You must try these recipes with almond milk to see what I mean by earthy flavor; coffee cake, muffins, pancakes, and cupcakes
  • Banana: one ripe banana for extra sweetness. You can replace the banana with any fruit. I tried this healthy breakfast smoothie recipe with strawberries for a refreshing strawberry mango smoothie. 
  • Honey: to taste. Add more or less of what I did in this recipe.

How to make a mango smoothie

  1. Place frozen mango chunks and one ripe banana in the blender. 
  2. Add some honey to taste and milk to blend.
  3. Blend until you get a smooth and creamy texture. Be sure there are no frozen mango chunks in your smoothie. 
  4. Taste and add more honey as needed for the sweetness desired. 
  5. Pour into glasses and serve. I love to garnish this summer drink with whipped cream and a cherry on top.

Expert Tips

  • You can also use orange juice in place of some of the milk.

  • Add some frozen strawberries for a strawberry mango smoothie. 
  • Swap agave or maple syrup for the honey, or omit it if desired.
  • Add rum to make a boozy smoothie!

  1. The best way to cut a mango is to cut it in half right next to the pit and then cut a grid on it. You can turn it inside out and have mango chunks. I hope this made some sorta sense….

  2. I don’t love mango, but I love the idea of this smoothie! I use almond milk for all my smoothies and it’s fantastic! 

  3. I made an orange Julius at home last month and now you’re really making me want to use up the last mango on my counter with this version! I can just imagine how good it tastes!

  4. You’ve never had mango before?! You poor thing – you’ve been missing out 😉 Guess you better make a few more of these to make up for it! Also, I finally learned how to properly cut a mango a few months ago, so you weren’t alone in that dilemma.

  5. This looks perfect for our super hot Cali weather! Seriously, how is it eleventy-million degrees already!?!?!

  6. This looks so incredible, Dorothy! I am such a big mango fan and seriously can’t wait to try this!  Love the almond milk in here! It sounds so delicious and refreshing! 

  7. Mango anything is my weakness! I used to not be one for smoothies or chilled drinks, but this year I’ve been really into them! Got to give this a try 🙂

  8. I love the combination of mango and banana! This sounds like the perfect summer drink!  I’m going to have to try this. Pinned! 

  9. I modified this slightly to make it healthier. Used frozen Mango chunks, 1/2 cup greek yogurt, 1 frozen banana, almond milk and 6 crushed almonds. Skip the mango ice cream. Too many calories. Delicious!
