5 Strawberry Banana Mango Smoothie Recipes

Strawberry Banana Mango

Mangoes are so good, I usually just eat them straight, by themselves, with a spoon.  I scoop the mango meat out of the mango skin as if I am scooping ice cream out of a container.

But sometimes I like to add a slice of mango to my smoothies, for a little extra flavor.  They go well with banana, and also with other tropical fruits like pineapple or papaya.  They are also a nice thing to add to a basic strawberry smoothie.

I usually use fresh mango in my mango smoothies, but I sometimes buy frozen mango pieces.  They are fairly cheap to buy this way, and they add to the nice texture of the smoothie.  I don’t like to add ice to my smoothies, so I usually add some kind of frozen fruit instead.  Sometimes that frozen fruit is strawberries, blueberries, or a frozen banana, but I also like to use frozen peaces or frozen mango pieces.  Sometimes a bag of mixed fruit slices will also contain some mango.

Fresh mango is my favorite option, but it is not cheap, and sometimes it is hard to find a ripe mango.  A mango should be a little bit soft when you use it.  Allow it to be nicely ripe, before you add it to a smoothie.  The flavor will be more sweet and full that way.  And the mango will be juicier, too.

Strawberry Mango SmoothieThis first recipe is really good.  It is fairly simple, too.  The protein powder is optional; the smoothie tastes great either way.

  1. 1.5 cups unsweetened almond milk
  2. 1 large banana
  3. 8 strawberries
  4. half a fresh mango
  5. 1 scoop protein powder (optional)

Mango SmoothieThe next recipe is super easy.  If you want to make a quick smoothie with only 3 ingredients, and you want the smoothie to be excellent, then try this one.

Super Easy Mango Smoothie

  1. 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
  2. 1 banana
  3. 1 cup frozen mango pieces

Ginger Mango SmoothieThis ginger smoothie is really good.  If you like ginger, you will love this one.  Some ginger smoothie recipes only have half a teaspoon or one teaspoon of ginger in them.  But this one has a full tablespoon.
If you want to be cautious, try just a teaspoon of ginger to start with, then add a second teaspoon after, if you like it.

Strawberry Orange Mango SmoothieStrawberries, oranges, and mangoes all remind me of sunshine.  And they are all supremely healthy and tasty.  Try all three together, in this recipe.

Strawberry Orange Mango Smoothie

  1. 1 cup filtered water
  2. 1 banana
  3. 1 orange
  4. half a mango
  5. 8 strawberries
  6. 1 scoop non-dairy protein powder (optional)

All I can say here is, yumm…

Pineapple Mango Smoothie

Pink Pineapple Mango Smoothie

  1. 1 cup almond milk
  2. half a banana
  3. half a mango
  4. half cup pineapple
  5. half cup strawberries

All the above recipes are based on almond milk, and banana.  But if you want to use rice milk or soy milk, those work well too.  I also like to use hemp milk, sometimes.

Try making your own nut milk; it is really easy.  Just soak a half cup of raw nuts for 8 hours, then add them to the smoothie.  For a little extra flavor, you can add vanilla.  Try doing this with almonds, but don’t stop there.  Try cashews, sesame seeds, sunflower seeds, hemp hearts, and any other kind of nut of seed that you like.  Each one adds a really different flavor and texture.  If you don’t like the seed ‘pulp’, then you can strain it out after you make your milk.
