Make a jug of nutritious and delicious Strawberry Mango Smoothie using fresh or frozen ingredients. This tropical flavored strawberry mango smoothie is packed with vitamins, antioxidants, and vitamin C. It’s perfect for breakfast, a quick afternoon snack, or a smoothie to enjoy on a hot summer day!
We love all love smoothies in our family, but this Strawberry Mango Smoothie is so special to me. It’s one of my all-time favorite smoothie recipes because it tastes like a vacation in a glass!
Fresh or frozen mango chunks are blended with strawberries, oranges, and plant-based milk for extra creaminess. This smoothie is so simple but will give you that energy boost and great refreshing flavor.
It’s naturally gluten-free, vegan, and absolutely delicious! I’m also including some great tips below on how to thicken smoothies.
Strawberry Mango Smoothie ingredients
This smoothie is quite simple, and uses just 4 ingredients:
Complete list of ingredients and amounts can be found in the recipe card below.
- Strawberries – Use fresh or forzen strawberries. They’re a great source of vitamin C, folate, and manganese. Strawberries are tart, fresh, and will give a gorgeous color to the smoothie.
- Mango – Again, use fresh or frozen mangoes depending on what’s available. Mangoes boosts immunity, and lowers cholesterol. They are naturally sweet, and creamy.
- Orange – An excellent source of vitamin C, and helps balance the flavors in this smoothie. Can be substituted with fresh orange juice if desired.
- Plant-based milk – I like to use chilled almond milk in my smoothies, but feel free to substitute with any milk of choice, coconut water, or just water.
- Frozen vegetable (optional) see notes below.
How to make strawberry mango smoothie
To make this smoothie extra creamy and smooth, you will need a high-speed blender. I love my Vitamix Blender, it isn’t cheap but it’s honestly a great investment. I use it to make smoothies, nut butters, dressings, soups, almond flour, and more!
- Wash and prep the ingredients if using fresh fruit. Peel the orange, and separate the segments. Peel and slice the mango, and hull the strawberries.
- Add everything to a blender, and blend until smooth (about 60 seconds).
- If the smoothie is too thick, add more liquid and blend again.
Place all of the ingredients in a blender, and blitz for 60-120 seconds until it’s smooth.
For a quick protein boost add a scoop of vanilla flavored protein powder to your smoothie! It will thicken your smoothie as well.
Thickening your smoothies
Sometimes our smoothies turn out a little too thin, and I find that annoying. I mean, I love juice, but a smoothie MUST be thick and creamy! Below are a few ideas on how to thicken your smoothies:
- Use Frozen Fruit. This is the best way to thicken a smoothie, buy frozen pre-cut fruits and vegetables for your smoothies. Or freeze your own (I always buy brown bananas on sale and freeze them!). If your smoothie is too thin, add a few chunks of frozen fruit and blend again.
- Add Ice Cubes. If you’re not using frozen fruit, you can add ice cubes and crush them in the blender along with the rest of the ingredients. Or if your smoothie is thinner than what you aimed for, just throw in a few ice cubes and blend again.
- Add Greek Yogurt. Adding Greek yogurt or dairy free yogurt is a great trick to thicken a smoothie and add some extra protein.
- Oatmeal. Adding oatmeal to your smoothie will thicken it up right away, but only do this if you have a high powdered blender. Also check out my Oatmeal Banana Smoothie.
Adding vegetables to your smoothies
For extra fiber and to make a nutrient-dense smoothie, you can sneak in vegetables that you can’t actually taste.
You can add fresh carrot to this smoothie, or go for frozen vegetables like zucchini, cauliflower, or even beets for a super vibrant color!
Want to make a smoothie bowl? It’s simple! Just reduce the amount of liquid to ½ cup and serve in a bowl with your favorite toppings.
Can I store the leftovers in the fridge?
It’s always recommended that you consume a smoothie as soon as you make it. If a smoothie is left for a while, it will oxidize and start losing some of its nutrients and sometimes even color.
If you have leftovers, store them in a glass jar and fill it up till the top to prevent the air from oxidizing the smoothie. Consume within 24 hours. If the smoothie turns brown, don’t drink it.
Freezing: I don’t recommend freezing blended smoothies, but if you accidentally made too much smoothie that you cannot consume within 24 hours, you can pour it in a jar and freeze for up to 3 months. Thaw in the fridge overnight before consuming.
