SUBSTITUTIONS FOR MANGO SMOOTHIE
Fruit– Mixing in some pineapple or strawberries would be delicious in this mango smoothie.
Yogurt– Nonfat greek yogurt is a great way to add protein and richness to smoothies for a low amount of calories. You can substitute with dairy free yogurt or full fat yogurt. You can also skip the yogurt, but may need a little bit more milk.
Milk– Any milk will work in this recipe. Almond, Dairy, or other non dairy milks will all work.
Protein Powder– Protein powder isn’t necessary but it is recommended for this recipe. The added protein will help keep you full, rather than this just being blended fruit (sugar and carbs). Any protein powder will work. We like this protein powder best.
Frozen Fruit– You can substitute frozen fruit for fresh fruit. Substitute 1:1. Frozen fruit will result in a thicker smoothie. Fresh fruit will result in a thinner smoothie
Other Add Ins– Feel free to add in other nuts or seeds to this recipe. Chia or flax seeds would make a great addition!
Greens– We love to add a handful of spinach or kale to this recipe. You can’t taste it and it’s delicious
Frozen Cauliflower: Frozen cauliflower is relatively tasteless and helps thicken smoothies. It’s also a great way to add in sneaky veggies. 1/4 cup cauliflower rice will blend nicely in this recipe.
Should You Use Fresh or Frozen Mango?
You can use fresh or frozen mango in a smoothie. Fresh mango will result in a thinner smoothie, while frozen mango will result in a thicker smoothie.
I personally prefer frozen mango. It keeps for much longer and it is often cheaper than buying/cutting fresh mango!
How Do You Thicken a Smoothie?
There are a few ways to thicken a smoothie. Make sure to use frozen fruit and cold ingredients. Ingredients like yogurt can also help to thicken a smoothie.
If your smoothie comes out thin you might have added too much liquid. You can add more frozen fruit to make it thicker.
Mango Smoothie FAQ
To select a ripe mango, look for a mango that is slightly soft to the touch. It should almost feel like you’re pressing into the skin on the palm of your hand. Firm but a little bit of give to it! Make sure it is not too mushy because it could be bad inside.
Yes mangos are very healthy! They’re loaded with vitamins and minerals including potassium and magnesium. Mangos can also help with digestion and are so delicious!
Mango mixes well with pretty much any fruit. We like to mix it with pineapple, strawberry or banana best but it will go well with most fruits.
A mango smoothie is usually thinner and served in a glass with a straw while a mango smoothie bowl is often thicker and served in a bowl with a spoon. You can turn this mango smoothie into a smoothie bowl by cutting back on the amount of liquid you add to it and adding in more frozen fruit.
It’s entirely up to you what liquid you should make your smoothies with. I like to make my smoothies with almond or whole milk. Milk makes smoothies much creamier than water.
Best Blender for Smoothies:
Any blender will work for smoothies.
We also love our Vitamix, but it’s much more expensive. Here’s a link to the one we have.
