This mango berry smoothie is a sweet and refreshing combo of mangoes, blueberries, and strawberries. It’s refined-sugar-free and makes a nutritious snack or breakfast!
Why you’ll love it:
This mango berry smoothie is super delish! Mangoes are naturally sweet with 14 grams of natural sugar per 100 grams. This makes them a great way to naturally sweeten smoothies with NO refined or added sugar. Always a win!
Typically mangoes are paired with tropical fruits like pineapple, but they taste surprisingly good with berries too! Try this mango strawberry blueberry smoothie as an afternoon pick-me-up or super quick breakfast. It’s tasty AND it’s nutritious.
You only need six ingredients for this mango berry smoothie!
Banana – Bananas are a go-to for me ingredient wise. They’re ultra creamy, naturally sweet, and super cheap! Be sure to use a ripe banana for the best results.
Berries – I used blueberries and strawberries in this one because it’s what I had on hand. If you have mixed berries, that should work just fine. The flavor may be different, but it will still taste delicious!
Mango – I love love LOVE mangoes! I always keep mango chunks in the freezer. They’re higher than berries in natural sugar which makes them a great way to sweeten a smoothie, without the need for juice or added sweeteners.
Greek yogurt – For a creamier blend and a boost of protein! I always use unsweetened plain Greek yogurt.
Almond milk – Almond milk is my favorite liquid base, but any plant-based milk works great.
Lime – A squeeze of fresh lime adds immune-boosting vitamin C and makes the fruit flavor pop!
How to make a mango berry smoothie:
Smoothies are easy to make and very forgiving! There’s only two steps.
Combine ingredients: In the base of your blender, combine the banana, mango, blueberries, strawberries, Greek yogurt, almond milk, and lime juice.
Blend: Blend until thick and creamy. I like my smoothies on the thicker side. If you prefer it a little thinner, you can add a splash more almond milk and blend again for a few seconds.
Pour into glasses and enjoy! This makes one regular sized smoothie, or two smaller sized glasses.
Smoothie Making Tips:
- If possible, use a high-speed blender. High-speed blenders are more expensive, but worth the investment. They have powerful motors, which give you a super smooth blend.
- If you like a sweeter smoothie, swap half the almond milk with orange juice. Orange juice is a good way to sweeten a smoothie without refined sugar.
- Smoothies are easy to customize! I keep mine fairly thick, but if you like it thinner, simply blend in a splash more liquid at the end.
Technically, you can store smoothies in the refrigerator for up to 24 hours, but I prefer not to. They lose their frosty texture by then and don’t taste as good.
My favorite way to store smoothies is in the form of popsicles! I pour the leftover smoothie into a popsicle mold, add sticks, and freeze them for later. My kiddos LOVE smoothie pops!
Mangoes are naturally sweet and go with most berries. Try them with strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, or even cranberries!
If your goal is a nutritious drink, you should avoid ingredients with refined-sugar. Ice cream, sweetened yogurts, canned fruit in syrup, added sweeteners, and concentrated fruit juice should be avoided.
No! Smoothies don’t need ice if you use frozen fruit. Frozen fruit thickens the smoothie and gives it a frosty texture without the need for ice. Ice can make the texture gritty and melts faster.
