Panera Mango Smoothie Copycat

This smoothie tastes just like Panera’s mango smoothie, only it’s budget-friendly to make! It’s ultra-creamy from the Greek yogurt and refreshingly sweet. Perfect for a filling breakfast or snack.

Why You’ll Love it:

Panera’s smoothies are surprisingly good! Both the strawberry and mango smoothie have lots of Greek yogurt which gives them a unique yogurt-y flavor.

But Panera’s smoothies aren’t cheap! At nearly 7 bucks a pop (and 3 kids), it adds up fast. So I made a copycat version of Panera’s mango smoothie (and their green smoothie).

Whenever I do copycat recipes, I always buy one first so I can compare side-by-side. This smoothie tastes just like the original. Score!

Key Ingredients:

frozen mango, juice, banana, yogurt.
  • Plain Greek yogurt – It’s packed with high-quality protein and no added sugar! It makes this smoothie very creamy. I used Costco’s brand, Kirkland’s nonfat Greek yogurt.
  • Frozen mango – Mango is naturally sweet and packed with immune boosting vitamin C. Be sure to use frozen mango to get a thick shake-like consistency.
  • White grape juice – For a sweet liquid base! This ingredient is very important if you want it to taste like Panera’s version.
  • Stevia – For extra sweetness. I used 1/4 teaspoon of stevia in the raw. Increase the amount for extra sweetness. Or if you prefer not to use stevia, you can swap it with 2 teaspoons of honey.

How to Make Panera’s Mango Smoothie:

This mango smoothie recipe is super duper simple!

  • Combine ingredients: Combine all the ingredients in your blender. It’s easier on the motor if you start with the soft ingredients (i.e. banana and yogurt).
  • Blend: Turn the blender on low speed, then gradually increase the speed to high to reduce stalling. If your blender does stall, turn if off and add a little bit more liquid.
  • Adjust: Taste for sweetness and consistency. If you like it sweeter, add more stevia or honey. If you want it thinner, add a little bit more juice.
  • Serve: Pour into a glass and enjoy right away!

Recipe Tips:

  • Greek yogurt is pretty tangy! If you like a sweeter smoothie, use vanilla Greek yogurt or add more sweetener. Stevia in the raw, honey, or maple syrup all work great.
  • Use frozen mango for a cold, shake-like consistency. Fresh fruit won’t give you the same frosty consistency.

Substitutions & Variations:

Panera bread’s mango smoothie is basic and easy to customize!

  • Protein powder – Add 2 tablespoons of vanilla protein powder for a boost of protein!
  • Hemp hearts – A whole food way to add plant-based protein! Add 1 tablespoon of hemp hearts. It doesn’t add much texture or flavor, just feel-good nutrients.
  • Oats – Add 1/4 cup of rolled oats for a subtle texture and oatmeal flavor.
  • Greens – Add a handful of baby spinach for a boost of micronutrients and iron. Baby greens blend easily.
  • Fruit – Swap the mango with any frozen fruit you have on hand.

Storage Instructions:

A smoothie is BEST right when it’s made! It only takes 2 minutes to make so I highly recommend it fresh.

However you can store it in the fridge for up to 24 hours. Pour it into a thermos or vacuum insulated cup with a lid, then chill.
