Gathering Ingredients for the Smoothie

ingredients to make an orange mango smoothie
  • 1 cup frozen mango chunks
  • ΒΌ cup frozen banana slices
  • Β½ cup orange juice
  • ΒΌ cup orange cream low-fat yogurt (approximately 2 ounces)

Ingredient Tips and Substitutions

  • You can also use fresh mango if preferred, but it will make for a thinner smoothie unless you add additional ice. Make sure to use a ripe mango as well, which should give under pressure from your fingers
  • A fresh half banana can be swapped in for the frozen slices
  • You can use unsweetened or vanilla coconut milk, almond milk, or any other nut milk in place of the orange juice
  • The low-fat yogurt can be swapped for Greek yogurt, or omitted entirely for a dairy free option
  • You can use a fresh, peeled Clementine orange in place of the orange juice if preferred

Orange Mango Smoothie Variations

  • Dairy Free. Omit the yogurt and use a little extra banana or ice as a thickener
  • Pineapple Orange Mango Smoothie. Swap half the mango for frozen pineapple chunks for this variation
  • Blood Orange Mango Smoothie. Use half of a fresh blood orange in place of the orange juice
  • Strawberry Orange Mango Smoothie. Swap half the mango for frozen strawberries for this variation
  • No banana. To create a no banana variation, omit the banana. Use extra yogurt or ice to adjust the thickness of your smoothie to make up for it
  • Citrus Zing. Add juice from 1 lime or Β½ a lemon for a bright citrus zing
  • Sweet. While I don’t think this smoothie needs additional sweetener beyond the fruit, you can sweeten it up with 1 Tbsp honey or agave for a sweeter twist
  • Seeds. Add Β½ – 1 Tbsp of chia or flax seeds for a nutritious additive
  • Greens. Hide a handful of spinach, kale, or avocado in your smoothie to get those hidden veggies and good fats in

Recipe FAQs

Can I Use Frozen Fruit For My Orange Mango Smoothie?

Yes, you can use frozen fruit for your orange mango smoothie, and in fact it is actually recommended. You don’t need to worry about ripeness, and the frozen fruit helps to create a thicker smoothie texture naturally.

Of course, you may also use fresh fruit, but you’ll want to add ice to help thicken the drink.

What Are Some Additional Protein Sources For the Smoothie?

Additional protein sources for this smoothie could be protein powder, with vanilla or orange being the best flavor options to add.

You could also add a nut butter, such as almond, pecan, or walnut, which will compliment the flavors and add protein.

Can I Make This Smoothie Dairy Free or Vegan?

Yes, you can make this smoothie dairy free and vegan. In both cases, simply omit the yogurt.

For additional thickness, add a handful of ice cubes during preparation. Or, for creaminess, add a small amount of unsweetened nut milk, such as almond or coconut.

How Do I Prevent the Smoothie From Being Too Watery?

To prevent the smoothie from being too watery, use frozen fruit or add ice to your mix when blending. You can also add additional banana to help thicken it up.

Generally, you only get a watery smoothie when using ripe fresh fruit with a lot of natural juices.

Can I Use Orange Juice From a Carton Instead of Fresh Oranges?

Yes, you can absolutely use orange juice from a carton instead of fresh oranges. Choose a brand that is as near to 100% juice as possible for best results.

Note that most commercial orange juices also have sugars added in, which will change the sweetness level of your smoothie.

Can I Add Spinach to My Orange Mango Smoothie For Added Nutrients?

Yes, you can definitely add spinach to your orange mango smoothie for nutrients. Use about 1 cup fresh spinach leaves or Β½ cup frozen chopped spinach.

Of course, you can adjust more or less to taste, or if you’re trying to hide it more from your picky eaters.

Do Mango and Orange Go Well Together?

Yes, mango and orange go extremely well together, and their flavors compliment each other perfectly.

Other flavors that go well with both include coconut, vanilla, peach, pineapple, strawberry, and banana.

Recipe Pro Tips

  • Using frozen fruit gives you a chilled and creamy texture with less dilution than ice. Plus, you don’t need to worry about choosing ripe fruit or using it in time
  • You can portion your smoothie ingredients ahead of time into single serve bags and store in the freezer. Then, just grab, blend, and go to save time in the morning
  • This recipe works best in a full sized blender. However, you may also use a food processor, immersion blender, or portable blender if needed (but the texture may change and you may need to do batches)

Storage Tips

  • You may keep any leftover orange mango smoothie in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Add more ice or frozen fruit and re-blend if it gets too watery
  • For longer term storage, measure out the ingredients into freezer bags, store in the freezer for up to 3 months, and blend directly from frozen as desired. For the juice or yogurt, freeze it into ice cube trays for convenience!
