Sabrina’s Mango Smoothie Recipe

Smoothie recipes are wonderfully simple. All you need is a blender to mix the fruit, yogurt, and fruit juice into a delicious, creamy drink recipe that’s packed with sweet and tangy flavors. This recipe uses real mango, vanilla yogurt, orange juice, and just a little sugar for the perfect combination of flavor and texture. It’s a refreshing way to get a serving of fruit and stay hydrated. 

A homemade Mango Smoothie can make an addition to a healthy breakfast, a fast lunch or snack, or a sweet treat for the end of the day. There’s basically no time that this frozen drink isn’t delicious, and it’s especially great in the summer when you want something chilled and tropical to get you through a hot day. Making your own Mango Smoothie is faster, cheaper, and tastier than going to a juice or smoothie bar to purchase one. Plus, you can easily make adjustments and mix in additional ingredients to make your own signature Mango Smoothie!

portioned ingredients for mango smoothie


  • 2 cups Frozen Mango Chunks: the frozen fruit gives amazing flavor and texture to your smoothie recipe. You can purchase a large bag of frozen mangoes (perfect for smoothie making) or slice ripe mangoes yourself and freeze them for the recipe. It’s best to use frozen over fresh fruit because the ice crystals thicken the smoothie mixture for the perfect frothy texture. If you opt for fresh mango, add a handful of ice to the blend. 
  • ½ cup Orange Juice: Using orange juice for the liquid ingredients adds to the tangy, sweet fruit flavors of the recipe. The orange color also brightens the vibrant smoothie.
  • ½ cup Vanilla Yogurt: To give your homemade smoothie the perfect creamy consistency, blend thick and rich vanilla yogurt into the fruit mixture. You can use regular yogurt or Greek yogurt, depending on your preference. Using vanilla yogurt instead of plain yogurt adds an extra layer of rich flavor to the Mango Smoothie recipe.
  • 1 tablespoon Sugar: Sweeten the mixture with a spoonful of granulated sugar. You can substitute with equal parts honey for a healthier option.

Kitchen Tools & Equipment

  • Blender: To easily combine all the ingredients and break the frozen fruit down, use a high-powered blender to puree the mixture. If you don’t have a standard blender, you can achieve similar results by adding the ingredients to a mixing bowl and blending with an immersion blender or pureeing the mixture in a food processor. 
  • Glasses: Other than the blender, all you need to make this recipe is something to serve the drink mixture in. You can enjoy the recipe in a regular glass with a straw or pour it into a to-go cup with a lid to take your smoothie recipe with you.

Smoothie Making Tips & Tricks

Create the perfect tasty, creamy tropical smoothie with these helpful recipe hints!

  • Blend Thoroughly: For the perfect creamy texture, you need to blend the fruit, juice, and yogurt mixture for a few minutes. Keep the blender at high speed until the mango pieces are completely blended into the liquid ingredients. 
  • Achieve the Perfect Texture: Everyone likes their smoothies slightly different. Fortunately, this recipe can be adjusted to suit your individual preferences. If the smoothie is too thin, you can add more frozen fruit or ice to make it thicker. Conversely, if the smoothie is too thick, you add an extra splash of fruit juice. Homemade smoothies are easy to alter so that you get exactly what you want. 
  • Chill It! Add about a cup of freshly made ice cubes to the blender with the other ingredients. You’ll have an ice-cold drink that will be perfect for the poolside!

Serving Ideas

  • Smoothie Drink: For a beautiful presentation, divide your fresh Mango Smoothie into two tall glasses. Add a wide, colorful straw, and top the smoothie with fresh fruit to garnish. You can add fresh mango pieces, pineapple, or other tropical fruits to decorate the drink recipe, and feel free to add a little Whipped Cream as a finishing touch.
  • Breakfast Recipes: You can serve your tropical Mango Smoothie as a filling drink recipe to complete your breakfast. Serve it up with Fruit Salad, a Yogurt Parfait, or a Granola Bar for something lighter. Or, for a larger breakfast spread, enjoy your smoothie with Banana Pancakes, Belgian Waffles, or classic bacon and eggs. 
  • Smoothie Bowl: Instead of serving in a glass, you can make your favorite smoothie recipes into a meal by serving it in a smoothie bowl with delicious toppings. Pour the Mango Smoothie into a cereal bowl and top it with granola, coconut flakes, fresh fruit, and chopped nuts. 

How to Store

  • Store: Let frozen Mango Smoothies thaw in the fridge and remix any separated ingredients before serving. If you don’t finish your Mango Smoothies, you can keep the recipe fresh in the fridge for later. Cover your glass or transfer the smoothie mixture to a glass jar or another airtight container to store. The texture will become looser in the fridge as the ice crystals melt. But it’s still an enjoyable drink recipe that you can keep for 3-4 days. 
  • Freeze: To keep your leftover smoothie longer, store it in a freezer bag or another freezer-safe container. Frozen smoothies can keep well for up to 6 months. 

Frequent Questions

Should you use fresh or frozen mango for smoothies?

It’s better to use frozen fruit in smoothie recipes. Frozen fruit thickens the mixture and keeps it chilled, while fresh fruit doesn’t have the same icey consistency. 

What’s the best way to freeze fruit for smoothie making?

If you want to learn how to freeze fruit for smoothie making, check this out! Take fresh mangoes (or any other fruit) that you want to freeze to make into smoothies peel and dice the fresh fruit. Then, add the fruit pieces to ziptop bags and remove as much air as possible before freezing.

For easy smoothie-making, measure the diced fruit and divide it into smaller bags so that each one is enough for a smoothie recipe. Then, all you have to do in the morning is grab one bag from the freezer, add juice and yogurt, and blend.

Smoothie Variations

  • Vegan Smoothie: To make a dairy-free Mango Smoothie, you’ll need to swap out the regular yogurt for non-dairy yogurt. Other than that, the recipe is already vegan-friendly. 
  • Extra Creamy Mango Smoothie: If you want to make a richer version of this smoothie recipe, you can replace part or all of the fruit juice with milk. For a nondairy milk version of this variation, use full-fat coconut milk, almond milk, cashew milk, or soy milk. You can also thicken your smoothie recipe by adding frozen banana or fresh banana slices to the mixture. 
  • Fruit Juice Varieties: If you want to stick with fruit juice for the liquid ingredient but aren’t sure about orange juice, try mixing things up with pineapple juice, grapefruit juice, or watermelon juice and see which one is your favorite!
  • More Fruit Ingredients: You can change up your fruit smoothie recipe with different varieties of frozen fruit, like frozen strawberries. Try making a mango pineapple, mango strawberry, mango papaya, or mango banana smoothie.
