Mango shake ingredients
We will use very simple ingredients to make a healthy mango smoothie, low in calories and full of flavor.
- Fresh or Frozen Mango
- Dates (mango and bananas are naturally sweet but you can add some extra sweetness using dates or date paste)
- Frozen banana
Optionally add fresh mint for an extra fresh flavor to your mango banana smoothie.
To make a mango smoothie you can use fresh mango or frozen mangoes. Use a good quality blender so you can blend ice and frozen goods seamlessly.
Blend chopped mango, banana slices, pitted dates, ice-cold water, and pitted dates or date paste in a high-speed blender and blend until smooth and you reach the desired consistency (about 40 seconds).
Then pour the smoothie into a tall glass and optionally garnish with mint leaves.
As a rule of thumb, you can make a fruit smoothie with frozen fruit without worrying about the nutrients loss because they are well-preserved.
In addition, frozen fruit is usually picked at the best moment of the ripening process of fruit.
If you go for fresh mangoes and bananas, peel them and cut them into chunks. Remember, you can also do this the night before or even days before and have them ready-made to save some minutes of your morning routine.
Frozen bananas will help achieve the creamy texture we are looking for, without adding Greek yogurt into your mango smoothie.
- Pineapple - make a banana mango pineapple smoothie simply adding one cup of frozen pineapple chunks to make a fantastic smoothie full of tropical flavors. You can also simply replace water with pineapple juice.
- Richer - we decided to make a mango naked smoothie, but you can use your non-dairy milk of choices such as almond milk, coconut milk, cashew milk, oat milk, or soy milk. Mango smoothies are naturally creamy given the fantastic texture that manoes have but you can also add half a cup of your favorite dairy-free yogurt. Our favorite is coconut yogurt.
- Coconut - to make a coconut mango smoothie, instead of using cold water, use the same quantity of light coconut milk.
- Green - to make a mango green smoothie, add one cup of fresh or frozen spinach to the blender. It won't affect the flavor because spinach is very mild, especially if using baby spinach.
- More antioxidants - add a tablespoon of chia seeds, it will be a thicker smoothie as chia seeds will jellify.
- Sweetness - this healthy drink already has all the sweetness from frozen bananas and mangoes but if you have a sweet tooth, you can naturally sweeten it with a tablespoon of maple syrup. Another option is to simply replace the water with orange juice. It will also taste amazing.
- Make a Mango Protein Smoothie - add protein powder to raise the protein content. We like using the clean protein powder (affiliate link) (affiliate) from complement because it only used clean plant-based organic sources and makes smoothies super creamy.
How to make a smoothie thicker
A thick smoothie can be a delicious and satisfying treat, but getting a perfect consistency can be a challenge. If your smoothie is too thin, you may want to add a thickening agent to give it some body.
However, adding too much can make your smoothie unpalatable, so it's important to find the right balance. One way to thicken a smoothie is to add a frozen ingredient, such as bananas or berries.
Another option is to use ice cubes made from juice or coconut water. You can also add dairy-free yogurt, oatmeal, chia seeds, or avocados for an extra boost of thickness. With a little experimentation, you'll be able to find the perfect ingredients to create a smoothie that's just the right consistency for you.
