Ingredients You’ll Need

  • Frozen mango chunks– this tropical fruit is a great source of fiber and antioxidants, such as copper and vitamin C, which can boost your immune system. I like using frozen fruit in smoothies because it replaces the need for ice typically.
  • Plain yogurt – I prefer to use full-fat Greek yogurt for smoothies but nonfat greek yogurt also works well. Greek yogurts are higher in protein and give the smoothie a more creamy texture.
  • Coconut milk – coconut milk adds creaminess and more flavor depth. It also contains medium chain triglycerides (MCT), which keep you feeling full for longer and may improve insulin sensitivity (1). 
  • Almond milk – I love using almond milk as the main liquid source of smoothies because it’s light, however, you could use any type of milk you prefer.
  • Protein powder – this is the main source of protein in this smoothie. You can use any type of whey or vegan protein powder you prefer. I tend to use unflavored collagen peptides in smoothies since it doesn’t change the flavor profile.
  • Flaxseed – flaxseed is an affordable seed option that offers a lot of nutrition. It’s a great source of healthy fats, particularly omega 3 fatty acids, which can lower inflammation levels.

How to Make It

I love smoothies for so many reasons, but one reason is that they’re such a breeze to make!

All you have to do is add all of the ingredients to a high-speed blender and blend for about 30 seconds or until smooth. 

Then pour into a glass and enjoy! 

If you’re feeling fancy, you can garnish it with a circular lime wedge, sliced banana, or mango chunks. 

Variations

  • Dairy-free? Replace the greek yogurt with coconut yogurt or another dairy-free yogurt
  • Prefer a thinner consistency? Add more almond milk to create your desired consistency 
  • Prefer a thicker smoothie? Use less almond milk to create your desired consistency
  • Need a vegan smoothie? Follow dairy free instructions above and use a plant-based vanilla protein powder
  • Prefer fresh fruit? Use fresh mango instead of frozen mango (you may need to add some ice cubes if you use fresh fruit)
  • Add other tropical fruit such as ripe banana, pineapple, kiwi, or strawberries for more tropical flavors
  • Nut free? Swap coconut milk & almond milk for traditional milk, soy milk, or another plant-based milk 
  • Add a little bit of honey, monk fruit, maple syrup or another sweetener for a sweeter taste
  • Pack in extra nutrients with a handful of spinach or frozen cauliflower
  • Make it a smoothie bowl – pour this smoothie into a bowl and add fresh banana, mango, berries, coconut, granola, or chopped nuts
  • No flax seeds? Use chia seeds or hemp seeds
  • Make a double batch and freeze into popsicle molds for a frozen sweet treat

FAQs

How Should I Store This? 

This creamy smoothie is best enjoyed immediately, however, it can easily be prepped in advance and stored in an air-tight container in the refrigerator for up to 24 hours. Shake or stir it up prior to drinking. 

Are Mango Smoothies Good For You?

Similar to any smoothie, it depends on how it’s made and what’s in it! Mangoes are a very nutritious fruit. They provide ample amounts of fiber, vitamin C, copper, folate, and vitamin B6. 

This mango protein smoothie recipe is healthy and good for you. It provides not only the mangoes, but also a source of healthy fats and protein to maintain balanced blood sugar levels and keep you feeling full. 

Are Mangoes High In Protein?

Mangoes are not high in protein. One ripe mango fruit has less than 3 grams of protein. 

How Much Protein Is In A Mango Smoothie?

It depends on how it’s made and which ingredients are used. If a mango smoothie doesn’t add an additional protein source, it will probably be low in protein. This Mango Protein Smoothie uses Greek yogurt and protein powder to provide a healthy dose of protein: 29 grams of protein per serving.
