If you enjoy really sweet smoothies, then this strawberry mango smoothie is for you! Packed full of antioxidants along with other nutrients, this healthy smoothie makes for the perfect breakfast or a satisfying and nutritious snack.

I don't know about you but I tend to have a pretty sweet tooth. And, while I do my best to keep that in check, sometimes, I want to indulge in something delicious. Lucky for me - fruit is like nature's dessert!

It's a way to indulge your sweet tooth without worrying about negatively impacting your health. Plus, fruit smoothies, like this strawberry mango smoothie, are an excellent way to sneak extra veggies into your diet, too.

This smoothie has multiple layers of taste that will take you away to a tropical island. The first sip is a burst of sweet fruit, thanks to the mangoes, strawberries, and orange. As you keep drinking it, you'll taste the richer undertones of carrots. The flaxseeds round it out to keep you feeling full and satiated.

No other 'dessert' can even come close to how this smoothie will make you feel. It's the perfect breakfast, post workout treat, or afternoon pick-me-up.

Key Ingredients

There is a bit more to this smoothie than just two types of fruit. Here is what you'll use in this delightfully sweet drink!

  • Strawberries: For the best texture, I suggest using frozen sliced strawberries. If you use fresh strawberries, you'll have to add a little bit of ice.
  • Mango Chunks: Use a little less mango than you do strawberries because this will balance out the flavors. Frozen mango chunks not only speed up your smoothie prep, but they add a wonderful texture to your drink too.
  • Carrots: Since you are going to blend everything together into a smoothie, you can use either shredded or chopped. I like to buy a bag of shredded carrots from the grocery store so I can just add it to my smoothie - no chopping required.
  • Orange: Use a fresh orange for this smoothie! Just peel it, pull it apart, and add it to the blender with the rest of the ingredients.
  • Almond Milk: Always use unsweetened almond milk in your smoothies. You can use vanilla or plain, but I suggest plain almond milk for this one. It won't clash with the other flavors.
  • Flax Seeds: If you don't have flax seeds, you can use chia seeds as a replacement.

Recipe Tips and Ideas

Follow these tips to make sure that this smoothie turns out sweet and creamy every single time!

  • If you are making just one smoothie for yourself, cut the ingredient amounts in half. This recipe makes enough for two smoothies.
  • Add ice if you are using fresh fruit. It won't be very thick unless you use something with ice in it.
  • Blend the carrots and the almond milk first before you add the rest of the ingredients. This will help the carrots to puree effectively.

What To Serve Alongside Smoothies

Since this smoothie has flax seeds, carrots, and three different types of fruit, it really fills you up. You probably won't want to eat much with it. However, if you want to eat something with a little more protein in it, grab an oatmeal protein pancake. They have lots of fiber in them, so this combination will definitely fill you up!

Or, you can always just scramble some eggs and eat them with your smoothie. This will keep the meal light and won't make you feel overly full.

Frequently Asked Questions

Here are some questions I frequently get asked about by some readers…

Is this smoothie recipe low-carb?

Each smoothie has about 28g net carbs in it, so no, it is not considered low-carb. There isn't any added sugar in it, but the types of fruit I used all have lots of naturally occurring carbs/sugars in them.

How many smoothies does this make?

This recipe makes enough for two smoothies. The ingredients will not fit in an individual bullet blender. If you want to use a small blender, cut the ingredient amounts in half.

Can I use mandarin oranges?

Yes, you can use any type of orange that you want. I highly recommend trying this with blood orange or mandarin oranges!

If you use smaller mandarin oranges, I suggest using 2 of them. If you use just one, it might not be enough to really bring out the citrus flavor.

What other types of fruit can I add to this smoothie?

This is the fun part! Add your favorite types of fruits to this smoothie. For example, replace the strawberries with bananas. Or, add a few slices of kiwi.

I personally love that this recipe doesn't have any Greek yogurt or bananas in it. It's a refreshing break from those two ingredients. I use them in so many of my other smoothie recipes!

Can I add protein powder to this smoothie?

I would not add protein powder to this smoothie. Since you are already using flax (or chia) seeds, adding protein powder will alter the texture way too much. However, you could try replacing the flaxseeds with a scoop of unflavored protein powder and see how you like it. I haven't tested it, so I can't honestly say either way.
