This Strawberry Mango Smoothie is packed with bright flavors and bursting with fruity flavors. It's refreshing, sweet, and nutritious.
If you enjoy really sweet, fruity smoothies, then this Strawberry Mango Smoothie is for you! This quick and easy smoothie is made with just 6 ingredients and even has some hidden veggies to pack in even more goodness.
This strawberry and mango smoothie is just that. It is also banana free for those who prefer smoothies without bananas.
This smoothie has multiple layers of taste that will take you away to a tropical island. It's bursting with sweet fruit, thanks to frozen mangoes, strawberries, and oranges. It also has some sweetness from our secret ingredient - carrots!
It's the perfect breakfast, post-workout treat, or afternoon pick-me-up. Plus it's easy to customize with additions like Greek yogurt, nut butter, seeds, or protein powder.
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 creamy 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. Swap in a splash of orange juice if that's what you have.
- 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. This is optional but makes the smoothie healthier with some added nutrients, fiber, and healthy fats.
Strawberry Mango Smoothie Variations
Follow these tips to make sure that this smoothie turns out sweet and creamy every single time!
- Extra creamy: If you want a really creamy smoothie, make sure to use frozen strawberries and mangos. Then add a frozen banana to make things extra creamy.
- Add protein: Add Greek yogurt, protein powder, or collagen if you want a protein boost. The unflavored or vanilla powder works best.
- Add nutrients: Boost the nutrition by adding in some chia seeds, hemp seeds, nuts, or nut butter.
- Extra veggies: While adding green to this smoothie is an option, it will lose its beautiful bright pink color. Instead, toss in some frozen cauliflower. Trust me, no one will notice.
- Add yogurt: Add calcium and creaminess with yogurt. Plain, vanilla, or coconut are my favorite flavor options. Regular or Greek yogurt can e used.
- Add more fruit: Consider adding some raspberries, pineapple, banana, or peaches to this smoothie if you want more fruit.
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.
Make Ahead Smoothie Packets
This smoothie is great for meal prep. Simply add the strawberries, mango, carrots, orange, and flaxseeds to a freezer-safe bag or container.
When ready to make, add the smoothie bag ingredients to the blender with almond milk. Blend until smooth and creamy.
