Mango Berry Green Smoothie

Mango Berry Green Smoothie Recipe

I love tropical fruit – especially mango. To be honest, I never realized I was a mango fan until I started making my Tropical Green Smoothies. That recipe uses a frozen tropical fruit mix that has pineapple, mango, and strawberries. It is super good. I get a be bag of it from BJ’s Wholesale Club for only $10 and it is organic. Anyway, I find myself always picking out extra pieces of mango out to munch on while my smoothie is blending. So that got me thinking “Hmmm I wonder if they sell bags of just frozen mango”. And guess what? They do! So I bought a bag and began testing out some new green smoothie recipes.

I decided to use mango and berries (raspberries, strawberries, and blackberries) together. Just so you know I also purchase the berries at BJ’s too. Again, it was only $10 for a big bag of frozen organic berries. At first, I was going to use the mango alone – and I may still do that – but the berries were calling for me so I decided to use them. For my liquid I used unsweetened coconut milk. If you look at my other green smoothie recipes you will see this is my favorite. I really love the creaminess coconut milk brings to my smoothies.  Of course, you can use almond milk or any favorite liquid. I also threw some chia seeds in for a little power food kick. And for my green I used kale. Spinach would also work great. One of my goals is to expand my horizon when it comes to the green in my “green” smoothies.

The first time I made this smoothie I added ½ cup of Greek vanilla yogurt. It was good but I did not think I could taste the mango enough. The second time I made it I left the yogurt out and loved it – the flavor of the mango really came through. So if you are lactose intolerant or trying to reduce your dairy then you will enjoy this green smoothie because it is dairy free. Yay!

I did not feel the need to add any additional sweetener. The mango and banana made the smoothie sweet enough. However, you do get a little tartness from the berries so after it is blended give it a taste. If you think you need a little extra sweetness add in a teaspoon or so of pure maple syrup or honey.

Besides the flavor the mango brings to the smoothies I absolutely love the texture it lends.  When frozen mango is blended up it becomes very smooth and silky. Add in the creaminess of coconut milk and it was simply delicious. This green smoothie is a keeper!

    Hi~ I’ve been following your blog for awhile now and it is sooo encouraging! I have also just begun WW and I have a nutritional question on the smoothie. Is the full 2 cup serving 4 WW+ points? or does the smoothie make 2 – 1 cup servings?

    Hope that makes sense. Thanks again for all your encouragement and hard work to inspire us all!

    • The full recipe makes about 4 cups. So 2 cups is one serving. Hope that helps. Thank you for reading.

  2. When you say coconut milk, do you mean the kind in the refrigerated section or the kind in the can?

  3. Hi, thanks for sharing your recipes! Love having new smoothies to try in the morning, especially depending on what food I picked up while grocery shopping. Just wondering, where do you get the Calorie information that is posted under each recipe? I made this smoothie in my Magic Bullet this morning (which holds 500mL/2 cups like the serving size), and used 50g/50mL for each fruit and the green and milk. But when I put everything in MyFitnessPal, which I actually use because I saw you recommend it on another post, I came out at around 220 Calories. Am I just using MFP incorrectly? haha
