Sunshine in a glass with my Mango Smoothie

Jump to Recipe

Smoothies are perfect for sunny days and my mango smoothie tastes just like sunshine in a glass.

Smoothies are also a great way to get some fresh fruit in for a healthy start to your day. I try to add some vegetables in to my smoothies where I can to give that extra boost. It is also a great way to get some fruit and veg into someone who is not a fan of their 5 a day.

Method for a Mango Smoothie

Smoothies are so easy to make and something I often get my kids to help with. You will first need to prepare your ingredients. I like to use frozen mango as this is an easy option but also makes the smoothie thicker and cold. You will need to peel and chop off the end of your carrot before grating it.

Using a grated carrot will provide a texture to your smoothie but you can sieve the mixture or simply not include the carrot.

in the blender

I use a basic Russel Hobbs blender but this will also work in a food processor if you don’t own a blender. Simply blend all your ingredients together. You may want to use the pulse option on your blender if you have one as this helps to blend the frozen mango.


If the smoothie is too thick or not blending well add some more orange juice or water. Just be careful not to add too much liquid as then it will be very thin (unless this is your preference).

Fruit Smoothies

The best thing about smoothies is it is easy to play around and find your favourite flavours. They are also a great way to use up fruit you have around the house. Here are a couple more of my favourite flavour combinations:

  • Frozen raspberries, blueberries, apple juice and lime juice
  • Carrot, ginger and orange juice
  • Apple, pear, spinach, apple juice and lime juice

I often like to add some fresh lime juice into green smoothies as it gives a nice fresh kick.

    Say hello from Vietnam,
    I love mango and everything related to it. Mango smoothie is the bomb and can’t be missed. But sometimes I’m just too lazy to do all the work :).

    This has inspired me to dig the blender out from the back of the kitchen cupboard! Love the idea of sneaking in some veg for the kids too! Thanks so much for linking up at #KCACOLS. Hope you come back again next time.
