Mango Smoothie Ingredients
You only need a few things to make a basic mango smoothie. However, you can swap things out or add more if you like.
Here is what you’ll need to make a basic mango smoothie:
- Frozen cubed mango
- Orange juice
- Plain Greek yogurt
You can add more sweetness with a little bit of honey or maple syrup.
I prefer it with just the sweetness from the fruit and orange juice.
If you want to use vanilla yogurt, that’s fine too. Keep in mind that most vanilla yogurt has added sugar, so you probably won’t want to add more sweetener to it.
I used Greek yogurt in this smoothie. However, if you have regular yogurt, that’s fine too. It’s all about personal preference and using what you have on hand.

How to Make a Mango Smoothie
I used a personal blender for this smoothie. Although you can use a bigger blender, I’ve found that it’s easier to clean a small one.
First, gather all of your ingredients so you have them ready to add. It’s really easy with this smoothie because there aren’t many necessary ingredients.
When I first start a small blender, I like to put the liquid in first. Then I add the solid ingredients.
So start out with the orange juice, then add the mango, banana, and yogurt. Add whatever else you want into the mixture.
Pulse the blender until the mango is broken into small pieces.
Then go ahead and blend it until you have a creamy, smooth consistency.
Pour the smoothie into a glass or travel cup, and you’re good to go!
There’s an opening on top of my personal blender, so I can drink the smoothie directly from that. However, I prefer using a separate glass.
You can add more ingredients for an even bigger blast of nutrition. Some of my favorites are pineapple, peaches, and nectarines.
You can also add blueberries, but be aware that the color will change quite a bit. Since the colors are opposites on the color wheel, it will turn out a tad brownish.
That doesn’t bother me, but if you want to keep the color pure, stay with yellows, oranges, or even something red, like strawberries.
Benefits of This Mango Smoothie
The mango and banana provide vitamins, minerals, and fiber that your body needs in order to function at a high level. Besides that, they taste delicious, so it’s easy to consume what you need for good health.
Yogurt is an excellent probiotic that’s good for gut health. It also provides the creamy texture that provides the smoothness you enjoy.
Benefits of a Personal Blender
For the longest time, I made single-serving smoothies in either my large blender or my NutriBullet. And both are good.
Then I finally broke down and purchased a Hamilton Beach personal blender that gives me just the right amount of space to make a single smoothie.
So now, when my husband wants a lemonade smoothie, and I want this mango smoothie, it’s easy to do.
I also love the fact that it has the measurement markings on the side.
Plus, cleanup is a breeze! I just put a little water in it, add a tiny bit of dish soap, pop it on the base, and blend for a few seconds. After a quick rinse, it’s ready for the next smoothie.
I put a link to this personal blender in the recipe card below.
Smoothies with Snacks
We enjoy smoothies with all kinds of snacks. My reasoning is that they balance out the snack with an extra dose of nutrition.
