13 Mango Smoothie Recipes for Weight Loss

A mango smoothie is one of my family’s favorite type of smoothie because it’s filled with such a sweet fruit. Mangoes are so nutritious, and they have a creaminess about them that works so well in a smoothie recipe.

Mango smoothies make a great breakfast smoothie since they’re full of fiber, antioxidants, and Vitamins A & C. This also make them a great metabolism boosting food as well as a potent beauty food.

They’re also relatively low in calories, which will help you lose weight,  and have even been known to reduce oxidative stress on the body (1,2).

How to Make a Mango Smoothie

Mango smoothie recipes are pretty simple to make.

Directions:Blender with Fruit

  • Step 1 – add all the ingredients into a blender
  • Step 2 – blend until smooth
  • Step 3 – pour into two medium size glasses
  • Step 4 – enjoy!

If you want to make the smoothie cold, you have two options:

  1. Freeze the fruit, or buy frozen fruit.
  2. Add 1/2 a cup of ice.

For these mango recipes, try cut up a whole mango into 1 inch cubes, then freeze into 2 cup servings. This way you’ll have the exact amount you need without chopping up a new mango every time.

Many grocery stores will also have frozen mangos, this means you can enjoy these mango smoothie recipes all year long! Try to get organic both in frozen and fresh produce if possible.

If you’re using fresh mangoes, make sure they are ripe for maximum sweetness and creaminess.

I also recommend you serve these mango smoothies quickly since they generally taste best when cold.
