Ingredients + Benefits
The recipe for mango strawberry smoothie is super simple and uses only 6 healthy ingredients:
- Strawberries: Frozen strawberries is what I usually prefer to add in this smoothie. You can definitely use fresh strawberries though. These berries are loaded with antioxidants, and adds good amount of vitamin C to this drink.
- Mango: You have freedom to use either fresh or frozen mango for this smoothie recipe. I prefer to use fresh mango in smoothies when they are in season. Off-season? Grab a pack of frozen mango cubes from the freezer aisle of grocery store and make this smoothie. Mangoes are high in antioxidants, and dietary fiber. They are rich source of vitamins like A, B, E, K and minerals like potassium, folate and much more.
- Banana: Frozen banana adds sweetness with milkshake like flavor, creaminess and lots of potassium to the smoothie.
- Carrot: It is packed with vitamin A, fiber, manganese and potassium. Adding a carrot does only good to the smoothie without even changing the taste.
- Low-Fat Milk: I chose to use low fat dairy milk for this strawberry and mango smoothie recipe. However, feel free to use below mentioned dairy-free options, if you like.
- Low-Fat-Yogurt: Plain unsweetened low fat yogurt adds a great base and let the sweet and tart flavor of all the fruits shine through in this smoothie. Further, yogurt helps in providing a good dose of probiotics that you need in your diet.
How to make Strawberry Mango Smoothie?
To start with, add milk, yogurt, frozen banana, frozen strawberries, sliced carrot and mango chunks in a high-speed blender jar.
Blend until smooth. You can add a splash of milk or water if you like a thinner smoothie, if needed.
Pour this delicious mango and strawberry smoothie in serving glasses and enjoy!
Fruits: Use ripe mango and strawberries, the riper they are, the sweeter the smoothie will be. If you are freezing your own strawberries, choose the ones that are ripe and free from blemishes. The store bought frozen fruits are usually frozen at their peak ripeness and sweetness, so you are good to go with those ones.
Thickening Smoothies: Use frozen fruits (or vegetables) to thicken your smoothies. You can either buy frozen pre-cuts from the stores or freeze your own. Frozen strawberries tend to be icy, so it pairs very well with creamier frozen fruit like banana or mango giving you a bright thick smoothie. You can also use 1-2 tablespoons oatmeal to make your smoothie thick giving you that extra dose of fiber as well.
Blender: Good high-speed blenders are great for making smoothies. Keep in mind to blend at least for a minute for a smooth drink. If you are using standard blender, you may have to blend it for 1-2 minutes for a nice smooth drink.
Smoothie Bowl: Want to make turn this drink into a smoothie bowl? Reduce the liquid to half a quantity. I would recommend using frozen mango cubes along with frozen strawberries and banana. Transfer to a serving bowl and add your favorite fruits, nuts and seeds topping, there you are! Enjoy!
FAQs + Storage
Yes and No! Smoothies are always best enjoyed as soon as you make them. I would suggest you to make smoothie and consume it straight away. You do not want your fruit smoothie to oxidize and loose its nutrients.
If you can't consume it right away, store it in an airtight container or a mason jar in the fridge for up to 24 hours only. Try and finish it within that 24 hours, or it will start to turn brown and spoil fast.
Yes! You can freeze any leftover smoothie in an airtight freezer safe box or ziplock bag for up to 3 months. Thaw it overnight in the fridge before serving. You can also pour smoothie into ice cube trays or freeze them in popsicle molds for a healthy after dinner sweet treat.
Variations and optional add-ins
I love how easily adaptable my mango and strawberry smoothie recipe is. In few simple swaps you can customize this smoothie with what you have on hand or what you like. Here are few options below to choose from:
Fruits and Berries : Peach, kiwi, pineapple, blueberries, raspberries, oranges, acai berries, or avocado.
Greens: Feel free to throw in a handful of fresh baby spinach, kale or chard.
Vegan or dairy-free: You can actually make this strawberry mango banana smoothie without dairy milk and yogurt. Simply swap dairy milk with plant-based options like almond milk or oat milk (feel free to use fruit juices like orange, strawberry or pineapple juice or coconut water instead). For a lovely intense tropical flavor, try adding coconut yogurt or cream in place of dairy yogurt.
Spike up the Protein: Want a bit of extra good fats, fiber and protein? Feel free to add any of these: chia seeds, flax seeds, sunflowers seeds, almonds, pistachios, walnuts or nut butters like peanut or almond butter. All would work well! Other options includes vanilla flavored protein powder, wheat grass, wheat germ or any superfood you like.
