4 Ingredient Mango Green Smoothie

I’m hoping January 1st was a soft deadline for setting New Year’s resolutions, because, per my life battle with tardiness, I’m running a wee bit behind schedule. Although my final list is still taking shape, I’m excited to share today’s Mango Green Smoothie, because it inspired the first resolution on my list: to do one small thing each day that brings me extra joy.

4 Ingredient Mango Green Smoothie — Tastes like a tropical vacation! Sweet, creamy, healthy and filled with vitamins. Kids love it too! {vegan, gluten free, and dairy free with no sugar added!}

Last year, I was super ambitious with my 2015 resolutions, and while I made progress on a few—I’ve finally gotten serious about lifting weights and feel I’ve made some improvements in the patience department too—looking back, I should have done a better job of setting goals that were a) measurable and b) reasonably attainable.

This year, I’m going to focus on small actions that will improve my everyday happiness and health: calling a friend to say hi; doing a set of pushups; reading a short news article; sipping a Mango Green Smoothie. At the end of the day, I hope to take 40 seconds to record these “bright acts” in a small notebook. Even if I never reread them, at least I will have taken a moment to reflect on the joyful moments in my day.

4 Ingredient Mango Green Smoothie Recipe—Tastes like a tropical vacation! Even kids love this sweet and creamy healthy green smoothie.

If brightness and positive change could be translated into a recipe, it would be this 4 Ingredient Mango Green Smoothie. It’s made with simple ingredients, comes together in seconds, and is jam-packed with vitamin C, vitamin K, potassium, calcium, and more. It’s also vegan, completely naturally sweetened, and gluten free.

Plus, it tastes like a tropical vacation, no sunscreen or expensive plane required.

4 Ingredient Mango Green Smoothie. Sweet, creamy, and healthy too! This tropical smoothie is vegan, gluten free and free of added sugars too.

The four easy ingredients in this paradise-worthy Mango Green Smoothie are:

  • Almond Breeze Unsweetened Vanilla Almondmilk Cashewmilk Blend. It’s incredibly rich and creamy but contains only 25 tiny calories for a whole cup. I love the extra body that it gives my smoothies, the light vanilla flavor, and the fact that one glass contains 45% of my calcium for the day. If you are already a fan of almond milk, you’ll love this new blend with cashews, and if you haven’t tried nut milk yet, this Mango Green Smoothie is the perfect reason!
  • Frozen mango chunks: If you are new to green smoothies, adding mango is an especially good way to start, because it covers the taste of the greens completely. They’re sweet, delightfully tropical, and make the smoothie nice and thick, no ice required.
  • Banana: Have an extra banana or four sitting on your counter? This Mango Green Smoothie is the perfect way to use them. Because the frozen mango is already so thick, you don’t even need to freeze the banana slices first.
  • Spinach: Raise your right pinky, because we are making a pact. I pinky swear to you right here, right now that you absolutely cannot taste the spinach in this recipe. Although it makes the smoothie nice and green (which will remind you how healthy you are being), all you will taste is the tropical flavors of the mango and banana.

The best mango green smoothie recipe. Even kids love it!

Tip: if you are serving the Mango Green Smoothie to kids and don’t want to give away the “secret ingredient,” pour the smoothie into an opaque cup with a straw. They won’t be able to see the green and will love the smoothie’s sweet, fruity taste.

  1. This sounds really good! Happy New Year girl! 

  2. What a wonderful way to kick off the new year! Nothing quite like a (healthy) drink that can make you feel like you’re in the tropics! LOVING your resolution and your idea to jot your joyful moments down in a notebook. Think I might have to try that, too! Happy 2016!

  3. I am so making this smoothie this week! Love the mango addition! 

  4. Big resolutions can be so overwhelming … but oftentimes it’s making changes to the little things that can turn into big changes in our lives! Cheers to a happy, healthy 2016 for you! Loving this mango smoothie. Anything with mango in it is a 10 in my book! 

  5. Love your resolution of doing something small to make you happy every day- so achievable and rewarding :) This smoothie looks amazing- I’m a huge mango fan!

  6. Your photos are so pretty! The smoothie looks so fresh and yummy!

  7. Well this is just delicious!  I’m sipping it as I type. ;)

  8. This smoothie looks fabulous! I know what you mean about doing the little things each day. It’s not really a resolution for me per se (I’ve been trying for months now), but it’s a much more realistic approach to life. Take it bit by bit and it’s the small things that add up! Also helps with my impatience as the results do add up slowly but surely and it’s not like you have to tackle something major all at once.

  9. Happy New Year, Erin! I love that you are focusing on smaller actions this year! I finally decided to add strength training to my workout routine a few months ago and it has been such a game changer! Green smoothies and healthy snacks are my favorite way to stay energized. This one looks gorgeous! Love the mango in here! :)

  10. Happy New Year, dear Erin! I am with you. This year, I’m also planning  to focus on small actions that will improve my everyday life. Last year I realized that oftentimes when we change small things in our lives, we can bring big changes in our lives! 
    I can’t forget to say that your green smoothie looks so delicious ;-)

  11. Best smoothie ever!! The unsweetened nutmilk is definitely key here for an unbelievably rich and creamy smoothie. (By the way, I tried the recipe today with frozen peaches and was just as pleased.)

  12. Erin- I was wondering if you ever used regular milk in this smoothie? We don’t keep any nuts due to a food allergy.

  13. I just made this smoothie and am so so pleased with how it came out! The green color is really deceiving as this smoothie is still very creamy and perfectly sweet! Getting all my veggies in can be difficult sometimes, but I am more encouraged now that I’ve used your recipe. Thank you for sharing!

    • I am so happy to hear this Marisabel! Smoothies are such a yummy way to enjoy fruits and veggies, and it’s wonderful to know this recipe has encouraged you so much. Thanks for trying it and taking time to leave your review.

  14. My 14 year old son found this recipe by chance.  We used a fresh mango and cow’s milk instead of almond milk for his preference.  Oh my goodness, this is absolutely delicious and so satisfying.  I am wondering if all your recipes are this good!  I am definitely bookmarking this site and trying more of your recipes.  

  15. I made it this morning and it was delicious! I used 2 bananas, about 2 cups of frozen mango, 1 cup of spinach and 1/2 cup of regular unsweetened almond milk (couldn’t find the almond-cashew milk) and it was AMAZING!!! Perfect texture and kept me full all morning :)

  16. SOOOO Delicious!! I was searching for a recipe to use my frozen mango and found yours!  I love smoothies as a vehicle for getting extra greens into my diet (& the way you don’t even know they’re there, except for the beautiful color!)  Today I happened to have a “power greens” mix instead of spinach, and used 2 cups–didn’t even notice a difference! Thank you for sharing this ….and the beautiful photos, which made me want to try it immediately!

  17. Nice simple recipe(I saw it on Pinterest). I also like using Almond milk a lot in green smoothies because of the consistency vs. water or rice milk. I like to throw about 1/4cup raw oats or flaxseed in to make it more filling. -Anna

  18. This looks so delicious! I was wondering how to blend my spinach and mangoes – will be testing this out tonight! :D

  19. I do make something similar like this, but with additional chia seeds, it’s very delicious

  20. Love fresh smoothies!—— It looks incredibly refreshing and healthy! I have to make this for our morning refreshment — We are dieting and it’s our go-to snack, packed with flavors and nutrition :)
