In my quest to do one small thing each day that brings me extra joy, I present today’s bright and sunny 4 Ingredient Mango Smoothie.

This mango spinach banana smoothie is not only incredibly healthy, but it’s also refreshing, creamy, and flat-out DELISH.

Now, before you question whether or not a green smoothie can truly taste that good, what if I said you can add mango and banana to your smoothie for a flavor that tastes like a tropical vacay? Now we’re talking. <—Unless I caught you mid-slurp. Go ahead and finish. We can high five over a healthy breakfast smoothie that’s reminiscent of an island getaway as soon as you come up for air.

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.

Mango Smoothie Recipe – A Healthy Addition to Your Day

Green smoothies are healthy if you use wholesome ingredients, which this recipe does from start to finish (and so does this Kale Smoothie)! To make sure your green smoothie is healthy and avoids some pitfalls:

  • Fill your green smoothie with whole fruit that doesn’t have any added sugars. Frozen fruit is an excellent option; make sure fruit is the only ingredient.
  • Be generous with the greens. Thanks to the added nutrition from leafy greens, with all other ingredients equal green smoothies are better than fruit smoothies that don’t use greens. Spinach is a great choice because it is so mild, most of the time you cannot even taste it.
  • Avoid hidden added sugars like the ones found in juices and some yogurts.

One of the best spinach mango banana smoothie benefits is the extra servings of fruits and veggies it gives you in a single glass, a positive addition from which we can all benefit. Here are just a few of this recipe’s benefits:

  • Mango is packed with Vitamin-C and antioxidants (read more mango health benefits here).
  • Bananas bring potassium and fiber to this smoothie (see more about bananas here).
  • Spinach is rich in iron and Vitamin-K (learn more about spinach health benefits here).

Since this is a mango smoothie with almond milk, you’re also getting a boost of calcium.

How to Make This Paradise-Worthy Mango Green Smoothie

This easy mango banana smoothie recipe turns a handful of simple ingredients into a stellar, flavor-packed treat. The fruit adds a natural, tropical sweetness that makes you want to keep sipping.

The Ingredients

  • Unsweetened Almond Milk. It’s creamy and contains only 30 calories for a whole cup. It’s my smoothie liquid of choice (I especially like the unsweetened vanilla). Since this mango smoothie is made without milk, it’s appropriate for those who cannot eat dairy.
  • Frozen Mango. If you are new to green smoothies, adding mango is an excellent way to start, because it covers the taste of the greens completely. Mango is naturally sweet, delightfully tropical, and makes the smoothie nice and thick, no ice required.
  • Banana. Have an extra banana or four sitting on your counter? Bananas blend well with mango, making them perfect for this smoothie. 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 are the tropical flavors of the mango and banana.

Recipe Adaptations

  • Mango Smoothie Recipe without Banana. If you’d like to make this a mango green smoothie no banana, you can swap in Greek yogurt instead. Use some additional mango or toss in frozen pineapple for an extra boost of fruity flavor.
  • Mango Spinach Protein Smoothie. Add your favorite protein powder to make this smoothie even more filling. Vanilla-flavored protein would be tasty here.
  • Mango Smoothie Recipe with Yogurt. This is a mango smoothie without yogurt, but you could add some plain Greek yogurt if you want the extra protein boost.
  • Spinach Mango Pineapple Smoothie. Swap the banana for frozen or fresh pineapple chunks. If using frozen, you may need to add another splash of almond milk to help everything blend smoothly.
  • Mango Strawberry Smoothie. Check out my paradise-approved healthy Strawberry Mango Smoothie.
  • Vegan Mango Smoothie. This smoothie is vegan as written.

Healthy Mango Smoothie Storage Tips

  • To Store. Leftover smoothies can be stored in an airtight jar in the refrigerator for up to 1 day.
  • To Freeze. Freeze smoothies in airtight freezer-safe jars for up to 3 months. Let thaw overnight in the refrigerator before serving.

Recommended Tools to Make This Healthy Mango Smoothie Recipe

  • Blender. I recently acquired this unbelievably powerful blender, and it whips this frozen mango smoothie recipe (and everything else) together in seconds. I’ve also used and recommend this more affordable KitchenAid and this Ninja blender.
  • Opaque Cup. 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.
  • Stainless Steel Straws. For an extra cool and creamy mango smoothie experience.

Whether you blend this mango green smoothie on your way out the door in the morning, sip it as a healthy afternoon snack, or enjoy it as a sweet post-workout reward, this healthy smoothie recipe is a guaranteed way to brighten your day!

  1. 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!

  2. 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! 

  3. 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!

  4. 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.

  5. 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! :)

  6. 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 ;-)

  7. 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.)5 stars

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

  9. 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!5 stars

    1. 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.

  10. 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.  5 stars

  11. 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 :)5 stars

    1. Melodie, I am so excited to hear this!! Thanks so much for trying the recipe and taking time to come back and leave this lovely review. It means a lot!

  12. 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!5 stars

  13. 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. -Anna5 stars

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

  15. 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 :)

  16. Amazing, this is the formula I’ve been looking for, so it’s not easy to do it. Your post helped me a lot thank you very much, Erin!5 stars

  17. Hello Erin. Here goes another recipe keeper. Simple to make, has only healthy ingredients, and is beneficial to me and the baby in my stomach (I’m 6 months pregnant). I’ve been a bit guilty for not eating many greens so I am thankful for this recipe.5 stars

  18. Just made this smoothie with my 11 yo son, who does not like spinach. Its a hit with both of us. So thick and creamy and you cannot taste the spinach at all. Note: it definitely makes enough for two!5 stars

  19. hello erin :-) just tried out your recipe and we love it!!! my first ever green smoothie so thank you for teaching me to love them!!5 stars

  20. I just tried this during q 2020 why not add fruits and veggies to the limited mobility mix. I added a bit of almond butter for protein and had to sub with OatMilk since a grocery run means playing Russian roulette with everyone’s immune system now! Delicious, she was real cute! 5 stars

  21. Love your recipes. Would there ever be a way for you to have a barcode of the nutritional list for the recipes?  I would love to be able to incorporate your recipes easily to food tracker app. (WW) + (MFP)

  22. Erin I’m going to try this one.  My go to is one banana, blueberries, spinach and 1% milk.  You cannot taste the spinach at all even though I love it!  I’ll do yours next as I have to get mangoes.  I also got an email notice from Amazon that your cookbooks  are going to be coming as I preordered one for me and my son!!  I should get it on August 31 or September 1  woot woot!!  I cannot wait!!!  ❤️

  23. I’ve made this with spinach before and really enjoyed it. This morning I made it with basil instead of spinach since I always have so much (I grow it indoors). It was delicious! You have to *really* like basil since its flavor does not disappear like spinach, but I think the mango and basil flavors worked well together.5 stars
