If you are like me, you often have a few spare bananas hanging out in your kitchen. Rather than toss them when they reach that point of almost over-ripe, I typically wrap them up and put them in the freezer to enjoy them in a variety of recipes. When frozen and then added to a smoothie, a banana gives a luscious, ice cream-like texture. In this amazing mango banana smoothie, they add just the right level of sweetness and density in addition to fiber, digestive support, and blood sugar regulation.

Ingredients for this Mango Chia Seed Smoothie with Bananas

  • Frozen Bananas: Bananas are naturally sweet and full of fiber and antioxidants. 
  • Frozen Cauliflower: Cauliflower is an excellent source of vitamins and minerals, along with fiber. Its bulk helps thicken the smoothie, and its mild flavor can’t be detected in the finished product. 
  • Chia Seeds: Chia seeds are an excellent source of protein, fiber, complex carbohydrates, and healthy fats. They also help thicken this smoothie. 
  • Coconut Milk: Coconut milk is a great source of calcium, magnesium,  and potassium. Adding coconut milk helps you adjust the thickness of the smoothie to suit your taste. 
  • Chopped Mango: This bright, sweet tropical fruit is loaded with vitamins A and C, contains a bit of fiber, and is naturally sweet. 
  • Try other add-ins: You can use oatmeal, avocado, other frozen fruits, yogurt, or even tofu. 
  • Omit the cauliflower: You can omit the cauliflower if you like. You’ll need to use less coconut milk, however, as the cauliflower adds bulk and body to the smoothie. 
  • Use flaxseeds in place of chia seeds: Ground flaxseed can be used in place of chia seeds. 
  • Use vegan or dairy milk: Use your favorite plant-based milk if you’re vegan. If not, you can use regular milk. 
  • Try adding spinach: Like cauliflower, spinach adds tons of vitamins to your smoothie, and you can’t taste it.

How to Make a Mango Banana Smoothie

It’s so simple to make this healthy mango banana smoothie! Simply place all of the ingredients into a high-speed blender and blend until smooth. Taste the smoothie and add additional milk if it is too thick, or add some sweetener like honey or maple if it’s not sweet enough for you. The recipe makes enough for two 12-ounce cups, which is what’s pictured.

Tips for Making the Best Mango Banana Smoothie

  • Make sure at least one of the items is frozen. I usually use frozen bananas, but you can also freeze the cauliflower or mangoes. This really helps to thicken the smoothie and chill it without watering it down with ice cubes.
  • Drink this smoothie as soon as you make it. Once the ingredients are oxidized, they start to lose their nutritional value. If you can’t drink it straight away, keep it sealed in the cup or transfer it to a mason jar for up to 24 hours.
  • Use over ripe bananas for your smoothie. Overripe bananas are naturally sweeter, but they also contain more antioxidants than those that are just ripe. And this way, there’s no need for adding sweetener.
  • Use a high speed blender. There’s nothing worse than drinking a smoothie and getting chunks in your mouth! If you don’t have a high speed blender, I recommend stirring it every once in a while with a long spoon and blending for an extra minute.

How to Store This Mango Chia Seed Smoothie with Banana

If you have any leftover smoothie, place it in an air-tight container.

How long will a mango chia seed smoothie last in the fridge? 

Ideally, this smoothie should be consumed immediately after making it for the best flavor and texture. However, if you must store it, it will last for up to 24 hours in the fridge in an air-tight container. 

Can I freeze a mango chia seed smoothie? 

This smoothie freezes very well. Simply pour the smoothie into an air-tight, freezer-safe container with a tight-fitting lid and freeze it for up to a month. Defrost the smoothie overnight in the refrigerator to enjoy it the next morning. 

Frequently asked questions

How long should you blend a smoothie for?

Blend all of the ingredients for about 60 seconds so that all of the ingredients are broken up and well combined. If you are using a low speed blender, you may need to blend for an extra minute.

Can you taste the cauliflower in this smoothie?

Cauliflower is a very bland vegetable, so when combined with the other ingredients in this smoothie you can’t taste it all. Cauliflower is high in fiber so it will keep you feeling full for longer. It’s a great way of sneaking extra veggies into your families diet!

Do you add ice to this mango banana smoothie?

Because you use frozen banana and cauliflower in this smoothie, there is no need to add ice. If you add ice it will dilute and thin the drink. If none of the ingredients are frozen however, you can add 1-2 ice cubes.

Two glasses of mango banana smoothies
