Strawberries, mangoes and oranges are an excellent source of Vitamin C making this low-carb drink a cold-kicking dynamo. I sometimes add some ginger in the mix to give this smoothie depth and the added health benefit of soothing tummies, but it’s not necessary to include it.
How to make strawberry mango smoothie
Here are the ingredients you’ll need:
- Strawberries: You can use fresh or frozen strawberries. They add lots of Vitamin C to the smoothie recipe.
- Mangoes: Again, you can use fresh or frozen mangoes, but it’s easier on the blender if only one of those two were frozen. Lean how to cut a mango quickly and easily.
- Oranges: Oranges also add a great amount of Vitamin C and pair well with the sweetness of the mangoes
- Carrots: This is a great option for adding a serving of vegetables that easily blend into the color of the strawberry mango smoothie without changing the taste.
- Almond milk: I like to keep my smoothies vegan by using plant-based milk. But you can use regular milk, water, orange juice or coconut water. You just need some liquid to get the blender going.
Make this healthy strawberry mango smoothie in just a minute! 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. You can also add some sweetener since we’re not using any fruits that are too sweet. The recipe makes enough for two 12 ounce cups, which is what’s pictured.
Tips to make this strawberry mango smoothie
- Don’t add ice to this smoothie when you blend it. Ice will dilute the drink and because you are using frozen mango or frozen strawberries, you won’t need it. I also like to use chilled almond milk.
- Use ripe fruit. The riper the strawberries and mangoes, the sweeter and more flavorful they will be. If the fruits are frozen, they are most likely frozen at their peak sweetness so you won’t have to worry about that.
- Blend the smoothie for at least a minute. If you are using a standard, rather than a high speed blender you may need to blend it for up to 2 minutes to get it nice and smooth.
Frequently asked questions
Can you make smoothies ahead of time?
Smoothies are best to enjoy as soon as they are made. As soon as the fruit is oxidized they start to lose their nutrients, so if you can have it right away. If you can’t enjoy it straight away, keep it in an air tight container for up to 24 hours. After that time it will start to deteriorate.
Can you use any milk in this smoothie?
I used almond milk for this vegan smoothie, but you can use any type of milk you wish. Oat, coconut, soy and dairy will all work well, so feel free to use whatever you have in the fridge.
When’s the best time to have this smoothie?
This strawberry mango smoothie is great to enjoy as a mid morning or mid afternoon pick me up. Each serving is around 180 calories, so it’s perfect to enjoy as a healthy snack.
