This super sweet and refreshing mango recipe is one of my favorite easy breakfast ideas!
I am always looking for ways to make life a little easier. One of the best things I've ever done for myself is to nail down a great morning routine, and the biggest part of that has been finding simple breakfast ideas.
I also always have a good supply of light breakfast ideas because some days I am super hungry, but other days I'm honestly not that hungry in the morning but know that I still need something full of good nutrients that can power my morning.
This mango smoothie bowl checks all of my boxes and most importantly, it's delicious!
Mango: There is truly nothing better than sweet, ripe mango. You can either use fresh or frozen mango in this recipe.
If you choose to use frozen mango, you can either buy a bag of pre-frozen mango from the freezer section of the grocery store, or you can peel, slice, and freeze your own mango ahead of time. Either option works great.
Mango is packed with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, making this a healthy smoothie option. You can read more about the healthy benefits of mango in this article.
Pineapple: I recommend using frozen pineapple to help with the frozen and frosty texture and consistency in this smoothie.
This mango pineapple smoothie recipe is bursting with flavor, just be sure that if you freeze your own pineapple, you wait to slice and freeze it when it is at its peak ripeness. This will ensure that you have the best possible flavor.
Banana: Next up is another star ingredient in this mango banana smoothie. Always peel, slice, and freeze the bananas in advance when making smoothies for the best texture possible.
Just like with the pineapple and the mango, if you're freezing the banana yourself, wait until its at peak ripeness before freezer. Also, always be sure you're peeling the banana and slicing it before freezing. Otherwise things are much more difficult (and I like to keep things as easy as possible).
Oat Milk: I felt that the best liquid base for this smoothie was oat milk. I absolutely love making an oat milk smoothie. I feel that it makes things so nice and creamy and sweet.
You can use regular, unsweetened oat milk, which is what I usually do. You also have the option to use a sweetened version, or even get really fancy and use a vanilla oat milk.
All of these delicious plant based ingredients help to make this one of my favorite low calorie smoothies.
See recipe card below for quantities.
This is another really easy recipe, yay!
All you have to do is put all of the ingredients in the blender and blend until you have a ready to drink smoothie.
Transfer it to your cup or bowl and add any toppings you want. I recommend granola, coconut flakes, and fresh fruit.
You can swap the oat milk out for almond milk to make this an almond milk smoothie recipe.
If you don't have either oat milk or almond milk on hand, you can use any plant-based milk or coconut water instead.
If you want to make a smoothie without banana, I would add ½ cup vanilla vegan yogurt and 1 cup of ice.
