6 Different Mango Smoothie Recipes
We love mango in our household and mangos are a great basic ingredient for all kinds of smoothie combinations. This post will show you six different healthy smoothie recipes, all of which contain mango.
Frozen Mango Chunks
Although it is, of course, possible to use fresh mangos to make smoothies, we always use frozen mango chunks from Aldi as they ensure that the smoothie is cold when you make it. It also means we can enjoy mango smoothies all the year round.
We always have frozen mango chunks in our freezer and they are always the first thing that goes into the blender cup.
Why use mangos as a smoothie ingredient?
Mangos are such a great smoothie ingredient as they are not only extremely delicious fruits, but they combine so well with many other fruits. They are also very nutritious having lots of vitamin A and C and zero cholesterol.
Although mangos do have a high level of natural sugars, this is a good thing for a smoothie as you do not need to add any extra sweetener in any of these recipes. These recipes are all without added sugar, and all deliciously sweet with just the natural sugars from the mango.
How best to make a smoothie?
Well, you need a blender of some sort. We have recently purchased one of these blenders below which is just a great piece of kit. It means we can make any one of these smoothies in under a minute!
There are more powerful versions available, which may be a better fit for your budget, but for us, this one works perfectly and is more than sufficient for our needs. Highly recommended.Magic Bullet Blender, Small, Silver, 11 Piece Set
