Smoothies are one of my favorite light meals or snacks when I am in a hurry because they take only a few minutes to put together and are easy to drink on the go. I can make smoothie a lot more quickly than I can make a salad, and I can’t take a salad in the car with me.

So on days when I am too busy for breakfast or am running late for an afternoon appointment a snack smoothies I can take five minutes to blend up a smoothie.

This Mango Avocado Smoothie is a tasty treat that works well as a snack or an easy breakfast or lunch. The tropical mango flavor blends with the smooth avocado for a match that is made in heaven. This creamy green treat has only five basic ingredients and includes no added sweetener.

Dairy Free Smoothie

I prefer to make smoothies that are dairy free. This smoothie uses avocado to make the smoothie creamy without any milk or yogurt. I also use orange juice as a liquid in this smoothie which just adds to the tropical flavor.

How to Make a Mango Avocado Smoothie

This smoothie couldn’t be much easier to make. Simple pour the orange juice into a blender and then add the mango, avocado, spinach, mint and ice. Then blend it all until it is well mixed.

The mango and the orange juice make for a sweet smoothie that doesn’t need any added sweetener to taste amazing. If I have fresh mint I like to add a few leaves to this green smoothie to give it a slightly minty taste.

The spinach combines with the avocado give the smoothie its pretty green color. The spinach not only adds color, it also makes the smoothie even more nutritious. And even if you aren’t a fan of smoothies with greens in them don’t worry – the flavor of the spinach is overwhelmed by the other ingredients, so you really can’t taste it at all.

Should I use fresh or frozen fruit in my smoothie?

Either fresh or frozen fruit will work well in a smoothie, with slight recipe modifications. For this smoothie I used a fresh mango and added some ice. But you could easily make it with frozen mango and reduce the amount of ice or skip it altogether. Using either ice or frozen fruit makes the smoothie frothier and thicker. I like my smoothies thick and creamy!

Why use Avocados in Smoothies?

Avocado is the key ingredient in making this smoothie. If you have never made a smoothie with avocado before it might seem strange, but give it a try because it tastes amazing. I love to use avocados in smoothies like this one and my strawberry avocado smoothie recipe. The key reasons for including avocado:

  • It makes a creamy smoothie without yogurt. I am just not a big fan of yogurt in smoothies and avocado is one of the best ways to give smoothies a silky, smooth texture without using yogurt.
  • The taste of the avocado is very subtle and disappears into the smoothie, especially when you include fruit in your smoothie. So even for this smoothie which has 1/2 an avocado you don’t feel like drinking a big glass of avocado. The avocado enhances the other flavors but doesn’t overwhelm them.
  • Avocados include lots of heart healthy monounsaturated fats along with vitamins, potassium and fiber and more. Many people consider avocado a superfood.
  • Avocado smoothies are filling, so they make a more substantial meal or snack. This smoothie makes a satisfying snack that will stay with you for hours.

Smoothie Recipe Options

There are lots of ways you could change up this mango green smoothie if you are looking for something a little different.

  • Replace the spinach with kale – kale is very nutritious and this smoothie is a great way to sneak it in without really being able to taste it.
  • Leave out the mint if you aren’t a fan of minty flavor
  • Add some flax seed or chia seeds to increase the nutrients in the smoothie
  • Add some protein powder if you want to make this a more of a complete meal replacement smoothie

Now that spring is here smoothies make a delicious an ice cold drink on sunny, warm days. The tropical flavor of this mango green smoothie makes it a refreshing drink for anyone in the family.

  1. That’s some great protein! Was it hard to blend the mango? I always seem to have a hard time cutting up mangoes because they seem so hard!

  2. Okay…. This looks both delicious and terrifying. Have you ever switched out another fruit for the mango? I’m not a big mango person, but I love the idea of a smoothie not using yogurt (because yuck!) and am intrigued about the idea of using an avocado. I do however like me some guacamole so this could work.

  3. I have to try the avocado trick, I usually use yogurt. I do have to say though I have difficulties with the green color when adding spinach to my smoothies, it’s strange…

  4. Yum! This looks really good! I only use greek yogurt in my smoothie if I’m out of protein powder (I like the extra protein) but I really like the way the avocado gives that creamy texture. I’m def. going to have to try this recipe, thanks!!! Pinned

  6. I’m a smoothie recipe collector! 🙂 This one looks and sounds delicious. Mango is one of my favorite fruits, but although I’ve seen smoothie recipes with avocado, I haven’t tried one yet. I’m looking forward to giving this one a try. Thanks for sharing. Pinning!

  8. It’s interesting to read some of the comments, avocado has been used along with other fruita and vegetables for centuries outside of the USA.
    My guess is that people le are just starting to discover and experience the great food combinations that the rest of the world has to offer

  11. I make mango avocado smoothies often but never use a juice because I prefer to keep the sugar content to a minimum! My liquid choice is unsweetened almond or cashew milk.
