How to make a mango smoothie?
It is absolutely easy to make a mango smoothie at home even if it is not mango season. In fact, to make an ultra thick, creamy mango smoothie you need to use frozen mango. Since you can easily find frozen mango in the frozen aisle of many grocery stores, you will be able to make a frozen mango smoothie at any time of the year. Then, you need a fresh ripe banana to enhance the sweetness and balance the light acidity of mango . Of course, you can use frozen banana too, but if you do, this will result more in a mango smoothie bowl. It will be thicker, close to mango whip and not easy to drink in a glass. Finally, the secret ingredients that make the best mango smoothie are a combination of dairy-free coconut yogurt and unsweetened vanilla almond milk. The combination of thick dairy-free coconut yogurt adds some creamy texture and vanilla brings out all the flavors of mango.
The best mango smoothie ingredients
So to make the best mango smoothie, with a thick texture, that is easy to drink from a glass or straw you need:
- Frozen mango chunks
- Ripe banana – fresh, not frozen or the mango smoothie would be too thick to drink with a straw.
- Dairy-free coconut yogurt – it is a vegan unsweetened yogurt made with only 2 ingredients; coconut cream and probiotics. If you can’t find this in your store, replace by dairy-free yogurt you like, coconut flavor is a must!
- Unsweetened vanilla almond milk – mango smoothies with almond milk are lighter in flavor and if you can find the unsweetened vanilla almond milk in store it will add an amazing hint of vanilla to your drink.
A dairy-free vegan smoothie
This vegan mango smoothie won’t be the same without the addition of dairy-free coconut yogurt. In fact, coconut yogurt is a healthy vegan yogurt made with only 2 natural ingredients: fresh coconut cream and probiotics. This secret ingredient not only adds creaminess, but also a delicious coconut flavor that make the most delicious mango coconut smoothie. If you are a true coconut lover, you can enhance the coconut flavor of this smoothie by replacing almond milk by coconut milk!
