Summer is finally here and we love nothing more than starting the day with a refreshing fruit smoothie like this mango raspberry smoothie. This plant-based smoothie recipe features frozen fruit, chia seeds, and orange juice for a thick and frosty, but flavor-packed smoothie.
If you have been reading the blog for a while, you know I love starting my morning with a smoothie! This mango raspberry smoothie is my current go-to smoothie recipes. As the temperatures rise, this smoothie just sounds so refreshing on a hot summer day that I keep coming back to it.
If you love raspberries in your smoothie, you’ll also love my vegan lemon raspberry smoothie recipe! This one sneaks in a serving of vegetables with some frozen cauliflower. (Trust me – you can’t even taste it!)
Why You’ll Love this Recipe
The frozen mango in this smoothie makes it taste like a refreshing tropical treat! Enjoy this raspberry mango smoothie paired with some toast for a healthy & delicious breakfast or whip it up for an afternoon snack.
In addition to fiber, the fruit in this smoothie (mango, raspberries, and banana) also provides a variety of chronic disease fighting antioxidants.
This healthy recipe is vegan, gluten free, dairy free, and made with no added sugar. Make it nut free as well by using both soy milk and soy based yogurt.
Ingredients You’ll Need
Frozen Mango: we like to use frozen mango chunks both for convenience, but it also makes a thicker smoothie texture. You can use fresh mango in this smoothie if you prefer.
Frozen Raspberries: we love frozen fruit in this smoothie, but you can use fresh berries instead if that is what you have on hand.
Banana: fresh or frozen ripe bananas work well for this recipe.
Orange Juice: a little bit of fresh squeezed orange juice brightens up all the flavors in this smoothie. You can also use store-bought orange juice OR substitute with a couple tablespoons of lemon or lime juice.
Milk: I prefer to use unsweetened soy milk in smoothies since it has 8 grams of protein per cup, but you can use any non-dairy milk that you like such as: almond milk, oat milk, or even coconut milk.
Yogurt: To make this vegan, use a non-dairy yogurt made with soy, coconut, or almonds. I really like the plant-based yogurt from Siggi’s since it has added protein.
Chia Seeds: I have a whole post about some of the health benefits of chia seeds but suffice it to say – they are a great way to add extra nutrients to a smoothie! For this recipe, you’ll add about a tablespoon of chia seeds for extra fiber and omega 3 fat. If you don’t have chia seeds, you can leave them out or substitute with flax seeds or hemp seeds.
How to Make a Mango Raspberry Smoothie
To make this delicious smoothie, add all of your ingredients to a high speed blender and puree until smooth. If using frozen fruit, you may need to add a splash of milk if it is too thick to blend.
Make it extra thick: I use only frozen fruit for this smoothie because I love when they are thick and frosty without having to add ice. If you use fresh fruit, it will be thinner but just as delicious!
Make a green smoothie: Feel free to add a handful of fresh or frozen greens to this simple recipe before blending for an extra serving of veggies. It won’t be a pretty pink, but it will still be good for you.
Add more protein: if you want to add more protein to this smoothie, feel free to throw in a scoop of your favorite plant-based protein powder or a spoonful of nut butter like cashew butter or almond butter.
What fruit can I mix with mango?
There are so many different fruits that pair well with mango! We add raspberries and banana to this smoothie which both pair well with mango. Other fruits that taste great with mango include: pineapple,
I don’t like banana, can I use something else?
Yes! You can replace the banana with 1/3 cup frozen cauliflower rice, 1/2 avocado, or an extra 1/3 cup plain vegan yogurt.
