This mango orange smoothie swaps pineapple for an orange and plain water for coconut water. With another easy winner, it might be hard to choose the fav between these two smoothies…

Mango Orange Smoothie Nutrition

This smoothie is a tropical oasis of flavor + nutrition. It’s got over 100% of the recommended daily value of vitamin C, as well as a great boost of fiber. Make sure to leave as much of the white pithe of the orange as you can when peeling… that’s where the fiber and many nutrients are located in an orange.

Lower sugar options

If the natural fruit sugar in this smoothie is a little high for you, then I’ve got some great swap options. Swap out 1/2 banana for 1/4 avocado. Avocado helps keep the smoothie creamy + add in healthy fat, while lowering the sugar level.

Peaches are a great swap for the mango in this mango orange smoothie, since they have a lower glycemic index (sugar level). Green smoothies are easily customized to your liking, so don’t be afraid to make some swaps or test new ingredients to get the perfect combo for your tastebuds + nutritional needs.

Coconut Water is Nature’s Gatorade

If you need some extra electrolytes in your diet, then this mango orange smoothie is for you! Studies show that coconut water does a great job replacing electrolytes after a long workout. I often take coconut water with me, or add it to my post workout smoothie. I want to make sure I’m refueling my body the right way, especially after a long run.

If you want to use this mango orange smoothie as a post-workout drink, then don’t forget to boost it with my protein powder recipe. This plant-based, all organic powder will boost your smoothie by 10 grams of protein!

Liquid Swaps

If coconut water just isn’t your thing, or you don’t have any on hand, then no worries! Here’s what I recommend as a liquid base for this mango orange smoothie:

  • Green tea
  • Water
  • Coconut milk in the refrigerated carton (not canned… it would be too thick for this recipe!)

No matter which base you choose, this smoothie will still give you amazing health benefits, as well as a great energy boost!

Healthy Mango Orange Smoothie

This healthy mango orange smoothie includes spinach, which adds a ton of nutrients and doesn’t affect the mango orange flavor. Coconut water is a great way to help replenish lost electrolytes post run. It’s often referred to as “nature’s gatorade” and pairs nicely with tropical fruits. This smoothie is also known as Mango Orange Madness.

    Nice ripe mango and orange taste comes through well but not over powering.
    Very good way to start the day.

  4. Delicious! I didnt have coconut water so just used plain water and Oh my goodness!!! So yummy!!

    This was is great! I love the banana and orange together. I added pineapple and avocado. I will surely make this one again!

    A favorite! Nice and light. I could see turning this into a refreshing popsicle.

  7. The Mango Orange Smoothie became a Pineapple Orange Smoothie for me (mango seems to be causing problems for me so I substituted pineapple). The coconut water was a great choice for the liquid. I’m finding that I prefer water or coconut water over almond or coconut milk. I also added a scoop of protein powder. I’m becoming used to and maybe even a bit fond of the bright green color!

    Mango Orange – substitution alert – I used papaya instead of orange. This one was yummy. I am definitely gravitating to the smoothies with the added creaminess from bananas. This had a nice flavor with no one flavor outdoing another. Delicious, one worth repeating if there weren’t so many more to try.

    This is my favorite so far. I kept the peel on the orange for an extra citrusy flavor. Really good!

  10. 5 stars
    Really tasty! I usually gravitate towards smoothie recipes with pineapple, but I’m finding that I really like the orange-y ones, too, especially when I leave at least a little peel on the oranges.

    Mangos are not my favorite, and some smoothies disguise them well. However this one did not. 🙁 It won’t be on my regular rotation. Chugged it down. For someone that likes mangos give it a try.
