Take your tastebuds on a tropical journey with this mango orange smoothie. It’s no secret that I love mango… I could blend it in every smoothie. It’s one of the stars of our fool-proof Beginner’s Luck Smoothie. 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…

Green smoothie recipe with mango

Mango orange smoothie ingredients

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 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 Protein Smoothie Boost. This plant based, all organic powder will boost your smoothie by 10 grams of protein!

Mango orange smoothie 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!

  1. This one was so refreshing. I love the orange and mango together! Coconut water was new for me to use in a smoothie and I’ll be using it a lot more. Loved it!

  2. 5 stars
    This was a great smoothie! I made it on the last day of the challenge and added the alkaline veggie booster cubes so I could use fresh orange and mango (my preferred for these two fruits). I also added SGS protein smoothie booster. I wish I had read the swap about avocado for banana before I made the smoothie! Next time I will do that too.

  3. 5 stars
    Loved this one! I’ve never used coconut water in a smoothie and frankly never liked it on its own. This is a wonderful combination of flavours. I used a whole banana and a bit more than half a cup
    of mangos and a splash of orange juice

    Cannot go wrong with mango! I did not have coconut water, so used just regular water instead. I also added some protein powder and flax seeds. Halfway through the challenge and can’t wait for the next five!

    Really enjoyed this one, love the coconut water for electrolytes… Will probably pack this one for a snack between my work shifts since I have a very active/physical job
