Mango Orange Smoothie

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. Our Mango Orange Smoothie swaps pineapple for an orange and coconut water for plain water. It might be hard to choose the favorite between both smoothies…

What Are The Health Benefits of Coconut Water?

Coconut water and coconut milk are two different things. The milk is extracted from the fibrous white “meat.” Coconut water is the sweet, nectar-like liquid from inside the coconut. Pick up a coconut and shake it – that’s the coconut water. It is typically produced from young, green coconuts when it’s at its sweetest. But if you buy a coconut at the grocery store, you can totally drill some holes in the shell and strain out the liquid inside.

Coconut water is a great way to help replenish lost electrolytes after exercising or spending time outside in the heat. I like using coconut water in my post-run green smoothies. During World War II, coconut water was even used in place of standard IV fluids to help prevent dehydration.

Coconut water is often referred to as “nature’s gatorade” because it is hydrating and high in potassium, sodium, and magnesium, electrolytes which can become depleted after intense exercise and perspiring. Those three minerals are essential for muscle and heart function. One 8 ounce serving also contains 5% RDV of calcium and 3% of DV of protein. Drinking coconut water can help prevent muscle cramping.

Plus coconut water tastes great. It’s naturally sweet and pairs nicely with tropical fruits. Choose an unsweetened coconut water that is free from unnecessary preservatives and additives.

The Importance of Vitamin A in a Healthy Diet

Orange fleshed fruits and vegetables are naturally high in beto carotene, the precursor to vitamin A (also known as retinol). Beta carotene makes up about 50% of the vitamin A essential for a healthy diet. Vitamin A helps keep skin, mucus membranes, the immune system, and eyes healthy.

One 1 cup serving of mango provides 35% the recommended amount of vitamin A, and 1 cup of raw spinach contains 56%.

How Much Vitamin C is Recommended Daily?

Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, is a water-soluble vitamin. Every time you visit the restroom, you excrete any excess vitamin C your body hasn’t used. That’s why it’s important to eat food rich in vitamin C daily which not a hard task because loads of fruits, vegetables, and leafy greens are loaded with the big C.

The recommended amount of vitamin C for the average adult is 90 milligrams for men and 75 mg for women. Because it is excreted throughout the day, it’s hard to overdose on vitamin C, but large doses (especially from extra supplements) can cause stomach upset and diarrhea. The body simply cannot store more vitamin C than it can use.

Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant which helps prevent cellular damage due to free radicals. Free radicals form as our bodies convert food into energy. The same antioxidant properties are also important for healthy skin. Those free radicals can cause damage and wrinkles. (So can too much sun – use sunscreen!) Studies also show evidence that vitamin C may lower the risk of certain cancers.

While vitamin C deficiencies are seemingly rare these days, it can cause problems such as scurvy. Those with certain chronic diseases, malabsorption disorders, smokers, and those without access to a variety foods are the most at risk for deficiency. (source)

  1. Catherine Nantel says:

    Delicious and smooth – can’t taste the spinach at all which almost doesn’t feel like drinking a green smoothie.

  2. Lisa says:

    This smoothie was delicious! I love tropical fruits and this was perfect! Definitely making this one again!

  3. Christina says:

    Loved this smoothie. I was skeptical when I saw coconut water in the ingredient list this week, as I do not like coconut, but I gave it a try. I was pleasantly surprised that there was no strong coconut flavor!

  4. Liz says:

    AMAZING! Just do it, this was delish, I ran out of coconut water so had to do 1/2 water and it was still awesome!

  5. Julie says:

    Mango & orange are a great combo!

  6. Beth says:

    Love love loved this combo! Definitely going in to my smoothie rotation!

  7. Beth says:

    Absolutely loved this recipe!!! I would never think to put mango and orange together.

  8. Meagan says:

    I found this to be quite yummy. I knew it would be a sweet smoothie so I subbed cauliflower for the banana and was really happy with the flavor!

  9. Anita says:

    Five stars with adaptations tasted just right

  10. Heather says:

    YUM! This smoothie is so delightful!! Our banana was so small so I threw in an extra one. Can’t have too much banana. 🙂

  11. AshleeT says:

    This drink is what dreams are made of. It is so, so, so incredibly good!! Side note for those having trouble blending oranges: I was using a fairly decent blender from a big box store but it just could not do oranges. It would never blend oranges down to a smooth consistency. I recently took the plunge and bought a Kitchen Aid high performance blender. Holy mother of Pete, is that thing awesome!! It blends oranges down to the smoothest texture ever. It’s like sipping a cloud.

  12. Philippa Stewart says:

    I thought this smoothie had great flavor. I seem to have a hard time with blending the oranges into a smooth consistency so the smoothie was a bit chunky but tasted good!

  13. Kathryn says:

    This one really took me by surprise. I’m not usually a big fan of oranges in my smoothies, but yum! I love to add some greek yogurt in there as well for a boost of creaminess and protein! Love rawkin’ these green smoothies everyday!

  14. Tanya says:

    I liked this one so much, I made it twice! I liked the frozen mango!

  15. Terry says:

    This was a very tasty smoothie. I will definitely have this again.

  16. Sheera says:

    Love love love this smoothie
    Can’t get enough

  17. Jackie says:

    This was really tasty only my tummy felt a little off afterwards but soon subsided!
    Still getting used to the greens I guess! Used one cup of coconut water as I usually
    buy the 520ml cans and seeing as we’re using it again would like to finish it off the second
    day so it doesn’t get stale.

  18. Linda Thompson says:

    Ran out of mango so substituted frozen peaches

  19. Linda says:

    Ran out of mango so substituted frozen peaches

  20. Lindsay Rodriguez says:


  21. Pam says:

    This has been my favourite so far. Such a lovely colour too.

  22. Tiffany says:

    I loved this one with the coconut water!

  23. Debbie says:

    I’m mad about this mango smoothie! Thanks for making it easy simple green smoothies to kick start better health in 2019!

  24. Julie Fialho says:

    Yesss this one is so yummy! Love the combo of coconut water, orange and mango. I added a touch of honey and vanilla protein powder – I can drink this all day!

  25. Sheryl says:

    I used fresh orange juice instead of an orange and skip the coconut. Despite the substitutions this was fantastic!

  26. Erica says:

    Another good one…I added a tablespoon of coconut oil and 2 tablespoons of course I send and it kept me full all morning!

  27. Shari Cortez says:

    Oranges are my least favorite fruit but boy, this smoothie changed my mind about that!
    Creamy and refreshing. Definitely on my list to drink on the regular

  28. Holly says:

    I really enjoyed this smoothie! Not overly sweet, just right. I’m sharing with my toddler daily and he has loved them all! Time to blend him his own!

  29. Heather says:

    Nice light smoothie, tasty and refreshing! I used the cars cars oranges I purchased at Costco. So good!

  30. Tina says:

    This smoothie is perfectly light and refreshing. My kids loved it! A keeper recipe for sure.

  31. smita says:

    Love it – besides Mango is just the best fruit ever! and combined with the sweetness of the navel oranges … Oh sooo awesome !!!

  32. Neal says:

    Lovely glowing green ! Used plain water as I had no coconut water to hand. And replaced the orange with pineapple as was at work and didnt have time to peel and slice an orange. Was delicious.

  33. Elizabeth says:

    This was very tasty!!

  34. Cory R says:

    Loved this one! One of my favorites so far! Very refreshing!

  35. Annia says:

    Madness indeed.

  36. Darla Dale says:

    This was one of our favorites! Looking forward to to the orange julius tomorrow 🙂

  37. Nancy Zuchowski says:

    Smooth and refreshing. Love the blend of orange, mango and banana. This will be one of my regular smoothies as I almost always have oranges, mangos and bananas around.

  38. Jen L. says:

    I liked the orange and mango flavors, but I didn’t care for the tang of the coconut water. I’ll have to try it again with just water instead!

  39. Jennifer Maldonado says:

    I love this one too. I have been a little hesitant to use coconut water in the past but this was delicious.

  40. Katie says:

    I love orange! Delicious.

  41. Chilly says:

    I use frozen mangos . I really loves mangos it’s juciy in smoothie it’s sooo delicious! My favorite!!!!!

  42. Liz says:

    ugh I HATE mangoes. But let me tell you, this smoothie was to die for! I could definitely use every day. #gimmesomespinach

    • SGS Rawkstar Carissa says:

      Hey Liz,

      That is so great that even though you hate mangoes you still gave it a try and loved it!!


  43. Marlee says:

    Frozen Mango was sold out at my co-op so I replaced it with peaches. I tasted more of the spinach than I would have liked, but all and all a good afternoon snack.

  44. Stephanie Nicholson says:

    Loved this one! I actually left out the orange this time and added a little extra mango and the texture was amazing. The coconut water adds a whole extra layer of flavor and texture that I love! Enjoying the tropics even in the winter with this one.

  45. Jade says:

    A perfect blend of mango and orange! Felt like I was drinking and island drink on the beach 🙂 I loved it and will totally add this to my smoothie rotation.

  46. Nancy says:

    Live this recipe! In love with green smoothies!

  47. Antoinette says:

    So delicious! Can’t wait to make it again!

  48. Monica says:

    I Liked it , but it reminded me a little of orange bang. If you like orange bang then you’ll probably like this one.

    • SGS Rawkstar Carissa says:

      Hey Monica,

      I know exactly what you are talking about and it does taste the same!!

  49. Cecily says:

    I loved this one, a keeper for sure! I got half my family to drink this one! Yeah!

  50. Nicole says:

    This is my favorite thus far. I will be making this one on all the free style days – unless I find another fav 🙂

  51. Moira Guthrie says:

    This is definitely one of my favorites! I love the tropical flavors of this smoothie!

  52. Karina Bak says:

    One of my favorite recipes!

  53. Jesika McAteer says:

    Very tropical tasting. We did not have coconut water so mixed a tsp of coconut oil to warm water, worked well. Children loved it. Definitely strong coconut flavor (but maybe because I used oil instead?)

    • SGS Rawkstar Carissa says:

      Hey Jesika,

      If the coconut was too strong then you can always use water instead of adding the coconut water.

      Coconut tends to have a strong taste for some so if you are not a fan it is perfectly fine to leave that out! 🙂

  54. Molly says:


  55. LoLa says:

    I’m fortunate enough to live in the tropics and have fresh mango from my garden and coconuts are abundant! This is one of my favorite smoothie combinations. Cheers!

  56. Jennifer Jacobs says:

    Made this yesterday for the whole family! The color is lovely and it was sweet and creamy. My kids even liked it!

  57. Cecilia Anderson says:

    Made this for my mom and I yesterday and we both loved it! She’s not much of a smoothie person, so I’m excited she liked this!

  58. Marilyn says:

    This one was good so I am back to loving the smoothies. Neither of the fruits is overpowering and comes out tasty.

  59. Emily Pyatt says:

    I love this smoothie!! It is a morning burst and wakes me up!

  60. Michelle says:

    One of my favorites so far! Super refreshing. I had pineapple infused coconut water so I used that instead of plain…tropical perfection!

  61. Courtney Wells says:

    I love this one…. I have all the recipes from Green Smoothie challenges prior to this one and have scoured it to find my weekend free for alls! This one will definitely go in the book. I have done this challenge several times but, this is my hubby’s first time- be is totally sold! With one this tasty he has zero complaint !!! Thanks for the yummy!!!!

  62. Emily says:

    I’m not a big mango fan, but this smoothie was great!

  63. Kellyann Mitchell says:

    I loved this one! I wasn’t going to bother buying mango but I am so glad I did. This one was so refreshing.

    • SGS Rawkstar Carissa says:

      Hey Kellyann,

      Glad you went for it and bought the mango!! It is the most refreshing fruit in my opinion =D

  64. Kirsten Leniger says:

    Really enjoyed this one; way more than I thought I would. I’ll be making it again, but blending the oranges first to strain out the pulp, then blending the spinach and banana after that.

  65. Steph says:

    I really liked this smoothie – I subbed out mango for pineapple due to allergies, and found it to be very fresh and citrus-y. Still not as good as Berry Blast, but I will definitely make this again!

    • SGS Rawkstar Carissa says:

      Hey Steph,

      Great way to substitute the mango for pineapple. I bet it was delicious =P

  66. Monique G says:

    I loved it! It was smooth and was tasty.

  67. Sue says:

    Decided to take a break from spinach and instead used a blend of super greens. Kale, chard, mizuna & spinach. Had a little stronger taste of “green” but blended with the orange, mango & banana it was just a delicious as if I only used spinach. A good blend of fruits & veggies.

  68. Dora Suarez says:

    I’m not a fan of oranges in my smoothies as they turn out to pulpy (maybe I’ll have to try blending my orange then straining), so I used 1c of liquid and subbed 1/2c of pineapple in place of the orange. Delightful 5-Stars with this modification.

    Please suggest how to deal with pulp when using standard blender with green smoothie setting.

    • SGS Rawkstar Carissa says:

      Hey Dora,

      I would try blending the orange and the liquid first. That way it will blend through the pulp much better than adding it at the end.

      Hope that helps!

  69. Carolyn Oates says:

    I admit I was not eager for this morning’s smoothie as I dislike mango! Well, I was very happily surprised by the flavor this smoothie offered. I added a little Nutiva protein powder(plant based) and a little almond butter so it would hold me until lunchtime. It was really refreshing and flavorful. I am loving this challenge as I was in a rut and had been drinking the same couple smoothie recipes all week. Loving this new variety of ingredients,

    • SGS Rawkstar Carissa says:

      Hey Carolyn,

      I am so happy that this recipe surprised you! That is why I loved this challenge so much because you get to try so many new recipes that you wouldn’t normally go for.


  70. Elizabeth says:

    I love love love this smoothie….but don’t you dare make it with a banana past it’s prime – it loses all possible detection of the mango. I made sure to have perfect specimens for today’s blend-up and started off the week right!

    • SGS Rawkstar Carissa says:

      Hey Elizabeth,

      Oh no, that does not sound good if your banana over powered your mango! Glad you were able to figure out what was causing it and make it work for you 🙂

  71. Brittany Gibson says:

    Delicious!!! Really enjoyed this smoothie, great taste.

  72. Tanya says:

    Very good!

  73. Shannon says:

    Loved this one! It was a sweet treat.

  74. Monica says:

    I really liked this one… the only thing for me is that it felt too thick so I would add a it more coconut water next time… other than that it was absolutely delicious!! 10/10

  75. Patricia says:

    Had to add additional coconut water as the smoothie was super thick. Liked this one too!

    • SGS Rawkstar Carissa says:

      Hey Patricia,

      That is so great you were able to adjust it and make it work for you!

  76. Carol S. says:

    I could really taste the mango in this recipe. It’s one of my favorites. Next time I will have to add some protein and make it a meal

  77. Bethany Vines says:

    This was pretty good! I’m not a huge fan of banana or coconut water, but this was pretty good despite that. I tasted a little more of the banana than the other flavors. Next time I might try avocado instead, or more mango. I added some almond milk to thin it out and some flax and chia.

  78. Anita says:

    This smoothie was to much fruit sugars. The flavor was good and added flaxseed an coconut oil. Three stars

    • SGS Rawkstar Carissa says:

      Hey Anita,

      You can always swap the amount of fruit and veggies in your smoothie so that it is the perfect amount for you specifically!

      That way you will have less fruit added to your smoothie.


  79. Valerie W says:

    Liked the flavor with the coconut water.

  80. Audrey says:

    Didn’t have coconut water so used water. This is definitely one of my top 3 smoothie flavors! Am loving this challenge!

    • SGS Rawkstar Carissa says:

      Hey Audrey,

      Glad you made it your own by adding the water since you didn’t have the coconut water!

  81. Bonnie Good says:

    Added extra coconut water tonthin it out. Liked flavour of coconut

  82. Fosta Brown says:

    This ones a winner. Loved it. Adding it to my favorites # Green smoothie # 30 day Chellenge!

  83. Jada says:

    I loved this smoothie! Forgot coconut water at the store, so I used my filtered water. Still delicious! I will try again when I make it back to the store to get coconut water.

  84. Melissa Taylor says:

    I learned today I’m not a fan of coconut water. But other than that, loved the smoothie.

  85. Colette Friedt Eirich says:

    Loved the mango smoothie week 2 begins.

  86. Clare Skinner says:

    This is my favourite so far, didn’t have any coconut water so used plain old H2O. The ingredients blended easily and gave it a smooth consistency. It tasted great. Really enjoyed it was yummy

  87. Mireille says:

    Even though this isn’t one that I can have everyday due to it being so sweet, it is delicious! It’s really yummy with avocado added as well.

  88. Amber says:

    Love this smoothie

  89. Lina says:

    I loved this recipe- I will be honest I left out the banana because i can’t stand them, however the smoothie tasted amazing without it anyway- I tasted a lot more of the orange than i did the mango which I also love but delicious either way. I am so happy I decided to jump onboard!

  90. Robyn C says:

    Love this smoothie. Just the right amount of sweetness. And I love that this one calls for coconut water!

  91. Adriana says:

    Loved this one. I used almond milk instead of coconut water and it was super yummy!!

  92. Clare Jones says:


  93. Meagan says:

    I blended cauliflower in place of banana and it was so yummy. I can only imagine how yum with the banana! Win in my book

  94. Pam says:

    Loved the different taste that the coconut water gave…. definitely keen to use more of it

  95. Gayathri says:

    Mango is my favourite fruit and usually use it with banana for smoothies. I usually add a bit of low fat Greek yoghurt too. But I was reading the tips for smoothies as a meal replacement and noted the combination of ingredients for protein and healthy fats replacement, and there is no sign of yoghurt. Is there a reason for this?

  96. Ana says:

    Just love it

  97. Jessica says:

    This was a winner. I doubled the recipe for my husband and myself. We both enjoyed it.

  98. Christina says:

    Love mango juice, so this will be a good one.

  99. Christina says:

    Love mango juice so this will be a good one.

  100. grace says:

    Mango, banana and spinach are my to-go combo in my daily green smoothies – adding orange changes the flavor a bit but not too much, thank you for sharing!!!
