Healthy Mango Smoothie


Packed with healthy fats, plant-based protein, and nutrient-rich fruit + leafy greens, this delicious smoothie is sure to keep your body going until your next snack or meal. What’s more, coconut oil is uniquely absorbed in the small intestine, providing the body with a more immediate form of energy rather than storing it for later. How cool is that?!

Healthy lifestyle starts with smoothies

This is truly the healthiest smoothie using mango if you’re trying to focus on your health. It’s the foundation to my day and helps curb my cravings. The key to using smoothies for a healthy lifestyle, is adding in leafy greens to slow down the absorption of the fruit sugars into your body. It’s also good to add healthy fats to help your body absorb the nutrients. Protein through cashews helps curb appetite and fuel your muscles.

Healthy Mango Smoothie

What are the health benefits of mango?

Mango is a healthy tropical fruit that is worth blending. The fiber, potassium, and high vitamin content in mangoes may help keep your arteries working properly and reduce the risk of heart disease.

There is a compelling 2014 study from Japan showing that carotenoid-containing fruits and vegetables (like mangoes!) may reduce the risk of colon cancer.

    Hi, my husband is allergy to peach, what can I replace it with?

    • SGS Rawkstar Amanda says:

      Hi Thanhthanh,

      Allergic to peach, I’ve got your husband covered! Some great swaps are nectarines, mango, and apricots. Ever need a quick swap? Make sure + take a peek at our Rawkstar Substitution Guide here…

    I love your smoothies! However, I have heard differing information about coconut oil, and have heard that it is one of the worst oils you can eat. Do you have any posts about the pros/cons of ingesting coconut oil? Thanks so much!

    • SGS Rawkstar Amanda says:

      Hi Mietra,

      Great question! I was actually just reading this article from the Huffington Post and they do a great job of going through the recent report from the American Heart Association and the benefits of coconut oil. Check it out here…

      • April says:

        Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI) is an organization of scientists who take no money from government or corporations. They just use scientific studies and expose who paid for them. Here’s their information on coconut oil: https://cspinet.org/tip/four-coconut-oil-myths-and-facts-you-should-know
        I think if your eating like any of the simple green restarts, coconut oil is a great addition. But if your drinking a bullet coffee, frying up a steak, and then adding a table spoon to your smoothie, your likely hurting your heart.
        Shame on the Huffington Post for such poor journalism. It’s reads more like a web blog and ignores real science.

      • SGS Rawkstar Amanda says:

        Hi April,

        Thank you for sharing. The health and wellness world can be confusing sometimes. One day its low fat, then it’s no fat, and then fat is good for you. So we love reading new articles and really getting to the root of our health, wellness, and food. Thanks again for sharing!

  4. Michelle Courtney Berry says:

    Just delish. I really licked the inside of my mason jar when I’d drained the smoothie. A definite go-to, pick-me-up and decadent-tasting richness without the fat and extras your body really doesn’t need. I second added frozen fruit. It really made me feel like I was eating ice cream!

  5. Nicole says:

    Perfect blend! Seriously, I have been drinking a “green” smoothie daily for last 4 years.y kids have no clue that they are drinking spinach/ or kale. Tip: Freeze fruit! It’s more of a frozen smoothie/ slushy. I love the cold bc it takes away from the thick texture. Trust me- you won’t be disappointed!

  6. Paula says:

    I have been blending SGS’s for years and this is my all time favorite!

  8. qwe says:

    ooks amazing! I bet the blended cashew

    • SGS Rawkstar Amanda says:

      Hi Qwe,

      The blended cashews make this recipe so thick + creamy – and offers a major protein boost too!

  9. Ernest says:

    I have not made this one yet, but it looks good. Although in my case. 71 yo male who is trying to gain 15-20 pounds, I find that all of the smoothie systems I have found are geared toward weight loss.

    Any suggestions?

    • SGS Rawkstar Amanda says:

      Hi Ernest,

      Looking to make gains instead of losses. Boost your smoothies with protein + healthy fats! Here are a few of our favorites…

      https://simplegreensmoothies.com/tips/green-smoothie-meal-replacement

      And FYI: you’ll see our post is about meal replacement. If you’re trying to gain weight, add these booster to your smoothie + have your smoothie along with your regular diet, instead of swapping out a meal.

      Hope this helps!

  10. AbBy says:

    Hi what can I add instead of nuts and coconut? I’m allergic to both

    • SGS Rawkstar Amanda says:

      Hi Abby,

      Allergic to coconut and nuts? No worries! My favorite swaps for this recipe are oats + avocado! They’re both super yummy and will give you a major protein + healthy fat boost.

  11. Krista Wooley says:

    This smoothie is delicious!! I definitely recommend going for the vanilla- it really finishes the smoothie off to taste like a cream! My cashews blended up perfectly with the rest of my ingredients in my Blendtec!

  12. Clara says:

    Personally, not a fan of this recipe. I soaked my cashews overnight and when I blended them it just turned out to be nasty and gritty. Plus, I don’t think the coconut oil helped the texture, and it really made my blender hard to clean. I would not make it again.

    • SGS Rawkstar says:

      Hi Clara,

      Blending nuts can sometimes be tough on lower power blenders. You can always swap them out for another plant-based protein you enjoy. Here are a few of our favorites…

  13. Elsie says:

    After tasting the other smoothies, I didn’t like this one very much.

  14. Kate says:

    I was unsure about this smoothie because of adding the coconut oil but it blended well and added a great taste.

  15. Lisa Dugery says:

    what would you recommend to replace the cashews if you cannot eat that type of nut?

  16. Irish Moore says:

    Can you also include protein powder for extra protein?

    • SGS Rawkstar says:

      Hi Irish,

      You definitely can! We love adding plant-based protein powder. One of our favorites is from The Natural Citizen. Check them out here…

    This smoothie looks amazing! I bet the blended cashews make it extra creamy 🙂
