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)

  2. Catherine lennon says:

    Currently participating in the 10 day Rawster challenge , generally I don’t like coconut water , there are substitutes offered for all ingredients throughout the challenge however my OCD means following the challenge to the exact haha I was surprised, first mouthful I found refreshing and I could taste a hint of the coconut water l I enjoyed the smoothie however and thought next time I would make it without coconut water after the challenge , by the third mouthful however the refreshing burst kicked in and the taste was amazing, I pre-judged this fruity delight and will definitely stick to the recipe if I make again.
    A lovely summer carnival of goodness in my mouth .

  3. Cynthia says:

    I love mango!! So good.

  4. Birgit says:

    It was tasty, but I didn’t like the texture (my blender has a problem with oranges)

  5. Sandra S says:

    This smoothie had a bright citrus flavor.

  6. sarah says:

    Love this smoothie. It taste like the tropics!

  7. KayLyn Fox says:

    I really loved this smoothie. Made it a meal replacement by adding rolled oats and almond butter. So yummy!!

  8. Beth says:

    Misjudged how much frozen mango I had when I started the challenge so I had to substitute peaches for mango in this recipe. It was still delicious though! Looking forward to trying this as it is supposed to be though and will be getting more mango soon.

  9. Tammy Verhulst says:

    Making sure I rated this recipe. I know I have commented already.

  10. Yvonne says:

    Yummie smoothie-love the orange citrus flavor and I will make this one again!

  11. Krista says:

    Love the coconut water in this smoothie, great combination with the fruit, It is incredibly refreshing and will make it a lot!

  12. CJ says:

    Nice fresh flavor. I used OJ instead of the orange.

  13. Marcie says:

    Really liked the combination of flavors in this one. I’ll definitely be making this one again!

  14. Monique King says:

    It was good but not a huge fan of the orange . May have been the actual orange that I added – it didn’t add any flavor in my opinion.

  15. Fiona Gough says:

    It was nice but I think I was expecting more mango flavour.

  16. Patti says:

    Enjoyed the flavor combination of this smoothie!

  17. Kimberly Felton says:

  19. Lmtorres says:

    This was quite tasty

  20. Jess says:

    Love this combination! Yet another kid-approved smoothie! Thank you!

  21. Deanna Perlmutter says:

    Mango madness was superb! The coconut water definitely added a twist to this drink. The orange, mango, & banana were perfect together. This combination made me feel like I was on vacation!

  22. Astrid Carreras says:

    Well I decided since it was suggested to turn this smoothie into a meal replacement added rolled oats and since I did not have almond butter in the pantry decided to substitute with organic peanut butter smooth. It is a game changer adding this two ingredients first flavour wise turns into even more delicious and second it is really feeling with out the food coma after.
    Great Idea thank you rawkstar club.

  23. Kimberly says:

    So yummy!! A quick escape to an island. Yum!

  24. Kimberly says:

    So yummy and takes me to an island!

  25. Leasa says:

    Not my favorite. It left an aftertaste.

  26. Melody says:

    One of my favorites! Love the combo of mango and orange!

  27. Christine says:

    Very good & yummy!

  28. Amelia says:

    I think this smoothie would taste better for me if I would of remembered coconut water in my grocery list lol

  29. France says:

    Added some hemp seeds and coconut oil as a post workout drink. Loved the flavor, didn’t like the orange skins. Will have to find nicer oranges 😀

  30. Efef Salem Wood says:

    Made it this morning. Very refreshing. I’m a day behind. So I will try to catch up and make day six smoothie for my nighttime snack if I feel hungry.

  31. Zohra says:

    The flavors of this smoothie were delicious, I use frozen fruit, so it ended up being a little thicker than other (frozen fruit) smoothies. Would definitely try again but with a little less frozen fruit next time.

  32. Estella says:

    Feeling healthy with my daily smoothie….. so far they have been good.

  33. Ann says:

    Orange had continually been refreshing in smoothies.

  34. Raquel says:

    Mango orange – Yum!!! Great tasting smoothie

  35. AnnMarie says:

    Loved it. Felt like I was on a tropical vacation.

  36. Patrice says:

    Day 5 – Mango Madness. I really enjoyed this one. The flavor was good, only 1/2 an orange. Love the coconut water. Also was feeling a cold coming on. After my smoothie and my multivitamin…All gone!!!

  37. Naomi says:

    This one was the best one for me. We went back to work after a two week winter break and this smoothie took me up to lunch. No hunger pains
    from being off schedule.

  38. Joy says:

    Perfection!

  39. Liane Oelke says:

    Just love it..one of my favs, beside the one with avocado and mango, the berry one…and one of my go to right now is the weight loss smoothie ..thanks for the recipes
    Liane

  40. Diana says:

    Withbthe ingredients Inused it was not bad. I substituted some frozen cranberries, frozen strawberries and an avacado for the mango, banana and orange. I also added some raw cauliflower and celery. I used less fruit and more vegetables. I used Organic super greens(spinach, kale, swiss chard and mizuna) in place of the spinach.
    I added some cinnamon, MCT oil and a little NuttZo butter, 1 teaspoon Matcha, 1 Tablespoon full fat Greek yogurt.
    It

  41. Helen Thadathil says:

    This one like. Ingeridients easy to find and smooth.

  42. Frances says:

    This smoothie contains my two favourite fruits: mango and banana! I loved it.

  43. Nelleke Beats says:

    The orange flavor really mixed it up. Tasted like a morning drink

  44. Kate says:

    It was good.

  45. Susan Garcia says:

    This was good, but still a bit sweet for me. I used kale instead of spinach and I added mint and a turmeric smoothie cube. I need to add more vegies or back off on the fruit.

  46. Jan Hickey says:

    This one was good tho I didn’t have coconut water so I used plain water. I think it would have been better with the coconut water.
    Half way thru this challenge. How is everyone doing?

  47. Bethany says:

    Another great smoothie, especially with coconut water. My husband and I have been drinking one everyday. They are great with cacao nibs. Day 2 I added protein powder and it was excellent. There are no bad smoothies.

  48. Tammy Verhulst says:

    This one has been one of the best thus far.

  49. Tammy Verhulst says:

    This one tasted better than the last few.

  50. Sheri says:

    This is one of my favorites. It takes me straight to a warm, sandy beach!

  51. Rebecca says:

    Super good! Was very enjoyable

  52. KP says:

    This smoothie was delicious. I added 2Tbs coconut oil and 4Tbs chia. It was wonderfully tropical.

  53. Roxanne Villaluz says:

    This was a really yummy recipe! I had a bag of mystery citrus & I ended up using a blood orange instead of an orange. That blood orange really added an extra layer of yum.

  54. doris says:

    this is the sweetest one I’ve had since day one.

  55. Michelle says:

    I cheated and added more mangoes just because I love them and with the coconut water which is good natural hydration for our bodies just hit the spot for me. I also like that even with the extra mangoes it wasn’t sweet.

  56. Dora Suarez says:

    Loving this recipe I can really taste the mango & absolutely no hint of citrus (I froze the orange). This makes it a winner for me, adding to my keeper list.

  57. sherri says:

    My favorite by far.

  58. Nickie says:

    All four of my kids did Not like this one. I don’t think they like the tropical flavor of it.
    I like it but I don’t love it.

  59. Greg says:

    Very good but I am wondering about how much sugar is in these smoothies since we are using so much fruit.

    • SGS Rawkstar Jess says:

      Greg, if you’re concerned about the amount of natural sugar in your smoothie, you can flip the ratio of greens to fruit. 🙂

  60. Laura Allison says:

    I’m a sucker for anything remotely tropical. Beginners lunch m and this one is definitely at the top.

  61. Cindy says:

    Day 5 Best yet! I added protein powder. Energized me for the morning.

  62. Marie says:

    Made this for dinner last night. Love the flavors. My husband and teenage daughter loved the smoothie.

  63. FNU says:

    Great and delicious! I loved it and also did replace banana with avocado

  64. Cindy A says:

    Love the combination of flavors!! This one’s a keeper!!

  65. Melissa Chiappone says:

    This one was pretty good. I do love citrus in my smoothies, so I’m sure that helped. I’m not a fan of mango. I did add some chia seed to this one to super food it up!

  66. Dianna Ebright says:

    I enjoyed this smoothie very much. I made sure to remove the skin from the orange this time. Put it in my pretty peacock feather tervis and took is shopping with me.

  67. Jennifer A says:

    Made recipe as is with no changes or additions. Great smoothie…fruity and delicious!

  68. Leslie says:

    Great smoothies. I added coconut yogurt and made it even a smoother. Also, ran out of spinach and used kale.

  69. Sandy says:

    I love this smoothie, except for peeling the orange and having half of it left over. I saw that others were using Mandarins, so I am going to try that the next time I make it. I love the flavor, though. I can’t eat oranges straight, but had no trouble with it blended in a smoothie, especially with mango. I love mango!

  70. Marie-Claude LAFLEUR says:

    Quite a runner that one! I think it may even surpass the Beginner’s Luck as for taste, for me!! Love mangos, more than pineapples ! And with a kale cube added, it added a touch of freshness that was welcomed!

  71. Atlanta says:

    I had to sub water for coconut water and kale for spinach plus I added glow protein powder. Delicious!

  72. Hilgay says:

    Mangos are my all-time favourite fruit! So there was a pep in my step today as I drank my mango madness smoothie. Whohoo !! I use frozen mangos from Costco and they are excellent !

  73. Robert Bowen says:

    This one was good, but not my favorite so far. I added kale, used regular water (don’t like the taste of coconut anything), mandarines instead of orange. My mango didn’t ripen up like I had hoped so didn’t have as much sweetness so this could have affected the overall taste. I do like the combo of ingredients. Will try again with a nicely ripened mango.

  74. Sonya says:

    I didn’t realize that coconut water expires within 24hrs so I had to use regular water. It wasn’t the best.

  75. Carrie O says:

    We all really enjoyed this one. I love the orange/mango/banana combo!!

  76. Kimberly Watt says:

    Oops I didn’t rate it

  77. Kimberly Watt says:

    Yes… so green and full of goodness! Loved it!

  78. Jeannine Klemm says:

    Day Five. Yes, I really loved how the orange shined through this smoothie. It was just a touch of sweet. I really like how smooth it is and how refreshing it is.

  79. Debi says:

    This was the best smoothie yet on this challenge! We added Chia seeds however you could not take them. We are making this smoothie again and again.
    Thank you!

  80. April Koebcke says:

    Really good, as usual . I really love when they are a pretty green color.

  81. Julie says:

    Really yummy! The entire family liked this one!

  82. Mary Middleton says:

    Day 5’s mango madness smoothie is a winner! I used a mandarin vs orange & turned it into a meal replacement by adding 2 tbls chia seeds & 1 tbls coconut oil. Very filling!

  83. Sherry Villeneuve says:

    I would give this one more stars if I could.
