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. Windy says:

    Mango goodness

  2. Annette says:

    Another great recipe! Loved it. Don’t even taste the mango. Sweet and spinachy!

  3. Sherry Villeneuve says:

    Double yummy!! Mango Orange is my second favorite of all after Beginner’s Luck. Coconut water is my go to liquid because it’s so hydrating so this one is a win.

  4. Katie says:

    Loved this one it was super refreshing.

  5. Cheryl P. says:

    Yum!! Great for the whole family as they loved the sweetness from the banana with the flavors of mango and orange! Definitely a keeper!

  6. Sue Garrard says:

    This Mango Madness day 5 smoothie was really good. This was my traveler’s smoothie. This weekend was spent getting three of my children back to college. It was a lot of driving and staying over at my sisters. I made last night at her house and grabbed it this morning as I left to drive back home, about a 5 hour drive. I was worried about the coconut water, because about 40 years ago I had some fresh from a just picked coconut and I didn’t like it. Since then I’ve avoided it but today I do drink it in the smoothie and I could taste it and guess what? I really like it. The smoothie was really good and a nice refresher for the drive home.

  7. K Bens says:

    This has been my favorite so far…5+ on the RawkStar rating!

  8. Ame W says:

    This is the perfect winter smoothie. All of the vitamin C will keep all those nasty bugs away. It was delicious and will for sure be a part of our smoothie rotation!

  9. Nicole says:

    Here for Rawkstar Bingo to rate Day 5 smoothie on the blog! 5/5! Delicious tropical taste!

  10. Amy says:

    Great smoothie. Loved the mango and coconut water…the coconut is just the right amount!

  11. Stephanie says:

    Swapped out mango for peaches. It was ok. Days 3 and 4 were our favorites so far.
    Can’t wait for next 5 days! Back to school tomorrow for all too so hopefully we can blend these in the morning quickly for all.

  12. Valerie says:

    Love this one! Feels tropical in this cold, windy New England weather

  13. Maxine Thomas says:

    Today, day five, I did Very Berry which was posted for day four. The color was not very appealing and the taste not my favorite.

  14. Sandra McGuire says:

    Super yummy. I added a piece of kale and went with plain water rather than the coconut water since this is a sweet one. But we loved it. Definitely one to go back to. Especially this winter.

  15. Melinda N says:

    Probably my second favorite smoothie. Oddly, I don’t like mango on its own, but something about it in smoothies works for me.

  16. Joy Spencer says:

    Loved this smoothie! Each one seems to be better than the last! Looking forward to the next 5 days.
    (Added a small amount of hemp hearts and flax seeds). After reading other comments about bloating etc., I will add some turmeric and ginger in upcoming smoothies.
    This whole blog is full of fantastic tips and information!

  17. Mary says:

    A+++++
    So refreshing!!!

  18. Mary Anderson says:

    Didn’t like this one as much as the others.

  19. Leah says:

    A nice tropical feel and tasty too!

  20. Mary says:

    This mango and orange combo is delicious!!

  21. Camille Maxfield says:

    We took the orange out so that it would be more Mango cream. Another lovely day with greens. I also tried a savory veggie only.

  22. Sheri Fry says:

    Yum! I love mango.

  23. Tammy says:

    This was good. I had to substitute the orange for additional mango and a little extra banana. I would make this again

  24. Angie M says:

    Day 5 Mango Madness, this is so delicious, I added kale, chia seeds, flax meal and cilantro!

  25. Vicky says:

    I liked this but I will use less banana as it seems to take over the taste

  26. Caroline says:

    Next time I will not add the banana to enjoy the mango and orange taste more.

  27. Lisa L says:

    Someone had finished off all the mango, so I had to sub peaches. I loved the tropical flavor and can’t wait to try it with mango. This was the first smoothie my son tried, and he liked it, too.

  28. Nidia Gago says:

    So good, mango goodness

  29. Pam T says:

    Yummy! It was a refreshing drink.

  30. Laura White says:

    Liked this one! Even better than beginners luck. Sweet and tropical. YUM!

  31. Kelsey says:

    Loved it! My new favorite!!

  32. Meagan says:

    My kiddos drank this down so fast. It was a win for sure. We also added ginger

  33. Leesa says:

    Modified slightly, I did not add banana and I doubled the mango. ABSOLUTELY my favorite so far. I am going to do this again and add a stalk of celery.

  34. Jeanette says:

    I loved this smoothie. So refreshing!

  35. Karole T says:

    This is a winner. Loved the sweetness of the tropical fruit taste

  36. Carol Jel says:

    Nice! Light, fruity, pretty color.

  37. EricaRuth says:

    Very good… In a hurry so I used a whole cutie instead of half an orange and turned into a meal with coconut oil and chia seeds.

  38. Audrey says:

    This one was ok. I didn’t have enough mango left so it didn’t taste as sweet.

  39. Marie Davino says:

    Another yummy smoothie. Not too sweet, added kale and it changed the taste from the last four but so worth it!

  40. Deborah says:

    After this mornings epic fail when I chopped up my plastic lid I decided to give this another try and a lot of things happened. I used a kale spinach blend and I added in a chia seed pudding cube (this was a result of a failure with the chia seed pudding) and it was the only thing I had to make it cold so I am essentially drinking a warm smoothie which I do not recommend. But otherwise good and I can see this one becoming a regular in the rotation.

  41. Hilde says:

    Very yummy ❤️

  42. Lori says:

    Great, but I don’t think I have meet a smoothie, yet, that I don’t like!

  43. Tanya says:

    Loved this! Modified as I can’t have oranges so I just used mangoes and as usual put more spinach and less fruit but this was truly amazing and probably one of my favourites for flavour so far.

  44. Yolanda Moneyhun says:

    This one was ok but it will not make my favorites list.

  45. JT says:

    Perfectly balanced between the sweetness of the mango and the coconut water.

  46. Cathy says:

    Blended nicely tasted ok. I think it might be better with water instead.

  47. Judy says:

    Using a smaller piece of banana and a mandarin orange along with the mango, it was more than sweet enough so I used plain water instead of coconut water. It was still too sweet but 1/2 of a juiced lime did the trick. I subbed collard greens and cilantro for the spinach. I also added some unsweetened Paleo pumpkin protein powder to make this more of a meal replacement.

  48. Jess says:

    This is my favorite. I used blood oranges so the color was a bit darker. I love using coconut water to mix the smoothies.

  49. Christine says:

    Love this smoothie! So fresh, but also sweet. I swapped the orange for pineapple, as I don’t like orange in smoothies.

  50. Shawn says:

    I thought this one was pretty good!

  51. Anna says:

    Bright green in colour and you can taste the orange. Very fresh and delicious.

  52. M.I. Kenison says:

    WHOA!
    Mango Orange Smoothie is by far my favorite. I boosted it up with a smoothie cube and it was creamy and sweet.
    I’ll be making this one again soon!!!

  53. Grace says:

    I thought Mango Madness smoothie was really good; my husband said it was “okay,” but he’s still not used to drinking spinach. My mango was not quite ripe. I didn’t have any coconut water so I used tap water instead. For my half I added chia seeds, pea protein powder and a stick of celery.

  54. Precious says:

    This smoothie was good, but I didn’t have coconut water that didn’t have sugar, so it was a bit on the sweet side for me. The coconut water also overpowered the mango flavor, to me anyways.

  55. Josie Martiniello says:

    My 10 year daughter really enjoyed this smoothie – it is her favourite so far! The coconut water is a great additional and I like the taste together with the orange and mango! I added chia seeds which added extra health benefits to this amazing smoothie.

  56. Luda says:

    Day 5 smoothie . Another winner . So yummy .

  57. Amber says:

    One of my favorite smoothies!!! It is so yummy!!!

  58. Jeremy says:

    Yep, orange is my new fave in smoothies. I use honey tangerine, totally amazing. Coconut water was a nice touch, but would be pricey if used regularly.

  59. Margaret Eacker says:

    I added greek yogurt, for protein, along with chis and flaxseed meal.
    Was pretty good. I forgot the orange, which I am sure would have made it taste even better

  60. Jennifer J. says:

    This smoothie was sooo good. The coconut water and banana really completed the mango and upped the sweetness in this smoothie . It was delicious and one I will be rotating in to my smoothie list!

  61. Melanie says:

    Really good. I added 1/4 Avocado and bone broth protein shake.

  62. Connie says:

    Okay, but my least favorite of the 5 so far. Rather bland.

  63. Barb Dreger says:

    Love it! The mango and orange are excellent in this recipe!

  64. Tiffany says:

    Loved this one! I used coconut water and added cilantro to it and it went down so fast!

  65. Heather says:

    Another favorite for sure!

  66. Jessica Colley says:

    Love this one! I’m not a fan of coconut water so just used water instead! Still very delicious! 🙂

  67. Heather Smith says:

    I enjoy this smoothie. I thought it was pretty good for having orange in it, as orange is not my favorite. Today I did a vanilla protein which changed the flavor some but it was still great.

  68. Angeline says:

    This recipe was amazing, I love it! Best part is my two young kids too. The only thing I different was used almond milk with toasted coconut instead of the coconut water!

  69. Mary D says:

    It was good, probably would have been better with the coconut water and the sweetness from the banana. I subbed regular water and avocado since I was out of bananas.

    I added some turmeric to the water as well because I needed some extra anti-inflammatory help after a long run.

  70. Jamie says:

    Another yummy one!

  71. Laura says:

    Really tasty! One of our favorites so far in doing the smoothie challenge!

  72. Tina Migielicz says:

    Bright & refreshing!

  73. Mar says:

    I’ll make this again!

  74. Jen C. says:

    Tastes so good!

  75. Lisa says:

    This is a favorite! I love all things mango!

  76. Teresa says:

    Yum!!

  77. Connie M says:

    This was very delicious! Will be adding this one to my “make it again” list.

  78. AZ Sue says:

    Best one yet!!! I’m not supposed to have oranges (acid reflux), but I figured 1/2 an oranges couldn’t hurt. DELICIOUS!!
    I’m using Kale in all the drinks instead of spinach and I did add a small scoop of protein powder. I LOVE the pre-prep. This morning is church and I simply grabbed a prepared bag from the freezer, added the coconut water, blended and was ready to go. Even cleanup went fast. Next time I will add the flax, chia and Spirulina to it. This is great. Thanks

  79. Christine Heath says:

    Very good! My husband liked this one the best so far.

  80. Robin J says:

    Loved this one. Defiantly going to make this one again.

  81. Julie says:

    Jus love these smoothies!

  82. Carole says:

    The mango is wonderful !

  83. Bonnie Tallaksen says:

    Made as a meal replacement and added chia seeds. A little thicker than I like but it is delish!

  84. Rhonda Potts says:

    This was my first time using coconut water. I don’t really like coconut for the texture. But this was good. I’ll certainly use it more often. I used a frozen mango/pineapple mix. Was in a hurry. Getting ready for church. Forgot the banana. Will take more time prepping orange next time. Still delicious.

  85. Amy says:

    A big fan of coconut water. Much better than almond milk. A refreshing tropical taste. Really appreciate the analysis behind every recipe and the fun facts. It shows your passion.

  86. Kristin says:

    Yummy! I did not exepct to like it this much as I’m not really a mango fan but it’s good and I will make it again.

  87. Andrea says:

    I turned this smoothie into a meal replacement by adding tofu and chia seeds AND I gave it a boost with spirulina powder AND I added parsley and mint for a little bit more of a healthy boost. After all was said and done, it was a delicious, healthy and filling smoothie but I think I lost some of the sweetness. Still tasty and would try again as the recipe was intended.

  88. Nelleke Beats says:

    Great tropical smoothie. Has strong coconut flavor from coconut water so if you don’t coconuts you should change the liquid. I love the flavors

  89. Robin Westmiller says:

    Definitely one of the BEST tasting so far!

  90. Jenny says:

    I think this smoothie is deceptive. It’s starts out a bit flavorless, but then it hits you! Nicely done!

  91. Melissa says:

    This smoothie tastes amazing, so fresh and light! Love it

  92. Deborah Gilbert says:

    It was good. Getting use to the coconut water may take some time.

  93. Abby K says:

    Another awesome recipe. Tropical and refreshing. My toddler asked for more and that is a win! I added flaxseed and protein to mine. Eating more protein to my diet per doctor orders. also trying to increase my Omega 3 which I am very low in.

  94. Lalannie Knoll says:

    Another win. Refreshing and tropical all in one go!!

  95. Elizabeth says:

    ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
    My new favorite
    Bursts with flavor & so fragrant- wonderful way to wake up!

  96. Jeannette P. says:

    Yummy! A real burst of citrus from the orange. Extra hydrating from coconut water.

  97. Shelley says:

    Liked this smoothie a lot. A swapped the orange for peach. My favourite so far on this 10 challenge

  98. JT says:

    Delicious! Excellent consistency, and perfect amount of sweetness. This one will become a regular.

  99. Sheila says:

    Yummy! I love mango! Very tropical and what a great combo! It was very creamy!

  100. Anne Kelly says:

    It was so easy to make! It tasted great, but it’s the first green smoothie I’ve made. I might like another one even more! My husband wants to do the 10 day challenge with me! He has type 2 diabetes, and I’ve been looking at the carb count. Do you think the benefits outway the carbs?

    • SGS Rawkstar Jess says:

      Hi Anne! You can reduce the amount of natural sugars in your smoothies by flipping the ratio of leafy greens and fruit. You can also use low-glycemic fruits in your smoothies. I encourage your husband to speak with his doctor if he has any questions regarding how the smoothies will affect him.
