Also known affectionately as “Pink Flamango,” this strawberry mango smoothie was created by my very first Simple Green Smoothies team member, Dan Mottayaw. That was 8 years ago, and now he’s got a toddler who gulps this smoothie down! It warms my heart to see kids growing up on leafy greens + fruit, like this delicious strawberry mango smoothie recipe.

Powerhouse Smoothie Ingredient
Did you know that strawberries actually have more vitamin C than oranges? It’s true! These sweet berries shine in this strawberry mango smoothie recipe, both in flavor and in nutrients. They can be used in any berry recipe as a substitute.
Strawberries are also low in sugar + high in fiber, which makes them a great smoothie addition for anyone who is watching their blood sugar levels. The fiber helps avoid a blood sugar rush, as well as keep your levels more stable. They are naturally sweet, so they are a great sweet treat in a smoothie, or straight off the stem.

The Best Tropical Fruit
Okay, I know that statement is very subjective, but I really, really LOVE mango. I could eat them all day long and never tire of them – blended in this strawberry mango smoothie as well as freshly peeled.
Mango is like the tropical version of a peach. It’s juicy + sweet and chock full of vitamin A and fiber. Make sure and stand over the sink while eating a fresh one, because you’ll have juice dripping down your chin. No shame here! Add some mango to your smoothie to instantly get an island vibe going.
I usually buy frozen mango in bulk from Trader Joes or Costco because it’s cheaper than my local grocery store.

Strawberry and mango is one of my favorite fruit combos. I liked this smoothie a lot, but I missed the mango flavor; I couldn’t taste it at all. I also used unsweetened oat milk instead of almond milk, because that’s what I had. It made the smoothie extra creamy, which I really enjoyed. I’ll make again and up the amount of mango to hopefully get that delicious flavor.
Oat milk is def one of my fav swaps to up that creamy factor in any smoothie. Great choice, Hope! Next time, opt for fresh mango instead of frozen if you’re able. That should bring out the mango flavors in a stronger way for ya. Happy blending!
Not the fan. I used organic strawberries, banana, and cauliflower.
I enjoy all 3 individually. But not in a smoothie. I even tried to add blueberries with the second half just didn’t enjoy
One of my favorites 🙂
I agree with some of the “not quite sweet enough” comments. I made a doubled batch and after tasting, I boosted the flavor by adding 1 cashew/coconut frozen cube, 2 dates, and then just a little honey. It was delicious – will keep it as a regular!!
Love that you went for such great add-ins Bev. Way to customize! 🙂
