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.

    YUMMMY!!!! this is my favorite of the challenge so far! Will keep this one and use again and again!!

  2. Do not use almond milk so just used water . Was ok with mango next time will add a banana or avacaso to make it more creamy

    Tasty smoothie, although I had to swap frozen peaches for the mango as I didn’t realize I was out. It was still very good. I must agree with previous comments about almond milk surprising me as I am not typically a fan!

    Pink Flamingo has been a favorite of mine forever! Being very subtle, this one can lack in flavor depending on the ripeness of the frozen strawberries. I do find the flavor of the strawberries come out better if you defrost at least half of them. I added my usual spirulina and plain pea protein powder for a yummy breakfast.

  5. I personally like the idea of strawberries in a smoothie and this one doesn’t disappoint. The color is more grayish because of the redness of the strawberries. Not the pretty green the first two smoothies were, but does that matter?

    This is one of my new favorites. I really like what the plant milk does for it; I ended up finishing up an almond milk carton and added oatmeal mild to get a full cup.

    I have never been a fan of almond milk, but it tasted fine in the smoothie. It has been fun using ingredients that I would never usually use, to find out that they actually taste fine and the nutritional benefits are amazing.

  8. The Day 6 Strawberry Mango Smoothie is an understated beauty. I’m impressed with the amount of vitamin C in those sneaky strawberries, as they gently flavor the deep dark green elixir. I’m also impressed that the homemade protein powder has such a mild flavor, resulting in smoothies that even let a pile of unsweetened strawberries take a leading role… instead of overshadowing with a flavor too grassy or too earthy. Thanks for the revelations, Jen! Go Green!

    I liked the Strawberry Mango Smoothie but not as much as the other ones. It tasted a bit more green. I think I will reduce the greens and up the mango the next time I make it.

    I liked the Stranger Mango Smoothie. The flavor was a little more green than the others and it was quite creamy. I think I would reduce the greens and up the mango next time to see how that would taste.
