Tips for Making This Mango Banana Smoothie Recipe

Use Quality Ingredients – When making smoothies at home, you’ll want to make sure you are using high-quality ingredients for the best outcome.

Use Frozen Fruit – Freezing your fruit or using packaged frozen fruit will mean that you don’t need to add any ice to your smoothie, which will water down the flavor. If your fruit isn’t frozen, you will want to add up to 1 cup of ice cubes.

Adjust the Consistency – If your smoothie is too thin, blend in a few more pieces of frozen fruit. If it’s too thick, add a little bit more liquid such as juice or milk.

Add Ingredients in Order – To be kind to your blender, it’s best to add the liquid first, then the solid ingredients.

Enjoy Right Away – Your smoothie will always be most delicious if you enjoy it directly after blending it up! If you have leftovers, freeze them into popsicle molds and enjoy a tasty treat later.

What Else Can I Add to A Mango Banana Smoothie?

The fun thing about smoothies is that there are very few rules about how to make them!

Boost the nutritional value of your smoothie by adding a handful of leafy greens, like spinach or kale. For a pop of nutrition and a little bit of texture, mix in some chia seeds, oats, flaxseeds, nuts, or hemp hearts.

Enhance your smoothie even further by adding protein to it. Options include Greek yogurt, silken tofu, nut butter, or a scoop of protein powder. This is especially beneficial for post-workout smoothies.

Try other fruits in this recipe, like frozen strawberries, pineapple chunks, or blueberries.

Lastly (but importantly!), consider adding ice cream, sherbet, or sorbet to your smoothie to make it even more delicious! I’ll share all of my favorite suggestions below.
