I am always in the mood for a delicious smoothie, but especially this one—it is packed with vitamin C, fiber and protein, and it makes you feel like you are lying on an exotic beach somewhere. That’s why I called it Tropical Vacation Mango Smoothie.

I don’t always feel like a healthy green smoothie like my Green Goddess Smoothie. Those smoothies are packed with fantastic vitamins from spinach and greens. Sometimes I want a refreshing fruit smoothie, but don’t want to forgo the health. I don’t want a shake, I just don’t want the greens.

 

Find out why using a whole orange in your smoothie is healthier that just juice. Read on!

 

This mango smoothie has so many fresh ingredients, and fridge staples making it quick and simple to make. It’s a refreshing take on the flavors of one of my old favorites, an Orange Julius! Remember those? It was a fruity, refreshing drink, but didn’t have any health benefits.

This one includes vitamin C rich oranges and mangos. Plus I added yogurt to bump up the protein and calcium. The yogurt also adds that creamy addition! I used coconut yogurt for a tropical flavor.

Ingredients for a tropical mango smoothie:

  • ½ cup fresh or frozen mango
  • ¾ cup coconut yogurt
  • 1 whole orange, peeled
  • ½ cup orange juice
  • 1 ½ cups ice

Using a whole orange in your smoothie may be something new, but it’s so good for you! By using the whole orange (peeled), you are able to get more fiber than you normally would using just slices or wedges.

I love to use frozen fruit in my smoothies because it helps with the consistency. There is a common misconception that frozen fruit is less healthy than the fresh stuff. That’s not true! Frozen fruit is frozen fresh and not picked unripe to account for shipping. It is allowed more time to ripen on the tree, ensuring lots of flavor and even more nutrients.

Tropical Vacation Mango Smoothie is both refreshing and filling.

 

To make a healthy smoothie, don’t feel like you have to pack in the greens. There is a time and a place for green smoothies, but just because a smoothie doesn’t include kale, doesn’t mean it isn’t giving you lots of nutrients.
