How to make a mango blueberry smoothie you can blend up quick. Easy recipe for breakfast or a yummy snack kids will love. It's thick and pure berry bliss!

There are days where I just crave fresh fruit, and then I start to crave Tropical Smoothie Café. But it's not always feasible to just pick up and trek all the way there, so I'll grab the blender and dig around in the freezer until I find enough stuff to make my own refreshing smoothie.

This blueberry mango smoothie is not only refreshing. It's really thick and delicious.

It's full of frozen blueberries, frozen mango, and banana. The fact it uses frozen fruit means it's easy (no peeling or chopping required), and there's no need to add ice or water.

While I do use Greek yogurt in this smoothie recipe, you can leave that out if you prefer. Just keep in mind you may need to add a smidge more milk to help everything blend up really well.

A mango blueberry banana smoothie is one of my favorite afternoon snacks when I start to crave something, anything. Better to reach for the frozen fruit in my freezer than the cheesecake sitting in my fridge, amIright?

If you love a good smoothie, I have a couple more favorites I like to make too… A peach mango smoothie and a blueberry spinach smoothie. Apparently, I have a thing for both mango and blueberries.

HOW TO MAKE A MANGO BLUEBERRY SMOOTHIE

The fact we're using frozen fruit makes the smoothie making process that much easier. No need to wash, peel, pit, chop, or slice any fruit.

  1. Begin by adding all ingredients, including the frozen blueberries, frozen mango, banana, Greek yogurt, milk, and honey to the blender.
  2. Blend or pulse until everything is mixed well. If you have a smoothie setting on your blender, use that.

Then just pour your smoothies into tumblers with straws or jars, and serve. It's oh so delicious and easy!

WHAT KINDS OF THINGS CAN I ADD TO MY SMOOTHIE?

There are quite a few things you can add to smoothies to add more flavor and quite possibly, more nutrients. Things that mix really well with blueberries like…

CAN I USE FRESH BLUEBERRIES AND MANGO?

Yes, of course, you can use fresh fruit if you prefer.

But do keep in mind that you may want to add a bit of ice (about 1 1/2 cups) to give your smoothie more of a frozen texture rather than that of just a really thick fruit juice.

WHY DOES MY BLUEBERRY SMOOTHIE CURDLE?

It's best to drink smoothies right away. However, if a smoothie does sit for a bit after making it, you'll notice it may take on a somewhat curdled appearance.

This happens because of a reaction between the dairy in the smoothie (the yogurt and milk) and the fruit.

While I don't advise you to leave a smoothie sitting out (put it in the fridge if it's sitting), you can blend it up again, and the curdling will go away.

CAN I MAKE A BLUEBERRY MANGO SMOOTHIE AHEAD?

While I don't really advise it (it's super quick and easy to just blend it up when you need it), you can do this.

However, I'd leave the yogurt, milk, and honey out until you're ready to drink the smoothies (see the section above about curdling).

Just blend up the fruit, and stick it in an airtight container in the fridge or freezer until you're ready to finish making the smoothies.

CAN I MAKE THIS WITHOUT YOGURT, DAIRY-FREE?

Yes, you certainly can make this smoothie completely dairy-free. Again, just keep in mind you may need to add a smidge more liquid to help everything blend up really well.

The yogurt, you can just leave out. And the milk, you can replace with whatever kind of milk you prefer, whether it’s almond milksoy milk, rice milk, coconut milk, oat milk, cashew milk, hemp milk, hazelnut milk, etc.

Changing it to dairy-free will likely change the flavor, depending what type of liquid you use.
