Mango Banana Smoothie Ingredients
- Banana, frozen
- Mango, fresh or frozen
- Yogurt of choice
- Milk of choice
- Fresh vs. Frozen Fruit: You can use fresh mango or frozen mango to make this banana mango smoothie recipe—both turn out delicious! But, I do recommend using a frozen banana to give this smoothie its lusciously thick texture. (Fresh banana will still work just fine, it just won’t be as thick and creamy.)
- Yogurt: Dairy or nondairy, use whichever type of yogurt suits your lifestyle! Sometimes I like to use a Greek yogurt for added protein, but you can also use regular yogurt, Icelandic Skyr, soy or coconut milk yogurt, almond or cashew milk yogurt—anything you like.
- Milk: Use whatever milk you prefer—dairy or nondairy; whole, skim, or reduced fat. Personally, I love coconut milk in this healthy mango smoothie because it add some nutritious dietary fat and even more tropical flair! Almond, cashew, oat, soy, rice, or any other nondairy milk can work as well.

Making this smoothie is as simple as: blend and serve!
