If you like mangos, you must try this luscious and creamy smoothie. It is both light and filling. You can use fresh or frozen mango chunks. There's no better way to get some calcium and fruit in for the day! Enjoy!!! If you love other fruit, add bananas, raspberries, or strawberries, if you wish.

This is a very good recipe but I found that two things make it a bit better. 1) If it is a bit tart adding up to 1 Tblsp of sugar helps. 2) Before adding the ice if you can refrigerate the mixture overnight the mango scent and flavor intensify IMMENSELY. Read More

Mango is on sale here this week so I bought quite a bit and we're in danger of losing them. I used buttermilk (use or lose kind of situation--I tried buttermilk in another smoothie recipe and we really liked it--you should try it, too!) and chunked frozen bananas instead of ice cubes instead of ice for added thickness and fruit. I doubled this for my boys and I and it was just enough for all of us. Very tasty! Read More

Great smoothie! What I liked best about this recipe is that it called for less yogurt than most - enough to give it some thickness and creaminess without giving it that noticeable sour tang. While I did have fresh mango on hand I decided to use frozen and I'm glad I did - I do notice that using frozen fruit does make a difference in making this super cold and refreshing. While I liked the addition of the vanilla I'll either reduce the amount next time or omit it altogether - there was enough in the vanilla yogurt and I think it may have detracted a bit from the full mango flavor. Also since I used frozen mango I think I'll omit the ice cubes next time too - Hubs and I both like our smoothies thick. The slight changes I'd make to this recipe in no way is a criticism of the recipe but only a matter of personal preference. I loved this nice change from the typical berry smoothie! Read More

I love this smoothie! I believe it's the best smoothie recipe I've ever made at home & I am now obsessed with mango! I added vanilla flavored protein powder since I wanted it to be a meal replacement shake but other than that I didn't change a thing. Read More

This turned out pretty good no sour taste from the yogurt..:O) Next time I would use frozen mango in place of fresh to keep the drink colder..as I prefer very very cold drinks I added extra ice:O) YUMMIE!! Read More

This smoothie was delicious! The only thing I would do differently next time is I will get frozen mangos instead of fresh. The fresh was just too much of a pain to peel. Read More

A little odd that I would have such a difference of opinion but I just didn't feel this had any flavor at all. I didn't find the vanilla overwhelming because I didn't taste it nor did I taste much mango. It was a bit like just drinking water with a bit of mango flavoring. And I did make it as is. I ended up adding a bunch (about 1/3 to 1/2 cup!) of orange-mango-peach juice concentrate to give it some flavor. I don't know if it's too much milk or what. I do see the review of someone saying to refrigerate overnight to bring out the flavor - but if I want a smoothie I'm generally wanting it now - not the kind of thing I'm waiting overnight for. Sorry. Read More

This is simple and delicious. I used one whole mango chopped which was about 1 1/2 cups. I did use 1/2 cup of yogurt (one small container) and 1/2 cup of skim milk. This is one of the creamiest smoothies I've had. Thanks for the recipe! Read More
