Healthy mango yogurt smoothie is refreshing, delicious, and healthy. Loaded with mangos and low-fat yogurt, this creamy tropical smoothie is perfect for a quick breakfast on the go, a healthy snack to give you a boost throughout the day, or as a light dessert (it tastes that good!). Nothing else sounds so refreshing, especially when the weather is hot outside. The best part? Throw everything into the blender and whip up this fresh mango smoothie in just minutes. So easy!
Why You'll Love Healthy Mango Yogurt Smoothie
- Mangos have a ton of health benefits. Let's talk about mangos, since they constitute the bulk of this smoothie which means I want to know everything about them. Not only are they delicious and packed with vitamins and minerals, but they provide a huge number of benefits such as: prevents and fights cancer, lowers cholesterol, alkalizes the body, promotes eye health, helps digestion, clears the skin, strengthens immune system, and helps fight heat stroke.
- You can enjoy this smoothie all year round. Summer = tropical fruits and flavours = healthy mango yogurt smoothie. Although tropical fruits such as mangos are not always in season, there is always an abundance of mango chunks in the frozen section aisle. That basically means that you can make this mango smoothie and have it feel and taste like summer any time of the year.
- It has no refined sugar. This homemade smoothie is sweetened by mangos and a little honey (which is optional). It has no refined sugar or sweeteners, unlike many store-bought smoothies which typically contain a lot of sugar, artificial flavors, and preservatives.
Ingredients and Substitutions
To make this easy 5-minute mango yogurt smoothie, you will need the following ingredients (full quantities in recipe card below):
- mango - I recommend using frozen mango chunks. You can also use fresh mangos, but you may need to add in some ice cubes to thicken it up a bit and make it cool.
- yogurt - I recommend using low-fat plain yogurt to keep it healthier, but you can use any kind of yogurt. If using Greek yogurt, the smoothie may end up very thick, so you may need to add in some water to thin it out a bit.
- honey - adds a little sweetness, but feel free to leave it out if you prefer.
- lime juice - you can also substitute with lemon juice.
- cinnamon - cinnamon adds a nice subtle compliment to the flavor of the mango in here. Feel free to leave it out if you prefer.

Recipe Tips and Tricks
- How to customize: You can customize this smoothie but adding in different kinds of fruits, making sure to keep the ratio of fruit the same. Try substitution a cup of mango with pineapple or kiwi.
