Benefits of a Healthy
Fruit Smoothie

A healthy mango smoothie recipe will make you one of the most nutritious — and delicious — meals on earth. Healthy fruit smoothie recipes are loaded with phytonutrients, vitamins, minerals and enzymes that come in a whole-food form.

In addition, when fruits and vegetables are blended, the plant fibers are broken down just like when you chew them; the blender literally does most of the “chewing” for you. And chewing food more thoroughly means that you'll absorb more of the nutrients.

Healthy fruit smoothies retain the fiber from the fruits and the vegetables you use. The fiber works to improve digestion and helps your body naturally rid itself of toxins. Fiber also helps you feel more satisfied, and maintains that feeling longer.



Mangoes Make Excellent Ingredients for Healthy Smoothies

Mangoes are excellent sources of vitamin A, vitamin C and potassium. They have less than a half-gram of fat, and will add a wonderful natural sweetness to your smoothie.

Each mango smoothie recipe here is just a starting point for you to experiment with and customize to your own taste. You can find recommended optional ingredients to add to any mango smoothie recipe to make it more nutritious at my  complete guide to making a healthy smoothie.

Recommended Starters
for Your Mango Smoothie Recipe

Most smoothie recipes call for a liquid ingredient to allow the solid components to move around inside the blender and give your smoothie the right thickness. The beverage you choose will largely determine how healthy your smoothie turns out.

What are the best beverages to use to make your smoothie as healthy as possible? The most common choices are  water, cows milk, yogurt, soy milk, nut milks, or fruit juice. To discover the pros and cons of each one, see my page on how to make a smoothie the healthy way.


Making Your Smoothie Recipes
into Complete Meals

Many smoothie recipes are relatively low in protein, so they're not complete meals by themselves. The easy solution is to add a protein source to any healthy smoothie recipe.

The simplest way to do this is by adding a couple of raw organic eggs to your basic recipe. Raw eggs won't change the taste of your smoothie at all, and the argument that they're bad for you because of the cholesterol content is just not true. Eggs are one of the most beneficial foods you can eat, especially when consumed raw.

You can also increase the protein content of your healthy smoothie recipe by adding a protein powder.  Be sure to use a high quality product; most cheap protein powders are excessively heat-processed and aren't really good for you.

There are many other ways to transform your ordinary smoothie recipe into one with enhanced nutritional value. You can add superfood powders, healthy fats, herbs, spices and extra fiber. My complete guide to making a smoothie the healthy way has lots of tips and tricks to make your smoothie better.


Healthy Mango Smoothies

Whenever a smoothie recipe calls for milk, I recommend you use any type of non-dairy milk product instead — there are many different ones to choose from: hemp, almond, soy, rice, etc. These are healthier alternatives to dairy foods, and are extremely easy to keep on hand, since they have a rather long shelf life.

  1. Start by pouring the liquid ingredients for each smoothie recipe into your blender.
  2. Toss in your solid ingredients: fresh or frozen fruits and vegetables.
  3. Add any optional ingredients, if you like — blending as you go.
  4. Add more liquid to reduce the thickness of your smoothie, ice to chill it, or more fruit to thicken your smoothie.
  5. You can substitute ingredients at your whim — it's fun to experiment!
