Strawberry Mango Smoothie

/// July 16th, 2015

Fruit smoothie purists, this one is for you! This stunning drink is made up of frozen strawberries, chunks of sweet mango, fresh squeezed orange juice, and a splash of water – that’s it!

Strawberry Mango Smoothie Refreshing smoothies are synonymous with warm Summer mornings.

In the past I’ve created several smoothies inspired by decadent desserts (three of my faves: Thick and Creamy Chocolate Breakfast Shake, Healthy Banana Cream Pie Smoothie, Chocolate Raspberry Smoothie) but today’s smoothie recipe is actually inspired by one of my favorite adult beverages: the margarita! ♡♡♡♡♡♡

I wanted to create a smoothie – or mocktail, as my little brother might call it – that was healthy, pretty, and guaranteed to quench your thirst. Basically I wanted to make you a margarita that’s totally acceptable to slurp down at 8 am.

I was also on a mother trucking mission to make a smoothie recipe that didn’t call for frozen banana. <— Many of you have requested this in the past; I was listening 😉

Strawberry Mango Smoothie Friends, meet the Strawberry Mango Smoothie! Isn’t she a beaut?

Strawberry Mango Smoothie This smoothie was 100% inspired by these Raspberry Mango Margaritas. I decided to play off of that idea, ditch the raspberry in favor of strawberry, ditch the booze in favor of fresh squeezed orange juice (go ahead and add some if you want; I won’t judge), and test test test.

Recipe testing is truly the best part of my job!

Strawberry Mango Smoothie I chose to blend the mango smoothie mix and the strawberry smoothie mix separately so they could be swirled together right before serving. I did this mainly because I find it so aesthetically pleasing (and fun), but if you’re short on time, please feel free to blend everything together in one batch. They will be equally delicious… but may loose a few pretty points since you won’t have the vibrant color duo shining through your glass.

Strawberry Mango Smoothie These smoothies are made up of fresh fruity flavors, a kick of bright citrus, and not much else. Feel free to add a tablespoon of sugar or honey to the smoothie base, if you prefer a very sweet treat, or leave it as is for a naturally delicious drink.

Strawberry Mango Smoothie - this recipe only calls for 3 ingredients and can be ready in 5 minutes! Treat yourself to one TODAY.

Final words: Make a batch of these today! They’re creamy, dreamy, and ferociously refreshing on a hot Summer day.

    Ashley – I just found your blog through pinterest and holy cow girl, I am HOOKED. My boyfriend doesn’t drink alcohol and I am always trying to find fun drink recipes to make for him so he doesn’t feel left out during happy hour. We are making these tomorrow… but I will be adding tequila to mine.

    FINALLY!!! A smoothie that sounds fruity and refreshing with NO. BANANA. I’m allergic so it’s always a pain to find good smoothie recipes or things to substitute for banana. I will definitely be making this soon.

    I literally made the Strawberry Mango Smoothie this morning and it’s amazing. So easy to make with so little ingredients. By far the best smoothie I have had in a long time. Waiting and paying for Jamba Juice is to expensive. This makes it so much more cheaper and more delicious!!!!!!
