Ingredients used in making the smoothie.

Ingredients

You can make these smoothies with fresh or frozen fruit. My personal preference is frozen fruit. It creates a creamier texture.

  • Bananas – A frozen ripe banana will make this smoothie extra creamy. Time permitting, cut a banana into 1-inch thick rounds. Place in a Ziploc bag and freeze for two hours (30 minutes if in a time pinch.) 
  • Mango – If using fresh mango, I recommend cutting the mango into smaller pieces. I aim for a one-inch cube. 
  • Strawberry – If you use frozen strawberries, toss them into the blender. Cut off the tops (hulling) if you use fresh strawberries. If the berry is large, cut it into smaller pieces. 
  • Liquid- The liquid helps to facilitate the blending. I like to use non-dairy milk. Alternatives include apple juice, orange juice, or even water. 
  • Lemon Juice – (optional) – A small squeeze of lemon juice helps to balance out all the sweetness from the fruit. I use less than a teaspoon.

Instructions

Prepare the Fruits

Fresh fruits

  • Strawberries – Wash and dry the berries. Cut off the tops and slice them in half.
  • Banana – Slice it into 1 – 2 inch rounds.
  • Mango, remove the pit and skin, and cut into cubes.

Frozen fruits

  • Strawberries and mango are ready to go, and no preparation is needed.
  • Banana – cut it into 1 – 2 inch rounds, place in a Ziploc bag, and freeze for 2- 24 hours. You can reduce the freezing time to 30 minutes in a pinch.

Blend

  • Layered smoothie – Blend the mango with 1/3 of the liquid in a high-performance blender until smooth(Note: mangos are dense and might require additional liquid.) Place the blended mango in the refrigerator and clean the blender. Repeat with the strawberries and then the banana.

    Add the first layer using a spoon or a funnel to avoid splashing. I recommend starting with the mango layer because it is the heaviest. Next, add the strawberry layer, followed by the banana layer. Garnish with the extra fruits.
  • Blended smoothie – Place all of the ingredients into a high performance-blender. Start blending at a low speed and work up to a medium speed. If you start at too high of a speed, the ingredients end up on the side of the blender. If your smoothie is not blending, add one tablespoon of liquid and use a wooden spoon to loosen any chunks at the bottom.

Substitutions and Variations

  • Fruit – Smoothies taste great with just about any fruit combination. If you are missing one of the fruits above or do not have the desired quality, substitute with another fruit at a 1:1 ratio.
  • Creamy Smoothie – To make a thicker smoothie, use all frozen fruit and add 3 – 4 ice cubes. For extra flavor and thickness, add a Medjool date.
  • Coconut Milk – Use coconut milk for the liquid to make this a creamy tropical smoothie.
  • Protein Powder – Add a typical serving size of protein powder at the start of the blending steps.
  • Smoothie Bowl – To make a smoothie bowl, use all frozen fruits to make the smoothie extra creamy. Pour into a bowl and top with your favorite fruits, chia seeds, hemp seeds, etc.
  • Yogurt – You can make a smoothie with yogurt if you prefer. I recommend using yogurt in place of the liquid in the recipe.

FAQs

Are Banana Mango-Strawberry Smoothies Bad For You?

Homemade smoothies consist of whole food and unprocessed fruits, which are very good for you.

Fresh fruits and vegetables are always good for you. If you want to drink a smoothie daily, I recommend adding vegetables.

How do I Store This Smoothie?

Refrigerator – Place the smoothie in an air-tight container and place it in the fridge for up to two days. If the fruit has separated, stir to recombine.
