We drink smoothies every day and although we’ve had this tropical mango banana smoothie a myriad of times, it still never gets old.
As we’re both big into citrus flavours, this tropical beverage always hits the spot.
It’s got a TON of vitamin C from the fresh orange juice and it’s packed with digestion-aiding mango and ginger. 
What’s So Special About this Mango Banana Smoothie?
If you like fresh citrus flavours in the morning, then you’ll probably LOVE this smoothie.
It’s perfectly balanced with a brightness from the fresh lime juice, a little sweetness from the honey and a creaminess from the mango and banana.
It’s fresh, bright, quick to prepare and the BEST way to start your day.
This Smoothie May Help Boost Your Digestion
Mango is great for digestion because it contains a group of digestive enzymes called amylases.
These enzymes break down carbs into sugars which means it may help to prevent indigestion during a big meal.
Did You Know?
Ginger is another old-school digestive aid that’s healthy and nutritious.
That’s why it’s traditional to serve sushi with pickled ginger on the side – it’s been shown that ginger can kill dangerous parasites.
Tips for Making One Killer Smoothie
- Use frozen fruit instead of adding ice which will water down the taste. Better yet, buy a bunch of ripe mangos, cut them up and freeze them yourself to save money on frozen fruit.
- Don’t forget the banana – this is the key to a smooth and emulsified beverage.
- If you want to save time, buy fresh squeezed orange instead of juicing it yourself – although the taste is never quite as good!

It contains honey which is not cool for all vegans. You can swap out the honey for agave syrup – just add about half as much because agave is much sweeter than honey.
Unfortunately not, there is a high amount of sugar in the fruit and honey which is not suitable for a keto diet.
