Our Easy Tropical Mango Banana Smoothie

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. [1]

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?

Because of mango’s natural enzymes, some recipes actually use mango to tenderize meat. The enzymes in mango work to break down proteins in the meat, making it softer and less chewy.

Ginger is another old-school digestive aid that’s healthy and nutritious.

It aids digestion, acts as an anti-inflammatory, helps with nausea and is even known to kill parasites! [2][3]

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.[3]

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!

How to Make this Mango Banana Smoothie

You’ll need either a hand blender or a stand blender to make this smoothie and although it’s not mandatory, a citrus juicer will make your life a lot easier.

If you need a good hand blender try this one. For a stand blender, I love Vitamix.

Recipe FAQ

Why is this Not Vegan?

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.

Is this Keto?

Unfortunately not, there is a high amount of sugar in the fruit and honey which is not suitable for a keto diet.
