2 Ingredient Mango Smoothie Recipe Variations
I’ve made this tropical smoothie several times now, and each time I tested a different version.
The changes you can make are with the smoothie base and how you serve the smoothie.
In the original recipe, the base is yogurt, however, you can use many different liquid smoothie bases too, each with their own benefit.
Here is a list of your options:
- Coconut Water: I love using coconut water in smoothies. Coconut water adds a nice gentle background taste of coconut, which works very well with mango.
- Almond Milk: Almond milk not only adds a delightful nutty taste but also trims down the smoothie’s calorie count. Opting for almond milk is an excellent choice if you want a low calorie smoothie.
- Oat Milk: Oat milk also adds a nutty background taste to the smoothie, but it’s actually nut-free. If nut-free & dairy-free is your preferred choice, swap the yogurt for oat milk.
Make It a Smoothie Bowl
The smoothie is quite thick when it’s blended, meaning, it can easily be served as a smoothie bowl.
I love serving this mango smoothie as a smoothie bowl, whenever I fancy a nourishing breakfast bowl. You can add all your favorite smoothie bowl toppings.
Mine are sliced banana, cacao nibs, shredded coconut, nut butter, and maple syrup!
Add More Ingredients!
The smoothie is perfectly fine with these 2 simple ingredients, however, you can most definitely elevate it and boost nutrition by adding more ingredients.
Here are some ingredients you can add that work well with mango and yogurt:
- Chia seeds (1 tablespoon)
- Cacao Powder (1 tablespoon)
- Nut butter (1 tablespoon)
- Peach (1/2 cup)
- Berries (1/2 cup)
- Pineapple (1/2 cup)
