Does Chocolate Go Well With Mango?

Chocolate and mango together may seem like a strange combination, but the truth is, they are a great combination!

Mango is sweet and creamy, so it works so well with chocolate. It cuts through the bitterness of chocolate – especially if you are using darker chocolate.

The truth is, that most fruit works well with chocolate. Strawberries, pears, and bananas work just fine with chocolate for example. The same applies to mango too.

Benefits of Chocolate Mango Smoothie

The method of making this chocolate peanut butter mango smoothie is super simple, which is why I love making this smoothie.

Here are the ingredients you are going to need to make this chocolate smoothie:

  • 1/2 cup/75g fresh mango chunks
  • 1/2 cup/75g frozen banana chunks
  • 1/3 cup/45g frozen strawberries
  • 1-2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1 tbsp peanut butter
  • 1 scoop protein powder
  • 200 ml unsweetened almond milk

Once the ingredients have been gathered and measured, add them all to your blender starting with the frozen fruit.

You can also use nutribullet

Once the ingredients are added to your blender, blitz until smooth for about 4-5 minutes. The smoothie comes out thick and so indulgent!

Recipe Variations And Substitutions

I am going to leave some notes below for some optional ideas and changes you can make to this smoothie.

The suggestions are optional, they can only be useful if you want to swap some ingredients or change the taste of this chocolate mango strawberry smoothie slightly so it can suit your own preferences.

  • Instead of peanut butter you can use almond butter or sunflower seed butter.
  • Instead of cocoa powder you can use cacao powder which is healthier and contains more nutrients.
  • The smoothie comes out quite thick using the ingredients I listed, so for a thinner smoothie use more liquid.
  • I used unsweetened and unflavoured protein powder, but you can use vanilla for example.
  • Instead of strawberries, you can use any other berry you like or have.
  • For a vegan smoothie recipe – use vegan protein powder.
