Mango Ginger Smoothie Benefits

This mango leafy green smoothie with ginger is packed with ingredients that not only help cleanse your body, but also nourish it, by providing you with essential nutrients. 

This is a smoothie I often drink after a vacation or a period of over-indulgence. It helps me get back on track to eating healthy. 

Here’s an overview of the benefits of this mango and ginger smoothie:

  • Nutrient-Rich: Provides a wide range of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants from mango, banana, spinach, and lime, supporting overall health.
  • Anti-Inflammatory Properties: Turmeric and ginger offer strong anti-inflammatory benefits, reducing inflammation and potentially easing pain.
  • Digestive Health: Ginger and fiber from chia seeds and fruits aid in digestion and can help prevent constipation.
  • Detoxification: Ingredients like spinach, ginger, turmeric, and lime juice support the body’s natural detoxification processes, helping to cleanse the liver and improve toxin elimination.
  • Immune System Boost: High in vitamin C from mango and lime, this smoothie can strengthen the immune system.
  • Weight Loss Support: Low in calories and high in fiber, helping to promote satiety and reduce overall calorie intake.
  • Energy Boosting: The natural sugars in fruits provide a quick energy boost, while chia seeds offer sustained energy release.
  • Heart Health: Chia seeds are rich in omega-3 fatty acids, which are beneficial for heart health.
  • Enhanced Absorption: Black pepper enhances the absorption of curcumin, the active component in turmeric, maximizing its health benefits.

Recipe Notes & Smoothie Variations

One of my favorite things about developing any smoothie recipe is the experimentation part.

I love testing out different ingredients and flavor combos. 

Some come out successfully, others not so much.

Below I will leave some tasty variations of this smoothie which I have loved, and I think  you will too:

  • Swap The Base: If you don’t have coconut water or struggle to find it, use dairy-free milk instead or plain water.
  • Powder Ginger: If you don’t have fresh ginger root, use 1/4 tsp powdered ginger
  • No Banana: If you don’t like bananas use pineapple instead. Just make sure it’s frozen.
  • Seeds: Use flaxseeds instead of chia seeds, or use hemp hearts.
  • Protein Boost: Add 20-25g of protein to this smoothie by adding a scoop of unsweetened and unflavored protein powder.

Blender Type Suitability
Nutribullet 600
Vitamix Blender Propel 510
BlendJet 4000mAh
Ninja Blender BL610
Oster 6640 Blender
Hamilton Beach 58148A Blender
AMZChef Blender 1800 W

All 8 blenders and models I tested with this smoothie recipe worked. 

The smoothie is quite easy to blend, which means you don’t have to have a powerful blender in order to make this smoothie.


Type Of Diet Suitable
Raw Food-Friendly

The smoothie is only suitable for a raw vegan diet if you are not particularly strict.

The reason is the turmeric. Turmeric powder is processed into a powder, often by baking it, which is a form of processing.

However, if you are a very strict raw vegan, use raw turmeric root. In that case, you will only need 1/4 minced turmeric root.
