Copycat Mango Magic Tropical Smoothie

I am someone who loved going to Tropical Smoothie Cafe, but I also love making smoothies at home, which is why today I present to you my mango magic tropical smoothie recipe!

Is Mango Magic at Tropical Smoothie Healthy?

The original Tropical Smoothie Cafe mango magic smoothie is relatively healthy. 

The only downside to it, is that it’s quite high in sugar. A serving of the magic mango smoothie contains 430 calories, 98g of carbs, 81g of which are sugars.

However, most Tropical Smoothie Cafe Smoothies are healthy, since they tend to use real fruit, rather than from purees. 

I do like to make my own copycat versions of  this famous smoothie chain because they not only come out much cheaper, but much healthier too!

What Is In a Mango Magic Smoothie At Tropical Smoothie Cafe?

  • Pineapple
  • Mango
  • Non-Fat Yogurt
  • Fruit Juice

I made my homemade mango magic drink using the exact same ingredients like original recipe!

Is The Homemade Mango Magic Tropical Smoothie Healthy?

Since I used the exact same ingredients the original mango magic recipe consists of, the smoothie is mostly healthy.

The only ingredient that isn’t a healthy one is the fruit juice I used. But, every other ingredient though, is healthy!

Here are some of the benefits you can get from drinking this mango and pineapple smoothie:

  • Rich in Vitamin C: Which helps boost the immune system.
  • High in Vitamin A: Supports vision, immune function, and skin health.
  • Good Source of Fiber: Aids in digestion and helps keep you full.
  • Probiotics from Yogurt: Supports gut health.
  • Contains Protein: Yogurt adds protein, which is essential for muscle repair and overall bodily function.
  • Natural Sugars: Provides a quick source of energy. Thanks to the fiber, the energy is mostly steady, which avoids sharp rises and drops.

Homemade Mango Magic Tropical Smoothie Calories

Mango Magic Tropical Smoothie Calories

The original recipe contains 430 calories, my homemade recipe contains 370. 

It’s slightly lower in calories than the original recipe. Not to mention it’s a lot cheaper too, and it’s ready in under 5 minutes!

No more waiting at a que to get your smoothie fix.

Recipe Variations

I made many different variations of this recipe. The recipe I am sharing today came the closest in terms of taste to the original recipe.

However, if you lack some of the ingredients I used, or you want to make a slightly different tasting recipe or a healthier one, I am going to leave some options for you below:

  • For a lower calorie and lower sugar recipe, instead of fruit juice use almond milk or coconut water instead.
  • For an ultra thick smoothie, add 1 cup or 1/2 cup of ice cubes in the blender with the rest of your ingredients.
  • If you don’t have pineapple, just use extra mango, the same amount of pineapple you would have needed to use which is 1 cup.
  • For a berry version, instead of pineapple use 1 cup of frozen berries of choice instead.
  • If you want this smoothie more filling, add 1 tablespoon of chia seeds or nut butter, such as almond butter.

As an additional note, as you probably know, Tropical Smoothie Cafe uses supplements in their drinks.

So you want to make a more authentic copycat recipe, get yourself some of their supplements!
