Mango And Pear Smoothie Benefits

Shortly after creating a blueberry and pear smoothie recipe, I was eager to test a mango and a pear combo.

The reason why mango and pear work so well together, is not just the marriage of flavors between them, but also the unique benefits each fruit offers.

Tasty Recipe Variations & Tips

I recently made a pear and banana smoothie, but I thought this mango smoothie with pear doesn’t need the banana.

So, I tested many different versions of this smoothie until I got it right.

If the current recipe is not to your taste, or you lack some of the ingredients listed, below are some other tested variations of this smoothie.

  • Make this smoothie higher in protein by adding a scoop of protein powder. 
  • If you are not vegan, adding 1/2 cup of Greek yogurt gives this smoothie another element of creaminess and of course gut-friendly properties
  • Substitute the chia seeds for oats. Use gluten-free oats if needed.
  • Allergic to nuts? Swap the almond butter for sunflower seed butter, or a 1/3 avocado.

Recipe Tips

  • Do not peel the skin of the pears! You can eat pear skin. I recommend that you do this since there are a lot of nutrients in pear skin.
  • Always add frozen fruit first to your blender, so that they are closer to the blades and get crushed first.
  • Always start the blending at a lower speed, then gradually increase it.
  • Dicing the pear makes the blending process easier and more effective.

Questions From The Smoothie Communities Regarding The Recipe

I am so lucky to have a great passionate smoothie community across different social media platforms such as:

My followers adored this recipe, but naturally, I received several questions regarding the smoothie and recipe, which I will also answer here, in this recipe post:

I Don't Have Frozen Mango - Can I Still Make The Smoothie?

If you don't have frozen mango, you can use fresh mango. The quantities should remain the same - 1 cup. If you have other frozen fruit, you can experiment using other types.

What Does The Smoothie Taste Like?

The smoothie tastes cooling, with nuttiness coming from the chia seeds. It's also sweet, with tropical flavors going through it thanks to the mango and coconut milk.

How Do I Store This Mango And Pear Smoothie For Later?

If you have made a big batch of this smoothie, or simply meal prepping it, it is best to transfer into an air-tight container or a smoothie bottle as soon as it's blended. Then immediately put it in the fridge. Consume it within 2 days.
