About This Recipe
The current trend, Smoothie Bowl is a wholesome and healthy breakfast where frozen fruits are pureed with the choice of milk and then topped with various fruits, nuts, granola, etc.
To make this delicious Mango Smoothie Bowl Recipe, peeled, cubed and frozen mangoes, peeled and frozen bananas, yogurt, milk, and coconut water are added in a blender and mixed until completely blended.
Not only this is delicious but it has a lot of nutritional benefits. Mangoes are full of goodness and an excellent source of Vitamin A, beta-carotene, and potassium. They also provide nutrients like Vitamin B6, Vitamin C, and Vitamin E.
It’s best to use frozen fruits for smoothies as it gives the smoothie a creamy texture and it blends really well. The smoothie is then poured into a serving bowl. It’s best when smoothies are served immediately as all the nutrient contents of the fruits are intact.

Here are some more Smoothie Recipes, that you can try – Celery Smoothie, Strawberry Pineapple Smoothie, Mango Kale Smoothie, Healthy Strawberry Blueberry Smoothie, Peach Mango Smoothie, and Chocolate Banana Smoothie.
Fruits – Mango is the star ingredient of this smoothie bowl, take lots of mangoes. Freeze them overnight for a denser and creamier version of the smoothie bowl. Along with mangoes, I have also added Bananas, as it makes this smoothie more delicious.
I recommend you to use frozen banana here, as it adds to the creaminess of the smoothie. If you use a non-frozen and regular banana, your smoothie might not get that thick & have a creamy consistency.
Yogurt, Milk, and Coconut Milk– While Yogurt and Milk give it that creamy texture to the smoothies and Coconut Milk give it that tropical flavor along with creaminess.
If you are looking for a vegan version, you can substitute milk and yogurt with almond milk or coconut milk.
You can even add honey or maple syrup if you are like it to be sweeter.
