Ingredients you’ll need
This banana mango strawberry smoothie calls for five healthy and simple ingredients. You’ll need a banana, a fresh or frozen mango, strawberries, some milk, and some Greek yogurt. Here is a list of all the ingredients so you are prepared:

- Strawberries: I love strawberries; they are the perfect summer fruit. You can use fresh or frozen.
- Milk: I used unsweetened almond milk, but you can use oat milk, cow’s milk, cashew milk, or your favorite type.

How to make a banana mango strawberry smoothie
This recipe is so easy to make! Just throw all your ingredients into a high-speed blender, blend, and enjoy your smoothie in less than a few minutes. It’s great for breakfast, as a snack, and even as a dessert. Here are step-by-step directions:
First, add all ingredients to a high-speed blender.
Then, blend until smooth and creamy.
TIP: For a thinner smoothie, add more milk. For a thicker smoothie, add a bit more frozen banana or a few ice cubes.
Finally, pour it into a glass and enjoy!
Tips for making a thick smoothie
Use frozen banana. Use a chopped-up frozen banana to help thicken your smoothie naturally without adding a ton of ice. This trick makes super thick and creamy smoothies rather than icy ones.
Use frozen strawberries or frozen mangos. This trick not only saves you money since frozen fruit is cheaper and has the same nutritional value as fresh ones, but it also helps make your smoothie extra thick.
Start with the minimum amount of milk. You can always add more milk if you want a thinner smoothie. Start with a 1/2 cup and add from there.
Add a few cubes of ice. I never add more than 8 ice cubes to my smoothies because it can make them “icy” and not creamy. But adding a few helps make them thicker.
Should I use fresh or frozen mangos?
You can use either fresh or frozen mangos for this smoothie, so you can enjoy this recipe all year long without having to wait for mangos to come into season.
If you use fresh mango, then make sure to use a frozen banana and frozen strawberries to keep your smoothie super thick and creamy.
If you are making this smoothie recipe when mangos are out of season, you can certainly use frozen mango chunks. In that case, you can use a fresh banana if desired.
Frequently Asked Questions
Can I make it dairy free?
Yes, you can make this smoothie dairy free by using dairy-free milk and your favorite dairy-free yogurt. I like almond milk yogurt, oat milk yogurt, or coconut yogurt.
Is this recipe vegan?
This banana mango strawberry smoothie is 100% vegan if you use dairy-free yogurt and plant milk.
Can I add protein powder?
You can certainly add more protein to this banana mango strawberry smoothie by adding 1 scoop of unflavored or vanilla protein powder.
Can I double or triple the recipe?
You can easily double or triple this recipe. Simply follow the same instructions and make sure your blender is big enough to hold all the ingredients.
Can I use a fresh banana?
You can certainly use a fresh banana in this recipe. If you do, I recommend using frozen strawberries and frozen mangos, so the smoothie is thick. You can also try adding 1 – 5 ice cubes if needed.
How to store and freeze leftover smoothies:
You can freeze smoothies for up to 3 months for meal prep. I like to freeze them in ice trays and store them in freezer-safe bags as “cubes.” When you are ready to enjoy, simply add to a glass and let thaw in the fridge for a few hours or overnight. You can also blend the smoothie ice cubes for a quick thaw.
