Mango Smoothie Bowl – A thick mango smoothie base is topped with healthy toppings to make for a filling meal any time of the day
It’s time for healthy recipe number two this month! Lucky for you, I’ve been craving smoothies hardcore this month so this recipe was a no-brainer.
Instead of making a plain, old smoothie, I decided to use this opportunity to make my first smoothie bowl. Smoothie bowls have always intrigued me because they allow me to eat my smoothie instead of drink them, which I knew it would make it last a million times longer. You know, it’s the same theory as milkshakes vs ice cream.
Because smoothie bowls are eaten instead of sipped, you can load them with all your favorite healthy toppings: nuts, granola, fruit, chia seeds, shaved coconut – whatever you want! These toppings also help fill you up while also getting tons of nutrients.
Alright…without further ado, here is my Mango Smoothie Bowl!
When deciding what flavor to make, I wanted fruit rich in Vitamin C to help build immunity for the insane cold/flu season going on this year. So I decided to go with mango. I love the flavor of mango, especially in a smoothie so this flavor was a win-win!
To make this smoothie bowl, it’s not much more work than a smoothie – just less liquid. Because of that, I needed to use my food processor to break down the frozen chunks of mango and banana. But you can use a fancy Vitamix or equivalent high-performing blender, if you have one.
Simply add your frozen fruit to your food processor/blender, add some honey, milk and/or juice, and then blend until smooth. Because this smoothie is super thick, it may take a couple minutes to get it smooth without all the extra liquid.
This recipe is probably the easiest one you’ll find on the blog so you really don’t need any tips to get this right the first time. The only tip I have for ya is regarding the blending process. If you’re having issues getting it super smooth, add a little extra milk or juice and that should do the trick.
There you have it – a yummy, healthy treat to help you get your serving of immunity-boosting Vitamin C this season. Plus, it’s a great way to get a break from the hearty soups and stews. You’re gonna love this refreshing treat!

This is absolutely delicious! I love mango and making it a smoothie bowl is perfect. A great breakfast or snack!
My daughter and I are obsessed with mangos. We will splurge on the pre-cut package at the store and sit on the kitchen floor just eating it out of the container instead of putting away the groceries. I can’t wait to make this for her, she will love it!
So obsessed with smoothie bowls, especially around spring time and summer! This mango smoothie bowl looks delicious!

Smoothie bowls are so much fun! Love the color combination here with that pop of red from the berries. And coconut chips *always* make me swoon!

Fresh mangos are so delicious. Now that I finally know how to cut them, this would make a great breakfast or lunch.
You can just use frozen mango to avoid cutting altogether!

I love mango and I eat it almost every morning! This recipe looks so good and it is my kind of breakfast. If you love mango you should try this Thai mango sticky rice as a dessert or breakfast if you like: https://ethnicspoon.com/how-to-make-thai-mango-sticky-rice/

I need to just buy frozen mango like you do- I have the worst time cutting up fresh ones! This sounds delicious!

I am all about anything mango. This works for me as dessert, too! I want to try some of your other recipes. That Pineapple and Melon Fruit Salad looks so refreshing!
Me too – mango is my obsession right now! Thanks so much for the love!
That looks delicious! I’ve never had a smoothie bowl before, they seem very popular right now.

This looks heavenly! I love mango, and I love the mango/raspberry combo, so this would be right up my alley! It looks perfect for those mornings when I can’t be bothered to make an effort with breakfast, it looks so easy!
So true! I love it for afternoon snacks too!
Looks healthy and good, especially in your pretty little bowls. But my eye went right to the cowboy quest in the sidebar. Why must I crave the unhealthy choices? 🙂
Haha I don’t blame ya – that Cowboy Queso is phenomenal!
