Smoothies are a delicious way to start the day and our easy mango smoothie with yoghurt is certainly no exception. Made with exotic flavours like mango, fresh orange juice, and lemon juice, it has plenty of fresh fruit flavour as well as a beautiful yellow colour. Icing sugar and natural yoghurt give the smoothie a delightfully creamy and fluffy texture.


  • Transfer the diced mango and other ingredients to a blender.
  • Blend at the highest setting for about 45 seconds or until the smoothie's texture is even.
  • Taste it and pour it into four cold glasses. Serve immediately.

The easiest way to cut and dice a mango is to first remove the two 'cheeks' by cutting around the stone in the middle. Place the mango on a cutting board with one of its ends pointing towards you. Now cut downward with a knife and guide it around the stone. Do this on the other side as well so you get two mango cheeks. 


Place one of these cheeks on a thick tea towel and use your knife to slice down the length of the fruit. Make sure not to cut through the skin. Turn the mango 90° and repeat the motion to create a criss-cross pattern. Invert the mango so the cubes of golden yellow fruit flesh pop out from the skin. Cut these cubes off by holding the cheek at a slight angle. Repeat the process with the other cheek to get your mango diced and ready for the blender.

Questions about mango smoothies

With our recipe for mango smoothie, you have the blueprint for how to start a day right. Check out our answers to some of the most frequently asked questions about mango smoothies below to learn more about them, including how you can prepare them in advance to make those busy mornings a breeze.

What is a mango smoothie?
A mango smoothie is a classic smoothie with fresh, exotic, sweet mangoes. Smoothies are beverages made by blending fruits, berries, or vegetables with a liquid base like milk, yogurt, coconut milk, or juice; our smoothie is made with mango and a liquid base of orange juice, lemon juice, milk, and natural yogurt. Puréeing the smoothie ingredients in a blender makes a thick, creamy, and of course smooth drink – it is from this latter attribute the beverage gets its name. These mango smoothies are preferably enjoyed cold or served in freezer-cold glasses.
How to make a mango smoothie?
Homemade mango smoothies are incredibly quick to prepare. After you have diced the mango, simply transfer all the smoothie ingredients to a blender and blend at the highest setting for around 45 seconds or until it has the desired even consistency. Give it a taste to see if it needs more sweetness or acidity and pour it into ice-cold glasses so you and yours can enjoy them at once.
How to make a mango smoothie with frozen mango?
Mango smoothies can be made using either fresh or frozen fruit and a fresh and frozen mango smoothie will taste equally good. If you are using frozen mango, simply use it directly from the freezer and use a wooden spoon to push down the mixture occasionally while blending to ensure it is evenly blended. With frozen mangoes, you may not even need the ice cubes. This way, you can make delicious mango smoothies all year round and if you buy too many mangoes to eat in time, dice, freeze and use them in mango smoothies later.
Can you make a mango smoothie in advance?
Homemade smoothies may be prepared in advance in two ways. You can prepare the mango smoothies and store them in the refrigerator for up to 2 days or you can prepare them and freeze them in freezer bags, freezer-safe containers, or mason jars for up to 3 months. Thaw the frozen mango smoothie overnight in the refrigerator so it is ready to be enjoyed in the morning.

Sweet mango mixed with fresh orange and lemon juice

A simple mango smoothie yoghurt is made even better when you add freshly squeezed orange and lemon juice into the mix. The acidity of these citrus fruits beautifully brightens the sweetness and creaminess of the mango, and the result is a delicious yoghurt mango smoothie that is sweet, sour, and a little bit tangy.

Add texture and freshness with natural yoghurt

Using natural yoghurt as part of the liquid base for your smoothie is a good way to ensure a creamy and thick mango smoothie. The yoghurt also makes sure that this smoothie can be enjoyed as a quick breakfast meal and introduces a slight tangy bite into the sweet smoothie that makes the flavour profile quite well-rounded.

Make it your own

Mango smoothie recipes are the perfect base for exploring different smoothie varieties. If you are in love with the yellow colour and tropical flavour profile of our delicious mango smoothie with orange and lemon juice, a way to preserve both colour and texture while mixing it up is by adding pineapple. The addition of this bright and vibrant fruit is an even more tropical mango smoothie with a tarter, fresher flavour.

Besides pineapple, a great option when experimenting with your mango smoothie is to add raspberries. These colourful red berries will give your mango smoothies a pretty pink colour, while their seeds will add a slight crunchiness to the otherwise smooth beverage. The combination of mango and raspberry is wonderful as the natural tartness of the berries complements the mango’s sweet flavour.
