Start your day with a flavorful fruit smoothie. This drink is as delicious as breakfast, but also serves well as an afternoon snack or even a frosty dessert.

How to Make It

Arrange the mango cubes in a single layer on a baking sheet; freeze until firm (about 1 hour). Place frozen mango and the remaining ingredients in a blender. Process until smooth.

Chef's Notes

Freeze the cubed mango overnight in an airtight container to make this smoothie a snap to throw together (for variety, try substituting frozen berries for the mango). Remember to let frozen mango thaw for 15 minutes to soften slightly. The dry milk is optional, but one tablespoon provides about 100 milligrams of calcium.

This is a very good recipe! I used two mangoes and whole milk. It was delicious, but the banana did overpower the mangoes, even with two mangoes. I would definitely make this again, but with more mangoes or less banana.

This is good! I'm drinking it right now haha. I didn't feel like waiting for the mango to freeze though so I just used fresh mango. Also I didn't do the dry milk boost. But anyway, it's awesome and it filled me up!

This smoothie is incredibly delicious! I used frozen mango, left out the milk powder, and used agave syrup instead of honey. I froze the smoothies to eat at work for breakfast--has a consistency like ice cream and is so good! I will definitely make these again.

Great texture, though the flavor needed punching up. I doubled the mango, vanilla, and honey and it definitely gave it a stronger flavor. If followed exactly, the original recipe is good though the banana and milk seem to dominate and leave you with a very smooth and creamy smoothie that is somewhat lacking in mango flavor.
