Smoothie Sunday: Avocado Mango Smoothie

As has been mentioned before here, I’m a big fan of avocados. They’re good for you, and taste yummy.  That being said, I don’t usually eat avocados for breakfast.  But smoothie Sunday seemed like a good chance to change that.  I added mango as a second flavor, since avocado and mango are paired in things like salsas and burritos.  The tang/acid of the mango helps cut through the creaminess of the avocado.  Since it’s so creamy I used the avocado like how I use the yogurt in most of my smoothies.

What you’ll need

Avocado Mango Smoothie:

  • 1 mango, skin and seed removed
  • 1 avocado, skin and pit removed
  • 6 ice cubes
  • ¼ – ½ cup orange juice
  • 1 tbsp mango chutney (optional)
  • Pinch of salt
  • Honey to taste

Blend the first 3 ingredients in a blender until smooth. Add the rest of the ingredients and blend well, tasting and adjusting salt and honey as needed.  Start with ¼ cup of orange juice, but this smoothie is pretty thick, so add more as necessary until it reaches desired texture.  Once everything is to your liking, pour into a tall glass and enjoy!

Don't be intimidated by the green!

  1. That looks really yummy, I can’t wait to try it. I’m going to pick up an avocado and mango from the grocery store on my way home from work tomorrow. I like to make smoothies on days when I’m too lazy to cook.
