Fresh Mango Smoothie from Frozen Mangoes

Frozen Mangoes make the best fresh tasting smoothies! 

When it comes to the perfect texture of smoothies, frozen fruit is the way to go. Especially frozen mangoes! And especially with kids.  Smoothies made from frozen fruit have:

  • Better texture. It feels more like a slushy or milkshake, rather than watered down.
  • Better taste.  Fruit is able to be frozen at the peak of ripeness, rather than buying fruit that isn’t quite ripe yet.

But what we really like about using frozen mangoes is that fresh mangoes are not that easy to cut and peel! A whole mango, after cut and peeled, usually only has a small amount of flesh left! Yet frozen mangoes are ALL flesh with no cutting necessary.  Smoothie’s aside, even when snacking we prefer frozen  mangoes.  The texture in the mango itself doesn’t feel stringy or mushy. Frozen mangoes are just better!

Frozen fruit is also great for putting smoothie making into a simple and easy breakfast.  We try to keep frozen fruit on hand, just for smoothies! Usually we’ll do it because we got a great deal on fruit.. or because we grew some.  The most common fruits we freeze for easy smoothie making besides mangoes are strawberries, bananas, cherries, and peaches.  We also spend some time making frozen smoothie packs.  The frozen smoothie packs we make include a cube of yogurt to make the smoothie creamier.
