Super Tasty Mango Strawberry Banana Smoothie

by Mira

Mango is a flavorful fruit, but you can enjoy its taste even more if you mix it with other flavorsome fruit like strawberry and banana, and honey, whipped cream, and coconut milk.

The result is one of the best smoothies you’ll ever taste: super delicious, with the perfect texture, and with many health benefits. One cup of mango (107 calories) brings you 12% DV of fiber, as well as 75% vitamin C, 25% vitamin A, and smaller, but still significant amounts of vitamins E and K, and B complex vitamins. Strawberries, too, have fiber, 12% DV per 49-calorie cup, and lots of vitamin C (150% per cup). Strawberries have been found to lower the bad cholesterol (LDL) and aid in weight loss by boosting your metabolism. Their phytonutrients have anti-inflammatory effects, helping people with arthritis. A powerful antioxidant food, strawberries also contain the spread of certain cancer cells.

Bananas bring you even more fiber than these two (23% DV per cup), but also more calories (200). They have a high content of B complex vitamins, however, which promote good energy and sustain the functioning of too many body processes to list here, from the nervous system to hair, skin, and nails.

Honey, one of my favorite foods, contains many phytonutrients which strengthen your body against infection, and may protect against tumors and certain forms of cancer, among other things.

Whipped cream is not that good for you because so much of it is artificial, but it helps create great texture and makes for a smoother taste. Finally, coconut milk is very healthy, because it contains lauric acid, which our bodies convert into monolaurins. These are compounds found only in human breast milk and coconuts. They strengthen the immune system and protect against bacterial, viral, and fungal infections.

And now the recipe!

I hope you'll try this smoothie and see for yourself how flavor-rich it is! And it's so easy to make: no powders, no fancy juices, just the fruit, honey, whipped cream, and coconut milk. It's a great way to get your daily servings of fruit, but don't overdo it, because it does have a few hundreds of calories. If you want something with less calories, see another recipe of mine, Puréed Fruit Cocktail with Honey and Mint, which you can easily turn into a smoothie by adding ice.

I never met a fresh fruit smoothie I didn't like, especially if a mango is involved. This one sounds yummy. Thanks!

Mira on 09/01/2015

Yes, I've tried many smoothies that summer and this one was a particularly good one :) It's a great one to serve guests because it's more special than a simple fruit smoothie.

Sounds divine, and I really like that you have sweetened it with honey instead of sugar. We are big mango fans at my house.

I often use avocado instead of bananas. I have to tweak the recipe a bit, but it's still very good.

Mira, Bananas and peanut butter are two things whose appearance, fragrance, and taste rank low on my food list. Your smoothie is wonderful -- particularly since I so love mangoes -- but do you have a suggestion for a replacement ingredient for bananas?

I love smoothies, the real all natural kind like th:)K

Wonderful smoothie!

Yes, this smoothie is both a treat and a light meal. Eating fruit and vegetables doesn't have to be boring (I did get bored with them in the past ;-). Thanks for visiting!

This can probably serve as light meal in hot summers like this one we are having right now, right? Certainly looks delicious. Thanks for the idea!
