Avocado Mango Smoothie

DF GF V VG

This avocado mango smoothie is loaded with avocado, shredded coconut, frozen mango, medjool dates and lime juice. It’s thick, creamy and the perfect refreshing smoothie for summer!

It’s officially smoothie season!! When the weather is cold I don’t typically crave smoothies, but once the temps rise above 70, it’s smoothie time. Every day, all day. Which is why I’ve been sharing a ton of smoothie recipes lately!

They’re so easy and perfect for when you’re in a rush. You can literally just toss everything into the blender, blend for a minute, pour into a glass and your meal is ready.

I already have a basic mango smoothie with frozen mango here on the site, but today I’m sharing a version with fun add-ins like coconut, lime and avocado!

Lime, water, coconut, frozen mango, medjool dates, vanilla and avocado measured out on a table.

Ingredients Needed:

Here’s everything you need for this tasty smoothie!

  • cold water – instead of milk we’re using cold water for the liquid in the recipe. Of course, you’re welcome to use milk if you prefer!
  • unsweetened shredded coconut – a great source of fiber and I love the texture it adds to the smoothie as well.
  • avocado  make sure your avocado is pitted and you’re only using the flesh that you scooped out. I love using avocado in my smoothies because it adds healthy fat and makes them thicker and creamier. You can use a fresh or frozen avocado. Either works!
  • mango – nothing compares to the flavor of fresh mango, but I like using frozen in this recipe because it gives the smoothie the perfect texture.
  • medjool datesdates are an amazing natural sweetener. Using them instead of sugar will give your smoothie a delicious, natural sweetness. Just make sure to remove the pit before adding them to your blender! And feel free to skip the dates to lower the sugar content.
  • fresh lime juice – to boost the citrus flavor.
  • vanilla – a great flavor enhancer.

Adding Avocado to Smoothies

Avocado is such a great addition to smoothies. It makes smoothies extra creamy and smooth (without needing any dairy) and makes them more nutrient-dense and filling as well. The healthy fat in avocado is also perfect for helping with absorption of fat soluble vitamins like Vitamin A.

And because of its mild flavor, you usually can’t even taste avocado in smoothies. Especially if they’re blended with a flavorful fruit like mango.

tip!
Have extra avocados on hand that are perfectly ripe? Freeze them! Frozen avocados work great for smoothies. You can even find frozen avocado at stores now.

This smoothie actually reminds me of my avocado and lime tart, but in liquid form. It’s creamy, refreshing and perfectly blends mango, avocado and coconut together with a hint of lime!

Notes

Protein powder – I didn’t add protein powder to this smoothie, but if you need the extra boost of protein feel free to add some! 
Spinach – For some added nutrients and pop of color spinach would make a great addition to this smoothie. Just add a handful of baby spinach. 
Medjool dates – Feel free to skip the dates if you want to reduce the sugar content or add more if you want the smoothie to be sweeter.

      Hi!
      I just made this smoothie and it’s delicious! I never would have thought of this concoction. I don’t have dates but that’s ok. I added green protein to to this and I love it! In fact, I’m enjoying it as I write this lol Thank you for another great recipe 😊. I’ve used some of your recipes before but I never wrote in to tell you that I’ve enjoyed them. Keep up the good work!
