Two Simple Smoothie Recipes for Mint and Mango Lovers

I love smoothies and parties. You can often see me dancing and singing in my kitchen with an avocado in hand. Sometimes I have an audience, other times, it’s just me in my smoothie lab. I love playing around with different ingredients from frozen veggies to colorful superfoods. Want to create your own party with some plants? (You can thank Talia for the play on words or listen to her awesome podcast – Party in my Plants.) All you need are a few ingredients, an awesome high speed blender and family that’s open to trying new flavors. Here are a few of our recent favorites: Catch Me Mint and Mango Infusion Smoothies. Check out the recipes below and our healthy living page for more. 

If you’re not a smoothie fan, I encourage you to consider them. Why? Smoothies are such an easy way to pack nutrients in your diet. They’re also portable. I especially love them because they’re easy to prepare in bulk and eat throughout the week. Have you heard my healthy food hack? Freeze smoothies – pull them out in the early morning and throw in your bag. They will defrost throughout the day for a middle of the afternoon snack. Or, let the frozen smoothie defrost for 30 minutes and eat it as a healthy ice cream substitute.

What are your favorite smoothie combinations?

  1. I love these recipes. Can you use fresh mint in the mint smoothie instead of essential oil? I have fresh mint growing all over my yard.

    • I’ve done it with fresh mint…and the color changes a bit. I think using essential oils is easiest but play around with fresh mint. I LOVE growing mint, too.

  2. Hey Caryn, I’m very Glad to found your Recipe about Mint & Mango’s Simple Smoothie Recipes. It looks very yummy. I’m gonna try it today, Thanks for Sharing.

    • Let me know what you think. Enjoy. I happen to LOVE the mint one the best. However I’m a huge mango fan, too, so like the mango infused one, as well. Have fun with it.

  3. Hi Caryn,
    I’m just getting into smoothies myself and these both look delicious! In the Catch me Mint, how much do the dates contribute to the flavor? My brother and I are both picky eaters but I think I could get him to try it if the taste of the dates isn’t too strong. Thanks!

    • Honestly, if you puree the dates, they don’t taste date-y – just sweet. I would suggest putting the medjool dates in water for 30 minutes to soften them. Then they are easier to blend/puree in the blender. Occasionally, if we don’t blend them enough there will be small chunks of dates in the smoothie. But letting them sit and soften in water eliminates this. Good luck and let me know what you and your brother think.
