Creamy, refreshing, and simple to make…this mango smoothie without yogurt makes for a great breakfast or snack! It uses just 3 ingredients and has a delicious sweet flavor from fresh ataulfo mangoes. Don’t miss the recipe!
You will only need 3 main ingredients to make yourself a mango smoothie at home! Here they are:
Mangoes – I use ataulfo mangoes and I highly recommend sticking with this option if you can find them! They are also known as honey mangoes, and they are extra sweet and juicy! Typically smaller than regular supermarket mangoes, ataulfo mangoes are yellow in color, not green.
I first tried these mangoes in the Philippines, and when I came home I was so sad that they weren’t available in the US…until I found them! Costco often sells ataulfo mangoes in a 6 pack, and I have also found them in the produce section at Smart and Final. Here is what they look like:
Frozen peaches – next up, you’ll need peaches! You can either buy frozen peaches or freeze them yourself! I bought fresh peaches and froze them myself. (See this article for cutting clingstone peaches).
Fruit juice – Finally, some kind of juice will help everything blend smoothly. I used orange-peach-mango juice in this recipe! This tends to be a pretty easy juice combo to find (I’ve seen it at Smart and Final and also Trader Joes).
What can you replace yogurt with in a smoothie?
There are a variety of things you can replace yogurt with to make a non-dairy smoothie.
My personal favorite thing to do is to use frozen fruit + fruit juice. The frozen fruit thickens the smoothie and the fruit juice sweetens it! The result is a smooth, thick texture.
Here are more things you can replace yogurt with in a smoothie:
- non-dairy yogurt (I like So Delicious’ Coconut yogurt!)
- Peanut butter or other nut butter
- Pumpkin puree or other purees
- Avocado (haven’t tried this one but I hear it works well!)

How to make a mango smoothie with no yogurt:
Whenever you’re making a smoothie without yogurt, there are a few things to consider. Below I will explain my thought process behind this smoothie, and how you can customize your mango smoothie!
Step 1: Choose your fruits
If you’re coming up with your own mango smoothie without yogurt, the first step is to choose your fruits! Do you want it to be all mango, or have a complementing fruit? For this recipe, we will be using peaches. Mangoes and peaches go very well together!
Step 2: Think about thickener
The next thing to think about is how you will thicken the smoothie since you’re not using yogurt. Yogurt often adds creaminess and thickness to smoothies. To replace that in this smoothie, we are first off using ataulfo mangoes. These mangoes are sweet and will provide a creamy texture.
Next, we’re using frozen peaches rather than fresh. The frozen fruit will thicken the smoothie! And finally, we will use fruit juice for the liquid rather than any dairy.
Step 3: Blend
Once you’ve decided what you want in the smoothie, mix it all up in the blender! I used a vitamix in this recipe.
3-Ingredient Mango Smoothie Without Yogurt
- Vitamix or Blender
- 6 oz ataulfo mango
- 5 oz frozen peaches
- 1/2 cup orange peach mango juice or fruit juice of choice
- ice cubes optional
- Cut ataulfo mangoes into chunks. You'll need about 2 mangoes to get 6 oz. Add the cut mango to the blender.
- Add 5 oz frozen peaches and 1/2 cup fruit juice.
- Blend until smooth. If desired, add a few ice cubes to desired thickness.
- Pour into a glass and enjoy!
- I prefer to use fresh, ataulfo mangoes in this recipe because they are very sweet! If you sub frozen mango, you will need to add more juice and possibly sweetener.
- If you want to use fresh peaches rather than frozen, add more ice cubes to thicken.
- Feel free to use any fruit juice you have on hand; orange-peach-mango just works well because it has both the mango and peach flavors!
More Questions about mango smoothies:
Can I add other fruit to this smoothie?
For sure! You can add another fruit besides the mango and peaches, or you can substitute the peaches for a different frozen fruit. Feel free to get creative!
Can I use frozen mango?
You can, but be aware that frozen mango is usually not as sweet as the delicious fresh ataulfo mangoes.
How do I sweeten a mango smoothie?
Whether you use frozen or fresh mango, you may want the smoothie to be a little sweeter. If that’s the case, feel free to add a dash of maple syrup, agave, or honey! These mix into the smoothie really easily.
How do I know if ataulfo mangoes are ripe?
Make sure to choose ataulfo mangoes that are very yellow, but without black spots! If the mangoes develop black spots, they are generally still safe to eat, but may be getting overripe. I actually like waiting till they have just a few black spots because then I know they will be extra sweet.
If you’re not going to be eating the mangoes for a few days, you may want to select ones that still have a tint of green. These are not quite ripe, but they will be soon! You can ripen them on the counter, or put them in a paper bag to speed up the process.
Can I store this mango smoothie for later?
While you can save your mango smoothie in the fridge for later, I recommend enjoying it right after making it. The texture and flavor will be the best if you drink the smoothie right away!
I hope you enjoy this easy mango smoothie recipe without yogurt! Feel free to adjust it and make it your own, and be sure to check out my other smoothie and drink recipes. Enjoy!
