Blueberry Mango Smoothie

Summer is smoothie season!  When you’re firing up the BBQ this Memorial Day, why not dust off the ol’ blender, too?

I love Jamba Juice, but their recipes often use a lot of fruit juice, which adds calories without adding much nutrition.  It’s pretty easy to make a smoothie at home that rivals Jamba in taste and texture, but beats them in nutrients.

I always keep frozen blueberries, raspberries, and mango chunks ready to go.  The mango is key — it adds a dense, creamy richness that makes them more like sorbet.

Here’s the recipe for one that I made earlier this week.  Took me all of three minutes.

Blueberry Mango Smoothie

By: Andrew Wilder
There's no ice or juice in this smoothie -- it's not necessary. The frozen fruit is cold enough! (Frozen fruit, if it's unsweetened and unprocessed, can be just as nutritious as fresh -- but a lot cheaper.)
Prep: 3 minutes
Cook: 1 minute
Total: 4 minutes
Servings: 2 servings


  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 large banana
  • 1 cup frozen blueberries
  • 1/2 cup frozen mango chunks
  • 2 tablespoons flaxseed meal
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract, optional


  • Throw everything in the blender and hang on tight while it works through those mango chunks. You may need to stop, give it a little stir, and start it up again.
  • Continue until well blended, and then enjoy!

Andrew, I make this smoothie frequently and I like it a lot. I do the same thing you do with the frozen fruits like blueberries and mango. Trader Joes has good prices on the frozen fruit. My major variant is that I use Hemp Seed protein powder from T.J.’s
