- ⅓ cup diced mango
- 1 cup milk
- Pour milk in to a blender
- Add mango
- Cover and blend on medium speed
- Feed frozen strawberries through opening in cover

Strawberry Mango Smoothie Ingredients
Strawberries are sweet as well as healthy. Whether frozen or fresh, they make your smoothie tasty and colorful. Remove the green tops if you are using fresh strawberries in your smoothie.
Strawberries provide vitamin C, flavonoids, iron and potassium to your diet.
Strawberries also contain cancer-fighting properties, so smoothie up!
Mangoes are a tropical fruit. Like most tropical fruits, mangoes are sweet, juicy and full of flavor.
Packed with antioxidants, mangoes also contain healthy amounts of vitamins A, C and E. These all help make a mango a good cancer fighting fruit.
Mangoes are also a great source of fiber. At the same time, they are low in calories and carbohydrates.
If you can’t find fresh mangoes at your local supermarket, you can usually find them in the canned or freezer sections.
Milk is a great source of casein and whey proteins. It also adds vitamin D, calcium and riboflavin to your smoothie.
You can use whole milk, or substitute 2% or 1% milk to reduce the fat in your smoothie.
Other options for milk include goat’s milk, soy milk, almond milk, coconut milk and rice milk.
