If you’re looking for a healthy mango smoothie with kale, then you’re going to love this one! It’s become our go-to over the last few months. If you’re new to drinking green smoothies, this is a great recipe to start with. It’s loaded with flavor and fruitiness from the mango, pineapple, and orange juice. You really can hardly taste the bitterness of the kale. 

Ingredients for the Best Mango Kale Smoothie

After a lot of testing my wife and I have perfected our kale mango smoothie! Here are the ingredients you’ll need. We’ve given you some variations in the next section if you want to change it up some.

  • Kale – Kale is one of the best vegetables for smoothies! It’s loaded with Vitamin A, C, and dietary fiber. If you like this one, we have a whole list of kale smoothie recipes you can try!
  • Mango – Mangos are one of the best fruits for smoothies because they give a great natural sweetness. This mango kale smoothie is packed with Vitamin C and tropical flavor. 
  • Orange juice – Orange juice is one of the best liquids for smoothies! It’s healthy, sweet, citrusy, and is great for green smoothies. It’s the perfect pairing for this mango kale smoothie! 
  • Pineapple – Pineapple is one of our favorite ingredients! It’s great for adding tropical flavor and sweetness. It’s also an incredible source of Vitamin C. 
  • Chia seeds – Chia seeds will add a whopping 5.6g of fiber to your smoothie with just one tablespoon! It’s one of the best ingredients for making high fiber smoothies.
  • Shredded coconut – Shredded coconut is one of the best ways to jazz up your smoothies with a bit of tropical flavor. You don’t need much, but a tablespoon will go a long way. It’s a great way to sweeten smoothies!
  • Lime juice – A squeeze of lime juice is great for giving smoothies a hint of citrus and freshness! It’ll also help your smoothies last in the fridge and prevent oxidation.

Variations to this Recipe

I really wanted to make the best possible kale mango smoothie out there. The big challenge though was trying to keep it under 300 calories! If you don’t mind a few extra calories, here are a few additions you can make:

  1. Banana – Adding a banana will make this smoothie creamier and it’ll add a bit of natural sweetness! Bananas are loaded with potassium and vitamin B6. 
  2. Greek yogurt – Adding ¼ to ½ cup of greek yogurt is one of the best ways to add protein to smoothies without protein powder.
  3. Coconut milk – We wanted to give this smoothie a tropical, citrusy flair so we went with orange juice, but you could definitely give it a splash of coconut milk! Coconut milk is one of the best milks for smoothies!
  4. Spinach – If you don’t have any kale, you can add spinach! Spinach blends more easily than kale and is a great source of vitamin K. You can also check out our list of healthy spinach smoothies!

4 Tips for Making The Best Mango Smoothie with Kale 

Over the last couple of years my wife and I have made hundreds of different smoothies! We make smoothies at least 4-5x a week and have written 150+ articles all about smoothies. Here are four quick tips to help you make the best mango kale smoothie possible:

  1. Soak your kale – I recommend soaking your kale in water for 30 minutes before you make your smoothie. You definitely don’t have to do this, but it will soften up the kale and make it blend way better.
  2. Blend the greens first – One expert trick is to blend your kale by itself with your liquid smoothie base. This will get it thoroughly chopped up into an almost green juice. Then add the rest of your ingredients! The last thing you want is stringy kale bits in your smoothie. 
  3. Use a high powered blender – Using a strong blender is essential to making great smoothies! We’ve done tons of blender reviews, but our favorite blender for green smoothies is the Vitamix E310. This smoothie doesn’t have any ice so it’s also one of our favorite NutriBullet weight loss smoothies!
  4. Make them in advance – If you want to drink smoothies every day it can be a hassle to make them fresh. Make a big batch on Monday morning and store leftover smoothies in the fridge for the week! You can also freeze smoothies to save for 3-4 months!
