Prep Time:
5 mins
Total Time:
1 hrs 5 mins


  • 1 cup cubed peeled ripe mango

  • ¾ cup sliced ripe banana (about 1 medium)

  • cup fat-free milk

  • 1 tablespoon nonfat dry milk (optional)

  • 1 teaspoon honey

  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Arrange the mango cubes in a single layer on a baking sheet; freeze until firm (about 1 hour). Place frozen mango, banana, milk, dry milk (if using), honey and vanilla extract in a blender. Process until smooth.


Freeze the cubed mango overnight in an airtight container to make this smoothie a snap to throw together (for variety, try substituting frozen berries for the mango). Remember to let frozen mango thaw for 15 minutes to soften slightly. The dry milk is optional, but one tablespoon provides about 100 milligrams of calcium.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
