Every 2-3 months, I spend a week or two trying to get creative in using up what is in my pantry. It really helps me use what I have, instead of discovering 6 month old chili that has a lovely layer of freezer burn on top, or half a bag of frozen fruit that is no longer edible.

It’s one of those little tricks that has a lot of benefits–I use what I have, I save money by not buying more until I’ve used what I have, and I get to enjoy food that’s quick and easy!

Smoothies are one of my go-tos, since we ALWAYS have frozen fruit in the freezer. Especially during these dog days of summer when it’s just. so. hot. I’m always grateful for something cool and tropical to sip.

This peach mango smoothie recipe is one of my forever favorites. Here’s why…

Why This Peach Mango Smoothie Recipe is Awesome:

  1. For one thing, it’s basically like drinking liquid sunshine. The sunny color, creamy texture, and light tropical flavors make this peach mango smoothie close-your-eyes good and SO refreshing whether you’re starting your day or using it for an afternoon snack pick-me-up.
  2. I also love that it’s about as flexible as it gets. Have a few handfuls of greens in the fridge? Toss them in! Want to stir in some chia seeds or collagen for some healthy fats or protein? Go for it. You can even swap out the banana for some strawberries, papaya, or pineapple to give it a slightly different flavor.
  3. Simply put, this peach mango smoothie is like a flavor vacation. That’s why it’s got “bliss” in the title! Now, if it could also bring me a hammock and ocean breezes…

Now that you know why we love it, let’s dive in and make one!

Here’s What You Need To Make Peach Mango Smoothies:

  • Frozen Peaches. First up is frozen peaches. Look for bright yellow or orange-y peaches if you can. Usually, the more vibrant the color, the better the flavor! During the summer, I like to freeze my own peaches when they’re extra ripe, then I use store-bought the rest of the year.
  • Frozen Mango. Then, a bit of frozen mango. I love the sweetness and fiber in a mango! Again, the deeper the color, the sweeter and tastier the mango. (I like that Trader Joe’s frozen mango chunks bags are clear, so I can choose well.)
  • Banana (Or More Mango). Next, we like adding just a *tiny* bit of banana (fresh or frozen) for some sweetness without needing honey, agave, maple syrup, or other sweetener. I don’t taste the banana with this little of an amount, but if you HATE bananas in smoothies, just add more mango.
  • Orange Juice. To play up all those tropical notes and bright orange/yellow colors, I add orange juice. The better the quality, the better the smoothie will taste. (Simply Orange is our favorite.)
  • Water. To help the smoothie blend without adding more sugar, I usually add some water as well. The exact amount you need will depend on how frozen your fruit is and how strong your blender is. Start small, and add more as needed.

Mix It Up! Try One Of These Twists:

  • Go for Greens! This peach mango bliss smoothie works GREAT as a green smoothie. The sweet peaches and mangos are awesome with spinach or kale. Even my picky kids will drink them this way.
  • Add Some Protein or Healthy Fats! This mango peach smoothie absolutely plays well with others, so I often play with the mix-ins. Some of my favorites are 1-2 Tbsp of chia seeds or a scoop of collagen protein. Collagen is flavorless and odorless and is a great easily digestible source of protein that we really like. This one and this one are our two favorite brands. If you’re vegan or vegetarian, you’ll want to stick with chia seeds or this unflavored vegan protein/fiber blend.
  • Not a banana fan? No worries. Try additional peach or mango as a substitute, or swap in something else–papaya, pineapple, passionfruit, or strawberries are all fantastic!
  • Get Creative. You can also get creative by adding a splash of coconut milk, avocado, or Greek yogurt for some richness, a little vanilla extract for an Orange Julius-type twist, or a squeeze of lime juice to brighten it up even more!

FAQ + Tips For The Best Peach Mango Smoothie:

A Note on Blenders. My blender (named Beyonce) is like the 5th member of my family. We’ve used it over 1400 times (there’s a blend counter), and she’s still going strong. If you’re ever in the market, I highly recommend these ones. Buying refurbished can help you save!

Can I Use Fresh Fruit? I prefer frozen fruit to fresh peach or fresh mango here, because it gives the smoothie a thicker, frostier, creamier texture. If all you have is fresh fruit, you can add some ice cubes to add frostiness.

Add Some Protein or Healthy Fats! This smoothie absolutely plays well with others, so I often play with the mix-ins. Some of my favorites are 1-2 Tbsp of chia seeds or a scoop of collagen protein. Collagen is flavorless and odorless and is a great easily digestible source of protein that we really like. If you’re vegan or vegetarian, you’ll want to stick with chia seeds (though I hear this is awesome).

Not a banana fan? No worries. Try subbing in additional peach or mango, or swap in something else–papaya, pineapple, passionfruit, or strawberries are all fantastic!

  1. I love your haircut! It looks extremely modern and up to date! I think the color is perfect; not drab at all, and I don’t think your face looks rounder. You look very fresh and more grown up!

  2. I have hair with the same texture and I do have to say that though I don’t currently have highlights when i did get highlights it helped with styling. My hair is really super mega healthy (i.e. I have to wash it every day, thank you super oily fine hair). But the highlights helped “damage” it in a good way. Gave it a little more texture. Helped with curling and body and my hair holding style. I haven’t really done highlights for the past five years for budget reasons but I look forward to going back someday. Anyway, just a tip beyond the look of highlights, they might help your fine hair situation too.

    I think it has a lot more body and looks great.

    And i want that smoothie. Mango, oh man I love mango.

  3. Peach Mango Bliss sounds amazing – we are just starting to get the sun back here as spring creeps in and this would be perfect for tomorrow morning.

    As for your hair… it looks wonderful! I think the new cut suits your face shape beautifully! I always have mixed feelings about my hair and it is so frustrating that I can never get the same look as the day I have it done!

  4. I love your new haircut, it looks amazing on you!! It always takes me a few days to decide what I really think of a new haircut on myself, so I understand the feeling:) But it really does look fantastic on you and doesn’t make your face look rounder at all!

    Also, I LOVE mango. I will most definitely be trying that smoothie!

  5. I love the cut. I don’t think it makes your face look rounder, but rather a little more healthy glow-y. And, while I think the color is dandy, I am a big proponent of highlights. They do so much to lift one’s spirits and take something from good to jazzy/sparkly/shimmery. They are a fun option, like you say, if you aren’t feeling the new do after a couple weeks.

  6. LOVE the hair! I could be a leeetle biased though as I recently chopped off my hair into a very similar style 🙂 I still miss my long hair at times (and have the exact same fears as you! Does it make my face look round?!), but overall, I feel more put together with the shorter style. I really do think it looks cute on you! Give it a week or two to settle into the style and get used to the change.

  7. The mango smoothy makes me feel a little droolie-ish…

    The beautiful new fun hairstyle makes me feel similar to what Andrea expressed…It just makes you look healthy, energetic, and vibrant, and the gorgeous smile seals the deal.

  8. LOVE the hair! Not at all face-rounding! It just makes your killer cheek bones more prominent, which isn’t a bad thing. We’ve been on a smoothie fix lately too! This will go great with some green pancakes for St. Patty’s Day!

  9. Your hair looks great 🙂 And that smoothie sounds wonderful… too bad I can’t handle sweet right now… Maybe come August, when my nausea will be gone 🙂

  10. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your hair! And, I actually thought, from the second pic, that you got it colored as well. I think it’s a beautiful shade of blonde! I can understand the desire to color it, though–especially with summer coming. Then again, if you just enjoy sitting in the sun a few times, it will probably lighten/highlight itself!
