This incredibly simple 4-ingredient banana mango smoothie bowl is naturally sweet, gluten-free, dairy-free, and just looks like a bowl of yellow happiness.
Top this easy mango smoothie bowl with chopped nuts, fresh fruit, or homemade granola.
Is This Mango and Banana Smoothie Bowl Healthy?
Oh yes! The following ingredients list will give you a good idea of what nutritional value you are adding to you day when including the smoothie bowl in your meal planning:
- Mango – this fruit contains vitamin A and C, minerals like copper and folate, as well as antioxidants. It’s even been known to have anticancer effects!
- Banana – this is naturally high in fiber and potassium, keeping you fuller for longer and assisting your nervous system and muscles.
- Almond milk – a low calorie, dairy-free and gluten-free option that’s high in Vitamin E and a great source of calcium too!
- Maple syrup – not only a great vegan sweetener but also contains potassium, zinc, magnesium, and calcium.
- Fresh blueberries – change this up depending on what’s in season!
- Passion fruit seeds – about 2 passion fruits
- Granola – make your own, or use store bought
- Shredded coconut – you can use coconut flakes too!
How to Make a Thick Mango Smoothie Bowl
Add frozen mango, frozen banana, almond milk, and maple syrup to a food processor or blender. Blend at high speed until smooth.
Add a little extra almond milk if you’d like a thinner smoothie.
Divide the smoothie mixture into two bowls.
Top them with some fresh blueberries, passion fruit seeds, granola, and shredded coconut.
How to Enjoy This Banana Mango Smoothie Bowl
Apart from enjoying this recipe as a smoothie bowl, you could just as easily enjoy it as a mango sorbet when chilled since the mango smoothie in itself is pretty thick in consistency.
What to Serve with your Frozen Mango Smoothie Bowl
I love how much fun and creativity you can have when it comes to topping a smoothie bowl! You can dress them up for a special breakfast treat or keep them super simple with minimal additions – it’s really up to you!
For this mango banana smoothie bowl, I highly recommend adding topping ingredients such as fresh blueberries, passion fruit seeds, a sprinkling of your favorite granola, and shredded coconut (sweetened or unsweetened).
Go right ahead and add other delicious toppings of your preference such as chopped nuts, other berries such as raspberries and blackberries, and other varieties of seeds such as chia seeds. There are no rules here!
Can I add Supplements to this Vegan Mango Smoothie Bowl?
Absolutely! If you’re interested in getting a boost of protein into this meal, consider including a scoop or two of your favorite plant-based protein powder.
Collagen powder (the non-bovine variety) would also be a great addition to any vegan smoothie bowl. You may need to increase the almond milk used though as these powders can cause the smoothie bowl to become even thicker.
Tips for Making an Easy Mango Smoothie Bowl
- Frozen fruit is used when making smoothie bowls as a way to thicken the consistency of the mixture. You could also use semi-frozen fruit instead or add ice cubes in a blender with fresh fruit to create your smoothie bowl.
- If you want to add protein to your smoothie bowl you can add in a scoop or two of protein powder.
- Easily swap out the frozen mango for frozen strawberries to make a banana strawberry smoothie bowl instead. Once you get the hang of making a smoothie bowl, you can pretty much adapt the basic recipe to make a variety of smoothie bowls.
- While I’ve used almond milk for this easy mango smoothie bowl, you can use coconut milk instead or any favorite non-dairy milks.
