This refreshing raspberry and mango smoothie is the perfect quick and healthy breakfast that requires no cooking! Ready in 10 minutes using a high powered blender, it’s a great morning smoothie that combines fruit, chia seeds, plant- based milk, orange juice, and collagen peptides for added protein (optional). A nourishing way to start your day!
My current situation is my side deck on a warm day with a tall glass of this Raspberry Mango Smoothie!! It’s perfectly sweetened with a nice tangy kick, and is so delicious for a hot summer day. I’m loving this as a pre-workout drink on a summer morning, or a post pool drink in the afternoon.
As a nutritionist, I am always looking for ways to add in more fiber, antioxidants, and protein. Smoothies are the absolute best way to get most bang for your buck when it comes to nutritious breakfasts or snacks. They allow you to feel satisfied and are loaded with the essential macro nutrients (protein, healthy fats, and good carbohydrates). My Pineapple Smoothie and Blueberry Breakfast Smoothie are a few of my favorites.
I am especially loving the fact that my kids are 100% on board with quick and healthy breakfast recipes. This makes feeding them a healthy breakfast in the summer so dang easy. I have to give credit to my teenager for coming up with this combo. The one who (surprisingly) is not my smoothie lover! She gave me the fruit combo, and we tweaked this a few times to get it just right.
How to make Raspberry mango smoothie:
Here is what you’ll need to make your smoothie:
- Dairy-Free Milk (my favorite is Good Karma Flaxmilk!)
- Splash of orange juice
- Frozen raspberries
- Frozen mango
- Chia seeds
- Unflavored collagen peptides
Blend until smooth and creamy!!
Variations and adaptations:
- Orange juice: After our first trial of this drink, we decided that a splash of orange juice was needed to kick it up a notch and give it even more tanginess. Feel free to use an orange in it’s place (we tried that too and it worked perfectly!).
- Chia Seeds: are added for a boost of healthy fats (helps us to feel fuller longer). You can replace with flax seed or hemp seeds.
- Collagen Peptides: I am loving my Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides. I add in a scoop to any smoothie, and it has zero taste! Not only does one scoop give me a huge boost of protein, but it also helps to support bone and joint health. I usually add the scoop to my personal smoothie, and let the kids enjoy their smoothie plain.
