Dairy-Free Almond Mango Smoothie

by Amie on July 29, 2013


Lately I’ve been dreaming of using mango’s in my smoothies.

I’m not really sure why.

Or where these dreams are coming from.

Or what dreaming about mango’s even means…

Almond-Breeze-Smoothie Refreshing

 But I just took it as a sign to get out my blender and use this tender sweet fruit to make a little dairy-free recipe magic happen in my kitchen.

I mean come on…it’s summer.

And to me, mango’s scream ‘Summer’.

Don’t they?


The best part about this smoothie is that I used fresh cilantro to add a kick of flavor without any added sugar! It’s one of my latest dairy free dessert recipes that I serve with a sprinkle of coconut flakes, fresh cilantro, mango, cinnamon and almond milk. O ya, and a lot of ice cubes.

Pretty easy, right?

Almond-Breeze-Smoothie Recipe

You guys, if you are a coconut fan you are going to drool over this smoothie. It’s pretty addicting. Even my father (who is Not a coconut fan) loved every sip and I’ll be making this for him every time I’m at the beach this summer to visit my parents.

I really hope you’re not a coconut-hater. I know there are a few of you out there. But if you are- no need to worry…simply add in 1/2 tsp. cocoa powder instead of the coconut flakes for a sweet touch.

Fresh Cilantro

And if you don’t like mango, well then- I guess you’re going to have to look for another smoothie recipe. Unless you want to substitute it with cantaloupe- but that’s your choice.

Have fun. Whip out your dusty blender.

And don’t forget to have a bunch of ice ready to toss in.

It’s pretty magical.


Especially on a summer morning (and the kids love this one too)!

Have a great week.

YUm! Cilantro? I love cilantro. I have a crisper full of mangos waiting to be puree’d into this smoothy. I just need to get me some almond milk ;)


Amie July 29, 2013 at 9:53 am

Thanks Sheila! You are so kind. Have a great week!


Amie July 29, 2013 at 8:08 pm

Enjoy Sheila; so great to hear from you! Have a lovely week.


Lisa July 29, 2013 at 9:47 am

I’m not a huge fan of mango by itself but I do love it with peaches. That would be divine! I’d have to leave out the cilantro too (allergic) but this sounds delicious.


Amie July 29, 2013 at 8:08 pm

Thanks Lisa!


Kristen July 29, 2013 at 10:09 am

I love mango and love the idea of this smoothie!


Amie July 29, 2013 at 10:24 am

Thank you Kristen! Have a wonderful week!

Thanks Bev; enjoy!


Kabob July 29, 2013 at 7:11 pm

I recently read that Blue Diamond is a user friendly brand. I never buy it because it’s not organic. I may reconsider because you are using it AND having read that other article about earth friendly and unfriendly corporations.

Love you blog, read it all the time.


Amie July 29, 2013 at 8:08 pm

Thank you so much; you are so kind. Hope you enjoy it!


Jess July 29, 2013 at 10:21 pm


I love making smoothies with mangos, they make it very creamy and rich. However for smoothies I prefer to either buy the organic frozen mango or just cut them up and freeze them myself, I think that this results in a much creamy smoothie and it blends up nicer without ice in my opinion.


Lisa * July 30, 2013 at 8:08 am

I’ve never thought to add cilantro to smoothies! Love the idea. Will have to try it!


Kristin Troska July 30, 2013 at 8:10 am

YUM. Almond Mango Perfectness!


Karen July 30, 2013 at 8:11 am

This sounds amazing. One question…..is there something that can be substituted for the banana for those who either do not like banana or who cannot have that much potassium? :) thank you!!!!!


Kemmi Lee July 30, 2013 at 8:12 am

I bet other fresh herbs from the garden would be good, too. I have mint, basil and parseley… But cilantro is prob amazing!


Michele V July 30, 2013 at 8:14 am

Mango Magic….looks amazing!


Barbara July 30, 2013 at 8:16 am

The cilantro really threw me! Curious to try this!!


Christopher Sorel July 30, 2013 at 8:18 am

interesting combination in that and might have to try it.


Maria July 30, 2013 at 8:20 am

This recipe looks SOOOO Good!!! I love mango and coconut!!!!!! Always looking for new recipes to use them together. I have chia seeds could I use them in place of the hemp seeds and still get the same result?


Ann Marie July 30, 2013 at 8:26 am

Having recently discovered that the cause of my health troubles is food intolerance, I really appreciate your easy and delicious recipes. Thanks so much!


Nicole Trevisan July 30, 2013 at 8:29 am

I love BD’s unsweetened almond milk. thanks for this recipe!


iris a. July 30, 2013 at 8:33 am

Cilantro ? really would have never thought of that! how clever sounds and looks sooooo YUMMY! def will try it.


Jeri July 30, 2013 at 8:35 am

I live for my smoothies! Looking forward to trying this one. Thank you so much for sharing such tasty options. Still trying to figure out how to live my newly mandated lifestyle! :)


Jodi July 30, 2013 at 8:39 am

I love mango and cilantro but never thought of putting them together in a smoothie, can’t wait to try it.


Jamie July 30, 2013 at 8:48 am

Thanks for the yummy recipe Amie–sounds delicious!! I was wondering what a good substitute for the almond milk might be? I get sick if I have carrageenan and it seems to be in all the milk or dairy products with the rare exception. If I used yogurt, is there something I could thin it out with to have more of the same effect as the almond milk? This looks like another recipe I could share with my son as we try and expand his food repertoire because he loves mangoes–thankfully!! I just wanted to say thanks so much for turning us onto the Amazing Grass. My husband was recently diagnosed with cancer and the Amazing Grass has helped him feel a lot better and have a lot more strength–thank you for all your tips and recipes–its made a difference in our lives!


Carrie @ poet in the pantry July 30, 2013 at 8:51 am

What an inspired combination! Do you have any tricks to getting the mango out without mangling it? I’m horrible at that!


Mel July 30, 2013 at 8:55 am

Mmmm… Cinnamon and cilantro are truly delish together! Plus, how can you go wrong with Almond Breeze?!?

You know what I just realized…my grocer has a sale on mangoes…Woo-Hoo!


Jenny W. July 30, 2013 at 9:22 am

Sounds yummy! Think I could substitute chia seeds for the hemp seeds?


Susan July 30, 2013 at 9:25 am

Smoothie sounds yummy and I LIKE SEA SALTS!!!


Jessica July 30, 2013 at 9:28 am

I love almond milk! But, I’ve never used it in smoothies, I’ll have to give it a try!


Jessica H July 30, 2013 at 9:36 am

I love mango and smoothies! Can’t wait to try this and give the recipe to my dairy free sister :)


Tori L July 30, 2013 at 9:44 am

I loooove when its mango season! I need to give this a try!


Seth T July 30, 2013 at 9:44 am

Mango is a great addition to a smoothie, I think some parsley would be a good addition like the cilantro as well :)


Tami July 30, 2013 at 9:51 am

I wonder if adding in a small pinch of a salt would enhance it. Love different salts. Just don’t get a chance to get very many due to finances.


Laura Gay July 30, 2013 at 9:57 am

This sounds delish; a must try. Would like to try the different salts too.


arwa July 30, 2013 at 10:05 am

I am always on the lookout for new smoothie recipies.. I would love to win the salt set- in oder to make bath salts to help people relax


Carrie Ann July 30, 2013 at 10:08 am

A mango dream is a sweet dream indeed! Love your recipe ideas!


Jessica Dennis July 30, 2013 at 10:17 am

wow never thought of adding cilantro to my smoothie! I am going to try this with chia or flax seed instead of hemp, it’s all I have in my cupboard!


Noëlle Simkins July 30, 2013 at 10:26 am

This is the perfect summer smoothie! I adore coconut (it’s my new favorite addiction) and when is mango not delicious?! Having been lactose intolerant for over half my life, I can’t express how wonderful it is to find so many delicious recipes and substitutes, like almond milk, these days. Makes a girl very happy! Can’t wait to try this!


Allison (Spontaneous Tomato) July 30, 2013 at 10:29 am

This sounds great! I love mango lassis (and I drink almond milk every day— it’s my favorite of the milk-like drinks out there!), but I’ve never tried using hemp seeds. I actually thought I must be seeing ground up chia seeds in there instead of hemp seeds, cilantro, and cinnamon at first… you’re so creative! :)


Kathy P July 30, 2013 at 11:13 am

Love mango smoothies! Would not have thought to put cilantro in there though.


Corey K. July 30, 2013 at 11:33 am

This sounds amazing! Cilantro is so interesting. I’ve never thought about it. Can’t wait to try this! Love this website.


cheryl July 30, 2013 at 11:38 am

the mango intrigues me. I’ll have to try it!


Laura Miller July 30, 2013 at 2:09 pm

I’m not a huge fan of coconut, but I do absolutely LOVE mango. So maybe I will give it a try!


Donna Lobel July 30, 2013 at 3:14 pm

The spices/salts giveaway is awesome! Thanks Amie!

I love mango and almond milk smoothies . Will have to try this recipe because I love cilantro. I do have a question….was wondering about your thoughts on carrageenan. I have been hearing/reading no good things about it.


Marie July 30, 2013 at 6:05 pm

You know you have a winner when my 11 year old tastes it and says, “I definitely want this on my birthday!” :) ~ Marie


Sarah July 30, 2013 at 6:34 pm

I really enjoy blending spinach and rainbow chard (or another green leafed veggie along with spinach, and sometimes other fresh veggies and/or fresh chunk of ginger root) with unsweetened almond milk, be sure to really blending it well before adding my “base” fruit of choice or other fillers in my smoothie (sprouted rice protein powder, green powders [barely grass, etc], carob powder, pure vanilla extract, cinnamon, etc, even whole coffee beans at times…yummy). Frozen banana slices are by far my favorite “base fruit,” and frozen papaya chunks rock too! Blending the greens k veggies well before hand insure a smooth-delicious finishing result :) Green smithies are yummy indeed!!


Tami July 30, 2013 at 6:56 pm

I have never tried cilantro in a smoothie. Definitely must try!


Kevyn July 30, 2013 at 7:12 pm

Now I have another place to use the bolting cilantro in my garden. Thank you!


DamselflyDiary July 30, 2013 at 7:12 pm

I noticed all the commentary on cilantro and I thought I would comment too.

I add a cilantro tincture to my green drinks/smoothies. I tried growing cilantro and can’t and it is usually expensive to buy. The tincture is easy to add to a drink.

I use cilantro to help detox heavy metals from my body. And no, I don’t notice the flavor at all for those of you who think cilantro tastes like soap.


Kim Arnold July 30, 2013 at 7:21 pm

Oh gosh, this looks DIVINE!!!
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE cilantro and mango!
I’m making this TOMORROW!!!!


Kim Arnold July 30, 2013 at 7:22 pm

….uh oh….I rated it before I tried it! ;)


Julie M. July 30, 2013 at 8:24 pm

Sooo delicious! Love everything mango, and the cilantro adds an interesting kick!


Jay July 30, 2013 at 10:38 pm

Looks yummy. I just recently discovered the wonderful taste of almond milk.


Amie July 30, 2013 at 10:40 pm

Thanks so much; hope you enjoy it!


Gayle Honu August 1, 2013 at 10:10 am

Sounds wonderful!


Jessica August 1, 2013 at 10:12 am

I made this with flax seeds – so delicious!!!!

I would love to win the pitcher and two glasses from Bodum USA – this would be perfect for summer drinks!


Barbara Mayes August 1, 2013 at 10:14 am

Interesting! I would have never thought of combining cilantro and mango together, but it sounds very refreshing!


Rebecca August 1, 2013 at 10:17 am

Drinking my smoothie reading this makes me want to make this for my lunch. Maybe ill make it a smoothie day!!!! Thanks for the great recipe! Love coconut and mangos!


Stephanie MacDonald August 1, 2013 at 10:18 am

WOW this sounds amazing!!! I am going to try this!


Colleen Schriefer August 1, 2013 at 10:21 am

What a wonderful, healthy recipe! I imagine fresh picked peaches would work instead of mango, n’est pas?


Jessica H August 1, 2013 at 10:30 am

Tried and it was amazing! New fav treat! (Already commented before for previous giveaway but this is still the latest post)


Karen Makar August 1, 2013 at 10:35 am

Yum! A lot of my favorite flavors in there!!!


Stephanie G August 1, 2013 at 10:55 am

I just found your website and I love it. You have such creative recipes and I love that I can eat clean and healthy without feeling like I’m missing out. This recipe sounds great I never would have thought cilantro and cinnamon together would work. Cilantro is probably my favorite herb, so any excuse to use it more is great for me.


Elaine Alicia August 1, 2013 at 11:17 am

This sounds awesome. I have been using almond milk for years, being lactose intolerant my whole life, and now I’m soy intolerant and nixing the gluten. I love your website and all the information you have. Do you have a cookbook?


Amie August 1, 2013 at 11:19 am

Thanks Elaine! Enjoy; I’m working on a cookbook and hoping to have it out in the next year or so! Thank you again!!


Christin lusk August 1, 2013 at 11:45 am

I love mangoes! And I love almonds! What a brilliant idea. Just might have to go shopping for these items tomorrow. Thank you for sharing!!!!


Lori Williams August 1, 2013 at 11:47 am

I am the only one in my house that likes (loves) mangos!! More for me is all I can say!! This smoothie sounds so refreshing. I am going to have to get me some cilantro and hemp seeds. Where do you get hemp seeds? I live in a very rural area with no stores…except walmart….lol. Do you use them like flax seeds? What are the benefits? Thanks for all the great info and for all the great giveaways!! LOVE your site and have referred many people to it. Have a great day!!


Amie August 1, 2013 at 11:49 am

Lori, you can buy hemp seeds at Whole Foods Market or on the blue Vitacost button the right hand side of my page! Lots of protein and healthy omega 3′s! Thank you again; have a fabulous day.


Jill K. August 1, 2013 at 12:32 pm

I am a coconut fan and definitely want to give this one a try. I wouldn’t have thought to include cilantro in a smoothie like this. Thanks for the great recipe!


Terri August 1, 2013 at 2:43 pm

Sounds absolutely delicious!


Debbie August 1, 2013 at 4:02 pm

YUM! I’m making this tonight after the gym! love smoothies especially when it’s made with almond milk .


Donna Lobel August 1, 2013 at 4:37 pm

Another awesome giveaway from The Healthy Apple….love my tea……hot, cold, morning,noon, and night…..in fact all day everyday!


kim Daniels August 3, 2013 at 12:11 pm

This would be yummy with Blue Diamond’s Unsweetened Almond/Coconut milk. I have been making watermelon smoothies lately, but I want to try mangoes too! Yum! I love the insulator in your photos. My Dad is a big collector and he has given us quite a few. I have have them all over our house.


Nicole August 11, 2013 at 9:44 am

Want to try this!


Donna August 13, 2013 at 7:53 pm

Just made this smoothie absolutely delicious! I traded the cinnamon for baking spice which has cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice in it, and instead of hemp seed I did chia seed.


Amie August 13, 2013 at 8:00 pm

So glad to hear Donna!!!
