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

I’m not really sure why.

Or where these dreams are coming from.

Or what dreaming about mangoes 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.

  1. 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 πŸ˜‰

  2. 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.

    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.

  4. Hi,

    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.

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

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

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

  8. 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?

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

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

  11. 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! πŸ™‚

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

    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!

    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!

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

  16. I love mango and smoothies! Can’t wait to try this and give the recipe to my dairy free sister πŸ™‚

  17. Mango is a great addition to a smoothie, I think some parsley would be a good addition like the cilantro as well πŸ™‚

  18. 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.

  19. 5 stars
    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

  20. 5 stars
    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!

  21. 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!

  22. 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! πŸ™‚

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

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

  25. 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.

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

  27. 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 πŸ™‚ Green smithies are yummy indeed!!

  28. 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.

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

  30. 5 stars
    Sooo delicious! Love everything mango, and the cilantro adds an interesting kick!

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

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

  33. 5 stars
    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!

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

  35. 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.

  36. 5 stars
    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?

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

  37. 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!!!!

  38. 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!!

    1. 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.

  39. 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!

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

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

  42. 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.

  43. 5 stars
    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.

  44. I love making smoothies with Almond Milk and mangoe are my favorite!!! Can’t wait to try this recipe!!! πŸ™‚

  45. I don’t normally drink almond milk but this sounds like a yummy and healthy summer treat to replace my milkshake addiction πŸ˜‰ I want to try this one ASAP!
