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…
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’.
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?
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.
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.

I don’t normally drink almond milk but this sounds like a yummy and healthy summer treat to replace my milkshake addiction 😉 I want to try this one ASAP!
I love making smoothies with Almond Milk and mangoe are my favorite!!! Can’t wait to try this recipe!!! 🙂
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.
So glad to hear Donna!!!
Want to try this!
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.
Another awesome giveaway from The Healthy Apple….love my tea……hot, cold, morning,noon, and night…..in fact all day everyday!
YUM! I’m making this tonight after the gym! love smoothies especially when it’s made with almond milk .
Sounds absolutely delicious!
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!
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!!
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.
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!!!!
