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.

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

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

  3. 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! 🙂

  4. 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!

    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!

    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

  7. 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.

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

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

    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!

    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!
