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.

    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?

  2. 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.

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

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

    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!

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

  8. 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.

  9. 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 ๐Ÿ™‚ Green smithies are yummy indeed!!

    You know you have a winner when my 11 year old tastes it and says, “I definitely want this on my birthday!” ๐Ÿ™‚ ~ Marie

  11. 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.
