What other Fruit Goes Well with Mango?
Although I love the combination of fruits included in this mango smoothie bowl recipe, there are so many other fruits that taste delicious with mango! Try adding in some of the fruits below.
- Pineapple: Cut and slice the outside of the pineapple and chop it into smaller chunks.
- Coconut: Either shredded coconut or use a real coconut from the tropics!
- Strawberries: Wash the strawberries and cut the top of the green leaves off for a strawberry mango smoothie bowl recipe.
- Kiwi: Peel the brown skin off of the kiwi and slice it into sections.
- Oranges: Find ripe oranges and either cut or peel the outside layer of the orange.
- Peaches: Fresh or frozen peaches are delicious to throw into the blender. You can leave the peel on or remove it using a knife.
- Blueberries: This blends well with mangos and gives the smoothie bowl a whole new color of blueish purple. Clean and wash the blueberries and add them right to the blender.
When it comes to this tropical mango smoothie bowl, the topping options are endless! My favorites are chia seeds and nuts, but you could easily add some berries or a little granola. Really anything will do the job!
- Chia seeds
- Nuts of choice
- Mango chunks
- Coconut flakes or shredded coconut
- Almond butter
- Hemp hearts
Yes! Smoothie bowls are rich in fiber, nutrients, and natural sugars that help with digestion and improve health all around. Depending on the ingredients that you are adding each one can have a boost in immunity and maintains a healthy heart and body.
Mangos are rich in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. They have many health benefits that help with eye health and improve digestive health.
There are several variations of liquids to add to a smoothie bowl. Water, milk, soy milk, coconut milk, almond milk, fruit juices, and even Greek yogurt. Each of these has its own taste, textures, and consistency in the smoothie bowl.
If you are looking to thicken a smoothie bowl do not add ice. Instead use frozen fruit, oats, chia seeds, yogurt, protein powder, nuts, or nut butter. These will all thicken your smoothies.
Yes! A smoothie bowl doesn’t have to be thick like ice cream but does need to have a thick textured consistency that is not soup-like. Smoothie bowls are consumed with a spoon making them easy to top and a full filling when eating it.

Maple syrup should work too! It’s just added for a little more sweetness.
the coconut milk overpowered the bowl, it tasted weird for me, would i be able to use yoghurt instead of cococnut milk?
Yes, you could use greek yogurt. Just add some milk if you need to thin it out.
