This strawberry mango smoothie bowl is thick, sweet, and creamy. It's the perfect fruity base for delicious toppings! This makes a breakfast to look forward to or a satisfying and healthy snack.
My heart belongs to mango. I'm mad for it lately. I want it in everything. I throw it in my smoothies (and on top!). I love it in salsa, and on tacos! Don't even get me started on dessert. It has this wonderfully sweet flavor and as if I couldn't love it any more it's also a bright, sunny yellow.

Frozen mango chunks can always be found in my freezer. They're a staple because I love to make smoothies that are:
And since mango hits all these marks it only made sense to throw them into a strawberry mango smoothie bowl.
What's a Smoothie Bowl?
It's essentially a really thick smoothie but instead of a glass you scoop it into a bowl and top it with all things delicious and/or crunchy then eat it with a spoon because why the heck not??? The thick smoothie is delicious on it's own but the toppings are half the fun of it.
What's in this smoothie bowl?
- Banana - Banana really does twofold here. It naturally sweetens the smoothie bowl but more than that it gives it that really thick and creamy texture.
- Frozen mango - Mango gives the smoothie bowl a tropical citrusy flavor and thickens it up as well. We don't want to add ice to a smoothie bowl. Frozen fruit does all the thickening for us.
- Frozen strawberries - Strawberries and mangoes complement each other so well!
- Navel oranges - Most people use orange juice from the carton but I find fresh squeezed O/J is SO much better. I just cut it in half and squeeze it right into the blender but for this recipe I went ahead and measured it.
- Ice cold water - Ice cold water (as opposed to lukewarm) helps the smoothie stay nice and thick.
- Greek yogurt - Not only does it add protein but it also keeps the smoothie creamy. I like to keep my smoothies as healthy as possible so I use unsweetened Greek yogurt. The smoothie is sweet from all the fruit and doesn't need the additional sugar.
Now for the fun part. As you can see from the picture above I topped this one with sliced strawberries, diced mango, gluten free granola, and cocoa nibs. It was bomb delish! The opportunities here are endless. You can use:
- Nuts - Sliced almonds, chopped pecans, walnut pieces, shelled pistachios, hazelnuts, macadamia nuts, or peanuts
- Granola - Just make sure it's labeled gluten free if you have Celiac or gluten intolerance
- Cocoa nibs
- Chopped dark chocolate
- Fresh fruit - Blueberries, sliced strawberries, diced mango, sliced bananas, diced peaches, blackberries, raspberries, diced pineapple,
- Nut butters
- Coconut chips or coconut flakes
- Seeds - Pumpkin, chia, flax or hemp
- Chopped dates
How to Make It
It's made just like a smoothie except the ratio is different and I like to blend it a bit longer. The liquid to fruit ratio is typically less than a regular smoothie to make it nice and thick.
Add everything to the blender and blend until thick and creamy. Pour the mixture into a shallow bowl with a decent amount of surface area for all your delicious toppings.
