A cheaper and healthier version of the Mangofest Smoothie from Smoothie King made at home!
My absolute favorite smoothie from Smoothie King is the Mangofest Smoothie. I have been getting it for years and constantly crave it when my sweet tooth is harassing me. I finally got fed up with paying an outrageous amount for a smoothie and after a lot of trial and error, I have found the ingredients to make it at home and taste the EXACT SAME. I even added in some extra ingredients to make it healthier than before for a fraction of the cost!
Typically, a Mangofest Smoothie is yellow/orange in color, but I added a heaping handful of spinach which makes this new version green in color. I love adding spinach to smoothies because it has no taste and adds a ton of nutritional benefits. I like adding chia seeds too!
Additionally, I like to add collagen powder to my smoothies which also has no added taste. I use Bioglan Inner Beauty Powder and Bioglan Marie Collagen Powder. I used to order this brand from Australia, but it has recently become available on Amazon! Hello 2-day Prime shipping!
The Inner Beauty Powder is blue form the spirulina and also adds a blue tint to the smoothie.
The Mangofest Smoothie is easily customizable, as you can see by the spinach and collagen modifications that I made, but the base of this smoothie is really simple and packed with flavor and health benefits!
I do want to point out that to achieve the exact taste of the Smoothie Kind version of Mangofest, you need the right juice blend. I have found that Knudsen Simply Nutritious Morning Blend Fruit Juice is the best juice for the job. The Smoothie King version is a pineapple, apple, papaya blend and those flavors shine through in the Knudsen Simply Nutritious Morning Blend. The only place I have been able to find this exact flavor in stores is Whole Foods, but Amazon carries it as well.
All you need is frozen mango, fresh spinach, ice cubes and the pineapple, apple, papaya juice blend and you have yourself an exact Mangofest copycat!
I use my Nutribullet to blend all of the ingredients.
- 6 oz. mango chunks, frozen
- 1 1/3 cup baby spinach, fresh
- 3-5 ice cubes
- 1 cup Knudsen Simply Nutritious Morning Blend
- Collagen Powder (optional)
- Add all ingredients into a 32 oz blender, then blend until all ingredients are combined.
- Serve & Enjoy!
