This mango protein smoothie has become my go-to dessert for the past two weeks. It’s an ideal combination of refreshing fruit and a whopping 20 grams of protein in a single cup. The best part?

Who knows, it might become your nightly dessert obsession too!

Nightly Ritual

Tokyo summers are no joke. It gets hot! I mean, really hot! And even though I’m not typically a smoothie or even ice cream enthusiast (except for Ben and Jerry’s, of course), I’ve found myself craving this beautiful concoction every single night. It has become our little ritual, snuggled up on the couch, binge-watching Netflix, and relishing the creamy goodness of this mango “ice cream.” Yes, you heard it right – this smoothie has magically transformed into an ice cream-like treat with a secret recipe. It’s a definite win-win situation in my book!

How to Make this Mango Protein Smoothie:

To whip up this delicious Mango Protein Smoothie, a high-speed blender is essential. Personally, I swear by my trusty Vitamix, which I’ve had for over a decade and still works like a charm. It’s truly one of the best kitchen appliances I’ve ever invested in. This recipe yields 2 servings, making it perfect for our nightly smoothie ritual, enjoyed by both me and my husband.

Now, let’s gather the ingredients:

  • 420 grams of frozen mangoes (equivalent to 3 cups)
  • 1.5 scoops of your preferred vanilla-flavored protein powder
  • 120 ml (or 1/2 cup) of unsweetened almond milk

Simply add all the ingredients to the blender, in my case, the Vitamix, and with the help of the tamper, gently pushing down the frozen mangoes, within a minute you’ll have a Mango Protein Smoothie with the consistency of creamy ice cream.

A Refreshing Trick

A trick I use to make the ultimate Mango Protein Smoothie is to prepare it 20 minutes in advance and place it in the freezer. This little trick creates a perfect combination of a firm, icy shell on top and a velvety smooth and creamy texture underneath.

I always feel that buying mangoes can be a gamble. They can either be a great surprise or a disappointing letdown. That’s why when I can create recipe that calls for frozen mangoes, like this smoothie/ice cream, I’m all for it! Having been born in Brazil and living there until the age of 11, I have nice memories of indulging in the sweetest and juiciest mangoes. Fruits were incredibly affordable back then, so we enjoyed plenty of mangoes. It’s amazing how certain foods can transport us back to our childhood, bringing feelings of carefree days and summertime.
