Mango and Peanut Butter Smoothie

I love, love, love this smoothie. Bananas, mango and peanut butter is a divine combination. Don't be scared to use a little peanut butter because used in moderation, it is very good for you (especially your heart). Just make sure you use organic peanut butter without added sugar or salt. I prefer to use smooth peanut butter but you can use the crunchy version if you prefer. This is my husband's favourite smoothie.

Mango and Peanut Butter Smoothie

Serves 2 people


  • 400-500 millilitres (13½-17 fluid oz) soy milk
  • 2 large, very ripe bananas
  • 1 large, very ripe mango
  • 2 teaspoons smooth peanut butter (without added sugar)
  • A couple of ice cubes


  1. Turn the mango up on the skinny side. The stone is a flat oval, so you will find your mangoes are narrower one way than the other in alignment with the stone. Cut off the "cheeks" of the mango, each side, as close to the stone as possible. If you hit the stone, just swerve around it a little. Now take a cheek and peel the skin off with a small knife. Repeat with the other cheek. Next peel the skin off the centre piece with the stone. Peel it all the way around and leave no skin on the edge. Carve off any extra fruit off the stone with a small knife. Chop the mango coarsely.
  2. Place the ice cubes in a blender or food processor.
  3. Pour 50 millilitres (1½ fluid oz) of the soy milk on top of the ice cubes.
  4. Blend for 5 seconds.
  5. Peel the 2 bananas and add to the blender along with the 2 teaspoons peanut butter and the remaining 400 (13½  fluid oz) or 450 millilitres soy milk (depending on how thick you want the smoothie)
  6. Blend for 30 seconds or until smooth.
  7. Serve immediately.


  • You can use soy yoghurt (or regular yoghurt) instead of the soy milk for a thicker smoothie.
  • You can use almond milk, oat milk, rice milk or semi-skimmed milk instead of the soy milk.
  • You can add a pinch of ground cinnamon or nutmeg for a spicy taste.
  • For a chocolate twist, add 1 tablespoon cocoa powder.

I love this recipe! I made this smoothie for myself before I saw this website and then I googled 'mango, banana, peanut butter' and your site came up. I was trying to see the nutritional facts for this smoothie. I just bought organic peanut butter, I've been using reduced fat and I felt guilty. However, I use frozen mangoes and I'm not sure if it makes a difference.

I love your website, I am going through a few recipes and plan to try the black beans and corn soup recipe today! Thanks!!!!

Thanks Stacey :)

Frozen mangoes should work fine...the smoothie will be more like a milk shake than a smoothie but it will work absolutely fine :) Good luck!
