With our Cabo getaway just one week away, I’ve been trying very hard to cut down on the heavy snacks and indulging in super easy smoothies. I’ve made at least 10 different smoothie variations in the last 2 weeks but this raspberry mango smoothie has to be my absolute favorite. Plus, it’s so fun to look at!

And the best part about this smoothie is that you only need 4 ingredients – raspberries, mango, milk and orange juice. That’s it!

Now the raspberry portion doesn’t have a sweetener, but once you swirl in that sweet mango goodness, the balance of sweetness is absolute perfection. It’s not overly sweet but just enough to get your morning going.

And if you’re not into smoothies for breakfast, these go perfectly as a post-workout drink or midnight snack. Midnight smoothies sound a bit unconventional but at least you’re cutting down on those midnight brownies and cookies. Or is that just me?

    I kid you not, I have something in the oven right now!!! with peaches + raspberries. And I know we talked last week about the sunrise cocktails. I switched that to another one. But I had more peaches to use, so am baking with them…right now! But I could just have made this! Looks sooo good!

    I love smoothies! Since I bought my awesome blender for the family for Christmas, I have a daily smoothie for breakfast — and have lost a good 15 pounds as well! That said – I love this recipe you have posted! I like that it is simple and healthy. Yeah, I might slip in a little bit of greens which might not make it as pretty.. but that’s the beauty of these blended concoctions – so healthy and versatile! Can’t wait to get my hands on some fresh mango and berries!

    Beautiful, sounds easy, AND the fact that you don’t use yogurt….YEAAAAA. I love yogurt and I love smoothies but not mixed together. For some reason the mixture is YUCK, to me. This smoothie is perfection in my opinion.

      Hi, I made the mango smoothie and it was delicious , however I poured the o.j on top of the drink , so It would at least look like the drink that was made by damn delicious .com and it did. I used almond milk , the change was good for my tummy

    What a beautiful representation of this smoothie, it looks delicious.. in fact, I may have to go and make one! Thanks for the great idea on flavour combinations!

    Would coconut or almond milk work instead of dairy milk? Pretty sure they would but just thought i would ask.

      I actually haven’t tried using either types of milk but I don’t see why it wouldn’t work!

    Hello! your blog is so interesting and cute :). I have a question, since I am from Venezuela, it is so difficult for me to get the raspberries (mango isn’t a problem obviously, haha). In this case,maybe I could use blackberries or strawberries? Would it be good?
