This easy vegan mango smoothie bowl is so refreshing and a great breakfast option that your body will thank you for! With a variety of healthy and delicious toppings to choose from, you will have a tropical, nutrient packed bowl that will kick start your day the right way and be ready in just 5 minutes!
Whether it is summer or winter, I love to make smoothie bowls for breakfast (as you can tell from my other smoothie bowl recipes). What makes them great are the fact that are light on the body, but still satiating enough that you aren’t starving afterwards. Doesn’t matter whether it is pre or post workout – I feel like I can fly out the door with a natural burst of energy after eating this mango smoothie bowl.
I will tend to choose the mango smoothie bowl when I feel like having a vacation without having to leave my kitchen – which happens often here in London during the winter. The mangoes bring such a rich tropical taste that it is the easiest form of escapism that I can find!
Are Smoothie Bowls healthy?
As with any recipe, it depends what you put into it. For my smoothie bowl recipes, I always make sure to put in healthy whole foods such as a variety of fruits, nuts and seeds which are packed with essential vitamins and minerals which your body needs – and this vegan mango smoothie bowl is no different. You can check it out for yourself in the nutritional breakdown below!
Whether you strictly stick to this recipe, or choose to change the toppings to provide different flavours and macronutrient profile, you will be sure to have a healthy combination of nutrients and immune-boosting antioxidants that you need to thrive for the day.
How do I thicken my Smoothie Bowl?
There are 4 ways I like to thicken my smoothie bowl, depending on whether I wish to have a low calorie smoothie bowl or not.
- If your smoothie bowl is not as thick as you like after mixing, then pop it in the freezer for about 15-20 minutes. You should find that it is much thicker afterwards.
- The frozen bananas are the backbone of this smoothie bowl and provide the thick texture. So if you wish to make it thicker, add more frozen bananas!
- Another option is to add rolled oats. Not only will this help in thickening the smoothie bowl, but will also provide it with a nice flavour too!
- Last option will be to reduce the amount of oat milk. In this way, you will have less quantity but thicker quality.
I tend to have a mix of fresh fruit and granola to give the smoothie bowl a nice crunch with every bite. Given it is a mango bowl, it is always appropriate to add desiccated coconut to give it even more of a tropical flavour.
The beauty of this mango smoothie bowl is that a large variety of toppings taste great with it. Here are some other toppings I like to add from time to time:
- Different berries: such as raspberries, strawberries or blackberries
- Mango chunks
- Kiwi fruit
- Any type of nut butter
- Hemp hearts
- Chia seeds
