Mango Raspberry Breakfast Smoothies

When it comes to cold and refreshing drinks, there are few more appealing than mango raspberry breakfast smoothies. 

Mango Raspberry Breakfast Smoothies

When I was a teenager and worked in the mall, I used to get a smoothie nearly every day. This was before they were even super trendy so let’s consider me ahead of the game here. I doubt these smoothies had many health properties, I don’t even know if they really had actual fruit in them. But they were sweet and creamy and cold. I was loyal to a fault when it came to this little stand peddling fruit concoctions.

I forgot about smoothies for a long time and even now only occasionally make one. As healthy and fruit-filled as a real smoothie can be, it’s still a lot of calories spent on a drink that doesn’t necessarily fill me up. I cannot and will not replace any meal with a smoothie, even breakfast. It’s not substantial enough. However, on a hot day, a cold and refreshing smoothie still hits the spot. I love the tropical fruit smoothie from a few years ago and will always say yes to an orange creamsicle style one. 

The mango raspberry breakfast smoothie is my new favorite. I say breakfast because it can definitely provide a good pick-me-up on those rough, too-early-for-anything mornings. It shouldn’t replace your meal – or your coffee – but should compliment it. It’s got the sweetness of the mango and the slightly tart flavor from the raspberries. Layer it in a glass to make it look extra pretty and you’ve got a great breakfast side!

  1. Yes sista, you are ahead of the game! I used to work in the mall in high school in a little clothing store called Hit or Miss in SC. (It was mostly a hit!) I also bought fruit smoothies at the mall. But unlike you, I often replaced a meal with them. And still do. I like that you don’t and use them as a special or addition instead. (Taking notes here!) This is a beautiful smoothie and I will definitely try this Kim. I love that you used coconut milk.

  2. This summer – (like your younger self) I’ve been having a smoothie EVERYDAY and have been running out of options! This mango raspberry smoothie would be a nice addition to my rotation – it looks gorgeous and sounds absolutely delicious!

    • I use the kind in the box near the almond milk, the thin kind. I’m really loyal to milk but I can’t help myself with the coconut milk!
