About Mango Oat Smoothie
Packed with sumptuous flavors, creamy, smooth, and rich texture, this Mango Oats Breakfast Smoothie has everything you need to start your day! This is my favorite breakfast on the go for rushy mornings. The great thing I love about oat-based smoothies is that they keep you full for the next 4-5 hours.
The key to making this mango smoothie delectable is using the ripe and sweet mangoes. The sweetness from the mango would be enough to sweeten up the smoothie. I want my smoothies extra sweet, so I add some honey or dates for an added sugar kick.
Not only for breakfast, this mango oat smoothie can also be served as brunch or sometimes as an afternoon meal when you want to drink your lunch!
Smoothies, chia pudding, fruit salad, fruit custard, and sago pudding are often my lunch during the summer months. It is because I always want something sweet and chilled, and generally don’t feel super hungry during hot days. The wonderful thing about having a smoothie for a meal is that the nutritious smoothies keep us cool and at the same time provide essential nutrients and energy to keep our day going.
For an extra thick, cold, and creamy smoothie, feel free to add ice cubes while blending this smoothie. I prepared this mango oat smoothie recipe using fresh mangoes, but frozen mangoes would also work fine here. Also, you can make this smoothie with both rolled or quick oats.
This mango oat smoothie might be one of my favorite smoothies, because I just love everything about mangoes. You can eat them as they are, or use them to make delicious mango dishes such as Mango Sago, Eggless Mango Mousse, No Bake Mango Cheesecake, Mango Peda, Mango Pudding, Mango Iced Tea, etc.
Just make this easy smoothie once — this is going to be your new favorite breakfast!

Ingredients for Mango Oats Smoothie
Mangoes — Any variety of sweet, ripe, and juicy mangoes can be used to make this mango oats smoothie recipe. You can also use frozen mangoes if you don’t have fresh ones at hand.
Oats — You can use either quick or instant oats which are also known as porridge oats. Or you can use the old-fashioned oats. If you are using old-fashioned oats, then soak them in 1 cup of warm milk or warm water for about 30 minutes before adding them to the smoothie. Soaking makes the rolled oats softer and they are easier to blend.
Milk — You can use any type of your favorite milk here. Dairy and non-dairy both work here.
Sweetener — Adding any type of sweetener is entirely optional. I have added about 1 tablespoon of honey to this mango smoothie because I like my smoothie extra sweet. If you are making a vegan smoothie, then you can also replace honey with dates, maple syrup, or any other sweetener of your choice.
Seeds — For some added fiber, protein, omega-3 fatty acids, calcium, and other nutrients you can either add ground flaxseeds or chia seeds.
Flavor — I have added some ground cardamom to this smoothie, but adding any flavoring is optional. If you don’t like cardamom, then you can also add a splash of vanilla extract.

Mango – When fresh mangoes are not in season, you can also use frozen mango chunks or puree. Since you are adding them to a smoothie, you can directly add them without thawing. Also, make sure to use the juicy, ripe, and sweet mango for this smoothie recipe.
Ice cubes – To make this smoothie cold and dense, you can add 5-6 ice cubes. Or you can also use a combination of fresh or frozen mangoes.
Toppings – I have topped these smoothies with chia seeds, oats, and mangoes. But you can also serve it without any toppings. Other toppings that you can add are toasted coconut flakes, almonds, or cashews.
Smoothie bowl – If you want a super thick mango smoothie or a smoothie bowl, then add ½ cup of ice cubes. Also, add toasted nuts and seeds to the smoothie if you are making a mango oats smoothie bowl.

This smoothie recipe can easily be doubled or tripled.
Color – The color, and flavor of mango in this smoothie will vary with the type of mangoes you are using.
When storing this smoothie in the refrigerator, then remember that the oats will soak in the milk resulting in a thicker smoothie. So, if your smoothie is too thick after storing, then add some milk and pulse the smoothie to make it drinkable.

Can I use mango pulp for making Mango Oats Smoothie?
Yes, you can undoubtedly use freshly prepared or store-bought mango puree in this smoothie recipe.
Can I add rolled oats without soaking?
Yes, you can do that. I recommend soaking rolled oats for 30 minutes because it becomes softer and easier to digest after absorbing the liquid. But using them without soaking is simply fine as well.
Fresh or frozen mango, which one is best?
Fresh and frozen both types of mangoes can be added to this mango oats smoothie. Adding fresh mangoes gives it more refreshing flavors, that’s why I like to use fresh ones whenever I have them on hand. Using frozen mangoes is the best alternative for the months when fresh mangoes are not available.

For making Mango Oats Smoothie
- Cut the sides of the mango 1/4 inches away from the middle. Make the same cut on the other side. After that, cut the long slits lengthwise on the mango slice. Then turn the mango 90 degrees and cut similar sized lines to form a grid line pattern without going through the mango skin. Using a large spoon, scoop out the mango cubes into the jar or a blender.
- Add instant oats to the blender. If using rolled oats, then soak oats in 1 cup of warm milk or water for 30 minutes to 1 hour. You can also soak them overnight in the refrigerator. Now add milk, honey/pitted dates, and cardamom powder.
- Blitz everything until smooth and creamy. Check the consistency, if your smoothie is too thick, then add some extra milk and blend again to make it runnier.
- Divide the mango oat smoothie among serving glasses. Top with chia seeds, oats flakes, and chopped mangoes. Mango Oats Breakfast Smoothie is ready, enjoy it chilled.
