This super nutritious Sweet Potato Mango Smoothie is packed with Vitamin A and perfect for breakfast!

Okay, the sweet potato might sound a bit weird, but tastes great in a smoothie. Not only does it naturally sweeten the smoothie, but gives me a big shot of Vitamin A into my system. The mango is there to add a tropical touch to the smoothie because my mind is always on summer mode. You’ll be surprised how well the mango chunks compliment the sweet potato. For those of you who’ve been drinking green smoothies a lot lately, this is a great way to break up your routine.

Whether you need this smoothie to energize you in the morning or keep you going in the afternoon, this smoothie recipe is definitely something you want to keep in your back pocket!


  • Using the right blender: If you’re going to commit to drinking smoothies a few times a week, I highly recommend getting a high-speed blender. I used to make smoothies with a  cheap blender, and I never quite got the consistency that I wanted. Currently, I use a Vitamix, but the Nutri Ninja served me very well for a long time and it’s less expensive than the Vitamix)
  • Chia seeds: Great for adding omega-3 fatty acids into your meals.

    I really need to re-adopt sweet potato into my life. My mom scared me off of it when I was little (bad experience) but I know it can be such a tasty part of my food rotation! HA!

    This smoothie is really good, but I added a pinch of cinnamon and oh my god. I’m trying to get more vegetables and green smoothies do get tiring after awhile. so this recipe is perfect.

    Stumbled upon this recipe due to not having OJ or bananas for my usual sweet potato smoothie recipe. Googled ” do sweet potatoes & mangoes go together?” & found you. This recipe is perfect in its simplicity (my other recipe includes cinnamon & nutmeg so I did not add them to this one). Definitely adding this to my rotation. Agree that green smoothies can get tiring. My teen cannot stop tasting it, so that is another win! thanks so much!
