👩🍳 Expert tips
Make sure to read and follow these expert tips to ensure complete success with this orange mango smoothie recipe:
Plunger - if you're finding it hard to get everything moving in the blender, use the stick that comes with the blender to plunge it all in together towards the blades.
Layering - be sure to put the fresh ingredients in the jug first and then layer on the top with the frozen, this helps get the blender going before it hits the frozen items.
Liquids - this recipe is super versatile, so you could use water, milk, coconut milk, kefir, coconut water or a variation of the above. If you want to thin the smoothie down, add some more liquid.
Cleaning the blender - simply rinse the blender jug out, fill halfway with warm water and a tiny drop of dish soap and blend for 30-60 seconds. Rinse out and you can wash the lid separately if needed.

We'd recommend making the smoothie when you want to drink it for the best results. If you'd like to make it ahead, you can pop the banana, mango and oranges into a freezer bag and freeze until ready to blend. Then simply add the liquid and whizz until smooth. You may need a little extra liquid to get things going as the orange will be frozen in this case.
Alternatively, freeze any leftover smoothie into popsicle molds or ice cube trays.
