This easy vegan mango smoothie bowl needs just 7 ingredients and 5 minutes to make. Add different toppings so you don’t get bored! A great and filling plant based breakfast idea.
This vegan mango smoothie bowl is the switch up that your breakfast routine needs.
Usually you will see people do strawberry or green smoothie bowls, but hear me out. Mangoes allow for their own sweetness, especially when perfectly ripe while also providing a delicious base for your smoothie bowl.
Now, if you have never had a smoothie bowl, you may be sitting here staring with a confused look on your face.
Why not just drink the smoothie? Am I right?
I know that’s the first thought I had before I ever had a smoothie bowl.
However, smoothie bowls are often thicker and allow for toppings to be added for an even more filling breakfast.
The consistency should be thicker than a smoothie, but not quite as thick as nice cream (unless you like yours that thick or thin of course).

What ingredients do you need to make a vegan mango smoothie bowl?
There are only 7 ingredients to make the bowl and then whatever toppings you want (we will give you ideas below).
Full amounts listed in printable recipe card below.
- frozen mango
- frozen banana
- chia seeds
- dairy free milk
- ground flaxseed
Do I have to use frozen fruit or can I use fresh?
When making a smoothie bowl, it’s supposed to be thick. One of the easiest ways to do that is to start with frozen fruit as it will always be thicker and not as juicy as a fresh fruit.
However, if you do use fresh fruit, make sure that it is ripe and that you reduce the liquid from the milk.
What toppings should I use for smoothie bowls?
This is a pretty loaded question because there are so many ideas out there and you could literally mix and match so many different things!
One quick rule of thumb is to put some fresh fruit on top along with something with a crunch like nuts or seeds.
Other ideas are:
- chia seeds
- nut butters
- coconut shreds
- shaved chocolate or chocolate chips (vegan of course)
- agave drizzle
For the vegan mango smoothie bowl pictured, we used fresh banana, cinnamon, chia seeds, walnuts, and pepita seeds.
How do you make a vegan mango smoothie bowl?
Again, one of those recipes that isn’t really a recipe.
You literally put all the ingredients into a bowl and blend until smooth.
Then, pour into a bowl and add all your favorite toppings.
Can I prep this vegan mango smoothie bowl ahead of time?
Instead of making the whole thing ahead of time, what we would actually recommend is that you put all the ingredients into a freezer safe bag or container and then freeze until ready to make.
This would still reduce the prep time while not having to worry about it getting too thick.
Is this smoothie bowl top 8 allergen free?
This vegan mango smoothie bowl does contain cashews; however, they are just to add some protein into the bowl and not at all a requirement.
If you remove those, the bowl is Top 8 Allergen Free.
