Every so often, a flavor combination comes along that makes you tilt your head and squint your eyes, as you wonder, “Would that really be good?” This smoothie is like that, but it catches you off guard and is so delicious.

A few great things about this smoothie – it’s dairy free, grain and gluten free (doesn’t use oat milk), vegan, and easily made nut free, paleo or whole 30 depending on the liquid and sweetener you use. If you’re on any medications, double check to make sure they don’t react with grapefruit juice before drinking this smoothie. Otherwise, I think you’ll really love it.

Mango, Avocado & Grapefruit Smoothie

Creamy, delicious, vegan. A great smoothie with a deliciously unique flavor.
Servings: 3


  • 2 cups frozen mango
  • 1 cup frozen banana
  • 1 large avocado peeled, pitted
  • 3-4 fresh mint leaves
  • 20-ish drops liquid vanilla stevia sweetener
  • 2 tbsp agave nectar
  • 1 cup grapefruit juice unsweetened
  • 1-2 cups coconut water depending on desired consistency


  • Add all ingredients to the blender and blend until smooth. If the bitterness of grapefruit isn't your thing, you can add more sweetener or swap for fresh orange juice and reduce or leave out the sweetener.

    This is truly inspired. Avocado and mango is the power couple I never knew I needed. Thanks, Chris! ????

  3. Looks go delicious! Always looking for new smoothie ideas-thanks!

  4. Orsdia says:

    I love this Smoothie. Its look sweet and I will try to prepare it when I get all the ingredients! Thank you for sharing!

  5. Sarah says:

    I got so excited to finally find a good smoothie recipe without banana… then looked through the recipe and… womp womp ???????? Chris tricked me.

    • Chris says:

      Take out the banana! Just add some extra mango – the banana mainly helps with texture but all mango will be just great.

  6. Mari says:

    Looks yummy! What blender do you use?

    • Chris says:

      It’s a Vitamix – exact one isn’t available but the replacement can be found on Amazon.

        Just made this morning and it was really delicious! I substituted honey for Agave and left out the Stevia. Also left out the mint as I don’t care for it. Would absolutely recommend and will be making again! Thanks Chris!

  7. Melissa says:

    Yum! I’m super curious to try this. I have everything but the grapefruit at home. Guess I’m going to the store. Happy Sunday! So cute to see Polly helping. ????

  8. Krystal says:

    Do you have any recommendations for replacing the grapefruit juice? Grapefruit juice can have negative effects with certain medications.

  9. Karen says:

    That looks really yummy. I want to try it, but I’ve developed a banana allergy, mango would have been my substitute. Do you think I could increase the mango by a cup, or do you suggest another substitute? It’s surprising how often I have to adapt or forgo recipes.

  10. Kathy says:

    Sorry…just saw the orange juice comment. My bad…

  11. Kathy says:

    I’m one of those that cannot do grapefruit and I’m guessing because of the unique flavor profile, there is no good substitute???
