Yes! Especially if you are eating this in place of a highly processed and high sugar dessert. My mango yogurt smoothie bowl is super sweet and satisfying and is an excellent treat. Replace your refined sugar ice cream or dessert with a frozen fruit mango sorbet smoothie bowl!
I love making smoothie bowls as dessert because they are so sweet and remind me of ice cream, but with a ton of extra nutrients.

TIPS & TRICKS TO MAKE AN ULTRA THICK MANGO SMOOTHIE BOWL WITH NO BANANA
I've used many blenders and I can always get thick smoothie bowls using these methods below:
- Use only and only frozen fruit (and vegetables if using)!! I get asked all the time if you can use non frozen fruit in smoothie bowls. And the answer is no! You will not get a thick creamy texture without frozen fruit.
- Use minimal (if any) liquid. If you're going to use milk, use only about ⅛ cup per cup of frozen fruit. The more liquid you add, the more of a soupy watery smoothie bowl you will get.
- Keep blending until your bowl is totally smooth. This means either using your tamper to push the fruit down, or turning off your blender a couple times and scraping the frozen fruit down towards the blades.
- Turn up the speed! Turning up the speed once it starts pureeing allows some air to get into your smoothie bowl, meaning a light fluffy and creamy smoothie bowl texture! Yum!
And that's it! It just takes frozen fruit and blending!

How to make this smoothie bowl for a healthy balanced breakfast:
If you're eating a smoothie bowl for breakfast, fruit itself is not a complete meal. You'll need some healthy fats and some more protein.
For protein add: yogurt, some nut butter, nuts or seeds, collagen powder, or protein powder.
For healthy fats add: nuts, seeds, nut butters, coconut flakes, coconut chips, or whole milk yogurt.
These can be blended inside the smoothie bowl or added on top. I love adding toppings for a great texture!

Frequently asked questions about my mango smoothie bowl with no banana.
Are no banana mango smoothie bowls healthy?
Yes! Smoothie bowls are an excellent way to pack in high fiber and high nutrient fruits (and even veggies)! Stay away from milks, yogurts, and protein powders with added sugars because that's where you can turn a healthy treat to a high sugar treat.
Is mango smoothie without banana good for health?
Yes! Mango is ultra rich in beta carotene, a powerful antioxidant that fights disease and inflammation all over your body. Mangoes are also, surprisingly high in fiber, about 20% of the amount you typically need for an entire day!
How do I make a smoothie bowl with oats?
Add ¼ cup old fashioned oats into the blender along with your smoothie ingredients and blend just like you would without the oats. Oats add even more fiber, which helps support gut health, hormone balance, and weight loss!
What's the difference between a smoothie and a smoothie bowl?
Smoothies are thin and drinkable through a straw, smoothie bowls are very thick and eaten out of a bowl with a spoon.
