This exotic mango green curry smoothie is one of the most incredible smoothies I’ve tasted. “Curry Smoothie?” I hear you say. Be open to trying something different, because this blend is epic!
I get thousands of emails from readers saying that they feel cold and damp when they juice and blend in the winter. I always recommend adding warming foods like cinnamon, ginger, turmeric, chile peppers, and fennel to smoothies and juices. Add curry powder to the list, too.
This curry smoothie is comforting and warming, and at the same time refreshing and slightly sweet. I love sweet and spicy flavor combinations, so this smoothie hits all the right notes for me. But, tweak to your own taste preferences. You might want more dates, lime juice, chile flakes, or curry powder.
I also used dandelion greens in this blend because I love to include wild edibles, they’re so cleansing. A walk on the wild side is always good. But, you could use baby spinach or romaine.
Either way, this smoothie is right up there with my mango salsa smoothie. It’s really interesting, takes you on a flavorful journey, and creates a fire in your belly.
Be bold and give this one a try. I think you’re going to be blown away.

Coconut Curry Mango Green Smoothie
This vegan mango smoothie using curry powder is surprisingly delicious and a powerful anti-inflammatory aid.
- 1 cup (240ml) raw coconut water (or filtered water)
- 1 cup (240ml) full-fat canned coconut milk
- 1/2 cup (14g) dandelion greens
- 1/4 medium avocado, peeled and pitted
- 1/2 teaspoon finely grated lime zest
- 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
- 1/2 teaspoon yellow curry powder
- 1/8 teaspoon red pepper flakes
- Pinch of Celtic sea salt
- 2 cups (320g) frozen mango
- 1 tablespoon melted virgin coconut oil
- 1 tablespoon goji powder
- 1/2 teaspoon probiotic powder (see notes)
- 1/8 teaspoon ground turmeric
- Throw all of the ingredients into your blender (including any boosters) and blast on high for 30 to 60 seconds until smooth and creamy.
*Probiotic Powder - I add 1/2 teaspoon of probiotic powder to all smoothies to replenish stores of healthy bacteria for immunity, digestion, detox, and to balance the acidic effects of high-sugar fruits and other sweeteners. The really potent probiotics require refrigeration. If you have capsules, break the shell and release the powder. Unsweetened probiotic-rich liquids like kefirs (water, coconut water, milk varieties) or kombucha make wonderful health-promoting additions to shakes, too.
*Celtic Sea Salt - I add a pinch (or more) of this alkalizing, mineral-rich salt to all smoothies to boost the natural flavor of fruits and veggies; temper the acidity of sweet fruits and sweeteners; stimulate the lymphatic system; replenish electrolytes; aid digestion; and help the body access energy. I do not recommend adding common table salt which is generally heated to extreme temperatures, iodized, bleached, processed, and refined. This salt does not have the same benefits. If you have a health condition that requires you to limit your sodium intake consult your doctor before adding salt to your smoothies.
