Mangos are particularly great for making into juice because they are a rich source of soluble fiber. This means that they have a natural thickness to them. Mango juice is almost like drinking a smoothie.

Why You Need This Recipe

  • One ingredient! That’s it. Make some mango puree and add water and you have a refreshing glass of juice. You don’t even need any added sugar or added sweeteners for this Mango Juice recipe.
  • Mangoes offer lots of vitamins and homemade juice is the perfect way to consume fresh fruit on hot summer days. Some people call them the “king of fruits.”
  • Making this homemade mango juice is also a great way to preserve fresh mangos during mango season. You can easily freeze the juice into mango ice cubes and add them to smoothies through the year.

Key Ingredients

A whole mango and measuring cup of water on a blue surface.

Mangoes contain magnesium and potassium. They bring a great tropical experience to a glass. You can use any type of ripe mango to make juice including Alphonso mangoes.

Their bright color indicates that they are rich in beta carotene which is great for the immune system.

You’ll also need some water to help blend the fruit and to dilute it a bit. I recommend using filtered water if your tap water has any chlorine flavor to it. Filtered water will remove any chlorine taste.

Recipe FAQs

Can I use a juicer to make mango juice?

A juicer is not ideal because mangos are a very soft fruit. If you want to use a juicer, you’ll need to juice the mango with other ingredients that are hard in texture, such as carrots or apple. This will help push the mango slices through the juicer. That said, a blender or food processor is much preferred for making mango juice. 

Is this recipe the same as mango puree?

It is very similar! True mango puree does not have any of the fiber strained out. If you want mango puree, then just don’t strain the mixture once you blend it to retain more of the fiber.

Can I freeze mango juice?

Yes! Making mango juice and freezing it in an ice cube tray is an ideal way to freeze fresh mangoes. The frozen mango cubes will keep in the freezer in an airtight bag up to several months. Use them to make a mango smoothie.

Can I use unripe mangos to make into juice?

No, it’s best to use ripe fruit to make sure it has enough natural flavor and sweetness.

Can I use frozen mango chunks to make mango juice?

Yes, but ideally you would defrost the bag of mango chunks in the refrigerator overnight (or at least 8 hours) before blending it. Otherwise, the blended mixture will be frozen like a smoothie.
