I used frozen mango un thawed and added 1/2 fresh mango. Might try some coconut and a splash of lime next time.

That sounds good.  May have to try that, too!

If you wanted to use more fresh mango, you could use a frozen banana.

This definitely satisfied my craving for dessert. I used almond milk, frozen mango, frozen banana, macadamia nuts, and a splash of vanilla extract. Delicious!

Outstanding. I used a frozen banana with the frozen mango to give it a creamier consistency. The macadamia nuts make this savory and more interesting than the standard fruit smoothie.

Any suggestion to replace the banana? I'm very allergic(can't breath) So many ice creams use frozen banana.

You could try substituting avocado for the creaminess a banana would have provided and perhaps add a medjool date or two for the sweetness that would be lacking otherwise.  Or, a second option might be to substitute papaya for the banana, but I think it might change the taste a lot.

Tofu works to make a pudding like avocado does so maybe try a small recipe - but I dont know how tofu freezes.

I love this recipe. I used to make it as written but now I skip the plant milk, use about equal parts frozen banana and frozen mango, an ounce of macadamia nuts and 1/2-1 cup water for blending. This is also wonderful with 1/4 teaspoon vanilla bean powder. I eat this as my last food of the day before starting my intermittent fasting overnight. It’s so satisfying and delicious that it signals my body not to eat for the rest of the evening.
