Mango Kiwi Coolers

Mango Kiwi Coolers! The perfect summer treat. Colorful, sweet, fresh layers of kiwi and mango that also pack a nutritious punch.

There are lots of reasons a person might decide to make mango kiwi coolers, ranging from wow-it’s-hot-out, to okay-yes-could-have-probably-eaten-more-fruits-and-vegetables-this-week, to need-a-pick-me-up-in-the-form-of-a-sweet-treat.

I’m kind of checking all those boxes right now.

This smoothie can be an afternoon snack, a night-time patio-sitting treat, or honestly… second breakfast?

It’s sweet but it’s also light and refreshing, especially if you get extra friendly with the lime zest and maybe even go rogue with some fresh mint or basil additions. I mean… you wouldn’t be wrong.

Ingredients for mango kiwi coolers in bowls.

Even though it can stand in for a nightly drink and/or a milkshake, this beauty actually packs a wholesome and nutritious punch with:

  • Mango
  • Kiwi
  • Spinach
  • Yogurt

But I don’t even want to sell you this as a healthy smoothie because that’s not its best feature – it’s just more of a juicy, delicious, special occasion treat.

Special occasion being… say, it’s Thursday and you made it through the day? TREAT UP.

It’s colorful and beautiful, it’s sweet and fresh, it’s lightly creamy and reminiscent of a mango lassi, and when those glasses start to have sweat beads rolling down the sides, you know you have landed this one just right.

Long live juicy summer.

This recipe was inspired by an old cookbook (2009!) that used to be my FAVORITE when I was getting started with cooking and blogging. I recently found it in a box and started cooking through again – it’s called Fresh Food Fast by Cooking Light!

Mango Kiwi Coolers

Mango Kiwi Coolers! The perfect summer treat. Colorful, sweet, fresh layers of kiwi and mango that also pack a nutritious punch.



Mango Layer

  • 2 1/2 cups frozen diced mango
  • 1/2 cup plain yogurt
  • 1/4 cup honey (more or less to taste)
  • zest of one lime
  • 1/2 cup to 1 cup ice
  • water as needed

Kiwi Layer

  • 3 kiwis, peeled
  • 1/2 cup plain yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1/2 cup spinach
  • 1/2 cup ice
  • extra kiwi slices for topping


  1. Blend the mango smoothie. Divide between two large glasses or 3-4 small glasses. Tap the bottom of glasses on your hand or a counter to smooth out the top surface of the smoothie (this makes a nicer line when you add the second smoothie on top).
  2. Blend the kiwi smoothie. Pour on top of the mango layer in the glass. Top with kiwi slices. Grab a straw and enjoy!



Take it up a notch or seven with a hit of fresh mint or basil!

    I just went food shopping today and stocked up on Strawberries, Pineapples, Avocados, Bananas, Watermelon, and whole Ginger. I’m going to blend an anti-Coronavirus Immune boosting smoothie and jar them up in mason jars. My diet is slowly changing and making fruit jars-fruit smoothies in my personal opinion is a great way to stay healthy year round.

    Love the contrast in color. This is the perfect summer recipe. I have been craving smoothies for so long and this came out way better than expected! Also delicious with a shot of vodka.

    Your drinks are very suitable in the summer. I really like kiwi, so I’ll add more. Hope it will be as appealing as yours.

    I added vodka and a little more honey to the mango blend. #boom Tequila works too if you lose the kiwi. Just doesn’t go with kiwi… or substitute with raspberries. LOL

      I forgot to add that I appreciate the addition of spinach. Gives it a nice flavor and I feel like I have done something good for my body. 🙂

    Just made these this past weekend – the mango part was delicious, but the kiwi part was super bitter – we all ended up scraping off the kiwi layer and just eating the mango layer.

      Promised my kids a “special treat” but after a few mins of slurping they both said they didn’t like it and requested something way junkier, plus the smoothie didn’t separate yellow & green like it did in the pics. Instead it turned “greige”. I think the mango layer was good but no one liked the kiwi layer.

      Always a huge fan of POY and just thought honest feedback was helpful since I basically only cook POY or Smitten Kitchen and 97% of recipes are a hit.
