We're Crushing on This Mango Mocktail

Updated: Jan 9

Our recipe for the Mango Cilantro Crush is ready for you to try this summer...or any time you want to think warm, beachy thoughts.


  • 2 cups frozen mango chunks

  • ¼ cup fresh lime juice

  • ½ cup fresh orange juice

  • 1 cup ice

  • 2 tablespoons fresh cilantro + 4 sprigs

  • 2 drops Lemon Vitality essential oil

  • 2 drops Orange Vitality essential oil

  • 3 drops Grapefruit Vitality essential oil


  1. Coarse chop cilantro and muddle it with the lime juice in a bowl or glass and let sit while you gather your other ingredients.

  2. Combine mango, orange juice, and ice in a blender on medium or high until smooth. Put blender on low. Strain lime juice, add in Vitality oils, and add into blender. (If you want and you don't mind the look of the green pieces, feel free to simply pour your cilantro and juice mix into the blender without straining.)

  3. Serve immediately...with a small sprig of cilantro for garnish.

  4. Other options for this: add a few tablespoons of this mix into a glass, add ice, and pour in some soda water or a flavored, carbonated water for a lighter, spritzer version of this mocktail.

Why Add Essential Oils to Your Diet?

  • Lemon Essential Oil: promotes an uplifted mood (especially in postpartum mamas) and healthy brain function.

  • Orange Essential Oil: supports digestion, a happy mood, and promoting healthy weight management.

  • Grapefruit Essential Oil: is awesome for promoting healthy weight, digestion, appetite, and cardiovascular system.

  • The only essential oils we promote ingesting are those labeled for dietary and supplement use from a trusted, reputable, and proven toxin-free source. The only brand we trust 100% is Young Living and they offer a whole line of Vitality essential oils, perfect to use as flavorful additions to foods and beverages as well as as dietary supplements to support whole-body wellness.

Wellness Benefits of Mangoes

  • Promote Protection from Cancer: Research has shown antioxidant compounds in mango fruit have been found to protect against colon, breast, leukemia and prostate cancers. These compounds include quercetin, isoquercitrin, astragalin, fisetin, gallic acid and methylgallat, as well as the abundant enzymes.

  • Healthy Cholesterol Levels: The high levels of fiber, pectin and vitamin C may aid in lowering serum cholesterol levels, specifically Low-Density Lipoprotein (the bad stuff).

  • Clear Skin: Can be used both internally and externally for the skin. Mangoes help clear clogged pores and eliminate occasional blemishes.

  • Eye Health: One cup of sliced mangoes supplies 25 percent of the needed daily value of vitamin A, which promotes good eyesight and prevents night blindness and dry eyes.

  • Whole-Body Alkalinity: The tartaric acid, malic acid, and a trace of citric acid found in the fruit help to maintain the alkali reserve of the body. Illness and disease cannot live in an alkaline body!

  • Supports Healthy Blood Sugar Levels: Mango leaves help normalize insulin levels in the blood. There's a traditional home remedy which involves boiling leaves in water, soaking through the night and then consuming the filtered decoction in the morning. Mango fruit also has a relatively low glycemic index (41-60) so moderate quantities will not spike your sugar levels.

  • Promotes Healthy Sex Drive: Balanced, proper amounts of Vitamin E (from whole foods, like mangoes) have been shown to support a healthy sex drive.

  • Healthy Digestion: Papayas are not the only fruit that contain enzymes for breaking down protein. There are several fruits, including mangoes, which have this healthful quality. The fiber in mangoes also aids digestion and elimination.

  • Helps Fight Heat Stroke: Juicing the fruit from green mango and mixing with water and a sweetener helps to cool down the body and prevent harm from overheating. From an Ayurvedic viewpoint, the reason people often get diuretic and exhausted when visiting equatorial climates is because the strong “sun energy” is burning up your body, particularly the muscles. The kidneys then become overloaded with the toxins from this process.

  • Boosts the Immune System: The generous amounts of vitamin C and vitamin A in mangoes, plus 25 different kinds of carotenoids keep your immune system healthy and strong.

Nutrition by the Numbers

(Percentages apply to daily value.) One cup (225 grams contain) contains the following:

  • 105 calories

  • 76 percent vitamin C (antioxidant and immune booster)

  • 25 percent vitamin A (antioxidant and vision)

  • 11 percent vitamin B6 plus other B vitamins (hormone production in brain and heart disease prevention)

  • 9 percent healthy probiotic fiber

  • 9 percent copper (copper is a co-factor for many vital enzymes plus production of red blood cells)

  • 7 percent potassium (to balance out our high sodium intake)

  • 4 percent magnesium
