Brighten your day with this refreshing, citrus-infused mango drink. The main ingredients for this vibrant drink are simple: oranges, frozen mango and chia seeds. No juicer required!

Ingredient List:

Produce | Orange(s)

Pantry | Chia seeds

Freezer | Frozen mango

Optional | Lemon juice, Pure maple syrup, Cold filtered water, Ice cubes, Cayenne pepper

Equipment: Blender


  • 1/4 to 1/2 cup cold filtered water 
  • 1 large ripe orange (Navel, Valencia or two small clementines)
  • 1 cup frozen mango 
  • 2 to 3 teaspoons chia seeds (black or white)


  1. Cut orange in half, peel the skin off and remove any seeds.
  2. In a blender, add all the ingredients: 1/4 cup water, orange, frozen mango, chia seeds and any optional add-ins. Blend, scraping down the sides as needed. If too thick, add an additional 1/4 cup cold filtered water.
  3. Enjoy immediately or keep chilled until serving. I do not recommend making this too far in advance as the chia seeds will plump up.



  • To add tartness, add 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice 
  • To add sweetness, add 1 to 2 teaspoons pure maple syrup (or honey if not vegan)
  • For an immunity boost, add a pinch (or a smidgen) of cayenne pepper or dried ginger
