Bright, sweet and flavorful, a big glass of this fresh orange mango juice is how you should start your morning!
There is nothing quite as delicious as a cup of fresh squeezed orange juice in the morning. However, fresh orange mango juice is definitely just as good, if not better.
The sweet flavor of the mango really adds a tasty, tropical taste to the juice. We add even more tropical flavor by mixing in some fresh coconut water. The end result is a drink that will make you want to get out of bed in the morning.

Ingredients in Orange Mango Juice
You only need three ingredients to make this tasty juice. That’s right, just three! Here is what you will need to get together before you start juicing:
- 2 oranges
- 2 mangos
- 1 cup coconut water
I bet you already have those ingredients in your house! If not, they are very common and can be quickly found in almost any grocery store.
We like to use big, naval oranges. They tend to have a lot of juice and have just the right amount of sweetness. Naval oranges are also a little bit tangy so you get that delicious citrus kick that will help you wake up in the morning.
Feel free to use any kind of orange to make this tasty orange mango juice. All oranges will work! Even tangerines can be a nice switch, adding more sweetness to the drink.
You can also replace the coconut water with regular water in a pinch. We use coconut water to add more tropical flavor to the juice. Coconut water is also full of electrolytes which help you stay heathy and hydrated.
How to Make Perfect Juice
Making fresh juice is really not too hard, especially if you have a juicer. Just pop the fruit into the juicer and you are done! Fresh fruit juice just pours right out. Discard all the left over pulp and enjoy the clear, pure glass of fresh mango orange juice.
If you do not have a juicer, simply toss the mango and peeled orange into a blender and puree. Mango orange juice with pulp is quite delicious and the blender will make it perfectly.
If you want a pulp-free version of our orange mango juice using the blender, simply puree the fruits and then pour the juice through a fine mesh strainer. Pulp-free juice will pour out and you can discard the stuff left behind in the strainer. Mix in that cold coconut water and you are good to go!
How Much Juice in an Orange?
How much juice in one orange, you may be wondering. How big of a glass of juice will you get with this recipe? That is a great question!
One average sized orange makes about 4-5 tablespoons of juice and a whole mango has about the same. You will get about ⅔ of a cup of juice that is then topped off with coconut water. That’s a lot juice! But don’t worry, you’ll drink every sip without a problem. It is pretty hard to resist this fresh juice. Enjoy!
