MANGO CHILI SMOOTHIE RECIPE
Sweet and tropical with a hint of spice, the key to making this mango chili smoothie is using a chili powder made exclusively from red chiles—not one that’s a blend of other spices (like oregano and garlic), which offer too much of a savory flavor for smoothie purposes.

If you can’t find a pure chili powder, use a fresh, de-seeded, red jalapeño pepper instead.

Use these tips if making this smoothie in a “regular” blender. Otherwise quickly whip this up in a high powered blender, such as a Blendtec or Vitamix

This is a sweet, creamy smoothie with just enough heat/spice to keep you coming back for more.

  1. I really want to try this, but FIFTY grams of Carbs?! That’s a lot for a woman to consume at one meal.

    1. Blender Babes

      Hey Bonni! I have to disagree, especially when you are consuming good carbs. It really depends on your daily calorie intake. For example, if you consume 2,000 calories a day, between 900 and 1,300 calories should be from carbohydrates. That translates to between 225 and 325 grams of carbohydrates a day. This can be a meal replacement smoothie or a snack, depending on your needs. Plus it has fiber and is DELICIOUS!:) Happy Blending! ~Tarashaun
