5-Ingredient Spicy Mango Green Smoothie

I’ve long been one of those people who can’t resist sprinkling some chili and cayenne on my fresh mango slices.  But it wasn’t until recently that the idea occurred to me to do the same with my mango smoothies!

Now, I’m totally hooked. 

I’m telling you, that extra kick of cayenne will instantly liven up any green smoothie.  And when paired with lots of fresh ginger (for extra spiciness), sweet mango, creamy almond milk, and lots of feel-good greens, this smoothie is just all kinds of delicious.  Plus, it’s naturally vegan and gluten-free, and only takes a few minutes to make.  And if you’re not into mango, no worries, this recipe also tastes just as delicious using frozen pineapple or peaches.

So if you’re looking to spice up your smoothie game, quite literally, jump onboard the spicy smoothie train and let’s blend one up together!

Mango Green Smoothie Ingredients

Spicy Mango Green Smoothie Ingredients:

To make this spicy green smoothie recipe, you will need:

  • Frozen mango: Or this recipe is also delicious with frozen pineapple or peaches.
  • Almond milk: Or your preferred kind of milk.
  • Fresh ginger: I highly recommend fresh over powdered if you’d like the extra kick.
  • Baby spinach: Or your preferred smoothie greens.
  • Cayenne powder: As much or as little as you prefer.

I also like to add in a good squeeze of fresh lime juice, if I happen to have it on hand.  And if you’re a fan of the chili/mango combo, feel free to also add in 1/4 teaspoon of chili powder.

    This is a new fave of mine! I put 1/2 tsp cayenne in mine to really bring the heat — so good! I would have never thought to add spice to my smoothie. I add lime to mine, as suggested, as well. I’ve made this several times this week already! I miss trying new smoothies — please share some more new smoothie recipes :)
