I know what you’re thinking after reading the title of this recipe… “A spicy smoothie?! That’s just crazy!” Rest assured, the “spice” in this Mango Spice Shake is super mild, addicting and delicious!
What inspired this recipe? I spend a lot of time in Los Angeles, and I’ve grown to love the iconic fruit carts that serve sliced fruits, (like watermelon, mangoes, and pineapple to name a few), topped with chili powder and lime juice! This recipe was created to embody the similar flavors of these exciting fruit cups, where the dash of cayenne pepper truly enhances and complements the fruity notes in this shake!
So, go ahead… Make your taste buds dance with 310 Vanilla, banana, mango, spinach, 310 MCT Oil, a dash of cayenne pepper, and unsweetened almond milk! Not only is this Mango Spice Shake a fun way to expand your palette, but it’s packed with superfoods that will give you the energy to power through your day!
With essential micro and macronutrients in every sip of this revitalizing shake, you can nourish your body with 19g of plant protein and 11.5g of nutritious fats.
Let’s check out some of the health benefits that this tropical, spicy-sweet shake has to offer!
Great Flavor & Nutrients: 310 Vanilla Shake
To balance the bold flavors of this recipe, we used a scoop of 310 Vanilla Shake, for subtle sweetness derived from plant-based sugar alternative, Stevia. This yummy protein powder encompasses all the essential nutrients you can get from a meal, but tastes like an indulgent dessert!
Plus, its extremely versatility, which makes it a must-have for any pantry! I always add a scoop of 310 Vanilla Shake to my smoothies to boost its nutritional value and flavor - It's really my go-to 310 Shake flavor. It’s packed with superfood greens, essential vitamins and minerals, gut-promoting probiotics, and 15g of plant-based proteins per serving to promote overall health!
And, if you’re like me and sometimes struggle with getting enough greens in your diet, 310 Shakes are a great way to easily increase your daily veggie intake. With a blend of superfood greens including spinach, kale, broccoli, spirulina, alfalfa juice powder, and beet juice extract in every serving, veggies have never tasted so good!
BONUS: There’s also a handful of spinach in this recipe, to add even more fiber and beneficial nutrients! The fruity flavors of this shake easily mask any “greens” taste, I promise!
Immune-Boosting Fruit: Frozen Mango
The next superfood ingredient in this recipe is mangoes - one of my favorites! Fresh mangoes, as delicious as they are, can be hard to find when not in season. Plus, they tend to have a short shelf life. Not to mention, they can be a bit pricey! Frozen mangoes are great to keep in your freezer so you can enjoy this succulent fruit year-round.
In addition to great taste, mangoes are also a source of fiber, vitamin C and antioxidants, (specifically beta carotene), to support digestion, immunity, and full-body health. Vitamin C can also help promote glowing, radiant skin, to help you feel your best, inside and out!
Hint of Healthy Spice: Cayenne Pepper Spice
The next ingredient we’re highlighting is... (you guessed it), cayenne pepper! As mentioned previously, cayenne pepper may be an unconventional ingredient to add into smoothies, but it pairs extremely well with the mango and banana in this recipe. And, you’ll get a taste of a classic L.A. beach staple food. Start off with just a dash of cayenne and if you’re ready for more heat, feel free to add more afterwards.
As for health benefits, capsaicin, an ingredient in hot peppers, has anti-inflammatory properties that may support heart health and overall health. Inflammation in the body can impact health in many ways, so it’s important to incorporate foods with anti-inflammatory properties, such as cayenne pepper, to help combat the buildup!
