Spicy Mango & Pineapple Green Smoothie

Posted by on Jul 2, 2014 in Recipes | 0 comments

Today I’m sharing with you my current green smoothie obsession. This is a smoothie that will give you a nice wake-up kick! The flavors are bright and intense, sweet and spicy, and absolutely delicious.

The cayenne pepper hits about 10 seconds after you take a sip and lingers for a little while afterwards. But the cayenne is balanced beautifully by the tangy pineapple and sweet, juicy mango. I add chia seeds for an extra dose of essential omegas and fiber.
