Mangoes are on sale at my grocery and I bought way too many of them. Usually I just eat them plain or make them into salsa. I am needing some variety and this smoothie sounded like a wonderful breakfast. Add vodka and rim your glass with sugar for a cool treat on a hot summer afternoon.
Chili Lime Mango Smoothie (a variation of this recipe by Matchbox Kitchen)
- 1 mango, peeled and cubed
- 1/2 cup ice
- 1/2 cup limeade
- 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
- 1/4 tsp paprika
In a blender, combine all ingredients and blend into a smooth puree. Add more pepper if you want it spicier but be careful, the heat builds up as you drink it. Serves 1.
