Mangopeño Smoothie

The combination of mango and jalapeño might seem odd but you just might like it! And smoothies may just be an ultimate concoction for the healthy non-foodie!

Mango and jalapeño might seem like a weird combination for a smoothie. But its surprisingly refreshing and packs just a bit of heat from the pepper.

Smoothies are almost the ultimate in non-foodie concoctions. They don’t take a long time to make or to clean up afterward. Plus, they’re healthy (unless you replace the yogurt with ice cream…not that I ever do that.)

I add some protein powder for an extra boost as well as some yogurt and banana for texture, but if you’re vegan, you can subsitute hemp protein powder for the whey protein listed in this recipe and leave out the yogurt. It will be a little more green than it already is, but that just makes it more…interesting.

I frequently keep bag of frozen mango at hand and if I find bananas sitting out too long I stick ’em in the freezer. Having your ingredients frozen first gives your smoothie some extra thickness.

Special Equipment

  • Blender


  • 1 mango or about 3/4 cup frozen mango chunks
  • 1/2 jalapeño pepper
  • 2 tbsp lime juice (juice of one lime)
  • 1 banana
  • 1/4 cup whey protein powder unflavored, but you can substitue your own. I like Whey Factors.
  • 1/2 tsp stevia sweetener optional
  • 1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1/5 cups water mixed with ice cubes

How to Make It

  • Cut up the mango and banana.
  • Remove seeds from the jalapeño and slice (if you want to.)
  • Put that, along with everything else, in the blender and blend it.


  • I like to use Whey Factors protein powder. I found that my picky eater was less likely to notice this protein powder if I put it in a smoothie for her.
  • For a vegan alternative, use hemp protein powder — just a tablespoon vs  1/4 c, depending on your taste, and omit the yogurt. You might need to add 1/4 c more water.
  • For smoothies (unless I plan to take a photo of the fruit) I like to sometimes use frozen bananas or mango chunks. For the mangos, I sometimes have a Costco-sized bag of frozen fruit for smoothies in my freezer. You can also make single-size frozen “smoothie mix”bags so on days when you REALLY don’t feel like prepping anything, you can just throw it all in the blender.
