Mango Chile Smoothie

Photography By Julie Morris


  • 2 1/2 Cups  frozen mango chunks
  • 3 Tablespoons  hemp seeds
  • 2 Tablespoons  dried goji berries
  • 1 Teaspoon  chili powder
  • 1 1/2 Cup  apple juice
  • 1 Cup  water
  • 2 Tablespoons  freshly squeezed lime juice
  •   Sweetener, to taste (optional)

Sweet and tropical with a hint of spice, the key to making this smoothie is using a chili powder made exclusively from red chiles — not one that’s a blend of other spices (like oregano and garlic), which offer too much of a savory flavor for smoothie purposes. If you can’t find a pure chili powder, use a fresh, de-seeded, red jalapeño pepper instead.
