Mango Chile Smoothie
- 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.
