The Mango Chili Smoothie.

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.
