One thing you must know about me, I love spicy food! There is just something about adding a dash of sriracha or hot sauce to a meal that takes it to the next level!

This recipe was inspired by an Instagram post I made a while back with my favorite afternoon snack combo, mango, and chili lime seasoning. This seasoning mix brings out the flavors of the mango while adding the perfect amount of heat to it.

For this smoothie, in lieu of the premade seasoning mix that contains a fair amount of sodium, I have used chili pepper flakes and fresh lime instead. Chili peppers contain capsaicin which has proven to be an aid to weight loss, helpful in treating cancer and relieves pain.

Chili peppers pair great with fresh ginger root to detox the body. This power couple detoxes the body which eliminates any excessive toxins that are present in the bloodstream, liver, and other excretory organs. This power couple also provides a concoction that has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties to support the cleansing and protection of your body’s main system.

Since ginger, chili peppers, and lime can provide an intense flavor, mangoes, as well as coconut milk and bananas, balance the flavors out. At the end of it all, the harmony of the flavors-- it’s purely delicious!

In honor of #cincodemayo, you could easily make this smoothie recipe into margaritas by adding tequila! Don’t forget to rim your glasses with lime and the chili lime seasoning!
