Instructions

  1. Add mango, avocado, orange and orange zest to a high speed blender.
  2. Mix lime juice and water (or almond milk or coconut water) and pour ¼ cup of mixture into blender and blend until smooth and creamy.
  3. Taste a spoonful of the smoothie and add more liquid if too thick. Add cayenne and honey, if using, and blend again until combined.

Serving Suggestion: Top with extra diced mango and avocado chunks along with a squeeze of lime.

*A medium mango averages 12-ounces and a ripe, 12-ounce mango will provide about 1 cup of fruit. Peel (1 to 2 mangos, depending on size) and cut into cubes, then freeze for a few hours or more, or purchase frozen mango cubes.

**Large avocados are recommended for this recipe. A large avocado averages about 8 ounces. If using smaller or larger size avocados adjust the quantity accordingly.
