On a side note sorry I have been MIA for the last two weeks.  January and Human Resources equal extra hours focused on W2’s and my new favorite thing the 1095 C form, thanks Affordable Health Care Act (said with heavy sarcasm 😉 )  Seriously January should be called Hug a Human Resources Person ♥ month or give them a bottle of wine!  This Spicy Apple Mango Smoothie has been my go to on busy mornings because it’s delicious and easy to make!

Ingredients for Spicy Apple Mango Smoothie:

1 Carrot, peeled and chopped

1/2 Avocado, pitted

1 Mango, pitted and peeled

1/2 Cup Cinnamon Apple Sauce (I used one of those single serve cups)

1/2 Lime, juiced

1/8 Teaspoon Cayenne Pepper

1 1/2 Cups Water

1 Cup Ice

Prepare the ingredients for the Spicy Apple Mango Smoothie as listed above; then place in the Vitamix or whatever blender you have.  I just bought a Vitamix and I think it’s my new favorite kitchen gadget! (non paid endorsement, just really love it)  Blend the Spicy Apple Mango Smoothie on high for one minute.  If the smoothie is too thick you can always thin it out with some additional water or ice.

Depending on your tolerance for heat you might want to adjust the Cayenne Pepper.  Keep in mind that the longer the smoothie sits with the Cayenne pepper the more “awake”/spicy it will be.  I hope you enjoy this Spicy Apple Mango Smoothie as much as I do!
