Mango and Chocolate Protein Smoothie Preview
10m

Smoothies are a practical way to pack healthy ingredients easily as all you have to do is to sip them with a straw!

Today we want to show you how to make a delicious mango smoothie you can enjoy as a breakfast or post-workout meal and at home or on-the-go. The best smoothies are those which provide quality carbs, fibres, healthy fats, and proteins.

In fact, this easy smoothie recipe is prepared with fresh mango chunks, greek yogurt, almond butter, chia seeds, and cacao.

You might wonder if chocolate and mango go well together, well fruit and chocolate are always a great combination, just try it for yourself! Adding cacao powder also boost your smoothie with antioxidants and helps to improve your mood.

With a single serving, you get 50% of your daily protein intake even if this smoothie is prepared without protein powder. The high protein content comes from the yogurt, almond butter, and chia seeds. We recommend you use greek yogurt instead of plain yogurt as it has double the protein and half the carbs. You can choose full-fat or low-fat varieties but avoid fat-free ones as they have a poorer nutritional profile.

If you want to make this chocolate mango smoothie vegan or dairy free, just use soy yogurt instead of greek yogurt as it is a plant-based alternative with almost the same amount of proteins per gram. You can find more allergen-free recipes on our website thanks to our Smart Search function.

This recipe is also high in fibres thanks to its high fruit content and chia seeds, providing almost 40% of your daily intake. To learn more just click on the nutrition tab above!

step 1

To make this healthy smoothie recipe, let’s start with the chia seeds (1).

In a small bowl, combine water with the chia seeds and stir well. Allow the seeds to soak for 5 minutes or until they have absorbed the water and formed a thick and gelatinous mixture (2).

Now, prepare one glass per serving by adding a bottom layer of chocolate smoothie and then a top layer of mango smoothie.

Thanks to the thickness of chia seeds mixture, the mango smoothie won’t sink into the chocolate layer when you add it.

Serve immediately or store it in the fridge. 

Enjoy your creamy smoothie with a sprinkle of dark chocolate shavings and desiccated coconut flakes.

Foodacious Tips

This smoothie is super creamy as it is prepared without milk, but if you prefer a runnier consistency just add a splash of milk or plant-based alternatives before blending the ingredients.
