Today we want to show you how to make a delicious protein-rich mango smoothie you can enjoy at breakfast or as a post-workout drink. It's made without protein powder, using only natural ingredients.
The best smoothies are those which provide quality carbs, fibres, healthy fats, and proteins. Our mango and chocolate protein smoothie recipe is prepared with fresh mango chunks, greek yogurt, almond butter, chia seeds, and cacao. A true energy and nutritional powerhouse just waiting to be sipped.
You might wonder if chocolate and mango go well together. They do! Fruit and chocolate are often a great combination, as the bitterness of the chocolate softens the sweetness of the fruit, creating a pleasant and flavourful blend. Adding cacao to a smoothie or fruit bowl also boosts it with antioxidants and helps to improve your mood.
With a single serving of this smoothie, you get 50% of your daily protein intake, and we haven't used any 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.
Our 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!
Want to make this 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 using our Smart Search function.
