Hott and spicy mango and passion fruit smoothie

Mango and passion fruit smoothie with a punch

Refreshing mango and passion fruit smoothie that is, sweet, tangy, hot and spicy.

A week before easter I went to Athens on a field trip and arround the hotel we where staying there was a bar that served a cocktail similar to this, needless to say it became very popular. This smoothie is my interpretation and without alcohol.

Hot and spicy mango and passionfruit smootie recipe, fruit

Yields 2-4 glasses:

400 g peeled and chopped ripe mango
2 cups crushed ice
2-3 chilies (use the amount you desire)

4+2 passion fruits, pulp of 4 for blending and 2 for decoration

For a naughty version

Hott and spicy mango and passion fruit smoothie

Combine all the ingredients in a blender and process until smooth. Fill glasses with the smoothie and decorate with the remaining passion fruit pulp, some chopped chili,  mint and serve.

I used pulp and seeds of the passion fruit because it is good for you and I thinkthe black specks looks decorative with the yellow in the glass. You can read about the passion fruit seed  HERESmoothie recipe
