Mango and Chocolate Protein Smoothie

May we introduce a healthy menu from foodaciously.com to you?

This menu is absolutely healthy! It’s made without protein powder, using only natural ingredients (plus a bar of dark chocolate). 🥭😋

The best smoothies are those that provide quality carbs, fibres, healthy fats, and proteins. We prepared this mango and chocolate protein smoothie recipe with fresh #Mahachanok mango chunks, Greek yogurt, almond butter, chia seeds, and cacao. It’s a real energy booster just waiting to be tasted.

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 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. Opt for a low-fat variety but not a fat-free one, as those have a poorer nutritional profile and often contain highly processed ingredients.

Our recipe is also high in fibres thanks to its high fruit content and chia seeds, providing almost 40% of your daily intake.

INGREDIENTS (available at Coles)

  • Ripe Mahachanok Mango = 250 g
  • Chia Seeds = 2 tbsp
  • Water = 90 mL
  • Greek Yogurt = 280 g

  • Almond Butter = 2 tsp
  • Cacao Powder = 20 g
  • Dark Chocolate (optional) to taste
INSTRUCTIONS

STEP 1.

Mix water with the chia seeds in a small bowl and stir well. Allow the seeds to soak for 5 minutes or until they have absorbed the water and formed a thick and viscous mixture.

STEP 2.

In the meantime, peel and cut the mango into chunks.

Add the chopped mango, Greek yogurt, and almond butter to the blender bowl of your food processor.

Blitz until you have a creamy smoothie. Transfer half of the prepared mango smoothie to a clean bowl.

STEP 3.

Then, add soaked chia seeds and cacao powder to the remaining half of the smoothie in the blender.

Pulse until the ingredients are well incorporated and you have a smooth mixture.

STEP 4.

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 the 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.
