This rockin’ lime smoothie is made with fresh mango, cucumber, lime, and mint- and my favorite part-cayenne pepper. I know it might sound like a strange combination, but somehow it works! 

If you are sensitive to spicy food, I would recommend starting with a little cayenne and add more as you go. As they say, you can always add more, but you can’t take it out if you add too much.

My personal preference is 1/4 teaspoon of cayenne, but for this recipe I kept it at 1/8 teaspoon to start. Feel free to spice it up, if you desire.
