Peach Mango Smoothie
Peach Mango Smoothie
Peach Mango Smoothie is quick, easy and clean deliciousness. Summer is coming to an end, so as the grocery stores are in transition with their seasonal produce, I wanted to share a few more of my favorite summer recipes.

Peach Mango Smoothie Recipe
- 2 cups of water (1/2 cup per serving)
- 2 cups of ice (1/2 cup per serving)
- 8 scoops of protein powder (2 scoops per serving. I used (Arbonne Vanilla Protein Powder*)
- 2 cups of frozen peaches (1/2 cup per serving)
- 1 cup of frozen mango (1/4 cup per serving)
- 1/2 tsp of salt (1/8 tsp per serving)
- 8 packets of Monk Fruit in the Raw (2 packets per serving. See below in my notes section for more info on Monk Fruit.)
- Combine a single serving of water, ice, protein powder, peaches, mango, salt, and monk fruit in four different blender cups (I use Nutribullet, love it and have been using it for a few years. It’s easy to use and the cups and blade are dishwasher friendly)
- Purée each cup until smooth for about 45 seconds. Seal and refridgerate until ready to enjoy.
- Shake well before drinking.
I discovered this recipe in Rocco Dispirito’s “Rocco’s Healthy+Delicious” cookbook. This recipe serves 4 and each serving contains 181 calories, 0g of fat, 21g of protein, 17g of carbohydrates, and 10g of fiber.
*I want to take a moment to share some info regarding protein powder. Most protein powders contain either soy or whey. Both of which are not good for you. Soy contains estrogen which your body doesn’t need regardless of whether you’re male or female. Whey protein is highly processed, and contains dairy, which can cause negative effects to many people. Ever since I did a 30 day Arbonne cleanse, I now swear by their products. Arbonne protein powder contains 20g of plant based protein (pea protein, cranberry protein, and brown rice protein) in every serving. This helps support your muscles by delivering essential amino acids and more than 20 vitamins and minerals. It also has been clinically tested and certified to have a low glycemic index, so all you diabetics out there this protein powder is your jam!
Below is a chart of price comparison grocery stores. When reviewing this chart, keep in mind that the prices may have changed slightly from when I visited these stores. Please take into consideration when reviewing this chart that Whole Foods only offers organic options, and also offers coupons and cash back programs to its Amazon Prime members. The Target prices do not include the 5% red debit card discount, cartwheel offers (since these change weekly), or the $0.05 off per bag for any bags used from home. Also be sure to check Publix’s current bogo list. If you really desire convenience both Publix and Target offer delivery, and Target also offers buy online/store pick up too. This is a great option if you are trying to stay on a budget, because it prevents impulse purchases that can often happen from going into the store.
Whole Foods was the only grocery store that offered all the ingredients needed. If Whole Foods isn’t an option for you, I also provided links you can use to order the harder to find ingredients. However, monk fruit can be substituted for stevia or any other non-calorie sweetener. I prefer using monk-fruit or stevia because it is natural and easier for your body to digest. Monk fruit is the sweeter of the two sweeteners.
I hope this peach mango smoothie is a sweet delicious start to your day. If you love peaches, be sure to try Peach Raspberry Overnight Oats, Summer Peach Chicken Salad, and Peachy Keen Protein Smoothie.
I would love to hear back from all of you. What are your easy, healthy and quick go-to breakfast recipes?
