Up Your Smoothie Game! 3 Combos You Need!

Some things just go better together: Peanut butter + jelly, avocado + toast, almond milk + espresso. These are tried-and-true combos, but we have a few totally new ones for ya that we’re kind of obsessed with. Each combo is delish and delivers major health perks for your bod. Try them out after your next workout for a surprising new twist on your morning smoothie!

Mango + Turmeric 

Turmeric contains a compound called curcumin that’s an anti-inflammatory powerhouse. It’s been used to soothe chronic inflammation conditions like arthritis, and it can even ease stress and reduce soreness after a tough workout. (Read more about turmeric’s incredible benefits HERE!) Pair the spice with mango for some tropical vibes.

Serves 1

Ingredients:

1 cup unsweetened almond milk

1 scoop vanilla Perfect Fit Protein

1/2 cup mango, frozen or fresh

1/2 frozen banana, sliced

1/2 tsp. ground turmeric

1/2 lemon, juiced

Toppings: We love this one with 2 Tbsp. granola and 1 Tbsp. goji berries!

Strawberry + Ginger 

Just like turmeric, ginger has its own anti-inflammatory tricks to help reduce soreness. Plus, it adds an extra kick to the smoothie. Strawberries deliver vitamin C and add a hint of sweetness.

Serves 1

Ingredients:

1 cup unsweetened almond milk

1 scoop vanilla Perfect Fit Protein

1/2 cup frozen strawberries

1/2 frozen banana, sliced

1/4 tsp. ground ginger

Toppings: Add a few fresh strawberries to the top!

Coffee + Cayenne

Cayenne pepper is a girl’s metabolism-boosting best friend! The compound capsaicin in cayenne raises your body’s internal temperature, which burns extra calories. Pair it with the metabolism-revving effects of caffeine and you’re going to be glowing, girl!

Serves 1

Ingredients:

1 cup unsweetened almond milk

1 scoop vanilla Perfect Fit Protein

1 shot espresso

1/4 cup greek yogurt

1 pinch cayenne

Toppings: Add an extra sprinkle of cayenne if you like extra spice!

  4. I NEVER would have thought to put coffee and cayenne together – brilliant! Bet that combination would also make a killer latte….

    1. Errr… I mean obviously there’s coffee in a latte, lol ;-D But a latte with cayenne – has anyone tried it?

  5. These sound SO good! I’ve been wanting to add more turmeric to my diet – and I LOVE mango. Definitely going to try that asap! Thanks for the recipes! :)

  6. Just tried the mango smoothie. It was delicious and I never would have thought to combine those ingredients. Thanks! I also used your mango cutting technique which was super helpful!

  7. OMG I just made the mango and turmeric smoothie and it is delicious! I have a question, though. I have read that you should eat black pepper with turmeric to get the most benefits. Should be putting a little black pepper in my smoothie? Or am I still getting some benefits so it’s fine?

  8. The coffee cayenne is absolutely delicious! Having it after meta-d is like whoa 😆
