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)
1 tbsp fresh grated ginger
1 lime, juice only
4+2 passion fruits, pulp of 4 for blending and 2 for decoration
Fresh mint

For a naughty version

1 tbsp honey or clear syrup (add to blender)
2-4 cc vodka per glass depending on the size of the glass (pour this over the ice, then add smoothie and stirr)

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
