The words that come to mind when drinking this smoothie: Definitely different. Oddly sweet. Wonderfully fresh and spicy- I used a whole jalapeño. Surprisingly addictive-I drank both myself. Everyone needs a jalapeño in their smoothie! Thank you for sharing your recipe. Read More

It's... interesting. The addition of a jalapeno is a bit strange. I'm not sure if I'll make it a second time without tweaking it a bit more. I used orange juice in stead of water which I think made it a bit more sour than it should be. This stuff might actually make a decent marinade actually. Read More

I made this with a couple of alterations: 1. I used a whole jalapeno. 2. I cut the bananas mangos and jalapeno and froze them overnight. 3. I used half milk and half water. It still turned out delicious and will definitely make again. Thanks! Read More

I took the advice of adding a whole jalapeño plus I used plain unsweetened almond milk instead of water, and added pea protein. Perfection!! Read More

This smoothie was great I really enjoyed the addition of the jalapeno I also put extra jalapeno in mine as I like spice. I think next time I might try just a little bit of lime juice too for some brightness but it was great as is! Read More

I love this smoothie. I used frozen peaches instead of mangoes because that s what I had in my freezer still delicious! I used a whole jalapeño & next time I may add a little more because I love the spicy slightly sweet mix! Read More
