Mango Guava Chocolate Protein Smoothie

mango guava chocolate smoothie recipe to boost breast milk and support muscle recovery

Discovering baby guavas at my local Aldi was a first for me. I caught one whiff of their fruity, tropical vacation-scent (through my face mask, even!) and immediately popped them into my cart. And, Mama, they did not disappoint!

Guavas are high in fiber, and they’ve been used in traditional medicine practices for centuries to ease constipation (1)—think of them as one of Mother Nature’s laxatives. Typically, you’d remove the seeds before eating the pear-like inside of a regular-size guava, but these babies can be eaten whole—seeds, skin and all. If you make this recipe in a high-powered blender the seeds will be completely pulverized, making a very thick, creamy smoothie. 

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup Mama Love Protein
  • 1 cup Mango, frozen
  • 1 cup Baby Guavas, about 5
  • 1 cup Almond Milk, unsweetened

Instructions

Place all ingredients in a blender. Blend on high until smooth. If the smoothie is too thick, add water by the tablespoon reaching the consistency you prefer. Serve cold.
