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. 

This recipe was originally created for Mama Love Chocolate Protein, which is no longer in production. Looking for a great alternative? For a similar taste and consistency, try using a high-quality, plant-based protein powder made from yellow peas, like Naked Pea Chocolate Pea Protein Powder


  • 1 serving Plant-base Chocolate Protein Powder
  • 1 cup Mango, frozen
  • 1 cup Baby Guavas, about 5
  • 1 cup Almond Milk, unsweetened


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.
