Pepper Passion

Ingredients

  • 1 red pepper - seeded
  • 1 yellow squash
  • 1 orange - peeled
  • 1 pinch cayenne pepper
  • 1 tbsp mangosteen
  • 1 tbsp pea protein
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup ice

Another natural aphrodisiac, Cayenne contains capsaicin, which increases circulation, heart rate, induces sweating and increases the sensitivity of nerve endings. Native to Indonesia, mangosteen is a purple fruit with potent anti-inflammatory properties, and is also full of antioxidants. Pea protein and sweet squash gives this protein a hearty, filling base, while the orange and red pepper provide a kick of vitamin C. Send tingles up and down your spine — and stay full until lunch — with this sweet smoothie.
