Spicy Mango Juice

This spicy mango juice with coconut, lime, and chile is one of my all-time favorite juice recipes because it’s decadent and refreshing, and has an awesome back-end kick.

I enjoy this juice with the pulp to get the benefit of the whole mango. Straining mangoes feels wasteful. The texture is silky smooth. But, if you prefer a pulp-free juice, strain. If you like things hot, juice the chile whole without removing the rib and seeds. For kids or heat-phobic adults, leave it out altogether.

The Health Benefits Of This Spicy Mango Juice

Mangoes are loaded with antioxidant vitamins A (beta- carotene), C, and E, and phytonutrients that rage against free radicals. With alkaline buffers, tons of pectin, these buttery beauties also boost digestive, heart, eye, and brain function, and promote gorgeous skin and hair. Mango’s glutamine acid is awesome for brain power, too.

Lime – This alkalizing tart tamer is a potent detoxifier and natural antibiotic that improves liver function, relieves constipation, and can help dissolve kidney and gall stones. High levels of vitamin C help boost immunity and alleviate symptoms of osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis, as well as combat heart disease. Limes provide calcium and magnesium for strong bones and teeth, along with unique compounds that have powerful antioxidant properties. The flavonoids in limes have even been shown to halt abnormal cell division.

While limes are cooling, this superstar can be balanced with warming foods like cayenne and fennel. We use limes in lots of juice blends to lift the earthy and pungent quality of leafy greens and vegetables, add zip and tang, and balance the acidifying impacts of high-sugar fruits. You may want to remove the rinds of these fruits before juicing, as in substantial quantities they’re slightly toxic, or you may enjoy the zesty punch it adds—a good compromise is a bit of the peel along with the flesh.

Raw Coconut Water – Low in calories and carbohydrates, and fresh raw coconut water is a natural isotonic energy drink that’s rich in hydrating electrolytes. Crack open a coconut (the easiest way is with a Coco-Jack tool), and use the water and scoop out the meat. Alkalizing and cleansing, coconut water boosts the function of the liver, thyroid, kidneys, and gall bladder. It also has beautifying powers, too. It’s great for preventing cracked lips and age spots on the skin.

Chiles – The capsaicin found in peppers heats the body to boost metabolism, burn fat, and dial up detox. Loaded with antioxidants, chiles combat oxidative stress to boost immunity. Chiles add an awesome back-end note to juices, lift the pungency of leafy greens and the earthiness of beets. Remove the rib and seeds to reduce the heat. Or, push the entire chile through your machine.

  1. I ADORE Mangoes too! I found a box of 12 for $5 last week at the farmers market and squealed out loud and did a little dance right there. I got a few weird looks but mostly smiles. That’s OK. They make me happy. This juice sounds DIVINE and I will definitely make – sounds like my kind of juice – sweet and spicy. Thanks, Tess! 🙂

  2. This juice sounds delicious! I love just about anything spicy. I never thought of putting a green chili in my juice – but I like the idea. Can’t wait to try it.

    1. Yes, adding a chili to fruit blends can really give everything a boost. LOVE chili and mangoes. I just cannot get enough of this juice. SOOO good.

    1. It depends what I am doing that day. If I am cleansing or detoxing I just drink juice all day. Sometimes, I will have this thick juice for my breakfast, and if I have more activity, I will have it as a midday/mid morning snack. This particular juice is sustaining as a meal. If you are juice fasting, these are absolutely a meal.
