What are the special ingredients in this metabolism-boosting strawberry mango smoothie ?

  1. Cayenne pepper. Numerous studies show that cayenne pepper revs up your metabolism, thanks to a compound called capsaicin. It helps to break down fatty acids in your fatty tissues, liver, and muscles. Also, it speeds up tissue heat production, which causes a loss of tissue fat. I know what you’re thinking now: Bring on the cayenne and let’s feel the burn! Both of them!
  2. Cinnamon. Not only does this beautiful ground spice bring exceptional flavor to food and drinks, but it helps regulate your blood sugars. This is important because blood sugar (glucose) levels can affect how hungry and energetic we feel. Glucose also determines whether we store or burn fat. And let’s not forget the antioxidants cinnamon contains. Sounds like a good idea to add a pinch to all of our smoothies from now on, right?
  3. Mangooooo (say that in your best Oprah voice)! It’s full of boat loads of antioxidants that in turn boost your metabolism because they are full of nutrients, which help your body work more efficiently.

How to cut a mango

Okay, so now that you’re jazzed about making this smoothie, you might still be intimidated on how to cut a mango.

Have no fear! With the help of YouTube and some practice, you’ll be a fruit slicing ninja in no time. But here are the direction in case you’re better with words:

  1. Peel skin from mango using a peeler.
  2. Hold mango upright. Identify the where the longest side of the mango is, which is where the pit is.
  3. Use a large chef’s knife to cut on each side of the pit. You will be left with two halves.
  4. Cut vertically, then horizontally, making small cubes. BOOM. You’re done!
