A protein shake – or smoothies as some people like to call them – can be as basic or as complicated as you want. We like to be adventurous here and find recipes that are, well, maybe not the first thing you would think of.
Many people, most in fact, spice up their basic protein shake. Most shakes come in multiple flavors: vanilla, chocolate, strawberry, etc. But that can get boring. So take some time to make it more interesting. We will have more recipes coming soon.

Today’s Protein Shake Recipe: Orange – Mango Shake
Check out the Orange-Mango Protein Shake recipe for today. Because you probably already link oranges and mangoes – why not put them together, right? This turns out to be a great combination.
Mangoes are one of my personal favorites of all time. But they can be a little messy when you eat a fresh, ripe one. Worth it though. I remember living in Fiji and we had as many mangoes as we wanted from the tree in our yard. As long as we could shoo away the local kids from knocking down all the green ones before they could get ripe.
Orange is a tart addition that mixes well with the natural sweetness of the mango. The natural sugar from the fruit will add to the calories for this protein shake so be careful there if you are looking to lose a few pounds. It is similar to the Pomegranate-Berry Shake in that respect. But the sugar is natural and not from pure sources. Here is the recipe:
Directions: Shakes taste best cold. Blend all ingredients together with ice in a blender until creamy.
2 scoops of vanilla shake mix
2 mandarin oranges (peeled)
½ cup frozen mango
10 oz. cold water
