Glowing Skin Recovery Mango Tahini Smoothie

I’ve been on a spin kick lately, going 2-3 times per week since after Christmas. I’ve enjoyed drinking a smoothie after this intense exercise since it’s hydrating and nourishing, especially when I’m not hungry or in the mood for “whole” food for a bit after that type of rigorous exercise. This Mango Tahini Smoothie has good-for-your-skin vitamins from mango, healthy fats from tahini, and antioxidants and vitamin C from the orange. I swapped cauliflower in for banana, since mangos are already sweet enough. Brightened with cardamom and cinnamon, this smoothie is a refreshingly cozy way to start your day and recover from some welcomed sweaty exercise.

Ingredients (serves 1).

  • 1/2 c frozen mango
  • 1/4 c frozen cauliflower
  • 1 orange segment/slice, peeled
  • 2 t tahini
  • 1/4 t cinnamon
  • 1/8 t cardamom
  • 1 T collagen powder (optional — omit if vegan)
  • 1 T vanilla plant-based protein powder (optional)
  • 1 c unsweetened almond milk
  • 3-4 ice cubes


  1. Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend well. Add more almond milk and/or water to reach a thinner consistency.
  2. Pour into a glass and sprinkle with extra cinnamon and cardamom before serving.
  3. Enjoy!
