Mango papaya shake recipe

If you need a vitamin C punch, this tropical shake is loaded with it. You’ll also get a healthy helping of vitamin A from the papaya, which is important for eye health, as well as papain, an enzyme that helps break down protein. And the mangoes are packed with polyphenols, which act as antioxidants and protect your cells against damage.

Personalization tips

  • Lighter, recovery-focused day: Add a ¼ teaspoon of cayenne pepper for some flavor variations with a little heat and the same amount of capsaicin, which has shown potential to improve blood circulation to give your muscles needed nutrients more efficiently.
  • Extra-hard workout: Make this your post-workout fueling option by adding 1 to 2 scoops of Onnit’s Creatine powder. Creatine supports muscle gain and minimizes potential muscle loss after a hard workout.
