Mangoes are indigenous to India. The apple-sized, yellowish-orange fruit has a sweet-tart taste and mushy texture. The fruit is often used in smoothies and other fruit beverages. Fibrous mango skin is rich in nutrients, including carotenoids, and is beneficial to eat. You can juice mango peels -- which will yield a juice that's less sweet than the mango fruit itself -- to make juice that you can drink straight or add to a variety of beverages.

Things you need
- Peeling knife
Wash the mangoes well in cool water.
Peel the mangoes with a peeling knife or automatic peeler. When juicing mango skins, it's OK to have a little bit of the fruit pulp on the peels, so you do not have to be fastidious in your peeling.
Place the peels in a juicer, along with one tbsp of cool water per mango you used, and juice them on high until they're entirely puréed. If the peels do not juice well, cut them into smaller pieces and try again.
Add the mango peel juice into a protein smoothie. This will add taste to a healthy drink and ensure that the beverage does not lose any of its nutritional value, by adding unhealthy sugars.
Drink the mango peel juice straight to get the nutrients that mangoes provide without all the sugars. Mango peel juice provides the same nutritional value as mango fruit does but doesn't contain many of the fruit sugars that are in the pulp.
