Mango Carrot Ginger Smoothie

This content was last updated on December 16, 2019

A gorgeous Mexican mango was the inspiration for a flavorful, antioxidant-rich smoothie in my kitchen this week. In celebration of that particularly sunny shade of pink-orange-yellow found in mangos, carrots and citrus fruits, I whipped up a sweet, fruity, plant-based mango smoothie, with a bite of spicy ginger. This smoothie is packed with vitamin C, vitamin A and carotenoid compounds found in yellow-orange fruits and vegetables, which are linked to disease protection.
