This combination of carrots and mangos, especially when paired with the zing of fresh ginger, makes this one of the best tasting, most refreshing fruit an veggie smoothies I have tried. The added boost of a full days worth of vitamin A and C and a good dose of fibre, is sure to move this smoothie into your regular snack rotation.
I especially like it as a pre or post workout snack as it provides you with the necessary electrolytes for rehydrating as well as anti-inflammatory properties which aid in post-workout recovery. And if you re looking for an extra dose of protein, just decrease the water a bit and add in some non-fat vanilla Greek yogurt and a handful of spinach! Enjoy.
