Ginger Carrot Mango Smoothie

I’ve been battling a head cold and haven’t had much energy for the past few days. So! This morning I wanted to boost my metabolism by adding some ginger to my smoothie. Additionally, the carrot juice provided me with a substantial source of beta carotene which is a precursor to vitamin A – works to maintain a healthy immune system. I also added mango and peach to provide myself with a source of vitamin C to also keep my immune system healthy.

Carrot Ginger Smothie


Ingredients (serves 1):
1/2 banana
1/4 cup carrot juice
1/4 cup plain greek yogurt (0% m.f.)
1/4 cup spinach
1 container dole peaches (canned in water)
1/4 cup frozen mango
2 tbsp water
1/4 tsp crushed ginger

Blend and drink up! — Feel free to add whey/protein powder if you are looking for additional protein other than from the greek yogurt source.
