A Detoxifying Mango Ginger Smoothie that’s ready in less than 5 minutes and packed full of spinach, mango, and one of the healthiest spices on the planet—ginger!
What you’ll love about this smoothie is that it’s sweet, creamy, packed full of vitamins, high in antioxidants and bursting with anti-inflammatory properties.
Another reason you’ll love this simple recipe is how easily you can swap ingredients. If you don’t have strawberries on hand, swap them for another fruit, like peaches. Prefer kale, rather than spinach? Give it a go! For a boost in protein, add a dollop of your favorite Greek yogurt.
The sweetness from the fruit and the refreshing zing from the ginger will make you forget there’s spinach in this smoothie, especially if you’re not a big fan of going green.
Why these ingredients ROCK!
Mango: Mangos are high in vitamin C, which keeps your immune system strong. They’re also high in fiber, which aids in digestion and staying regular.
Strawberries: Strawberries are rich in antioxidants, giving your immunity a big boost. Just like mangos, strawberries are high in vitamin C which is vital in collagen production (buh-bye wrinkles!). Oh, and did we mention they also reduce inflammation?
Banana: Filled with healthy fiber, bananas help fuel your body and encourage digestive health.
Baby Spinach: The benefits of baby spinach are endless. It’s PACKED with nutrients, high in antioxidants, supports brain health, strengthens your bones, keeps you energized, and reduces oxidative stress, DNA damage and disease.
Ginger: Ginger helps aid in weight loss, helps weight management, treats chronic indigestion and nausea, reduces menstrual cramps, improves brain function and helps fight infections. Basically, it’s an all-star superfood!
Almonds: Besides delivering a massive amount of nutrients, almonds minimize inflammation, assist with blood sugar control and are high in protein and fiber, which reduce hunger and can lower your overall calorie intake.
