Carrot Mango Smoothie

Carrot Mango Smoothie

 

Need a January pick me up? This combo of carrot, ginger, and mango is like a healthy “sorbet”…smooth enough for a straw, thick enough for a spoon 😎

It’s so vibrant and fresh and has only 3 INGREDIENTS! Carrot juice (I get store bought), frozen mango, and a tiny chunk of ginger (like 1/4 inch piece).

**I buy ginger fresh, peel it, chop it into bits and store it in the freezer to pop in smoothies. So easy and a little goes a long way! 

 

I was a skeptic but this was a surprisingly good vitamin C boost (because ain’t nobody got time to be sick!)…also good for nausea for all the preggos out there!

 

Carrot Mango Smoothie

YOU WILL NEED:

  • 1/2 c carrot juice (I get store bought)
  • 1 c frozen mango chunks
  • 1 piece of ginger chunk (like 1/4 inch piece)

 

TO MAKE:
1. Fill blender with approx 1 c frozen mango chunks
2. Pour in 1/2 c carrot juice
3. Add 1 piece of ginger
4. Blend in your Vitamix (mine is linked here), using the tamp stick to smoosh everything down if you want it really think like a sorbet, or adding more carrot juice if you want it thinner

 

That’s it! And kid approved too ✅ This was so easy and we will definitely be making this over the summer. I want to try making a larger batch and freezing it and seeing how the consistency is. And you better believe this is going in a popsicle mold for bath time!! 💦
