Mango Carrot Ginger Smoothie

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, 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.

Ingredients:

1 mango, peeled, sliced into chunks
1/2 orange, peeled, quartered
1 large carrot, sliced into large chunks
1 1/2 cups soy milk, plain
1 (1-inch) piece, peeled fresh ginger
6 ice cubes
