Mango Blueberry Ginger Smoothie Recipe

December 6, 2016

The mango and banana coupled with the thick Greek yoghurt has such a rich and creamy taste that you will have to convince yourself this drink is healthy.  Don’t fret becuase this smoothie is packed with dense nutrients and vitamins.  Research shows that mangoes, one of the most consumed fruits in the world, lowers cholesterol, clears skin and could prevent colon cancer.   Blueberries are high in fiber and support heart health.  Raspberries are high in anti-oxidants such as Vitamin C and gallic acid which has cancer fighting properties.  Ginger aids digestion and is known for reducing muscle soreness while the lemon helps push toxins out the body.   Flax seeds are a high-powered super-food rich in fiber and good fats.   Enjoy this delicious drink as a meal replacement in the morning or post-workout to refuel your muscles.   Read about My Smoothie Philosophy:

Mango Blueberry Ginger Smoothie

2 Servings | Difficulty: EASY

1 cup water
1 Cup Greek yoghurt
1/2 inch ginger root
Juice of half lemon
1 organic Banana
1 1/2 cups chopped mango
1/2 cup blueberries
2 tbsp flax seeds
1 cup frozen raspberries
1/2 cup ice

Put everything in order listed in a Vitamix or other high-powered blender.  If using a Vitamix, choose the “Frozen Desserts” setting and let that magic machine do the work!  Once the blender stops, check the consistency.  Add more water if you like a thinner smoothie or more ice if you want it frothier.

Jackie’s Tip 💡:  Save old water bottles or other reusable containers to make your smoothie portable for the whole family.  Use a funnel to avoid a mess.   Healthy on the go!
