An Effort to End Nutritional Ignorance

RECIPE: Mango and Spinach Smoothie

Mango. It’s a nutritionally loaded fruit with 100% of the daily need for vitamin C, 35% for vitamin A, 20% of folate, 10% of vitamin B-6 and 8% of vitamin K and potassium. I am big fan, but I’ve not got a good go to recipe that calls for mango; so I do what I often do… throw it in my vitamix with a few other ingredients until I find my favorite combo.  This smoothie is super simple and even my 9 month old enjoys the result! (hence the baby jars)

Mango and SPinach

In a blender combine:

1/2-1 cup spinach (or just a handful)

1/2-1 cup water

1/2-1 cup chunks of frozen organic mango (ala Trader Joe’s)

The juice of 1/2 lemon

2 dashes powdered ginger

1 dash turmeric
