Mango Spice Blood Orange Paradise Smoothie
A spicy bright smoothie to certainly wake up your taste buds! This Spiced Paradise Smoothie will make you warm when it’s cold and gives you a feeling that you are in paradise.
Frozen mango and blood orange give this smoothie a very fun color that is guaranteed to make you smile.
The ginger and cayenne pepper are both warming and adds great spice!
When slicing the lime and blood orange I left the peel on and threw it in the blender. In most cases the peel (skin) is the most nutritious part, but if you do this make sure you are buying organic fruit. If you don’t you could be adding in pesticides, chemicals, or wax that maybe found on the peel. The pith, which is the white just under the skin, is high in vitamin c, fiber, and B vitamins. Only leave on the peel if you have a high performance blender!
This Spiced Mango Smoothie is great if you need a midday pick me up or if your immune system needs a boost because of all the vitamin C! I sometimes even add a tablespoon a Maca Root for all the great extra benefits of Maca Root. I use this kind. Also adding some mint is good for looks! When I don’t drink all the smoothie at once I put the mint in the smoothie and it makes it even spicier!
