🥭 Ingredient notes
Mangoes - I use frozen mango chunks in this recipe but you could absolutely use a large ripe mango instead.
Raw carrots - You just need one medium carrot or a few baby carrots for this recipe.
Strawberries - For some extra fruity goodness and flavor!
Ginger - This adds some zing to the smoothie. Plus, ginger helps boost your immune system and aids with digestion. And it enhances all the other flavor combinations.
Yogurt - Vanilla yogurt to add flavor and consistency.

3. Add a bit of water and blend again until you reach your desired consistency.
4. Serve and enjoy!
Greek yogurt tends to have a creamier texture than regular yogurt, so feel free to use that instead if you prefer a thicker smoothie.
This smoothie should stay fresh in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to one day.
Yes, they should keep for up to 3 months in an airtight container in the freezer.
A ripe mango should feel slightly soft when you hold it. If you press on it gently, the skin should give a little but not too much. If they're too soft, they're overripe. If they're too hard, they're not yet ripe enough.
