This vivid orange smoothie is an invigorating breakfast. The carrot makes it a tad savory, but the hint of both orange and ginger round out the overall flavor. Adding a pinch of black pepper helps to bring out the health benefits in turmeric.
1 cup water, or more as needed
1 1/2 cups frozen mango
1 medium carrot, peeled and chopped
1 orange, peeled and separated into wedges
1 1/4-inch piece peeled, fresh ginger
1 tablespoon coconut oil
1 teaspoon ground turmeric
Pinch kosher salt
Pinch freshly ground black pepper
In a blender, combine ingredients and blend until completely smooth. Add more water if needed to reach desired consistency.
Makes 1 (16-ounce) smoothie.
