Sunshine Smoothie

Source: 

Susan B. -- inspired by a recipe in the NYT

A refreshing citrus-mango-banana smoothie with a bit of ginger. Outstanding!

Ingredients: 

4 g 4 grams orange peel (about 1 tablespoon)
1 navel orange, peeled and cut up
240 ml1 cup frozen mango, roughly chopped
1 frozen banana, small to medium, sliced
240 ml1 cup orange juice—fresh recommended
4-5 grams ginger root (about a ½-inch piece), peeled
15 ml1 tablespoon lemon juice
Fresh mint--3-4 large leaves or 5-6 small leaves

Instructions: 

Before you cut up the orange, use a vegetable peeler to remove just the orange layer (avoiding the white pith) from the fruit and measure 4 grams or about 1 tablespoon.
Add the peel and the other ingredients to your blender container and process till smooth.

You could garnish with a mint leaf. 🌱
