Rise and Shine Smoothie

The bright flavors of citrus, mango and ginger shine in this sunny orange smoothie. If you’re short on time, don’t worry about peeling the fresh ginger: just rinse it well and run it crosswise through a fine grater.


  • 1 ripe mango
  • 3/4 to 1 cup fresh orange juice
  • 1/2 cup vanilla nonfat yogurt
  • 1/2 tsp. grated fresh ginger
  • 1 Tbs. honey
  • 1 Tbs. fresh lime juice


Hold the mango upright on a cutting board. Using a sharp chef’s knife, make downward cuts along each flat side of the pit to it separate from the flesh. Alternatively, use a mango pitter. Remove the skin with a vegetable peeler and cut the flesh into chunks.

In a blender, whirl the mango, 3/4 cup of the orange juice, the yogurt, ginger, honey and lime juice until smooth. Add up to 1/4 cup more orange juice as needed to reach the desired consistency.

Pour the smoothie into 2 glasses and serve immediately, or transfer to insulated beverage containers and take to go. Serves 2.
