Ginger Carrot Mango Smoothie

I’ve been battling a head cold and haven’t had much energy for the past few days. So! This morning I wanted to boost my metabolism by adding some ginger to my smoothie. Additionally, the carrot juice provided me with a substantial source of beta carotene which is a precursor to vitamin A – works to maintain a healthy immune system. I also added mango and peach to provide myself with a source of vitamin C to also keep my immune system healthy.
