Lemon Mango Smoothie
What's not to love in a cold smoothie, especially on a warm spring or summer day! Well, you can pucker up for this one with fresh lemon juice, mangos and yogurt. The sour flavor is balanced with honey and then given a gentle kick from the ground ginger. For a little crunch and interest, chia seeds are added.
