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.
