Carrot Ginger Smoothie (Raw)The ingredients in this smoothie not only cause it to be jam-packed with flavor, but they also create a nutrition powerhouse!

Carrots are often thought of as the ultimate health food, jam packed with vitamins A, K, C and calcium (to name a few). They provide protection against heart disease and stroke, while helping you build stronger bones & a healthy nervous system.

Ginger is an herb that is used not only as a spice but also for its therapeutic qualities. It is effective in alleviating gastrointestinal distress, inflammation and intestinal gas. It also possesses beneficial properties with antioxidant effects to decrease inflammation.

Parsley provides carotenoids and packed with a few known anti-cancer and anti-inflammatory phytonutrients and flavonoids (lutein, zeaxanthin, apiole, rutin and apigenin). It is rich with chlorophyll, vitamin A, B, C, and K, folate and iron. It also contains beneficial mineral contents, including calcium, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, potassium, sodium, vanadium, and zinc.

Mangoes are packed with a variety of nutrients, including: vitamin C, vitamin A, folate, vitamin B-6 and vitamin K, potassium, copper, calcium and iron, as well as antioxidants such as zeaxanthin and beta-carotene. Mango has also been shown to decrease the risk of macular degeneration, colon cancer and improve digestion and bone health.

Coconut Water has been dubbed “nature’s sports drink”. It is packed with simple sugars, electrolytes, and minerals to replenish dehydration. It has also been studied to show that its cytokinins have significant anti-ageing, anti-carcinogenic, and anti-thrombotic (anti-clot formation) effects.

Oranges provide 130 percent of your vitamin C needs for the day, 2 percent of vitamin A needs, 6 percent of calcium and 0 percent of iron (for only one orange)!
