Oranges are high in fiber, vitamins, minerals, and carbohydrates, and low in cholesterol, sodium, and saturated fat, and have a low glycemic load. This means that oranges keep your blood sugar even and prevent those pesky peaks and troughs. Mangoes are also vitamin, mineral, and fiber-rich, and have a flood of life-renewing antioxidants. This smoothie will boost your energy all day long.

Mango Shopping Tip

Buying fruits in season when they are at the peak of their freshness make for great tasting food and can save you money.

Mango Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
