A smoothie might seem a strange choice for this cold season. But bear with me! December is a very busy month for most people and smoothies can be prepared in minutes. And in the lead up to Christmas when there are a lot of rich foods around, your body will thank you for replacing a sandwich and mince pie with something lighter to digest.
Mangos are packed with antioxidant vitamins –providing more than a day’s dose of vitamin C and two thirds of your recommended daily vitamin A intake. Ginger is a common remedy for colds and an anti-inflammatory food, which is definitely worth introducing if you have any arthritic symptoms.

Peel the mango using a vegetable peeler and cut it’s flesh off the stone. Peel the ginger and scoop the kiwi flesh out of its skin.
