Chef V’s tip: Mangos contain tartaric acid, malic acid, and a trace of citric acid, which help maintain the alkaline balance of our bodies. Use my Tropical Green Drink as the base for this recipe for a cool, refreshing smoothie.
For a variation on this recipe, add fresh ginger, fresh turmeric, and vanilla pea protein powder.
