Cayenne pepper and fresh ginger give this avocado smoothie the afternoon pick-me-up you need! The mango adds 25% of your daily value for vitamin C, a powerful antioxidant. You can freeze your own mango cubes, or purchase pre-frozen from your grocery freezer aisle. Add more or less water depending on desired thickness.
