Arugula has a very strong flavor, which relates to its beneficial effects on stimulating the flow of bile from the gall bladder. It’s sharp taste makes it challenging to use in green smoothies but mango offers the necessary sweetness to balance the flavors, while simultaneously providing a generous amount of beta carotene to nourish the liver.
When consumed on a regular basis this simple combination will improve liver and digestive function. I suggest you start with a small amount of arugula and gradually add more if you like. This recipe is best when your mangoes are perfectly ripe, sweet and juicy.
