Apple Carrot Cucumber Smoothie
You guys know that I love starting my day with a Smoothie. It is the perfect way to fuel my body with the vitamins and nutrients it needs. I have been trying lots of different recipes lately and I love sharing my favorites! Since apples are one of my favorite fruits, and Crunch Pak makes the best tasting apples, it seemed only natural that they are in my smoothies.
I love that Crunch Pak Apples come ready to go! Literally all I have to do is open the bag, grab a handful and within seconds I am that much closer to drinking my smoothie. No need to wash or slice! Plus, they stay so fresh in the bag…I don’t know how they do it, but Crunch Pak apples are always so crisp and juicy whenever I bag a few from the bag. They never disappoint 🙂
In this smoothie I layered the carrots, cucumbers, strawberries, then my wonderful apples. The apples are sweet, ORGANIC, and delicious.
Here are some of the health benefits of the ingredients I selected for this smoothie recipe:
Apples – They are extremely high in antioxidants, fiber and flavanoids. An apple a day keeps the doctor away, so why not start adding them to your smoothies?
Carrots – The orange powerfood will give you vitamin A and is also linked to preventing cancer, giving you healthier looking skin and aids in digestion.
Cucumbers – These are great for rehydration. Cucumbers are also a great source of vitamin B, so that means they are a natural pick-me-up.
Strawberries – These red beauties are loaded with vitamins, fiber, and potassium. As an added benefit – they are fat-free 🙂
Protein Powder – Helps keep you full longer and makes your smoothie extra creamy.
Don’t you just want to take a sip?
