Apple Carrot Cucumber Smoothie
You guys know that I love starting my day with a Smoothie. Making a smoothie is the perfect way to fuel my body with the vitamins and nutrients it needs in one quick meal. I have been trying lots of different smoothie recipes lately and I love sharing my favorites! Since apples are one of my favorite fruits, I decided that I should add some apples to in with my carrot cucumber smoothie.
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 carrot cucumber smoothie with apples 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 – Your mother knew what she was talking about when she told you carrots are good for your eyesight because she was right. The beta-carotene in carrots is transformed into vitamin A in your liver, and then travels to your retina and is converted to rhodopsin, which improves night vision. They are also a great source of vitamins A, C, and K.
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 also fat free 🙂
Protein Powder – Helps keep you full longer and makes your smoothie extra creamy.
I have had the Ninja Nutri Auto IQ for a few years now and have absolutely no issues with it. That’s what I use to make all my smoothies, it’s easier to use, small, and I love that it’s a single serve cup so that it easily fits into the dishwasher when I’m done. The less clean up the better!
Don’t you just want to take a sip?
