Fruit and Carrot Smoothie
Are you wondering about what fun things you can put in your smoothie and have it taste good? Well, here is another recipe that I came up with and really enjoyed, so I thought you guys would like it too. In fact, my kids and hubby even liked it! Which is saying a LOT since my son would tell you that he is scared of carrots 😉 He didn’t even know they were in there!
I added mango, strawberries, banana, and carrots into my Nutri Ninja Auto iQ and I was on my way to delicious-ness.
I added in 5 ice cubes and a few ounces of Coconut Water. I liked the added benefits that Coconut water gives you, but you can obviously use regular water as well.
Here are some of the health benefits of the ingredients in this smoothie:
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.
Mango – The antioxidant in mango has been found to help prevent cancer, mangoes are also thought to help lower cholesterol, improve eye health, and improve digestion.
Strawberries – These red beauties are loaded with vitamins, fiber, and potassium. As an added benefit – they are fat-free 🙂
Bananas – Besides tasting great, they are loaded with potassium which helps muscles recover and relax, and they have also been known to help you sleep better.
You just out everything in and hit a button. Doesn’t get much easier than that, does it?
Go ahead…take a sip 🙂
