Healthy Orange and Carrot Smoothie

Healthy Orange and Carrot Smoothie

Most don't really need a recipe for such a simple a smoothie, but take this one here as inspiration. Smoothies are good for you! They are delicious, nutritious, and healthy. And maybe not everybody puts vegetables to the smoothies, but I recommend giving it a try!

For harder veggies in your smoothies to work, you do need a powerful high-speed blender as you want it to be smooth and carrot has quite a bit of texture to it. With a good blender, you will not feel any harder bits in your drink. 

I have always liked carrots and orange together. They work amazingly together stewed (add carrots, olive oil, orange juice, and caraway seeds and stew until soft), in a cake, and also in this smoothie. In addition to looking good and tasting great, this smoothie is also a real bomb of nutrition! Carrots have beta-carotene in them and next to other good things, it also helps to reduce skin inflammation, and of course, everybody knows that carrots are good for eyesight. So get your blender out and get whizzing!
