Carrot Mango Smoothie For Radiant Skin

December 30, 2016
Carrot Mango Smoothie for radiant skin

You know those days when you don’t feel like having a big breakfast. A smoothie is an excellent choice for those days. Light, full of vitamins and a great way to get your daily serving of fruits and veggies.

This carrot mango smoothie has been one of my favorites lately. It’s packed with beta-carotin which is an antioxidant, good for your skin and eyes. It also has lots of potassium, magnesium, and fiber. So really, really good stuff for you.

I’m obsessed with ginger and if I’m making this smoothie for myself, I will add more than 1 tsp of ginger. But many people don’t like the sharp spicy flavor as much. Try the recipe as it is with 1 tsp of ginger and if you want a bit stronger taste, add 1 more the next time you’re making it.

Also, if you like yours super cold, you can add a few cubes of ice. I prefer using frozen fruit instead, and that makes it cold enough for my taste. Besides, it’s not too watery, I like to taste the texture in my smoothie.

    Do you know how rare it is for me to find smoothie recipes that don’t contain anything I’m allergic to?! Seriously, when you’re allergic to pineapple, apples, avocados, oats, and soy, it’s nearly impossible! This is the most exciting day ever haha. I’m seriously saving this right now on Pinterest and making it as soon as I can. It sounds delicious!
