Carrot Orange Protein Smoothie


This is the quintessential summer smoothie. It's supercharged with vitamins A and ß-carotene (which converts into vitamin A in the body). As you probably already, know Vitamin A is not only essential for vision, it's THE nutrient for maintaining a healthy skin.
Carrot juice, orange juice and peaches. Three incredible sources of Vitamin A. What do you want more?
But this smoothie doesn't stop there. It's also packed with Vitamin C, potassium and a whole array of antioxidants and nutrients that are super good for you.
Without hesitation, I can say that this is my GF fave smoothie. She always asks me to make one for her before going to the beach. She says that drinking this smoothie it's like putting an extra layer of sunscreen on the skin. Believe.
As usual I like to add a scoop of protein powder, but that's just me and you might as well leave it out.

  2. Ah, I miss my blender. I love smoothies and I always come up with crazy new recipes (I haven't tried that one, though). I think I can't live without a blender any longer. :D
