Mango Carrot Smoothie

  2 rater(s)

Is it weird to put carrots in a smoothie? No, absolutely not. Classically, people like to incorporate carrots into various juice blends, as they produce a lot of juice. The classic combination is carrots, apples, and beets, which is one of the best detox juice concoctions. Carrots offer a unique sweetness, so they pair well with other ingredients. For this recipe, we take a trip to the tropics by incorporating mango and banana, so you don’t have to worry about a prominent carrot flavor.

Interestingly enough, mangos that are slightly unripe have a similar flavor to carrots. Is that why mangos are in this recipe? No, mangos are simply delicious and we want to enjoy them every chance we can. The banana complements the inherent sweetness of both the mango and carrots, and the freshly squeezed orange juice brightens up the party with a citrusy flare. Orange juice is the liquid ingredient for this recipe. No need for homemade almond milk or filtered water! For maximum sweetness, choose Cara Cara oranges for juicing. You can thank us later because the juice will change your life.

Another interesting and flavorful option is to juice blood oranges, but that will provide a slightly more citrus-forward flavor in your smoothie. Last but not least, peel and chop the carrots and then freeze them overnight. If you don’t want to freeze the carrots, you can peel, slice, and freeze the banana overnight. Whichever method you choose, you will have a tasty, nutrient-dense smoothie.
