Mango, Carrot, and Peach Smoothie

Smoothies are the perfect way to get your needed servings of fruits and vegetables. Not only are they extremely good for you, they are quick and easy, and you can take them on the go.

This smoothie is made of 4 simple ingredients! Frozen mangoes, carrot juice, peach nectar, and ice.

Carrot juice is loaded with all kinds of vitamins! It is extremely good for your eyes, skin, bones, and teeth. Mangoes are high in iron and are also good for the skin and can aid digestion. Peaches are rich in Vitamin C and can also give the skin a healthy complexion. So obviously I have been pretty addicted to this smoothie lately. I bought one of those eco-friendly reusable cups that come with a cover and straw, and take this smoothie to work with me every morning!

If you're turned off by the carrot juice part, you don't need to worry. The frozen mangoes and peach juice sweeten it enough that you barely notice it's there. If your still reluctant to try it, just add some honey to make it even sweeter. I find that it is perfectly sweet and is almost like having an orange julius, just a different flavor!

I have to say, after drinking this smoothie every morning this past week, I have noticed a little glow in my complexion! and I'm pretty excited about it! Try it for a week! I promise you won't turn orange like the man for "Scrubs" who drank too much carrot juice! :) I'm about 95 % sure that won't happen! haha

Mangos! Awesome smoothie. And we can load up on the carrot juice as far as I'm concerned. I'm a little addicted. Here's to a glowing complexion!

This looks so refreshing! I just bought a bag of frozen mangoes from trader joes. I now know what I will be using them in.
