Summer is the time to enjoy Mangoes! Here are some of our favourite mango recipes.
Carrot, Apple and Orange Smoothie
A delicious smoothie of carrot, apple and orange blended in water was a surprise for me.
Surprised as my thought was always that a smoothie is made with milk.
It was then I learnt that a can be made from raw fruit or vegetable with water, dairy and ice. You may add sweeteners of your choice.
I think that a smoothie is healthier than a juice. A smoothie contains dietary fibre and since it is thicker than a juice so it is more filling. Green smoothies are considered a healthier alternative but I will shy off the commercially made smoothies.
People who swear by smoothies consider that the body needs the vitamins, minerals and enzymes that raw food contains. Not getting enough of these will leave you malnourished by the lack of nutrients and smoothies fill in the gap.
But personally, as long as I have functional teeth I will prefer to chew and eat my fruits and vegetables. I love the crunch and the flavours of a fresh fruit or vegetables an occasional smoothie or juice is fine with me.
The burst of flavours that this smoothie gave I think I will make it yet again. Looks like I am converted to a smoothie lover!!

Carrot, apple and orange smoothie sounds really delicious. I often make orange and apple smoothie so may add carrots to it next time.
Thanks, Mina. 😀
The carrot orange apple combination has been my favorite as a juice. Why didn't the combination click for a smoothie as well. The carrots will give a nice texture for the smoothie. Nice post!
