Carrot Mango Smoothie

Have you ever put carrots and mangoes together?  How about putting carrots and mangoes together in a smoothie?

Carrot Mango Smoothie, V

Since we got the Vitamix in January, we have bought a two 25 pound bag of carrots.  The first bag was much easier to go through then the one we have now.  Carrots are a great vegetable, but now that we aren’t buying them in baby carrot form, I am putting them less on salads, so I need to get on it, especially since we don’t have room to refrigerate them so they are in our garage and it’s summer. I don’t want a whole bunch of rotting carrots!!

Carrot Mango Smoothie I figured I need to add carrots way more to smoothies, too.  They really don’t change the flavor of smoothies, either, so they are a super easy addition.

It’s fun once in a while to make smoothies solely based on color.  Bananas blend well with all fruit and vegetable combinations and add the sweetness and creaminess I desire.  I was going orange with an orange theme today.

The Verdict:

This was a nice thick, tasty, and sweet smoothie.  The smoothie has such a great fresh taste.  I loved how creamy the texture becomes in the Vitamix. If you want it a little thinner, you could add more liquid.

We have made the carrot mango smoothie with both almond milk and water.  I don’t know if I have a preference, as they are both great!

    Way to go, Sonja! Juicing those carrots, like juicing any vegetable, sends all those vitamins, calcium, protein, and nutrients straight to your cells so they can get fed without your digestive system slogging through all the fiber! Hooray! I bet you felt great after drinking that! Since you have so many carrots, you should juice them every day!

    This was soooooo good. I used homemade coconut milk and only one banana (what I had) and added a few pinches of cinnamon. I could drink this every day. You’re right…it’s so creamy. And it’s filling. This was my dinner! Thanks for the great recipe!
