Have you ever put carrots and mangoes together? How about putting carrots and mangoes together in a smoothie?
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!!
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.
- 2-3 carrots
- 1 mango
- 2 bananas
- 1 cup almond milk or water (you may want to add more liquid if the consistency is too thick)
- Blend all ingredients until thoroughly blended.
- Serve immediately.
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!
