If you have been following my blog for sometime now, you know that I have two super active kids and ever since we moved here to Qatar, I have forgotten the last time I sat and peacefully finished my breakfast. It’s always two on one and I’m always in a hurry. And I’m sure there are many moms out there who just skip their breakfast like I do most of the time (yes do I!).
This quick smoothie recipe is what I discovered a couple of days ago and trust me this keeps me sane and sound for at least a couple of hours. Plus it’s super easy to make and healthy to have. The Little Thing enjoys it as much as I do.
We have all grown up with the knowledge that carrots are good for your eyesight. They are famously rich in beta carotene, which the body processes into vitamin A. Carrots also pack a well-rounded nutritional punch including vitamins C, B3, B6, E and K as well as minerals such as iron, magnesium, phosphorus, calcium, molybdenum and potassium. They are also a great source of dietary fiber.
And apples are probably one of the healthiest fruits on the planet. They are rich in fiber and vitamin C. Plus they are also low in calories, have only a trace of sodium, and absolutely no fat or cholesterol. So if you are trying to shed some kilos and still remain healthy. This is the tastiest and simplest way.
So here’s the recipe for you.
- 1/2 cup sliced carrots
- 1/2 Apple sliced
- 1/2 cup Mango Juice
- 2 tablespoons Milk
- I cut apples and carrots into small pieces and freeze them overnight before using them.
- Blend apples and carrots with mango juice.
- Add milk and blend until it’s creamy and lump-free. That’s it.
The reason I don’t add everything together and blend is because I want a creamy smoothie not a thin one. I keep adding juice gradually until the deserved consistency is achieved. Serve it chilled.
