Mango Carrot Smoothie: Easy Affordable Raw Food Recipe

  • 2 cups carrots, cut into one inch pieces ($.60)
  • 1 orange, peeled ($.90)
  • 1 cup water (or almond milk), or more for blending

directions

  • Place all ingredients into blender and process until very smooth.

    I just made this using a regular blender and it was so so good. I just added chia seeds and ground flax seed. I love it because I've been eating healthier and I don't feel deprived! Lol

    Do you use a regular blender? Wondering if I should steam the carrots first – of course, then they are not raw…

      You could steam them but you really don't need to. I use a regular blender as well as a VitaMix. The regular blender will take a little longer and maybe not get it quite as smooth, but it's still great … 🙂
