Recipe by Lindsey Johnson
1 cup chilled coconut water
1 cup frozen organic strawberries
1 cup frozen organic mango
1 cup organic baby carrots
1 navel orange, peeled & seeds removed
Combine all of the ingredients in a powerful blender, and enjoy!
*If using fresh strawberry or mango, add a little ice to make the smoothie cold
*Leave as much of the pith of the orange on... it is there for a reason and actually very good for you!
When I came across this smoothie recipe I couldn't wait to try it. I love smoothies, but every time I try and find a good recipe, I feel like there are all of these different protein powders or ingredients that I just don't have lying around. Love them, but those are the ones I'm going to buy. All of a sudden my convenient and easy snack is a pain in the butt. I love that most of the produce is frozen, the only other ingredient is coconut water, and the color of it is gorgeous. And it tastes AMAZING.
Now for the things to feel good about: this smoothie is packed with Vitamin C from the mango, strawberries, and oranges, which is an incredible antioxidant that also helps make collagen. Carrots are huge anti-agers from the beta-carotene that our bodies convert to retinoids, and coconut water is one of the best ways to naturally rehydrate with a little extra kick of potassium and magnesium. It also tastes like sorbet.
