Shortly after I got my Blendtec blender, I was paging through the accompanying cookbook and saw a recipe for carrot juice. How bad could it be, right? It’s just carrots and water.
Guess what it tasted like? Carrots and water. Yeah. Shocking, I know. But not nearly as tasty as I thought it would be.
So it got me thinking, was there a way to drink carrot juice that wasn’t quite so, well, that?
Can you put carrots in a smoothie?
Of course! I use 1 cup frozen carrots in this smoothie, but you can also substitute 1 cup of fresh, shredded carrots.
And then I was also thinking about how sometimes unripened mangos taste like carrots. And so maybe they belong together.
