The most eminent types of smoothies are the velvety blended creamy sensations that are also highly nutritional. The health benefits of carrot juice are practically unbounded, featuring several distinct nourishing features that provide much more to your body than the average sugary fruit smoothie.
First off, drinking carrot juice is a great way to cut some calories out of your diet. One cup of carrot juice generally possesses about 80 calories, while the same amount of orange juice can contain upwards to 120 calories. When you get to all the antioxidants that are plentiful in carrot juice, the competition tends to appear obsolete.
Vitamins A, C, D, E, K, B1 and B6 are all prominent nutrients that are fluent in carrot juice. In addition to all of those minerals, one serving of the beverage will provide your body with nearly 20 percent of the daily recommendation for potassium, which can help lower cholesterol, blood pressure and strengthen your bones. A carrot juice smoothie also serves as an amazing appetizer before a meal or workout. Gulping down a glass 20 minutes before having dinner can help stimulate your digestive system. The amounts of soluble fiber that are abundant in carrots ease any complications that arise within digestive organs, thus allowing the body to consume and metabolize food gently and stress free.
You can up the nutritional content of your carrot by adding a few scoops of Symbiotics Colostrum Plus Powder. Colostrum Plus boosts immune factors and may serve as an immune system stabilizer.
First off, you will need all of the following ingredients to provide a little tang to your final product:
- ¼ cup of carrot juice, or 2 chopped carrots
- ½ cup of frozen and chopped mangoes
- ½ cup of frozen and chopped pineapple
- ½ cup of ice
- ½ cup of nonfat plain yogurt
- 2 scoops of Symbiotics Colostrum Plus Powder
Once you have thoroughly chopped up the carrots and fruit, place all the contents into a blender and mix until all the ingredients are fused together for a smooth and creamy concoction. The general estimate of nutrition facts per serving of this smoothie recipe includes:
- 200 calories
- 0 percent total fat
- 0 percent cholesterol
- 750 milligrams of potassium
