Carrot Breakfast Blast3
Carrots are one of the most popular vegetables in the world and especially around this time of year! They’re packed with nutrition, they’re tasty and are they’re perfect cooked, steamed, baked, or eaten entirely raw. They’re available all year round, but what’s better in the fall than a sweet, orange tuber?
Carrots are very rich in vitamin A, great for vision and the immune and reproductive systems. With this crunchy, orange powerfood, you get 204 percent of your daily dose of vitamin A, plus a dose of vitamins C, B3, B6, E and K. They’re also great for skin health and are low in calories.
But you know the best way to enjoy a good carrot this season? In your next NutriBlast! The delicate flavor compliments almost any fruit or veggie. Despite the hard fibrous texture, carrots extract nicely in the NutriBullet.
Here’s one of my favorite carrot Blasts – now you have no excuse for not eating your carrots!
- 1 medium carrot with skin washed and chunked
- ½ cup frozen pineapple
- ½ cup of frozen mango
- large handful of spinach or other leafy greens
- 1 cup of non-fat plain Greek yogurt
- coconut water to the max line
- Add all ingredients to the tall NutriBullet cup and extract until smooth.
For variety, try adding other fruits and leafy greens with carrots. An orange-lemon-lime combination is a good mixture, too. The possibilities are endless!
A side note: the average American eats 12 pounds of carrots a year. That’s about one cup per week. That figure can easily be doubled with the addition of a carrot NutriBlast!
