Rain, glorious rain!! We have been blessed with a day and night of much-needed rain here in Knysna, but this morning I wished for the warm rays of the sun. If sunshine had a taste, I reckon it would taste like this Sunshine-In-My-Pocket Smoothie. Yes, it is that good! Packed with the radiant nutrients of orange fruit and vegetables, this smoothie is a powerhouse of beta-carotene, zeaxanthin, vitamin A & C and Omegas to boost the immune system and improve eyesight with the added bonus of radiant skin and healthy hair. Give this recipe a try!
Sunshine-In-My-Pocket Smoothie Recipe
4 large carrots
1 knob fresh ginger
A handful of Cape gooseberries
1/2 cup cashews
1 tablespoon golden flaxseed (or brown flaxseeds)
2 scoops Phytopro Thrive Protein powder
Ice as desired
Juice carrots, peeled lemon, oranges and ginger in a juicer. Add the fresh juice to a blender with the rest of the ingredients and blend until smooth.
NOTE: If you don’t have a juicer, reduce the amount of carrots to 2 and blend all ingredients until smooth. Add water if it is too thick. Enjoy!
