The Healthy Glow Smoothie  



Many people who often lack energy, look dull, worn out and to be honest, very unattractive. Vitamin A in the Carrots are key to giving us healthy looking skin, healthy looking hair and is also important for younger ones as it is essential for bone and teeth growth as well as giving us all a reproductive boost. The Vitamin C protects are bodily cells from free-radicals as well as being great for preventing cancer - something we all need to consider these days. Here's what you will need:

  • Blender [Need one of these?]
  • 2 Medium sized Carrots
  • 1 Large Orange
  • 1 Cup of Orange Juice (Preferably not from concentrate)
  • 1 Cup of Ice

The amount listed should serve one person and allow a little extra for a quick fix later on or if you are just in thirsty for more!

Step 1
The First step is chop the Carrots into thin slices or, if you have more time, grate them. Secondly, peel the skin off the Orange and chop into smallish cubes.

Step 2
Add the Carrots and ice to the Blender with half of the cup of Orange Juice to provide some moisture to the mix. Blend on full power for 1 minute or until the carrot looks liquefied.

Step 3
Add the Orange cubes to the mix with the rest of the orange juice and blend on high power for up to 2 minutes, optionally stopping half way and giving it a shake around.

Step 4
Enjoy your smoothie. Have this smoothie twice a week to aid fat loss and drop a dress size, or just once a week if weight isn't your key goal and you just want to see a glow on the surface! Combine this with 8 glasses of water a day and you will have an envious complexion in no time at all!

NOTE: This Smoothie can be made on the night prior to drinking it to save time. Simply follow these same instructions and place in a Fridge overnight, ready for immediate consumption in the Morning!
