Good Eats

Good Eats – Vitamin boosting smoothie

Here is another smoothie recipe. Since Victor left to Chicago, I haven’t really been cooking much, it is difficult to cook for one person. I used to think that cooking for two people is hard, I guess I don’t think its true anymore. I might not cook as much before but I still need to eat. These days oatmeal is definitely my best friend. Since I am only having oatmeal on a daily basis, I try to think of ways to incorporate fruits and vegetables into my diet.

One morning, while sipping on my coffee, I decided to look through the fridge and found a bunch of fruits and vegetables. I decided to blend them all and just go with it. At that moment, I had no idea if the smoothie is going to taste good. I just know what if I never try I will never know.

Carrots are notably rich in antioxidants, vitamins and dietary fiber. They contain a lot of beta-carotene and vitamin-A. Beta-carotene is one of the antioxidants that protect the human body from free radicals. Vitamin-A is needed by the human body to maintain good vision. I am sure all of us know about the benefit of having avocados – the good fats. Avocados contain heart healthy monounsaturated fat, and they have a smooth and creamy texture. Cantaloupes on the other hand contain both vitamin C and A. Alright, lets jump into the recipe, hopefully I was able to convince some of you to give this recipe a try.

Don’t we all just love a recipe that is so quick and easy, and of course it has to be delicious too. Believe me, the avocado seems a little out of place in the recipe, but it makes the smoothie real creamy. It makes a huge different, if you guys give this recipe a try, leave me a comment below, I would love to hear what you guys think about this.
