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.



  • 1 avocado
  • 1 cucumber (peeled)
  • 2 cups of cantaloupe (chunked)
  • 1 cup of frozen mango chunks
  • 2 medium sized carrots (peeled)
  • 1 tbsp of grated ginger
  • 2 tbsps of raw honey


  1. Place all the ingredients in the blender and hit the power button. Blend all the ingredients on high for two minutes.

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.

-Until next time-
