Carrots and Orange Smoothie
Carrots are the perfect blend of nutrition and taste, and filled with Vitamin A. Doctors often recommend it to people who are suffering from night blindness, skin problems and also to those who want to lose weight.
Oranges are filled with vitamin C and it is imperative to have them as fresh as possible, as Vitamin C evaporates into the air if cooked for more than a few... minutes, or kept outside for long duration.
1 carrot, chopped into large pieces
1 orange, juiced
1 teaspoon chia seeds
½ cup ice
1/3rd cup fat-free yoghurt
In a food processor or blender, put the carrot, chia seeds and yoghurt in with the ice, and blend for 1-2 minutes, or until they are thoroughly blended together. Add the orange juice, blend for 15 seconds more, and then pour the smoothie into a tall glass. Drink up immediately.
