Simple Carrot Smoothie





I had been feeling a little bit sluggish digestively as I have recently recovered after a nasty stomach flu. I was craving some fresh juice or a smoothie that would not only act as a cleanser but also have antioxidant properties. Peering into my fridge to see what produce I had, I was able to conjure up this delicious smoothie packed full of vitamins such as vitamin A and C and Beta carotene and phytonutrients all great for skin, vision and your insides too! The vibrant colour is seasonal for autumn and definitely helped perk up what had been a grey and dreary afternoon in England.
