The “Super-Orange” Live Green Smoothie… With Carrot, Orange Sweet Pepper, and Fresh Navel Orange!
This smoothie is knockout gorgeous! I poured it into a tall clear container to keep in the fridge (it didn’t last long…) and drank the rest of it in a tall glass, and just couldn’t believe how radiantly orange it was every time I looked at it. I almost hated to drink it!
Chock-full of beta carotene, antioxidants, and Vitamin C, and refreshingly sweet, this is a great Live Green Smoothie for a hot day! I left the greens out for the photo, to show how beautiful the ingredients are, but add the greens when you can! The color for this one will turn into a light shade of pea-soup, but even that color can start to look appealing when you fall in love with how Live Green Smoothie make you feel!
