Strawberry Sunrise Smoothie

Summer is coming up before you know it, so make sure you’re ready to soak up the sun with this refreshing yet healthy smoothie. It’s packed full of vitamins and minerals that can help snap you out of the winter blues and into the summer hues…awkward rhyme. Carrots are chock full of beta carotene and later converted to vitamin A, proven to help prevent cancer causing free-radicals. So if you plan to stay in the sun and work hard (aka work on your tan) then boost your beta carotene uptake this summer! The pineapple helps fight inflammation with its awesome bromelain, and strawberries are packed with even more antioxidants. So put it all together in your NutriBullet or blender and get this party started.

Ingredients:
6 oz fresh carrot juice (via juicer or store-bought)
1/2 cup fresh or frozen pineapple
1/2 cup fresh or frozen strawberries
1/4″ to 1/2″ slice of fresh ginger

Directions:
Place all remaining items into NutriBullet  or blender and process until smooth using Mixing Blade. (vegan/vegetarian/paleo/gluten-free friendly!) Makes approx 16oz serving size, approx 200-300 calories. Enjoy!
