    Limey Orange Smoothie

    Here’s a smoothie that even Bugs Bunny would go crazy for. This fetching bright orange drink blends a winning combo of sweet veggies and fruit, creamy cashew butter, tangy yogurt, and lime zest into a nutrient-packed smoothie that doesn’t hold back on flavour. Bonus: both orange bell pepper and carrot contain a surfeit of beta carotene, an antioxidant that is converted to vitamin A in the body and functions to improve bone, eye, and immune health.
