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.
3/4 cup (180 mL) water
1/2 cup (125 mL) plain Greek, Skyr, or coconut-based yogurt
1/2 cup (125 mL) chopped carrot
1/2 cup (125 mL) chopped orange bell pepper
1 tsp (5 mL) honey
1 Tbsp (15 mL) cashew butter
1 tsp (5 mL) lime zest
1/4 tsp (1 mL) allspice
1 cup (250 mL) frozen mango cubes
Into high-speed blender container, place all ingredients in the order listed. Blend until smooth. For a fancy presentation, pour into a large champagne goblet rimmed with coconut and lime zest.
