Smoothie Sunday recipe #2

This is the time of year where the most road accidents occur, the days are shorter and it gets dark quite quickly. My sister is a great driver but her night time vision isn't great. I thought it would be a great idea to share this recipe with road drivers in particular. Carrots are high in beta carotene, our bodies process this into vitamin A which is good for eyesight especially night time vision.

 A lot of people consume carrots with their dinner in but in small quantities. This recipe will help to increase your carrot intake, improve your night time vision and possibly save lives! 

I shredded 2 carrots with a julienne peeler and I chopped up 2 apples.Add water, ice and honey to sweeten. 

Don't forget to thoroughly wash your fruit and veg especially if they aren't organic!

Carrots also prevent heart disease and help cleanse the body. Vitamin A assists the liver in flushing out the toxins from the body. It reduces the bile and fat in the liver. The fibres present in carrots help clean out the colon and hasten waste movement. This is why they are so popular in juice cleanses!

Go ahead and share this with a road driver!
