Health Benefits

Cucumber Carrot Smoothie: Eating more deep-orange-colored fruits and vegetables is associated with a lower risk of coronary heart disease (CHD). In particular, carrots are associated with a 32 percent lower risk of CHD.  Antioxidants in carrots, including beta-carotene, may play a role in cancer prevention.  Also, research has shown that smokers who eat carrots more than once a week have a lower risk of lung cancer, while a beta-carotene-rich diet may also protect against prostate cancer.  Beta carotene is critical for healing any type of wound.  Carrots have even been used as a poultice to help heal wounds for centuries due to their high beta carotene content.

Recipe Notes

Lemon peel and pith have many health benefits so I like to blend whole slices of lemons in my smoothies. If your blender is not strong enough to blend lemon with the peel attached to it then I would use the juice of 1 or 2 lemons (taste to see how many you want to use).
