Mango Carrot Smoothies

It’s a brand new year!

Steve and I are a few weeks into our New Year’s resolutions and I’m happy to say that this might be the first year that they actually stick! I think I’ve figured out the secret…

keep it manageable!

Previous years my resolutions would be really huge and really general:

Eat healthier.

Exercise more.

Be more efficient at work.

They were just to ambiguous to really stick. So this year, I picked a few specific things that I wanted to work on:

Eat breakfast every day

Incorporate more veggies with meals

Clear out my email inbox

……so far, so good!!

Smoothies have been a lifesaver for resolutions #1 and #2. Since I’m not typically a breakfast eater, it’s so much easier to just throw one of these in a to go cup and drink it through the morning! And we’ve been having a blast coming up with different yummy combinations!

So far, these are one of our favorites!

Mango Carrot Smoothies

1 mango, cubed (if you want, you can freeze them ahead of time and just blend them frozen)

1 cup carrot juice

dash of nutmeg

1/2 cup ice cups (you don’t need these if you’re using frozen mango chunks)

Place all the ingredients into a blender and pulse until smooth.
