Purple Carrot, Melon and Beetroot Smoothie


I love carrots and have recently discovered that carrots come in purple, white, reddish orange and the standard orange colour. They don't really taste that different but certainly look amazing. The purple carrots that I recently got were purple on the outside but orange in the inside. The vibrant colour of my smoothie comes from the purple carrots and the beetroot. Have you ever tried purple or white carrots before?

  23. I like to consume smoothies. and one year I adopted this practice, I'm always innovating; inventing mixtures to see which fits better to my taste, but I never tried to make with beetroot, purple carrot and melon, I will try it but without melon, cause I hate it.
