    sorry for the second one, but I wanted to add that ... This smoothie is great with a handful of walnuts. I suppose you could add them to the blender, but on the side is perfect.

    I am having this now as a breakfast drink, but this could easily be a dessert!! I added a banana and used 2 cups of very fresh, organic carrot juice. Otherwise, held true to the recipe. 5 stars and a big ol' DELICIOUS! I will enjoy this the rest of winter and spring and definitely all summer long.

    This smoothie is soooo delicious, but to add a little zip, I throw half of a lemon (peel and all) into the juicer with my carrots to make a cup of juice, carrots and lemon combined, then blend that with frozen mango and nutmeg to make the smoothie. That combo is sensational.

    If your looking for a smoothie to hide carrot juice in, this is not it!! The mango does not hide the carrot flavor at all! I left out the nutmeg and enjoyed it as is, however some orange segments would definitely be a yummy addition!

    I like the combination, though I'd be a bit more specific about nutmeg e.g. 1/2 tsp and I also added cinnamon like 1/4 tsp. For the next time will try to add an orange as well. Only for the sake of experimenting.

    Sorry, this went on the wrong recipe and I can't figure out how to delete...I have not tried this one yet.

    Did not like this at all, only drank half of it. I've never liked grapefruit though.
