This breakfast alternative starts with carrot juice, a valuable source of beta carotene, which many juicing enthusiasts believe is best absorbed on an empty stomach. Frozen mango lends the smoothie its sweetness and smooth texture while adding vitamins B6, C, and E. Pair the smoothie with a hard-boiled egg or a handful of nuts for protein, and you've got a balanced meal to go.Tip: You can usually find fresh carrot juice in your grocer's produce section. Look for mango chunks in the freezer section of natural-foods stores -- or cut up and freeze your own fresh mango. Read more about the health benefits of beta carotene.

    I had some baby carrots that needed to be used, so I juiced them myself and proceeded with the recipe that followed. I ended up adding about a 1/2 tsp of Agave Nectar to sweeten it up a bit.

    I would agree with nature_diva. Try using unfrozen mango chunks so that it's more of a juice than a smoothie. I used frozen mango and it just makes it to thick to drink from the cup. I tried a straw but is too difficult to suck up.

    I just served this to my husband with a fresh Citrus Poppyseed loaf and grapefruit. The entire breakfast was a hit. I used fresh, unfrozen mango, which made this more like a juice than a smoothie, it was still great. This was an instant favourite. We love our new Orange Breakfast!

    I just made this for the first time for my husband and I to share over a fresh Citrus Poppyseed loaf and grapefruit. I used fresh mango and it turned out great, it was more like a juice than a smoothie because of this, but this became an instant fav just the same. We now call that breakfast: Orange Breakfast!
