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 thehealth benefits of beta carotene.
