Let’s stay on the vitamin A train! This smoothie is naturally sweet and nutritious. It has healthy fat, a ton of fiber and all the makings of late fall, with beautiful beta carotene which helps support your immune system, tamp down inflammation (it is an antioxidant), support vision and promote normal cell development.
