Orange-hued fruits and vegetables have high amounts of beta carotene, and this smoothie has three of them (carrots, nectarine, and an orange). This means that not only does this blend have a high dose of vitamin C per serving (71 percent of your daily recommended amount, to be exact), but an extremely high amount of skin-loving beta carotene per serving. If you’re looking for a smoothie that helps you look as good as it helps you feel, this is the breakfast for you!
