Carrots are extremely beneficial for your health. Adding them to salads or drinking carrot juice are common practices to gain its health advantages. But trying new recipes with these health-boosting carrots is something I like to do. Making carrot paratha is one way to add carrots to your diet. And the other one is having this delicious carrot smoothie. I was introduced to this smoothie when I was pregnant. It was said to have saffron is good for pregnant mother and the baby. So trying the recipes with saffron was my mission and I landed to this amazing blend of taste and health.
It tastes best if made with the seasonal carrots which are bright red in color rather than the orange ones which we get throughout the year. Now the long, red, sweet carrots have entered the markets so forces me to have this winter delicacy again.
