We've all seen berry smoothies. Nothing new is happening there. So today's beauty booster smoothie takes that berry favorite and adds some unexpected nutrition: carrots (seriously!) and cantaloupe for water content instead of boring old ice cubes.  Cantaloupe has an insane amount of vitamins A and C which are awesome antioxidants. In fact, carrots are in that same vitamin A boat. If you're looking for a way to sneak veggies into your smoothie, carrots are a good non-green way to make it happen. We all have our boundaries.
