Carrot Dates Smoothie | Healthy Carrot smoothie

Carrot smoothie is a perfectly healthy option for breakfast or at any time. This is a creamy smoothie with fewer ingredients and with no added extra sugar. Carrots are mainly composed of water and carbs.
The carbs consist of starch and sugars, such as sucrose and glucose.
They are also a relatively good source of fiber, with one medium-sized carrot (61 grams) providing 2 grams. Carrots often rank low on the glycemic index (GI), which is a measure of how quickly foods raise blood sugar after a meal.
Dates are high in natural sugar, so many people think they may not be good for them. However, these sweet fruits are packed with plenty of nutrients, making them an excellent snack in moderation.
The health benefits of carrot and dates are a huge list to mention. This creamy smoothie helps to balance blood sugar and good digestion. Carrots are one of the first baby food and dates are healthy too. Hence it's a kid's special healthy treat as well as the adults.
