“Mom, you’re my BMF,” my son confided as he slid his hand into mine.

“BMF?” I asked, my mind going through the possible abbreviations.

“Best Mom Forever!” he smiled. “Daddy’s my BFF – Best Father Forever,” he continued.

“It’s from a book,” my daughter explained.

My heart got that warm and fuzzy feeling, and as I walked with my best little guy and best big girl to the sandwich shop, the sun warmed our backs. They’ve had the luxury of half days this week; it’s conference week. So, we started off the week enjoying the gorgeous early spring weather by eating lunch out, in the sun, a rarity on a Monday.

Dare I say it? Spring is here! And it feels SO good. The hills are green, the days are warm, and I actually broke out shorts and flip flops the other day.

But speaking of BFF’s, did you know that I discovered a set of BFFs that I never knew existed? Carrots and kiwis, and mangoes, too. They get along really well, actually.

This Carrot Mango and Kiwi Smoothie is my current favorite. I’ve been adding it to my rotation of daily smoothies, and when I sip the vibrant orange smoothie, it is cool, refreshing, and quite tropical. The trio is like the three musketeers, heralding the warm weather ahead of us.

If carrots were to hang out in the tropics, I think I know where to find them. They’d be hanging with the mangoes and the kiwis. Take a sip, I think you’ll like how well they play together!

    BMF! Oh my gosh, your son’s so cute!! How sweet! This smoothie is absolutely stunning. The color is amazing, and it tells me it’s packed with Vitamins and tastes great. Will definitely be trying this one out over the weekend, as I’ve been spying all sorts of mangoes on sale at the grocery store!

    Really good smoothie. I didn’t have carrot juice so I just chucked in two fresh carrots and a load of ice and that worked really well :) Will definitely have it again.

    Just happened to be surfing this morning searching for the benefits of mango, carrots, kiwi smoothie and found this website. I made this smoothie this morning: mango, carrots, kiwi, apple, beets, lime and added coconut water when the smoothie was ready. Yep, added a lot to it. Delicious. I think my daughter would like it. She does not like any juice that is not sweet.

      I have not tried to use chopped carrots, but I don’t see why not! I would try blending the carrots first with a little water to make the juice before adding the other ingredients. If you try it, please let me know how it worked out :)
