So let’s talk about the ingredients. And there’s not a whole lot to talk about, because there are only three: carrots, peaches, and water. This recipe is gluten-free, vegan, low in fat, and high in fiber. It contains vitamins and antioxidants like vitamin A, vitamin C, and carotenoids. Some studies suggest carotenoids (found in carrots) can help reduce your risk of heart disease and certain types of cancer.
I recommend buying organic peaches … doesn’t matter if they’re frozen or fresh. Peaches are included on the Environmental Working Group’s list of the “Dirty Dozen” most contaminated fruits and veggies. So if you don’t like the idea of eating pesticides and other chemicals, spend a couple more bucks and opt for organic.
