[MUSIC] Hi, InStyle, I'm Jessica Seinfeld. Do you like smoothies? I don't. I don't love making smoothies. I am probably in the minority, but I just am never quite prepared for them. I think they're messy, I never quite have the ingredients on hand. And so what I've done. It simplified them down to three-ingredient smoothies. That's, that's really all I'll make. Yes, you can add spices, yes you can add things if you want, but my smoothies have three ingredients. So today we're going to make what I call my winter elixir. It's. Red pepper. Frozen mango. And fresh orange juice. I love to use fro, frozen fruit because it doesn't matter what season it is. I always have those, that on hand. And it's really easy to work with and much less cleanup. So we're gonna take our washed red pepper and cut it to get rid of the core and the seeds. Seeds. Make sure you don't have any seeds in there. Cut it into quarters and put them in your blender. Throw in your frozen mango and your orange juice. And you know, you also can also do without the orange juice, if you don't want those added calories. Just use water. And we're going to puree it. [NOISE] Okay, here you go. Look how pretty this is. [MUSIC] Mm, smells amazing. I love this one because it's packed with vitamin C. Between the red peppers, the orange juice and the frozen mango, you're loaded here with vitamin C. And I really love using vegetables in my smoothies, because it ensures that they're not loaded with sugar like lots of them are out there in the world. And here are two more three-ingredient smoothies. You can find these and more on [MUSIC]
