Instructions

Mango Lime & Mint Dipping Sauce

  • Combine all the ingredients in a blender.
  • For Blendtec: Secure lid. Use the Salsa/Batters button or use manual speed for 30 seconds.
  • For Vitamix: Secure lid. Start on variable speed 1 and increase to variable speed 10/high. Blend for 30 seconds.

Keeps in a sealed container, refrigerated, for up to 1 week.

  • Fill a large bowl with warm water and spread a kitchen towel on your work surface.
  • Working with 1 rice paper wrapper at a time, soak wrapper in warm water just until pliable, about 30 seconds.
  • Place it on the kitchen towel.
  • Divide the julienned fruits and vegetables and the kelp noodles evenly along the center of each wrapper, layering your ingredients as you go.
  • Repeat with most of the cilantro, basil, and mint, reserving some for garnish.
  • Holding the end closest to you with both hands, fold it over the filling.
  • Tuck it under the filling using your fingertips and gently pulling the wrapper taut.
  • Fold in the sides, then tightly roll up the summer roll, squeezing the ingredients to get a tight roll.
  • Place each roll as finished on a damp paper towel and cover with another damp paper towel, to keep them from drying out.
  • Cut each roll in half diagonally and garnish with the remaining herbs.
  • Serve immediately with mango, lime & mint dipping sauce.
  • All done! Enjoy!! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments to enter our weekly photo contest! 🙂 Tag @BlenderBabes & #BlenderBabes

Notes

* If the rice paper tears while you’re wrapping,
just soak another wrapper and wrap it around the
torn one.
** If kelp noodles are hard soak in hot water to soften first

BLENDER BABE RECIPE NOTES 
Unless one has an excellent grocery or access to an Asian market, the rice paper wrappers and the Kelp Noodles can be tough to get. Alternate wraps are now becoming more available in stores. As for the noodles, one can substitute rice noodles, No-Noodles (made from yam), or soak bean thread noodles in hot water until pliable.

HEALTH BENEFITS AND FUN FACTS
Carrots
contain 17 vitamins and minerals and are an excellent source for vitamin A. Given their antioxidant richness, it’s not surprising to find numerous research studies documenting the cardiovascular benefits of carrots. Carrots are high in carotenoids which promote eye health. Lab studies have shown the ability of carrot extracts to inhibit the growth of colon cancer cells.

Best Meal Planning App

Mangoes may very well be the king of all fruits. They fight cancer, alkalize the body, aid in weight loss, regulate diabetes, help digestion and clean your skin. Mangoes are high in vitamin C, vitamin A, vitamin B6, probiotic fiber, copper, potassium and magnesium.

Papayas are high in vitamin c, folate, fiber, vitamin A, magnesium, potassium, copper and pantothenic acid. Papayas protect against heart disease, promote digestive health, have anit-inflammatory effects, provide immune support, protect against macular degeneration and protect against rheumatoid arthritis.
