Orange Carrot Smoothie

Smoothies are my favorite go-to. They’re delicious, nutritious, and perfect for any time of the day. Full of nutrients from fruits and veggies, plus the addition of fiber and/or protein. This one is no exception, although I was delightfully surprised with the ingredients. I know you’ll love it just as much as I do. Yum!

The inspiration behind this recipe, came as I was trying to come up with a smoothie that was as orange in color, as possible. The idea came to me in my sleep. Ha! I couldn’t wait to get up the next morning to try it. What a delightful surprise. Naturally, I thought of oranges, carrots, mango, and ginger. Blend all the ingredients. Wow!

This has been one of the best smoothies I ever created.

This delightful smoothie mesh up together comfort, creamy, and zest with a tiny kick of spice from ginger. In fact, it’s a great detox, too.

  • Ginger: use to stimulate and support digestion, reduce nausea, upset stomach, reduce constipation, and exercise-induced soreness.
  • Carrots: good source of Vitamin A, fiber, vitamin K1, potassium, and antioxidants

Tip: Try to use fresh ingredients, it does make the smoothie taste incredible.
