carrot ginger smoohtie

At my CSA this morning, I picked up the greatest bunch of carrots.  Two of them were spiraled together, which made made me happy thinking about a tight hug!:)  I decided to make a tangy Carrot Ginger Smoothie as a snack using my carrots. I haven’t always been the biggest ginger fan, and sometimes I am even scared of it.  I know that it pairs well with carrots in many recipes though, so I gave it a try. I am SO glad that I did! The smoothie made me happy too! I think this is such a perfect balance and blend to make just the perfect healthy snack! I think I am really starting to LIKE ginger….

Here’s what you need:

  • 2-3 medium sized carrots
  • about a 3/4″ inch piece of a ginger root, peeled
  • 1/4 coconut water
  • 1/4 cup fresh orange juice
  • 3-4 ice cubes

Here’s what you do:

  1. Blend all ingredients in a blender until smooth!  I use the Ninja Kitchen System blender because it is the BEST one out there!!!!

***Since I don’t always have ginger on hand, or if time is short, I can add 2 drops of Ginger Young Living Essential Oils to this smoothie…. or any smoothie for that matter!  I only use Young Living Essential Oils because they are 100% pure and food-grade. Ginger aids in digestion and stomach support.  You can’t go wrong! 🙂

  1. This sounds delicious. I found you on Whimsy Wednesdays and it was your “carrots in love” that made me click on your image. What a neat find.

  2. We drink lots of kefir smoothies here… and have used carrots many times, but have never put ginger in them. We do eat ginger though… thank you for the thought.
