Ginger Carrot Smoothie

September 26, 2016 Holy Crap

Here the spicy zing of ginger pairs perfectly with the sweetness of the carrots—proof that what’s good for us also tastes great, as ginger is anti-inflammatory and soothes digestion. Try adding other fresh herbs and spices, such as mint or parsley, to your smoothies to increase their flavour and their nutritional value.

2 servings

½ cup (120 mL) water
¼ cup (60 mL) Skinny B cereal
1 medium banana, frozen
1 cup (250 mL) fresh carrot juice
1 cup (250 mL) plain non-fat Greek yogurt
1 in (2.5 cm) peeled fresh ginger root, chopped
½ cup (120 mL) ice cubes
Wedges of blood orange, for garnish

Pour the water into a bowl, stir in the Skinny B cereal and let sit for 5 minutes.
Place all the ingredients, except the blood orange, in a blender and process until smooth. Pour into glasses, garnish with a wedge of blood orange and serve.
