Carrot Ginger Smoothie

/ Uncategorized

I told myself I would make at least one beverage using carrots for this Flavor of the Month, I figured it would be such a beautiful color.  A smoothie seemed like the best (nonalcoholic) way to go. I decided to keep it very simple with no dairy so the carrot could really shine. I realized I am not sure what the strict definition of a “smoothie” is.  In my head it normally includes yogurt, soy milk, or some other creamy element.  Is a drink without those elements still a smoothie?  Oh well, who knows.

Let’s get to it.

In a blender, add the ice, carrots, apple cider, lime juice and ginger.

If you want a drink with more kick (a.k.a. spice), increase the amount of ginger you use. As you all know, I am a big wimp when it comes to spice so this recipe only has a little fresh ginger. Pop the top on and blend until everything is combined and smooth.  Give it a taste.  Add honey if you want more sweetness. You may not need any depending on how sweet your carrots are, so just add a little at a time and blend it in.

I really love all the flavors in this drink.  The carrot really shines and the ginger adds a teensy bit of warmth.  The zesty lime just rounds everything out.
