Carrot smoothies are a delicious and nutritious way to start the day. Carrots provide an abundance of vitamins and minerals like vitamins A, B6, C & K along with magnesium & potassium which make them ideal for a healthy breakfast drink. The addition of yogurt adds protein while the sweetener gives it just enough flavor to make it enjoyable without being overly sweetened. Carrot smoothies can be enjoyed alone or blended with other fruits and vegetables for added nutritional benefits!
An excellent supply of vitamin A, which is necessary for good vision, is carrots. Beta-carotene, an antioxidant that helps prevent cancer and cardiac disease, is also present in them. Carrots also offer nutritional fiber, potassium, and calcium for healthy bones. Include carrot smoothies in your diet to help with digestion, immunity, and inflammation reduction as well as to support the growth of healthy skin and hair. They also taste wonderful!
Carrots, 2 servings
Filtered water, 1 1/2 pints
1 big ripe banana, which has been frozen after being peeled, sliced, and added.
1 cup pineapple, fresh or refrigerated
1 tiny knob of fresh ginger, peeled, makes 1/2 teaspoon.
Ground turmeric, 1/8 teaspoon (or sub cinnamon)
Half a cup of vegetable juice
Lemon juice, 1 Tbsp (15 milliliters from a half-small lemon),
1 cup of coconut milk without sugar
1) To make carrot juice, combine purified water and carrots in a high-speed blender. Puree and smoothen the mixture on high. If it is difficult to blend, add more water and scrape down the edges as necessary.
2) Pour the juice into a mixing basin and cover with a large, thin dish towel. When all of the juice has been extracted, pull up on the towel’s corners and start twisting and squeezing. Save pulp to use in smoothies or baked products. (such as carrot muffins).
3) Pour the carrot juice into a mason container; it will keep for a few days, but it is best when it is still fresh.
4) Add the smoothie components to the blender and process on high until creamy and smooth. If you’re having difficulty blending it, add more carrot juice or almond milk. As necessary, scrape the edges.
5) Adding more fruit or pineapple for sweetness, more lemon for acidity, more ginger for bite, and more turmeric for warmth are all acceptable flavor adjustments.
6) Divide between two glasses (as directed by the original recipe; make adjustments if batch quantity is changed) and serve. Fresh is ideal.
Smoothies made with carrots are a tasty and healthy way to receive your recommended daily intake of vitamins. They taste light and reviving with a sweet, earthy flavour. The mouth-filling mouthfeel is creamy but substantial enough. In order to enhance sweetness and creaminess while retaining the natural flavour of the carrots, other ingredients such as bananas, yoghurt, or almond milk are blended with the carrots. The result is an incredibly flavorful drink that can be enjoyed anytime of day!
