I’m not a big fan of vegetable smoothies, which is obviously a hang-up I need to overcome. So I am trying to include more vegetable smoothies on smoothieweb.com, and what sweeter vegetable is there to start with than the delicious carrot. Here is a smoothie recipe for a spiced carrot smoothie.
- 1/2 cup apple juice
- 1 cup cooked, chopped carrots
- 1/4 cup applesauce
- 1/4 inch piece of gingerroot, peeled
- 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp salt, or to taste
- 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper, or to taste
Combine apple juice, carrots, applesauce, gingerroot and cinnamon and blend from low to high until creamy smoothie. Season with salt and cayenne pepper to your taste.
