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 cup cooked, chopped carrots
1/4 cup applesauce
1/4 inch piece of gingerroot, peeled
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon

1/8 tsp cayenne pepper, or to taste

    Why did you cook the carrots?

      You don’t have to cook the carrots, it just makes for a creamier texture for the carrot smoothie.

    This has become one of my favourites! I didn’t cook the carrots, and I used a small raw apple plus apple juice instead of apple sauce. It was super sweet, so I added a kale leaf for some extra substance. Thanks for the recipe!

    So I make a lot of fruit smoothies but I am wanting to try to eat more veggies and get my waist back down, I have not made veggies smoothies and need to know do I cook the veggies such as carrots,tomatoes,broccoli,or spinach?

      I know that I do both, but usually the recipe will call for cooked or raw. Raw keeps more nutrients so normally I would stick with raw vegetables unless the recipe called for cooking.

    Thanks tried one today with raw broccoli but couldn’t finish it taste was to broccoli like and couldn’t stand the texture. I know that most vitamins are water soluble and go away if boiled, so I bought a steamer so they retain the vitamins. Will try tomorrow.
