Ingredients

Carrots can be difficult to blend, especially if you have a blender that is not super powerful. You may find it’s easier to cook the carrots for a few minutes before blending as this will make them a bit softer and easier to blend.

Alternatively, you can also add some extra water to make the smoothie less pulpy.

 

Carrot and Spinach Green Smoothie

 
  • 6 Carrots
  • 2 Apples (with seeds, optional)
  • 1 Small piece of ginger root
  • 50 Grams of spinach
  • 1 Banana
  • Half glass of orange juice (or 1 fresh orange)
  • Water + ice cubes

Verdict

As mentioned, carrots are not the easiest of ingredients to blend, so make sure you add enough liquids.

For this green smoothie I have added orange juice and also one banana to give it a bit more of a fruity taste.

I also added spinach as a main ingredient. Not only to honor the word green in green smoothie, but also because it gives this smoothie a better balance.

It works well with the carrots and ginger that both have a very dominant taste.

Depending on your diet and taste preferences, spinach can easily be replaced with kale or any other green vegetable you may prefer.

Overall this carrot spinach smoothie recipe is absolutely delicious and will provide you with a great amount of nutrients in one go.
