Mango Carrot Ginger Smoothie

Carrots in smoothies!? Whoa…

It is actually not as bad as it sounds. Carrots have a delicious sweetness to them that pair perfectly with frozen mango and ginger.

I got the inspiration for this smoothie from Honeybee Juice Co. Honeybee does a carrot mango ginger smoothie with fresh pressed carrot, ginger, apple, and lemon juice, and then adds in more ginger root, some frozen mango and banana, and blends everything together.

Well, I don’t have a juicer, so I stuck with whole organic carrots instead.

I was deliberating on what liquid to put in this smoothie. I usually do unsweetened almond milk, but I just didn’t think that would work here…

Coconut water was the next choice. I experimented, and it turned out great!

The ginger gives this smoothie a nice spicy kick. This smoothie is a great way to get energized in the morning, or as a cold treat after a hard workout.
