This vibrant, vitamin C-rich, carrot-orange smoothie is refreshing and loaded with vitamins and minerals. The recipe was inspired by my favorite carrot-orange juice I get from a local shop. I love the combination with fresh ginger, so this is my smoothie version with some adjustments.
The frozen pineapple adds sweetness and helps to make the smoothie cold without ice. The frozen banana makes the smoothie creamier and binds everything together. The orange adds even more sweetness. The lemon juice is optional but adds a nice brightness. The ginger adds a little spiciness, it’s more of a pop flavor that hits the back of the throat and it has an almost warming quality to it.
I love the spice of ginger, but if you're not as big of a fan use just 1 inch instead, or if you're a bigger fan then use more. Peel the ginger, then either grate with a Microplane or dice the ginger piece before adding it to the blender.
This carrot-orange smoothie recipe with ginger is easy to put together and only takes about 10 minutes. As an added bonus, it’s super delicious and full of vitamins and minerals.
