I am not one for going crazy for juices or smoothies as in general even the homemade ones can contain a significant amount of sugar. However, during this Winter period when you need a little vitamin boost or extra fruit & vegetables portions I will make a smoothie using my NutriBullet.
Carrots also provide lots of vitamin C, D, E and K, and good minerals such as magnesium, potassium and calcium.
Oranges are also high in vitamin C and are great for an immune booster.
Ginger as well all know is great for the immune system too and adds a nice little kick to the smoothie.
Ingredients – makes 1
- 1 orange – juice squeezed
- 2 medium sized carrots
- 1 cm of ginger
- Mint leaves (optional)
- Place all the ingredients in the NutriBullet with a little water and ice (please see image below)
- Blitz away.
- If it appears to be a little bit thick in texture, add extra water.
- Remember this is a smoothie and not a juice, if you want to make a juice then simple strain the ingredients after they have been blitzed or use a juicer!Enjoy
