Orange Carrot Ginger Smoothie
This nutrient-rich Orange Ginger Carrot Smoothie is a simple and nutritious option when you need a refreshing boost. It offers natural sweetness, abundant vitamins, and an extra kick from turmeric and cinnamon powders. With the addition of raw ginger, it provides a delightful zing.

- 1 slice of fresh ginger, peeled (about 3-4g)

- Add the orange wedges, chopped carrot, ginger, tur, cinnamon, and water in a blender cup. Blend the ingredients until you achieve a smooth consistency.
- Finally, serve the mixture immediately; if desired, sprinkle extra cinnamon powder.

Most carrot smoothie recipes require a juicer, but this one shows how to blend carrots without one. Boiling them lightly softens the carrots for more effortless blending. Although burning may slightly reduce fiber, it can enhance the health benefits of certain foods like carrots.
Combining carrots with strawberries provides ample vitamins C and A, essential antioxidants. Ginger adds a refreshing taste and anti-inflammatory properties. One glass of this juice fulfills two servings of recommended daily fruits and veggies and vitamin A and C needs, all with just 74 calories.
