Carrot-Ginger-Orange Smoothie Recipe

A Clean Start to Your Day: Carrot-Ginger-Orange Smoothie

The warm weather means we can't get enough of smoothies, and there's nothing like a cooling drink filled with the nutrients you need to get through the day. Here's another recipe to add to your list: the carrot-ginger-orange-spinach detoxifying smoothie.

This is a great smoothie to have in the morning since it's "very liquid based (compared to many others)," says Heather Scott, owner of San Francisco catering company Purple Plant Smoothies. "Liquids are easiest to digest in the morning hours. Carrots are a great detox agent, given the high levels of the powerful antioxidant beta-carotene. This converts to vitamin A in the body, which helps the immune system function properly."

Read on for the recipe!

This recipe requires carrot juice, but if you don't have a juicer, you can buy prepared carrot juice. The taste is simple, clean, and slightly earthy with the addition of spinach (I used about a cup of baby spinach, but you can add less if you want it sweeter).

I have to stay away from citrus fruits. Can I make this without the orange or with a banana in it's place? Anyone know?
