I make variations of this carrot smoothie almost every morning. This is my breakfast, but Hubby and the boys have it in addition to their breakfast and they love it. The natural sugars in the fruit allows additional sweetener to be omitted.

This is awesome! I didn't have orange juice so I used some V8 Orange & Pineapple juice. Didn't have fresh ginger but I did add some flax seed. Everything else was as is. It was actually quite good that way and the right amount of sweet with nothing else added! Lisa Thanks for your idea. Read More

I've been trying several smoothie recipes lately but this one is my favorite so far. I did however add half an avocado for creaminess but this one is super delicious! Read More

This recipe is so good! It has a different taste from my regular smoothies. Tastes like I bought it at a smoothie store. This is only the second time I found a healthy recipe that I didn't have to tweak to make it taste better. Also, with most smoothies, you taste one dominant flavor but this was like a flavor explosion in my mouth. First, I tasted orange, then the spicyness from the ginger, then it finished with an ice creamy taste - but none of the flavors were overpowing. I will definitely be making this all the time. Thank you LIsa for sharing. Read More
