An anti-inflammatory, immune-boosting smoothie that's perfect for breakfast or a snack.
2 cups carrots 1 1/2 cups filtered water
1 large ripe banana (peeled, sliced and frozen // more for a sweeter smoothie)
1 cup frozen or fresh pineapple
1/2 Tbsp fresh ginger (peeled // 1 small knob yields ~1/2 Tbsp)
1/4 tsp ground turmeric (or sub cinnamon)
1/2 cup carrot juice
1 Tbsp lemon juice (1/2 small lemon yields ~1 Tbsp or 15 ml)
1 cup unsweetened almond milk
Make carrot juice by adding carrots and filtered water to a high speed blender and blending on high until completely pureed and smooth, strain pulp. Transfer carrot juice to a mason jar - will keep for several days, though best when fresh.
Blender add smoothie ingredients and blend on high until creamy and smooth.
Taste and adjust flavors as needed, adding more banana or pineapple for sweetness, lemon for acidity, ginger for bite, and turmeric for warmth.
