Between the carrot, the ginger and the strawberries, this smoothie is packed with so many health benefits I don’t even know where to begin. Just go make it.
Carrot Strawberry Ginger Smoothie Recipe
Makes 1 large smoothie
half large carrot, chopped or shredded
5 frozen strawberries
1 tsp grated ginger
1 cup coconut milk
1/2 cup water
1 tsp Flax Seed Meal
1/2 – 1 tsp Maca Powder (optional)
8 cashews (optional)
small handful spinach (because why not? you won’t even taste it)
Blend everything together until smooth and serve with a straw.
Notes: the cashews add protein to the smoothie and the maca root has been traditionally used in Peru as a stress-fighting adaptogen, and to increase stamina, boost libido and combat fatigue.
