It seems that everyone everywhere is under the weather! Coughing, sneezing….you know, all the works! Do your body good today and try the Orange Power Smoothie!
Today’s recipe will help you get rid of all those little bugs quicker (or prevent them from coming near you altogether!).
- 2 large carrots – peeled and chopped
- 1 orange – peeled and segmented
- 1 inch (2.5 cm) fresh ginger – sliced (no need to peel – just wash very well)
- 0.5 tsp ground turmeric
- 1.5 cups coconut water
- Blend well
- Add ice if desired
- Serve and enjoy!
Turmeric is best absorbed with black pepper. If you like a bit of spice in your drink, I suggest garnishing your smoothie with some black pepper, and off you go!
The amazing ingredients in this beautiful drink will provide antioxidants, anti-inflammatories, excellent source of Vitamins A and C and a good source of Vitamins K and B, potassium, calcium and folate.
One smoothie will:
- aid to boost your immunity
- aid to boost your energy
- fight infections
- fight free radicals
- help with digestion
