It’s Monday: Let’s Juice – Orange Power Smoothie

Happy Monday!

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!).

Ingredients

20180114_124851

  • 2 LARGE CARROTS – peeled and chopped (I used my Mish Mash carrot flowers!!)
  • 1 ORANGE – peeled and segmented
  • 1 INCH (2.5 CM) OF FRESH GINGER – sliced (no need to peel – just wash very well)
  • 0.5 TSP OF GROUND TURMERIC
  • 1.5 CUPS OF COCONUT WATER

Blend well (add ice if desired) and serve! Tada!

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!
