Do you need to revive your body after this long, dry winter? Treat yourself to a delicious smoothie made with orange vegetables and fruits and a bit of ginger. It only has a few ingredients so you’ll be drinking this thick, delectable juice in no time.
Here’s what you’ll need for this smoothie recipe:
- 1 orange
- 1/2 cup carrots
- 1/2 orange bell pepper
- 1/2 sweet potato, cooked
- 1/2 teaspoon ginger powder
Begin by removing the core of the pepper and chopping it into large slices. You’ll only need about half of it, so set the rest aside for dinner.
Place the peppers inside of a blender (or a Magic Bullet, in my case) along with a handful of baby carrots, half of a cooked sweet potato and the ginger. Then slice up your orange and squeeze the juice from each section into the blender. Close it up and blend on medium or high until thoroughly combined.
The resulting smoothie will be thick and delicious, jam packed with all kinds of nutrients and antioxidants. The vitamin C from the orange will help boost your immune system, while the sweet potatoes contain iron, magnesium, vitamin D and of course lots of fiber. Cheers!
