If one of your resolutions is to eat more veggies, this Carrot, Apple and Turmeric Smoothie is for you. It’s bright, beautiful and full of goodness.
How are your New Year’s resolutions going? I kept mine simple so it’s hard to fail. If your resolution was to eat more veggies, I’ve got a smoothie for you.
Most importantly, it’s not green! Nothing against green smoothies but sometimes we need something different. This Carrot, Apple and Turmeric Smoothie is so beautiful, it will brighten your morning.
Carrots, apples and turmeric go so well together like in this Sheet Pan Chicken with Turmeric or in this Roasted Carrot Turmeric Soup from Love and Lemons. Carrots are full of the antioxidant beta-carotene so you can feel good about starting your day with this. Or you can choose to have it as your afternoon snack. This is not a high protein smoothie so it won’t fill you up. It’s a great way to avoid the munchies in that tough 3:00-5:00 time period.
Here are some other yummy non-green smoothies for your afternoon slump. Trust me all these are better for you than that donut in the office…
- Pink Pomegranate Smoothie
- Dragonfruit Smoothie
- Strawberry Chia Watermelon Smoothie
- Honeydew Kiwi Smoothie
- Strawberry Coconut Smoothie
- Avocado Banana Smoothie
I always have coconut water on hand to toss into smoothies. It’s a great way to thin it out to the perfect consistency while adding electrolytes and potassium.
Oh yeah, and I have a big giveaway coming on Wednesday so stay tuned for your chance to win!
Carrot and Apple Smoothie
- 1 cup coconut water
- 1 bunch carrots 4 or 5, cut into 2 inch pieces
- 1 apple I used Honeycrisp, cut into 4 pieces
- 1/2 tsp turmeric
- 1 tsp honey optional
- 3 cubes ice
Mix all ingredients in a high-powered blender. If the smoothie is too thick add more coconut water. If it's too thin add another cube of ice or another carrot.
