Let’s continue this week of cold fighting recipes, shall we?

With this cold busting orange carrot smoothie that’s nourishing, zippy and creamy!

Now, I typically make smoothies with various fruits and greens, but lately I’ve been switching things up with other veggies.

Because we all need some variety in our lives, yes??

And this bad boy? The carrot, orange and mango make it a great source of vitamin A, vitamin C, and beta-carotene (among others), which all help keep your immune system healthy.

AND you get the added little boost from some fresh ginger, which always seems to help whenever I’m feeling a little under the weather.

Plus, it’s pretty darn tasty as well. Bright, fresh and plenty sweet just from the fruit itself!

Tips & Tricks For This Orange Carrot Smoothie

  1. Do not skip the dash of ground cinnamon! Because oh is it fantastic with all the other flavors. It adds the perfect warming wonderfulness. <— Totally not a grammatically correct sentence but we’re going with it.
  2. As with all smoothies, feel free to play around with the ratio of ingredients. In this case, specifically the amount of almond milk and ice cubes. You can adjust to get it to the consistency of your choice.
