Carrots are one of my favorite vegetables and probably one of the reasons why I still have 20/20 vision coming from a family where almost everyone wears glasses.
Calories: This recipe makes around 3-5 servings and is between 50-100 calories depending on the pour or cup size.
Ingredients: 2 large carrots, 1 large yellow pepper, 5 large seedless unsweetened dried prunes, 3-4 cups of spinach, 5 thin slices of ginger and 2 to 3 cups of water. All raw foods!
Blending: Just throw everything in the blender. I would start with 2 cups of water and decide after you blend, if you want to add more water. Once you see that all the big junks are gone, it is up to you to decided how smooth of texture you want.
Drinking: Normally when you juice you should consume the smoothie immediately. I do not recommend letting your smoothie sit for hours without consumption. Try to organize it that you can finish it before lunch or at lunch. If you find you need it to be a little sweeter, you can add organic honey. Remember, honey is about 20 grams of sugar per serving.
If you like the recipe, let me know. If you add something different that might be good for me to try too, I would love to hear about it.
