Peach Carrot Smoothie

I love ordering things online. There's something about waiting a week or two in anticipation, and then felling like a kid at Christmas time when you finally hold that box in your hands. That's exactly what I felt like when my brand new NutriBullet arrived last week. It works waaaay better than my previous blender, and I have gone crazy with blended concoctions. ThisPeach Carrot Smoothie has been one of my favorites so far. With peaches being at their peak right now in Colorado, this smoothie is rich in flavor and provides a punch of antioxidants, vitamin C, aids in digestion, and stimulates detoxification. 

Peach Carrot Smoothie

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Yield: About 2 cups smoothie

Ingredients:

  • 3 medium sized carrots 
  • 1 Peach
  • Juice from 1 lime
  • 1/2 Tbsp. freshly grated ginger. Powdered ginger works as well, but I would start with less (about 1 tsp) and add more as needed.
  • 3/4 cup water, almond milk, or coconut milk.

Instructions:

  • Blend all ingredients in until smooth.

Notes:

Using water as the base makes it more like a fresh juice.Using milk creates more of a smoothie-like texture and "peaches 'n cream" flavor.

I hope you enjoy this sweet, summery smoothie!
