Carrot, Apple and Ginger Smoothie - Serves 1
1 small carrot, approx 70g, 2.5oz
150ml apple juice
1 tsp ginger
Grate the carrot and apple (use the skin but not the core). Blend the grated fruit and vegetables with the ginger and serve.
Apples are a great source of vitamins and minerals like vitamin C.
Carrots are a fantastic source of vitamin A and ginger is thought to have several health properties including on the gastrointestinal system and for colds. A great way to keep seasonal ailments at bay and, even in January, you can find most of the ingredients of this lovely smoothie in your supermarket without masses of food miles. A great way to wake up with a smoothie.
