I usually don’t add starchy vegetables, such as carrots, to my smoothies. And I rarely make smoothies that don’t contain any greens (green smoothies are my favorites!).
This carrot-ginger smoothie recipe is one of the few exceptions, and it’s delicious!
It combines carrots and oranges – for outrageous, bright orange color (a nice change from the green-colored smoothies), with apple and ginger – for tangy flavor.

Orange Carrot Smoothie Recipe With Ginger
- 2 oranges, peeled
- 2 large, organic carrots, chopped
- 1 apple
- ½ to 1 inch ginger to taste
- 1/2 cup chilled water
You may want to squeeze the oranges and just use the juice – the consistency will be less thick. I just use the oranges whole and add some water. This smoothie is great chilled, so you may want to toss in some ice.
Blend in your blender on high until smooth!
