Servings : 2 serves
Prep Time 10 minutes
Total Time 10 minutes


  • 1 carrot, washed, peeled, and chopped into about 5 pieces
  • 1 banana, peeled and chopped
  • 1 whole clementine, peeled, segmented
  • 1 inch knob fresh ginger, peeled and grated
  • 6 to 8 ounces freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • ¼ tsp turmeric powder
  • tsp ground cinnamon
  • cup plain yogurt
  • 1 cup ice
  • sweetener, optional


  • Add all ingredients to a high-powered blender in the order listed (sweetener is optional); process until completely blended.
  • Taste for sweetness and adjust accordingly.
  • Pour the smoothie into a glass and enjoy!


  • If using a sweetener, I recommend using honey because honey’s antioxidant and antibacterial properties help improve the digestive system and boost immunity. If using honey, blend it with the rest of the ingredients.
  • If you’re looking for a thicker smoothie, blend in more ice to make it thicker. 
  • High-Speed Blender: If you're serious about smoothies, consider investing in a high-speed blender. They can handle tougher ingredients like nuts and frozen fruit much more effectively than standard blenders.
  • Taste as You Go: Before you pour out your smoothie, give it a taste. Need a little more sweetness? A touch more liquid? Adjust until it's just right.
  • Frozen Fruit or Vegetables for Thickness: Using frozen fruit instead of fresh can give your smoothie a thicker, more ice-cream-like texture. Plus, it keeps the smoothie cold without diluting it as ice would.
  • Clean Immediately: Smoothie ingredients can stick and harden quickly. It's much easier to rinse out your blender and wash it right after using it.
  • Storage: Pour the leftover smoothie into an airtight container and store it in the refrigerator if you plan to drink it within 24 hours. Before drinking, give it a good stir or shake, as separation is natural.
