Servings : 2 serves
Prep Time 5 mins
Total Time 5 mins

Ingredients
  

  • 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

Instructions
 

  • Add all ingredients to a high powered blender in order listed (sweetener is optional); process until completely blended.
  • Taste for sweetness and adjust accordingly.

Notes

  • 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.
