Maple Ginger Glazed Carrots

Ingredients

  • 1 handful carrot greens
  • 1.5 cups carrots - scrubbed, chopped

We’ve turned one of the holiday’s best and most delicious side dishes into something even more delicious: a smoothie, of course! Carrots don’t just make this treat look festive, they also fill it with vitamins A, C, K, E, beta-carotene, and folate, to name a few. These vitamins and minerals will give you a glow just in time for the holidays, while at the same time keeping your hunger at bay. The spicy ginger and sweet maple syrup don’t just complement each other taste-wise; they provide beneficial antioxidants and nutrients such as manganese and zinc, while aiding with digestion.

‘Tis the season for carrots! Try the Carrot Coconut Lime Smoothie or the Turmeric Carrot Smoothie.
