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.
