Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup carrots cut into chunks
  • 2 cups baby spinach loosely packed
  • 1 apple stem and seeds removed
  • 1 banana
  • 3/4 cup frozen blueberries
  • 1/2 cup frozen mango chunks or any other frozen fruit
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 1/2 1/2" cube fresh ginger root peeled
  • 4-5 ice cubes
  • 3/4 cup water or milk/milk-alternative

Instructions

  1. Add all ingredients to the blender. I usually put the carrots at the bottom, so the blender can chop them up first - though I doubt it really matters.
  2. Blend until smooth.
  3. Enjoy!

Recipe Notes

A lot of people like to use kale instead of spinach in their smoothies - and that's a great choice! Just be aware that it'll probably make your smoothie brown instead of purple. Not the most appealing color, perhaps, but it'll still taste good!
