“Vegetable Magnetism” Carrot Squash Cleansing Smoothie
Trying to keep your system cleansed, but need a break from all the greens? This one's a bit more mild, with emphasis on the orangey, high beta-carotene carrots and butternut squash.
- 4 carrots, whole
- 1 cup peeled butternut squash
- 1/2 cucumber, roughly chopped and leave peel on
- Half-inch piece of ginger
- Shake of cinnamon
- 1 cup water
- 4-6 ice cubes
- Prep all ingredients, then place into Vitamix container. Blend on high for 45-60 seconds. Serve immediately.
- This recipe was originally designed to be made with a juicer. By making it with the Vitamix, you're retaining the fiber, but it also comes out much thicker. Add water to suit your own desired thickness.
