Between the carrot, the ginger and the strawberries, this smoothie is packed with so many health benefits I don’t even know where to begin. Just go make it.

  1. Hi, could you describe the taste? Usually when I add carrots into my smoothies they always tend to give the strongest taste and smell so I was wondering if this happened with this smoothie with either the carrot or the ginger? Or was it the perfect smoothie where each ingredient had its time to shine! Love to hear back from you. πŸ™‚

    1. I couldn’t taste too strongly either of them. I think the strawberries and coconut milk really help for that πŸ™‚ Even if it doesn’t become your favorite smoothie, if you try it, you’ll probably finish it πŸ˜‰

    1. Oh, good question. I should’ve specified.
      Definitely chopping it helps. I have a pretty powerful “blender”, I use the nutribullet with the 900w motor. (I used to have the nutribullet 600w and worked as good.) But I still chop the carrot. Shredding might be good too.
