- 50 Grams of spinach
- 1 Banana
- Half glass of orange juice (or 1 fresh orange)

Blend at high speed for 30 seconds, followed by 30 seconds at low speed. Ready to serve
As mentioned, carrots are not the easiest of ingredients to blend, so make sure you add enough liquids.
For this green smoothie I have added orange juice and also one banana to give it a bit more of a fruity taste.
I also added spinach as a main ingredient. Not only to honor the word green in green smoothie, but also because it gives this smoothie a better balance.
It works well with the carrots and ginger that both have a very dominant taste.
Depending on your diet and taste preferences, spinach can easily be replaced with kale or any other green vegetable you may prefer.
Overall this carrot spinach smoothie recipe is absolutely delicious and will provide you with a great amount of nutrients in one go.
