Carrot Juice & Smoothie

Today we are using our hydroponic carrots for making a sweet fresh juice and a smoothie. That’s right, we areĀ having 2 recipes in 1 post as the first serves as the base for the second.

Carrot Juice

Ingredients

2 large carrots

1/4 cup (60ml) water (if using blender)

1/2 cup (120ml) freshly squeezed orange juice

Serves: 2

Directions

Wash the carrots. Peel and cut them into chunks and place them in the blender. Pour in the water and pulse several times until they are fully shredded. Place a strainerĀ over the pitcher and pour; use a spoon to press the mixture to get the most juice out. (Though if you have a juicer, pop the washed carrots into the machine and juice them.) Add the freshly squeezed orange juice and stir.

Carrot-Mango Smoothie

Mangoes are always in season in The Philippines; so it is only natural to add them to our carrots for making this smoothie.

1 mango (peeled, pit removed, chopped)

3/4 cup ripe pineapple chunks (peeled and cored)

1/2 cup natural yogurt (or Greek)

1 cup ice cubes

Serves: 2

Directions

In a blender, place all the ingredients listed above and puree until smooth until desired consistency. Serve immediately.
