Spicy Raw Carrot Banana Smoothie

Yummy! Yummy! Yummy! This is another quick smoothie that is not only delicious, but fairly inexpensive.

If you are new to juicing you may not even know that you can use the leftover pulp that remains after you have made your juice. 

I juice carrots on most days and, as you can imagine, produce incredible amounts of carrot pulp. Over the time I have created many recipes, not all of them raw, but all of them incredibly easy and fun to make. This is one of my favorite in the whole collection.


Ingredients:
  • 1 cup leftover carrot pulp (if you do not juice, use shredded carrots)
  • 1 ripe banana
  • 1 1/2 cup raw nut milk of your choice
  • 1/4 tsp dried ginger
  • 1/4 tsp cardamom 
  • 1/4 tsp hot chili flakes
  • pinch Celtic sea salt
  • 1 tsp virgin olive oil or cold pressed oil of your choice
  • 2-3 ice cubes (optional)


Method:
  • Pour nut milk into a blender. Add carrots and banana. Add ice if you want to and blend until smooth.
  • Add spices and olive oil. Blend for w few seconds.
  • Pour smoothie into glasses and enjoy in good company!

As you see, I did not add any sweetener. Not even honey! Carrots are naturally sweet and if you use a very ripe banana you will not have to add anything to make your smoothie sweet. In fact, I believe that this smoothie tastes better when it is only slightly sweet and very spicy. You may find otherwise. Experiment and alter the proportions if you wish.
