This is a recipe from Michael Symon’s new book, Fix it with Food. He provides some delicious recipes to do a 10-day “reset” eliminating meat and dairy products.
This smoothie is so good, I’ve made it multiple times already. It’s sweet, tart and slightly spicy from the fresh ginger. It tastes just like an orange slushy, even though there are no oranges in it! Very refreshing and healthy on a warm summer day.
It’s so easy to make. You just need 2 carrots, 1 cup of frozen pineapple chunks, the juice from 1 lemon, 1 small chunk of fresh ginger, peeled, 1 teaspoon of ground turmeric, 1 tablespooon of coconut or avocado oil, and about a cup of water.
I use a high-speed blender (NutriBullet) to ensure that everything gets pureed evenly. I highly recommend this recipe for an easy and refreshing smoothie. You can have it for breakfast, or a mid-day pickup, perhaps after a workout. Enjoy!
