carrot, orange + turmeric smoothie

This vivid orange smoothie is an invigorating breakfast. The carrot makes it a tad savory, but the hint of both orange and ginger round out the overall flavor. Adding a pinch of black pepper helps to bring out the health benefits in turmeric.

  • 1 1/2 cups frozen mango

  • 1 medium carrot, peeled and chopped

  • 1 orange, peeled and separated into wedges

  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil

  • 1 teaspoon ground turmeric

  • Pinch kosher salt

  • Pinch freshly ground black pepper
