Inspiration Behind the Spring Break Smoothie
This citrusy concoction contains:
- Vitamin C-rich fruit to help strengthen your immune system for upcoming travel.
- Ginger and chia seeds for digestion support (and to help reduce bloating).
- Coconut water for pre- and post-workout hydration.
The Spring Break Smoothie also includes carrot juice for extra antioxidants such as vitamin A. And because fresh carrot juice tastes freaking amazing.
I just love including carrot juice in a smoothie, because it delivers a unique earthy, yet sweet flavor. It's one of those ingredients that can really take your smoothie next level.
However, finding fresh carrot juice (or making it) can be a bit high maintenance. So, feel free to omit it.
Or, throw in some fresh chopped carrots. Or frozen ones. The carrot flavor won't be as concentrated as it is with juice, but the smoothie will be just fine.
It'll still be delicious, in fact!
