Carrot Tops Smoothie


We all have our favorite green smoothies that we love to blend up every day. There seems to be no other more popular smoothie than our community favorite, Beginner’s Luck. It’s hard to mess with perfection, but we’ve taken this recipe a step further by adding in some carrot tops. Rich in vitamins and minerals, like potassium and calcium, carrot tops also contain protein and more than 6 times the vitamin C of carrots. Be sure to use organic tops to avoid contamination from pesticides.

So think twice before tossing the leafy green carrot tops – blend them up instead!

Description

We are lovers of all things leafy green— especially spinach. And this extremely creamy green smoothie is no exception.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup fresh spinach
  • 1 carrot (include leafy tops)

    I’m new to the site and super excited to try these. Problem is, I can’t eat spinach bc my body likes to form it into kidney stones. On your substitution guide, I saw romaine and kale—are there other leafy greens I should be thinking about?

    • SGS Rawkstar Amanda says:

      Yes! Learn more about our favorite leafy greens here…

    This smoothie is great… Simple and effective. However I made one on Sunday night from ingredients I’d frozen the previous week and a fresh banana. I had half one day then saved half for the following day. Decanted it from the jug in the fridge into my flask, took it to work and 4 hours later it exploded! Queue mass work hysteria….

    What did I do? And how does one avoid this happening again?

    • SGS Rawkstar says:

      Hi Heggs,

      Oh no! We hope your office has recovered from mass green smoothie hysteria! Sometimes when we use extra ripe fruit and leave our smoothie at room temperature, the fruit can actually begin to ferment creating gas inside the container…sometimes leading to explosion or leaking! For that reason, it’s best to keep your smoothie chilled as long as possible when storing.

      Hope this helps!
