Carrots are a great smoothie ingredient. They are sweet as well as packed with fiber and vitamins. Adding carrots to your smoothie is a great way to up your veg intake in a sweet way 🙂 Carrot and peach smoothie is sweet, but not heavy sweet. It’s fresh because the carrots give that clean crunchy sweetness.
Carrots are a source of Vitamin A and K. Because those Vitamins are fat-soluble carrots should be eaten with a bit of fat so we are able to absorb those Vitamins. Flaxseed is a great source of Omega-3 fatty acid and will be able to assist in the Vitamin absorption.
Carrots might seem tricky to blend but my not high-speed blender have no problems with them. If you have doubts about your blender then blend the carrots first with part of the water until you get a carrot puree. Then add the remaining ingredients and blend again.
