Apple and carrot smoothie
This delicious creamy-textured apple and carrot smoothie will turn you into a smoothie fan. That’s my promise as a food enthusiast. Let’s be honest apples and carrots sound a bit cliché considering both are classically full of health according to doctors. Carrots as veggies and apples as “an apple a day keeps the doctor away”.
Deliciously Creamy Smoothie
This apple and carrot smoothie is ideal for eliminating abdominal fat, promotes digestion, helps prevent constipation, and, being low in calories, is ideal for keeping your weight balanced.
The old but clearly relatable phrase has positioned the apple as fruit really well deep in our minds. As kids and as adults we all wanted to drink our calories as much as we could. Talking about juices and smoothies they are comparatively easy to consume. Smoothies unlike fruit juices offer a lot more benefits. Rich in fruit and vegetable fiber apple and carrot smoothie offers essential natural proteins and antioxidants.
The best vegan smoothie
Smoothies that include sharply flavored ingredients are bound to be healthy. With the majority of the population now preferring vegan options, nothing could be better than this apple and carrot smoothie. For other non-vegan options, you may want to check the braised beef or Galician octopus recipe. How about a carrot and apple smoothie with a pinch of ginger in it? To some, it may not appeal as much but believe me when I say it didn’t taste odd at all. Adding a couple of ginger slices will enhance the punchy node. To balance the flavor, you may add some lemon juice but it tastes as good as without lemon. If you are a big fan of lemon zing do check this delicious lemon mousse recipe.
Smoothie vs. juice; the age-old question
Now the old age comparison of juices vs smoothies, I am a big fan of smoothies. My vote isn’t based upon mere personal choice but a rational one. Let’s talk about the basics first. The key difference between smoothies and juices is the procedure through which they are made. Juices are normally extracted from cold press juicers and other standard high-speed electric juicers. Smoothies are blended in smoothie makers including all the ingredients and their fibers. So, juices do not include essential fibers while smoothies do have fruit fibers and husk.
What’s right? Apple and carrot smoothie or juice
Whether you should extract juice or have a smoothie is entirely up to the individual needs and preferences. Juices tend to be sweeter and absorb far more easily than smoothies which are less sweet due to whole fruit it. People who are weight-conscious should go for smoothies, while people who are looking for a quick energy fix may choose juices over smoothies.
So, apple and carrot smoothie is the right choice so here is the healthy recipe for you to make and enjoy.
