I usually make smoothies with various fruits and vegetables, but lately, I’ve been alternating them with other things to share with you.

Don’t we all like varieties? I think the answer is a resounding yes!

But I’m not going to lie to you either… I’ve had an orange smoothie recipe in the works for a while now, but something made me do it sooner than I planned.

Are you wondering what it could be? A cold that I got over this weekend.

Cold and flu are catching me earlier than everyone else. It’s not officially fall yet, but I’m already getting a cold if the sun doesn’t come up.

This weekend I had sinus congestion and too much pain in my throat, accompanied by loss of voice.

I literally had no appetite. One of the few foods I craved was my daily smoothies. But this time, not for a creamy watermelon smoothie. All I thought was good was this nutrient-dense and citrus orange-carrot smoothie.

Made with fresh ginger, carrots, and orange, it was just the thing to relieve my pesky and uncomfortable cold.

Blend it all up, and you get a colorful citrus smoothie that is exactly what you expected.

You may also want to add some ice to your ingredients. How much ice you need is up to you! I alternate between thick and cold smoothies and light-room temperature smoothies. So if I opt for a thick consistency, I’ll add a few handfuls of ice.

So now scroll down and make your orange carrot smoothie in just 5 minutes.
