Carrot Ginger Smoothies

We’re offering you two carrot smoothies to help you get your beta carotene, which the body converts to vitamin A. This important vitamin supports the development of your baby’s eyes, heart and lungs. The addition of ginger in these recipes pairs wonderfully with the carrot and will help fight nausea. In the Carrot Ginger Smoothie from The Roasted Root (pictured), these delicious, nutritious ingredients are paired with immunity-boosting coconut milk, probiotic-filled yogurt and honey. In her Carrot, Apple and Ginger Smoothie, the Kitchen Missus adds apple, grapes and lemon for a light, bright flavor and a vitamin C burst.
