Since it is January, instead of a cocktail, I like to share one of my favorite smoothie recipes. Last year, I shared my green juice smoothie and a green smoothie bowl. This red pepper smoothie is a new favorite of mine, I prefer it as a juice, but I do not have a juicer at home, so I blend it two times on the Juice option on my blender and will drink it as a smoothie.
Base of 1 cup of ice & 1 cup of water
1 large Red Bell Pepper
3-4 large Carrots
1/4 cup of Orange Juice
1/4 cup of Lime Juice (about half a good sized lime)
1/2 teaspoon of Cinnamon
1/2 inch knob of fresh Ginger
Blend all ingredients. If you have a juicer, try as a juice instead! Anytime I make smoothies, I try to stick with produce that is organic, if a vegetable is not organic, I usually peel the skin before adding to the blender.
