Orange apple smoothie

Side Note:  Blend these ingredients in a blender and not a juicer.  Using a juicer eliminates the very important fiber, which helps a person’s body absorb the natural sugars slower and increase their satiety level.  


2 apples – cored

1 orange – peeled

1-inch piece of ginger – peeled

4 small or 2 large carrots

3 cups of water

Blend together in a high-speed blender until smooth. Chill before serving or add ice 2 cups of ice and reduce the water to 2 cups.
