Here the spicy zing of ginger pairs perfectly with the sweetness of the carrots—proof that what’s good for us also tastes great, as ginger is anti-inflammatory and soothes digestion. Try adding other fresh herbs and spices, such as mint or parsley, to your smoothies to increase their flavour and their nutritional value.
