SugarFree Carrot-Raisin-Ginger Smoothie | Summer Recipes

For this month’s Magic Mingle, we had chosen Raisins and Carrots – two healthy ingredients for this summer. The other members have already linked their delicious entries here. Sugarfree Carrots-Raisin-Ginger smoothie is a quick beverage that can be made in a couple of minutes. Carrots is an universal favourite while raisins are excellent both for kids and elders as a great dry fruit. Ginger is added to this recipe to beat the acidity that accompanies most summer days, and lime to give that punch to the mocktail. I have also used Honey in place of sugar to make this a healthy and sugarfree mocktail.

For older kids or elders, you may also add in a handful of roasted Oats  (which I did) to make it more healthy and filling. With a dash of ginger and a twist of lime and served chilled, this is a perfect way to start your day at breakfast or for a quick beverage for kids back from school or the playground. 

Sending this to my own event Magic Mingle, Srav’s CC-Spring Seasonal FoodPreeti’s Jump’ N Jive @ Icypritz, Anusha’s  Summer Spirits as well as Radhika’s Chilled Delights . So, without any further delay, lets get to the recipe.
