Carrot Creamsicle

You know what's really good? Blending carrot juice with other stuff. I know it seems like sacrilege to a detox purist, but what can I say: I like it!

Must be the rebel in me. The rebel made me do it. And the fact of having some day old Trader Joe's carrot juice in the fridge. Along with some fresh turmeric roots, aka the anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, anti-cancer best herb ever. Nothing wrong with that. 

If you don't have access to fresh turmeric, just use the best quality powder you can find. And drink up. To your health! 

Carrot Creamsicle

8 ounces carrot juice
1/4-1/2 of a honey crisp apple, cored
1/2 a lemon, peeled
1 small turmeric root, or a teaspoon of powdered turmeric
1 Tablespoon hemp protein powder
1/4 cup raw cashews

Optional Supplement Boosts
2 g vitamin C powder (I like Complete C from Innate Response) for added immune support.
2 g leucine powder (from Moss Nutrition). Leucine, a branched chain amino acid, works together with protein to help stimulate muscle growth and promote lean body mass (as opposed to fat. You know what I'm talking about.)

Put all the ingredients into a blender and whip into a sweet, frothy shake. Serves one delightfully.
