Carrot & ginger Yogurt Smoothie/Carrot More/Carrot Lassi

Starting our week 4 of Cooking Carnival 2016, Week 1 & 2 i did sandwiches and Week 3 was a Salad week, and now week 4 is going to be a Smoothie Week. 
I always make myself a big glass of smoothie, post my workout session, so all this week, it is going to be simple, yet great filling smoothies that energizes you instantly. i never use sugar in my smoothies, so it is all going to be naturally sweetened with the goodness of fruits. 
Today i bring you a yogurt smoothie with cooked carrots, spiced up a bit with ginger. It a refreshing drink to serve on a sunny day. It cools down the body and the ginger gives you that peppy feel. 
I already have a Gooseberry Yogurt smoothie, a savory smoothie, like this carrot smoothie. 
Ingredients (serves 2) 
1 small carrot, cut into roundels
1 tsp grated ginger
half a green chili (optional)
2-3 curry leaves
3/4 cup yogurt/curd, chilled
1/2 cup watere
salt to taste

Method

  • Take the cut carrot roundels. in a microwave safe mug, add 1/2 cup water and microwave cook at high for 3 minutes. Let it sit the microwave for another 2 minutes. Take it out. Drain the carrots, reserve that water, add it soup or rasam or to cook dal. You can also chill that water in the refrigerator and use it in the smoothie.
  • Let the cooked carrots cool for 10 minutes. Then take them in a blender jar, add grated ginger, chili, curry leaves and yogurt. Blend until the carrots are smooth.
  • Add water and salt, blend again until frothy. Pour it in glasses and serve.
