There are some vegetables and fruits that were just meant for each other. Like carrots, orange juice, and ginger. Carrots and orange juice are vibrantly appealing, ginger offers a standout flavor, and all three offer a variety of nutrients. Carrots are an excellent source of vitamin A and a very good source of biotin, fiber, molybdenum, potassium, and vitamins C, B6, and K. Oranges are an excellent source of vitamin C, a very good source of fiber, and a good source of calcium, copper, folate, potassium, and vitamin B1. And ginger is well known for gastrointestinal relief, its anti-inflammatory effects, and its protection against cancer. These three flavors complement each other perfectly and make for a beautiful, nutritious drink.
