Recipe of the Day:
Carrot, Sesame and Date Smoothie
Submitted by: FoFa
"You can just about chew on this nutty tasting smoothie, what with all the carrot, sesame seeds and wheat germ. The sweetness here comes from the dates and orange juice, which also contribute calcium, magnesium and lots of vitamin C.
But I still like to add a packet or two of sweetener, but maybe I just have a super sweet tooth."
1 medium carrot (about 3 ounces), peeled and coarsely chopped
3 fresh dates, preferably medjool, pitted
1 tablespoon lightly toasted sesame seeds
1 tablespoon wheat germ
1/3 cup fresh orange juice
2 or 3 ice cubes
Place all of the ingredients in a blender along with a few ice cubes if desired and blend until smooth.
