Carrot smoothie

This is my mother's recipe. I remember her giving us these warm smoothies before we hurried to school, or came back tired from college. My mom's the best!


Prep time: 10 minutes
Serves 2

Ingredients
2 cups fresh carrots, cut into chunks
1/2 cup cashew nuts
Pinch of cardamom powder
2 tsp honey

Pressure cook the carrots and cashew nuts in 2 cups of water, or microwave them on high for 5 minutes. Let them cool.

Place the cooled carrots, cashew, the cooked carrot broth, honey in a high powered blender and blend until smooth. Enjoy! Add cardamom and stir.

You can also make this ahead of time and chill in the fridge. It is a great welcome drink for parties too!
