Carrot, Ginger and Orange Ice

The vibrant colour of the carrots and orange is only enhanced by the zing from the ginger, which all together makes for an extra-delicious icy treat.


8 servings (950 ml)

10 Minutes


2.0 Litre Container


1 medium (130 g) orange, peeled, zested

1 (5 g) piece fresh ginger root
4 (30 g) pitted dates, or honey, to taste
3½ cups (455 g) ice cubes


1. Place all ingredients into the Vitamix container in the order listed and secure the lid.
2. Start the blender on its lowest speed, then quickly increase to its highest speed, using the tamper to press ingredients toward the blades.
3. In about 30-60 seconds, the sound of the motor will change and four mounds should form. Stop the machine. Do not over mix or melting will occur. Serve immediately.

Chef's Notes

The texture of this recipe is intended to be like a slushy, for a more frozen treat add additional ice. The Vitamix makes quick work of these whole foods and ice, use other fruits and vegetables to make a dessert all your own.
