This bright smoothie is the perfect morning pick-me-up with help from the turmeric and ginger. Carrot juice can be used in place of the shredded carrots—simply add a few more ice cubes at the end of blending.
Put the carrots and half of the coconut milk in a blender. Blend on low speed while slowly adding the remaining coconut milk, about 20 seconds, scraping down the blender as needed; blend until smooth or only slightly coarse, about 20 seconds. Add the orange, dates, lemon juice, ginger, and turmeric. Blend on low speed, and slowly increase to high speed; blend until smooth, about 30 seconds. Add more coconut milk as needed to thin the smoothie to your desired thickness. Add the ice and blend on high speed to crush and incorporate, about 30 seconds. Serve immediately.

I tried this as an alternative to the green smoothies I usually make, but not a huge fan. Subbing frozen pineapple for the ice cubes bumps this up closer to a 4, but given the amount of prep time required I probably won't make it again.
