This is really yummy - a bit complicated to make, but worth it. I had to process the heck out of the carrot mixture to make it into a paste, and also had to add more carrot juice than the recipe calls for. I kept some of the solid carrot paste in the smoothie, seemed like such a waste to toss it all. Next time I'll keep even more. I use agave nectar instead of honey, and about of what was called for.
