- 4 carrots, sliced
- 4 cups water
- 1 teaspoon dried peppermint, or 1 peppermint tea bag
1. In a medium saucepan, combine all of the ingredients and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium-low, cover loosely, and simmer until the carrots are very tender, about 15 minutes. If you're using a tea bag, discard it now.
2. Blend or process the mixture until it is very smooth. Sip warm.
If the weather is damp: Stir in a pinch of ground ginger before blending.
If the weather is dry: Stir in a teaspoon of lemon juice before blending.
