got some beautiful carrots from the CSA box - lovely greens, taste bitter.
Any smoothie or other recipes using carrots greens?

I've tried them in a smoothie, once. To much fiber for me. I tried blending it longer, but kept spitting out strings of fiber. :p I ended up having to strain the smoothie.
Maybe all carrot tops are not equal. I'd be willing to try them again, but I would cut them in small pieces with a knife before putting in the Vita-mix.

I've put them in smoothie drinks with the Vitamix with no problem.

I've got the vitamix - will give it a try. I'll whirr them up just on their own with water and ice to make sure.....
Any advise on recipes?:D

I've heard that you're not supposed to eat the carrot greens, and that they are some how 'bad' for you, but I don't know what I think about them personally.....how could they be bad??? anyone know? I have'nt tried eating them yet, cause I haven't made my mind up about them (plus I usually buy the bags of carrots with the greens already cut off..... anyone have info on why they might be a 'good' or 'bad' thing to eat...? this thread just made me curious.......
