Okay you guys, I’m not usually a smoothie fan… which I think stems from my issues with texture.  To me, a smoothie should be, well, smooth.  My old blender was the traditional kind with the little blades at the base of the blender, and it never really got my smoothies very smooth.  There was always little chunks.  Chunks = grosssss!  So about a week ago I hit up my local Target and bought myself a Ninja blender.  OMG, I’m in blender heaven!!  No more chunks, ever!

I can’t believe I resisted getting one of these babies for so long!

Okay, on to the smoothie… so carrots.  Were you surprised to see them in the title?  Well each month the FoodieMamas and I have a theme, and this month the theme is carrots.  I LOVE carrots in this smoothie… as it bumps up the nutrient factor, adds a fun color, and it makes me feel better about drinking a LOT of these… because it has a vegetable in it, it must be totally healthy right? 😉

Well that’s my total rationalization anyway 😉

Consider this a base recipe, where you can switch it up to add whichever fruits you like best!

Depending on the sweetness of your fruits, you may or may not need any sweeteners… I only needed a pinch of sugar for the perfect fresh, sweet taste.

  1. I am with you on the whole texture thing. I actually really prefer my smoothies with no dairy, too. I keep hearing amazing things about these Ninjas! Maybe it is time I breakdown and treat myself 🙂

  2. Why have I never thrown baby carrots into my smoothies?! Genius!

  3. What a delightfully refreshing drink

  4. Never thought of adding carrots to my smoothie. Very clever 🙂

  5. This is definitely my kind of smoothie!

  6. I love my Ninja too…I am pretty much obsessed with it. We did not have the best of blenders before, so having a Ninja now is like upgrading times 5! Your smoothie looks wonderful…such a great way to start the day!

  7. I love our Ninja blender! We use it almost every day! I can’t believe that I’ve never thought to toss carrots into my smoothies when I make them!

  8. Carrots in a smoothie is a great idea, carrots have a sweetness to them which totally works for a smoothie and getting in our nutrition is very important! Totally inspiring me to make some smoothies!

  9. What a gorgeous smoothie! I love the combination of carrot and pineapple. And it’s vegan to boot. Can’t wait to try it for a healthy breakfast this week!

  10. I know what you mean about chunky smoothies. I wasn’t a convert until I got a good high speed blender. Carrots have never made it into my smoothies before but they will now-these look absolutely gorgeous!

  11. These looks so good! I’m going to try it without the added sugar. I love all that real food sweetness from the delicious fruit you used in it!

  12. I’m new to adding smoothies to my daily meal plans and I had carrots I really didn’t want to cook so I found this recipe snd it was very ?. I will keep for the future.
