This simple to make carrot smoothie is bursting with tropical flavors and is so full of nutrients… healthy never tasted so good!
Simple ingredients, full of nutrients, deliciously and naturally sweet… this is the perfect smoothie!
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 pieces. 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!
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.
