This is the second type of (fruit) smoothie I have ever made. The first was my banana-berry-peanut butter smoothie, but I decided I needed to try different types. And since I’m armed with an internet connection, I found this Orange Carrot Smoothie which looked cool enough to try, and I had a lot of the ingredients.
I decreased the juices and carrot amounts a little bit and added a tablespoon of pumpkin seeds (something I started doing at the end of my last smoothie experience).
Ingredients & Method
– 1 banana
– 1/4 cup yoghurt
– 1/3 cup orange juice (or fresh fruit)
– 1/3 cup pineapple juice (or fresh fruit)
– 2/3 cup sliced carrots
– 1 tbsp pumpkin seeds
1. cut it up
2. blend it down
3. pour & consume
tbh I didn’t like this smoothie as much as my old one.. It’s palatable, and maybe someone else will like it more. I thought it was going to turn out like carrot juice, or multivitamin juice (my fave). At first I thought I didn’t like it because I had just brushed my teeth… or maybe I’m not a huge fan of carrots? But now I’m thinking that the yoghurt might’ve thrown it off a little…I didn’t try it with fresh fruits.. I’m going to make a couple adjustments to it and try again though 🙂
