Delicious Carrot Smoothie


Lately, I’ve been experimenting with some amazing smoothie recipes. Sometimes I’ll use them as a meal replacement, and sometimes I’ll use them as a type of detox for my body after a holiday, and sometimes I just like to have them as an accompaniment to a meal. It all depends on what types of ingredients you’re placing in the blender. I’ve posted a few of my smoothies on my fitblr, but I’m going to start posting them here as well. Let me introduce my latest creation: The Carrot-Melon Smoothie. Yes, there are vegetables in this, but you wouldn’t know! It’s also vegan. Here’s what you need:

Wow, how bright and colorful, no??

Wow, how bright and colorful, no??

1/2 c. no sugar added apple juice
1 medium carrot chopped into rounds
1 ripe banana
2 oz. cantaloupe
1 shimmy shake of ground cinnamon

In your blender, pour apple juice and place chopped carrots in with the juice. Blend on high chop setting for about 30 seconds or until smooth. It should border on a watery consistency. Next, place your chopped banana, cantaloupe, and cinnamon in the blender. Blend on chop for another 20 seconds, and slow down to a low mix for 10 seconds. Pour into a glass, drink, and be merry. It tastes like apple cinnamon goodness.

 

For those who also follow Weight Watchers, this recipe counts as 2 points plus, and it packs a punch of beta carotene. To quote the most interesting man in the world, “Stay thirsty,” and tell me what you think!

    Smoothies are great meal replacements when you’re on the go or anything you can think of. It’s really healthy and delicious if you know the right combination. I always thought vegetable smoothies are delicious. I hope you enjoyed the smoothies :) .

    Take care!

    I’m actually not too big on carrots (which explains my horrible vision), but that doesn’t sound too bad at all. I can handle vegetable juice so I can most likely handle a smoothie.

    I love smoothies but unfortunately I’m not very fond of carrots.

    My friends just got a juicer and have been juicing fresh fruit for me.. I’m addicted!! I’m saving up for a Vitamix though so it’s more versatile.
