Carrot-Orange-Pineapple Smoothie

ncCarOrPineSmooth1nm

Here’s a great-tasting, healthy smoothie to get your day off to a good start! I found the recipe over at realsimple.com. I love having smoothies for breakfast during the warmer months of the year…they’re so easy and quick to make. This smoothie has pineapple, orange juice, carrots and half of a banana in it–so if you like these ingredients, you’ll want to try this out! The recipe calls for fresh pineapple, but I substituted canned pineapple chunks because that’s what I had on hand.

CARROT-ORANGE-PINEAPPLE SMOOTHIE very slightly adapted from Real Simple

Makes 1 serving

  • 3/4 cup chopped fresh pineapple or canned pineapple chunks
  • 1/2 cup ice
  • 1/3 cup fresh orange juice
  • 1/4 cup chopped carrot
  • 1/2 banana

Place the pineapple, ice, orange juice, carrot, and banana in a blender. Blend until smooth and frothy.

That’s all there is to it! It also makes a great afternoon snack when you’re craving something sweet but want something healthy!
