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!

    • Hi Marelie! If you are still interested in following, just click on the orange “NancyCreative” title on the left side of the blog and that will take you to the home page. There you will see a twitter button near the top on the right sidebar. If you scroll down a little more, there’s a Facebook button, too. For some reason, they don’t show up when you are looking at a direct link, only on the homepage. Thank you for visiting and leaving a comment! :)
