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!
