Smoothie Sunday: Pineapple Carrot Smoothie

While I was looking up carrot cake recipes to get ideas for my carrot cake smoothie I stumbled upon a few that contained pineapple. I was intrigued by this combination and figured it would work well for a smoothie too. While it is another carrot smoothie that was semi-inspired by carrot cake, it tastes different enough from the carrot cake smoothie thanks to the pineapple. The pineapple really adds a lovely citrus tang. Drink this smoothie and you won’t have to worry about getting scurvy and you’ll be able to see in the dark better.

What you'll need

What you’ll need

Pineapple Carrot Smoothie:

  • 1 cup carrots
  • 1 cup pineapple chunks (fresh or canned)*
  • 5-6 ice cubes
  • 1 5.3 oz container vanilla yogurt
  • Pinch of salt
  • Sugar to taste

Combine the first 4 ingredients in a blender until smooth. Add the salt and sugar and mix until well combined. Pour into a tall glass, drink and enjoy!

*If using canned, pour in the juices from the can (as long as they weren’t in heavy syrup). If using fresh you may want to add a couple of tablespoons pineapple or orange juice.
