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.
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.
