Strawberry Carrot Smoothie

Yesterday, I wanted to use up a few ingredients that were going to go bad so I made a delicious and filling smoothie. This smoothie is high in vitamins A and C from the strawberries and carrots.

First, I laid out the ingredients. Missing from the picture is skim milk and Healthy Balance Juice.

Then, I got started.

-Large handful of raw baby spinach
-5 medium sized strawberries
-about 1/2 cup Arctic Zero Vanilla Maple (Greek yogurt, regular yogurt or any kind of ice cream would work as well)
-1/2 cup carrot sticks
-about 1/4 cup skim milk
-about 1/2 cup Healthy Balance Blueberry Pomegranate juice (or any juice)

Put in all in a blender...
And blend on pulse for about a minute.
 I was not sure how I would like the carrot in there but you could not taste it at all.  It was a great smoothie.

  3. Ok the spinach part has me....I don't know if I could do it. See I wouldn't mind tasting purred carrot, just not sure about purred spinach. Can you taste the spinach??

  4. I put carrots and spinach in smoothies all the time and I like them because you can't really taste them, but adds veggies to my diet. My sons like that the smooties are green, but I don't tell them about the spinach!
