View Full Version : carrots in green smoothies

this may be kind of gross, but i really like carrots in there. the best recipe i could come up with was 1 big part spinach + diced carrots + half an apple + 1 banana. it turns out to be the most repulsive color.
what else goes good with carrots in a green smoothie? or am i a big weirdo.

I've been adding carrots in there lately too. I started when my daughter and I had this delicious smoothie at Costco when the Vitamix folks were there doing their demo and it had strawberries, carrots, and some other fruits I forget.

I agree with the strawberries. I also absolutely can not have a smoothie without very ripe bananas. It just doesn't happen in my house. My usual smoothie contains: spinach, 1-2 bananas, strawberries. This is the base and from there for variation I will add what ever I have. Most times it is the most disgusting looking green color that no one but me will drink it. Well, I do feed it to my 8 mo old. It tastes so refreshing though, mostly a sweet smoothie and if you close your eyes and drink you would never guess that it is green.

Carrots, orange, banana, sometimes a chunk of ginger, apple, pineapple, the list goes on. But my most favorite reaction to my smoothies is "WHAT on God's green earth is THAT concoction you are drinking and WHY is it GREEN???"

hahahahahha... i tell my 5 year old daughter i'm drinking frog juice, and she screams and runs away. but i can tell she is more intrigued now then when i used to offer it to her saying how good it tastes! (and get the vigorous head shake and a polite "no thank you").

Now thats funny........ I'm usually pretty honest about what I've put in my smoothie. Dh looks at it and says .. uh huh!! Took him a couple of smoothies and watching me enjoy and yummy them to even take a sip. When I told him I had put kale in it, he said "where, I don't taste it!!"

I always wondered if carrots would taste good in there, so after reading this, I was inspired to put carrots in mine. I did banana, carrots, spinach and cherries. It was great. Actually I didn't really taste the carrots much. I am always trying to eat more carrots, so I am excited to be putting them in the smoothies now.
