I usually like my smoothies ultra-thick, but I also enjoyed this one that was almost more of a juice. And what a burst of energy it gave me this morning! Made in my VitaMix of course.
Citrus Carrot Smoothie
makes 3 large glasses
- 2 cups fresh pineapple (including core)
- 1 cup carrots
- 1 frozen banana
- 2 cups ice
- 1 cup water
- 2 TB lemon juice (or 1/4 inch slice lemon including peel)
Combine in Vitamix, start on variable setting 1, quickly increase to 10, then to high. Blend for 1 minute or until smooth.
