Carrot Smoothie

carrot smoothie

1 c. carrot juice
1/2 unsweetened applesauce
2 T frozen orange juice concentrate
1 c. plain greek yogurt (you can use regular yogurt but you lose the great protein source. I’d say add a scoop of protein powder if you make this switch)
dash of salt

Blend until fully combined.

you can make your own carrot juice as well

puree a bag of carrots (washed, peeled, tops cut off)
add 2 c. hot water and stir
allow it to sit out for about a half hour then strain the pulp
1 t. salt
add more water to taste
