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
1 cup water
1 cup vanilla Greek yogurt
1 cup frozen raspberries
1/2 cup unsweetened apple juice
Add liquid and fruit to blender, whirl until smooth.
Add yogurt and whip until nice and creamy.
Nectarine smoothie with unpeeled fruit
2 medium fresh nectarines (peeled and pitted)
1/2 cup skim milk
1 TBSP honey
1/3 cup plain or vanilla Greek yogurt
3 or 4 ice cubes
Slice nectarines and add ingredients in order to the blender.
Whip until smooth.
You can use unpeeled nectarines, but you should blend them with half the milk first before adding remainder of ingredients.
(You can use regular yogurt but you should add a scoop of protein powder to replace the greek yogurt)
