This Tropical Vanilla Orange Carrot Smoothie is my new favorite Spring drink that you can drink year round.
It’s loaded with nutrients, vitamins, and healthy ingredients.
This orange carrot smoothie is made with fresh oranges, frozen mango, frozen bananas, carrot juice, orange juice, vanilla extract, and ice. I throw everything in a high powered Vitamix and it’s blended to perfection in a few minutes.
The ice and frozen fruit give this orange and carrot smoothie an ice cold texture. The vanilla adds sweetness.
This carrot orange smoothie benefits:
- those looking for a high dose of vitamin C and vitamin A
- individuals who need dairy free breakfast ideas or eggless breakfast options
- people who need more fiber and potassium
This tropical vanilla orange carrot smoothie is:
- always gluten-free
- dairy free
- thick, but not too thick
- enough to feed a family of four in 5 minutes flat
2 navel oranges peeled and sectioned
2 cups frozen mango chunks
1 banana, sliced and frozen
1 cup orange juice
1 cup carrot juice
1 Tablespoon vanilla extract
2 ice cubes
Blend fresh oranges, frozen mango chunks, frozen banana slices, orange juice, carrot juice, extract and ice in a high powered blender or Vitamix while gradually increasing the speed from 0-10, for 1-2 minutes, until oranges are well blended and the smoothie is creamy.
A fresh banana will suffice but will not yield a cold smoothie. I highly recommend a frozen banana. And, I recommend cutting the banana in half or slices before freezing which will allow easier blending.
