Strawberry Banana Carrot Greens Smoothie
I have been sharing smoothie recipes with you guys for awhile now. I think it’s obvious that fruits are delicious in it, but did you know that adding in your salad could so good for you? In fact, I don’t even taste it! Which to be honest, makes it easier for me to add in it daily 😉
For this smoothie recipe I layered in carrots, strawberries, banana, coconut water and greens into my Ninja Auto iQ. I just grab a handful of whatever salad I have in the refrigerator for the greens. I will admit that I have yet to use kale, but that is on my agenda to try one day soon!
I love using carrots, they are full of vitamins and they are a “sweeter” veggie, so the flavor in my smoothie is very mild. You will notice that I use Juice Plus+ Complete Shake Mix in my smoothies, feel free to use a shake mix that you use or leave it out.
Now, here’s my Strawberry Banana Carrot Greens Smoothie recipe. Make sure to Pin It and Print It so that you can make it again and again!
- 4-5 baby carrots
- 4-5 strawberries - with greens cut off
- ½ banana
- Handful of greens
- ⅓ cup Juice Plus+ Vanilla Complete Shake Mix
- 4 ice cubes
- 4 oz of coconut water - you can use regular water if you prefer
- Place the ingredients as listed into your blending device
- Blend until smooth
Here are some of the health benefits of the ingredients I selected for this smoothie:
Strawberries – These red beauties are loaded with vitamins, fiber, and potassium. As an added benefit – they are fat-free 🙂
Carrots – The orange powerfood will give you vitamin A and is also linked to preventing cancer, giving you healthier looking skin and aids in digestion.
Bananas – Besides tasting great, they are loaded with potassium which helps muscles recover and relax, and they have also been known to help you sleep better.
Protein Powder – Helps keep you full longer and makes your smoothie extra creamy.
I hope you enjoy this Strawberry Banana Carrot Greens Smoothie as much as I do!
