Ohmygosh we are so overdue for a chat!
Isn’t that so much better than saying we need to talk? We do need to talk however, about the fact that I’m 14 days into a full month of eats sans-dairy and haven’t gnawed off my own leg in the process! If you saw my last post you know how completely life-altering is for me to give up cheese for 30 days. Cheese! My spirit animal! How on Earth is this possible!?
To be honest I’m not entirely sure, but it’s by far the most challenging New Year’s Resolution I’ve ever made. Did I mention I also gave up coffee too?
WHO AM I?!!?
By some miracle I’ve actually kept at this and can proudly say that I did not physically harm my husband while he ate an ENTIRE cheese pizza in front of me.
Though if looks could kill…
Ohmygosh so hello! The smoothie! This smoothie is AWESOME and packed to the brim with tasty pineapple, mango, banana, carrot, a splash of orange juice and a tasty blend of coconut milk and almond milk. Finish it off with a coconut rimmed glass and your morning is suddenly filled with sunshine!
This fruity tropical pineapple carrot smoothie is perfect for combatting the dreary winter blues. It’s a tasty burst of sunshine that’ll instantly transport your tastebuds into Summer-mode. I’ll frequently make it on mornings that I have a lot of running around to do or as a snack when I need a little 3pm pick-me-up. Perfecto!
Full of refreshing tropical fruit, spiked with beta-carotene packed carrots, and splashed with Almond Breeze Almondmilk CoconutMilk Blend, it’s the perfect treat to transport me to my imaginary deserted island.
Made of cheese.
All jokes aside, you’ve got to try this smoothie!
Tropical Pineapple Carrot Smoothie
- 1 cup Almond Breeze Unsweetened Almondmilk Coconutmilk Blend
- juice of 1 orange, or 2-4 TBSP orange juice
- 1 cup frozen pineapple
- 1/2 cup frozen mango
- 1/2 a fresh banana
- 2-3 carrots, peeled and chopped
- sweeten as desired
- FEELING FANCY? Rim the glass with unsweetened shredded coconut. I used honey to make mine stick!
- Combine ingredients, starting with the liquid first, in your blender.
- Blend for several minutes until the fruit and carrots have blended into a creamy, dreamy, straw-worthy smoothie.
- Depending on preference and blender performance you may want/need to thin the smoothie with a little extra liquid. Adjust until desired thickness is reached.
Using a combination of fresh and frozen fruit keeps this smoothie thick and creamy!
Did you freak out a tiny bit about the carrots? Don’t! They deliver all their beta carotene-y goodness to this drink without tasting like a glass full of carrot. Its subtle sweetness pairs perfectly with the juicy pineapple-mango-orange combo while the banana adds a touch of added sweetness. Almond Breeze’s Almondmilk Coconutmilk Blend adds a kiss of nuttiness and keeps this smoothie creamy and satisfying.
