Blueberry Carrot Smoothie
I have to say, making smoothies is one of the highlights of my day. This blueberry carrot smoothie is definitely one of my new favorites. The possibilities are endless when making smoothies and they almost always turn out delicious. Wait, I will admit that one time I added green pepper and let’s just say that is one recipe I won’t be posting 😉
This smoothie is filled with carrots, strawberries, a bunch of blueberries, and greens. I use coconut water in most of my smoothies, but you can use regular tab water or none at all! I heard somewhere that ideally you will have as many, if not more, vegetables than fruit in your smoothie. It gives you more vitamins and not as many sugars. That made sense to me, so I have been sticking to that rule 🙂
Here are some of the health benefits to the ingredients in this Blueberry Carrot smoothie recipe:
Blueberries – These beautiful berries will also give your body an antioxidant boost. Blueberries are actually considered the king of antioxidants.
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.
Strawberries – These red beauties are loaded with vitamins, fiber, and potassium. As an added benefit – they are fat-free 🙂
Protein Powder – Helps keep you full longer and makes your smoothie extra creamy.

I hope you enjoy this Blueberry Carrot Smoothie with Greens Recipe as much as I do!
I do get asked from time to time what greens I use in my smoothies, and to be honest it’s really whatever I have in my refrigerator at the time. It may be a spinach blend, or a baby lettuce blend, or a Spring mix! I have not added kale to my blender yet, but it is on my agenda to try one of these days 😉
