Ingredients

  • 2 ripe bananas peeled and cut into 1 inch pieces ( frozen for at least 2 hours)
  • 1 cup orange juice
  • 1 orange peeled and cut up into chunks
  • ¾ cup almond milk or low-fat milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 carrot peeled and cut up into 1 inch pieces
  • Ice if you are not using frozen bananas you will want to add a few cubes of ice

Instructions

  • Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend to combine. (If your blender has a smoothie/frozen drinks setting use that)

Frozen bananas add a layer of creaminess to this smoothie, so if you have time, I recommend freezing for at least 2 hours or overnight. If not, you’ll want to add a few cubes of ice to this smoothie.

    * for a fun twist and a different taste, omit the carrot...tastes just like an Orange Julius (which tastes just like a creamsicle)
