Carrot Clementine Banana Smoothie

When you get home from work after a long commute and are so hungry you could eat a horse, what do you do? Do you reach for whatever is the closest to you in the pantry? If your answer is yes, then I suggest trying fruit and vegetable juice. Juice has come a long way with the ever improving quality of blenders and juicers available at a reasonable price. Long gone are the days when most of the fiber had to be thrown out. Now whatever you put in the blender / juicer is what you end up with in your glass. You can actually see the yummy goodness.


I was one of the late adopters to juice. But lately I have gotten pretty ambitious and like to try out new combinations. This one was a new one for me. The only change I would make when I make this smoothie again would be to use just half a banana.

You will need
1 carrot, peeled and chopped
2 clementines, peeled
1/2 banana, peeled and cubed
1/2 cup Greek yogurt
1/2 milk
1/4 cup ice cubes
a pinch cinnamon

Add all the ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth.


Enjoy!
