Carrot and Apple Smoothie

Last Updated on



This is a recipe that can be put together within minutes, but what if you can’t get your pre-teen to down it? Don’t fret, here’s a quick fix. Involve him in the preparation process – the fact that he has made the smoothie is enough encouragement for him to gulp it down. Is there even a need to mention the health benefits of carrot and apple combined?



Serves Preparation Time Cooking Time

Ingredients

  • 2 large carrots, washed and peeled
  • 1/2 lemon, peeled
  • few leafs such as red lettuce or carrot greens
  • 100 g yogurt
  • 1 apple

Method

Step 1

Throw in all the ingredients in the juicer. Run it for 1-2 minutes. Drink immediately. Strain the juice if you want a smooth smoothie; however it is not recommended, since straining eliminates the fiber content completely.

Step 2

It is recommended that you peel the carrots otherwise it tastes a little bitter. If you want the recipe to be extra sweet, add one more apple.
