Sweet Carrot Smoothie

My mother purchased 5 lbs of carrots for me, and I don’t want them to go to waste. I’ve been trying to use them up with soups and salads, but I started incorporating them into my smoothies too. Here’s my first easy sweet carrot smoothie; it tastes like orange sherbert!

Paleo Pear Smoothie

Sometimes I want a milkshake, so I make a creamy smoothie to satisfy my craving. Plus, pears are in season, which makes me so happy! They might replace the recent summer obsession that I had with peaches and plumcots.

Tips: (1) If you have an unsweetened coconut yogurt, you can add a hint of vanilla to your smoothie. (2) You need a high-powered blender like a Vitamix. If you don’t have one, then you may need to add a little dairy-free milk to make it blend well.

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup soaked cashews (overnight)
  • 1 banana
  • 1 ripe pear
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla coconut yogurt (I used So Delicious unsweetened vanilla)
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 cup ice (2 handfuls)


Directions

  1. Soak your cashews overnight. It makes the smoothie creamy and is a great source of protein!
  2. Add all ingredients to your Vitamix. Purée and serve with a dash of cinnamon on top if desired.
  3. Enjoy!
