Lately I have been using carrots a lot adding in everything I bake and cook. Probably, my mind would be fixated on that. But, smoothie was never in the picture. I really wanted to try it in a smoothie by blending few ingredients and bending few rules :). Then came a perfect day, a darn dull and dreary snowy day nudging me to bring some soothing contrast.
In fact, since I’m a December soul, I love snowy and rainy days. But, I need something exciting and contrasting at the same time to brighten up and make it lively inside the home. Something like experimenting a new recipe would be the best fit. Sometimes, I divert my attention purely on some crazy new things mostly food 🙂 And I just pursued it wholeheartedly.
So while it was heavily snowing in Atlantic Canada, I managed to blend a glass of delicious smoothie 🙂
1 cup mashed carrots
1/2 cup peach slices
1/2 cup yogurt
1 ½ cup of filtered water
Hint of vanilla
Few ice cubes
Sweetener of your choice
Pinch of salt [Optional]
In a blender, add all of the ingredients. Don’t add the whole amount of water in the beginning. Start with little amount of water. Once everything blends well and in smooth puree form, add the rest of the water (if desired) and extend the consistency. Enjoy,
