This no-sugar added carrot smoothie combines carrots, pineapple, and dates for a bright and nutritious treat. Use leftover carrots for this quick and easy breakfast or snack!
Ever consider a carrot smoothie? It’s a sweet way to use up extra carrots or to add a big pop of color and nutrition to your morning smoothie. When I shared this recipe on Instagram, a few people reached out to say they never thought of using carrots in a smoothie because they didn’t believe that they’d blend well. Well, the do! I shredded them here, but you can also use sliced carrots in a high-powered blender.
This smoothie needs no added sugar. The carrots and the Medjool date provide plenty of sweetness and flavor. I love using dates in smoothies. They not only add natural sweetness but also fiber and a delicious caramelized flavor.
