Food Friday: Smoothies

January 28, 2011

I asked for (and got) both the Ninja Prep Master (Professional!) and a personal blender for Christmas. I actually just wanted one, but now that I have both I see the need for both. Family and individual smoothies! No, it’s not really the season, but I’ve been really enjoying these as meal replacements as snacks. I’m sure as the weather warms up we’ll experiment more, but this week, this recipe has been keeping me healthy in my personal blender (and sometimes multiplied for the big Ninja pitcher):

Hidden Carrot Smoothie

1/2 cup carrot juice
1/2 cup vanilla soy milk
2-6 ounces yogurt (I’ve been using a half of a small container of some greek yogurt I got at Costco)
Frozen peaches (I generally add 3 slices)
Other frozen fruit (I throw in either a few strawberries or a handful of blueberries)

I find this sweet enough that I don’t add any sugar, but you can sweeten if you need.

 I’m sure we’ll revisit smoothies again later (when the high finally gets above the 40s), but enjoy for now!
