Carrot Grapefruit Smoothie (scd, paleo)



As the weather gets warmer I always look forward to summertime smoothies. I felt ├╝ber lazy the other day and actually went to a smoothie shop and customized a somewhat Paleo-friendly version of a smoothie. It cost $8 and I could tell their juices were from concentrate, i.e. a box. Blah. I'll take a homemade version of any meal, anytime. Try this smoothie recipe if you are a fan of grapefruit. It's a little tangy but very refreshing.

Ingredients:

3/4 cup fresh grapefruit juice
1/2 apple
4 mini carrots*
1 large medjool date (pitted)
1 1/2 cups ice

Directions:

Throw all of the ingredients in a high speed blender, like Vitamix (putting the ice in last.)
Blend on high for about two minutes, or until completely smooth and four mounds form on top of the blender.
Enjoy.

*mini carrots are very small adult carrots (not the traditional "baby carrots" found in most grocery stores, 4 would be equivalent to about one large regular carrot)

  1. Is there something wrong with baby carrots?
