Carrot And Apple Smoothie Recipe| Smoothie Recipes

If its just me for breakfast at home, i always turn to a smoothie. Its easy, quick and filling all at the same time, guilt free. I sometimes make a smoothie to supplement a light breakfast. Its usually when i make a sandwich or some kanda batata poha. I made a sandwich a few days back and made this smoothie along with that. This is a milk free smoothie but its filling because of the fruit involved. It can be made ahead and chilled to be enjoyed as a drink any time of the day.

Put apples, carrot and celery along with some sugar in the extractor.
Add 1/2 c water to this and blend until smooth.
If you are doing this in a blender, remove and strain.

  1. I hesitated to make this because I don't have an extractor. However, I steamed the apples and carrots and then used an immersion blender. Mine didn't look as bright orange as the picture but maybe my carrot wasn't big enough. Regardless, the taste was very good. My kids slurped it down quickly and asked for more. Next time I will double it. Thank you
