Morning Sunrise Smoothie Recipe

I love love love fresh juices and smoothies. They are a fun, delicious way to get more vitamins and nutrition into your diet. Kids love smoothies, too! Kids think they are getting a fancy dessert but mom knows they are loading up on good for you nutrition.

This is the smoothie recipe I have been making a few times a week now and my son loves it just as much as I do.  It's especially high in vitamins A and C and has less than 150 calories

I have a juicer that I use to make the fresh carrot and ginger juice. If you don't have a juicer, you could use packaged organic carrot juice from the store.

Morning Sunrise Smoothie Recipe

  • 8-10 organic carrots (or approx 12 ounces packaged Organic carrot juice)
  • 1 inch piece of ginger
  • 1 orange, peeled and white center parts removed
  • 1 cup chopped peaches (fresh or frozen)
  • 1 banana (fresh or frozen)
  • 6 ounces greek yogurt
  • Ice cubes
1) Juice the organic carrots and ginger.

2) Add the carrot/ginger juice (or 12 ounces packaged carrot juice), orange segments, chopped peaches, banana and greek yogurt to a blender. Pulse on high until frozen parts are broken up. Blend on high until well blended and liquifed.

3) Add ice cubes until smoothie reaches desired consistency.

(Makes approximately 4 servings)
