- Buying and using frozen carrots adds convenience, helps reduce waste, eliminates the need to add ice to your smoothie, and helps make a smooth consistency.
- Pre-measure carrots, peel and cut banana pieces, put them in small storage bags or other containers ahead of time, and store in the freezer so when you’re ready to make a smoothie the ingredients are ready to go.
- If you use a non-dairy milk alternative, choose a product fortified with calcium and vitamins A, D, and B12.
*Customize your smoothie with your choice of milk, flavor-boosting protein powder, and your favorite optional sugar substitute. If you must avoid dairy, soy, or peanuts, try one of our suggested alternatives.
