Orange Carrot Smoothie

Orange Carrot SmoothieSo far, this is my favourite smoothie. I came up with it while searching through my Flavor Thesaurus, wanting to pair carrots with something different. The Flavor Thesaurus is one of my favourite reference books. It helps pair foods that go together based on taste to help you make recipes. Here is the link. It’s basically my Bible! When I looked up carrots, I found oranges and hazelnuts make a good combination. Sounded strange but I gave it a shot anyways and WOW! What a flavour buster!!!! Plus, it gives me all my beta carotene for the day. Gotta love it!

Here’s the recipe:

2 large carrots

1 large orange

1 Tbsp hazelnut butter

½ cup water

    My husband has ha a smoothie EVERY morning for his breakfast for the past 15 years. I’m just starting to make my way into a smoothie transition. Just this morning I made one with bananas, almond milk, greek yogurt, chocolate protein powder and honey. It was delish! I like all the ingredients in your Orange-Carrot recipe. Will have to give it a try. :)

    Hi there- great site. I went to Bastyr in Seattle for my nutrition degree. and i LOVE food.
    I’ve been using a lot of turmeric with my carrot juice… great tasting and anti-inflammatory.
    I’ll give the hazelnut and carrot a try.

    Oh! This is my one of my new favourite drinks! I was planning to write about it too! I don’t use hazelnut butter in mine, but I imagine that must give it SUCH a nice taste!
