Can you use almond milk in place of water?
Yes, that should be fine.
Can these ingredients excluding the water all be portioned and frozen? Easy meal prep for me?
Yes, portioning and freezing should be fine. Please refer to Note 4 below the recipe for more details.
Hi, this smoothie sounds delicious. I am having bariatric sleeve surgery and looking for easy healthy smoothies and this sounds perfect.
I only have one question. Do you cook carrots before blending?
Hi Judi, the carrots are raw, not cooked before blending. Let me know if you have other questions!
I have used raw carrots in smoothies, but I prefer to cook them, to make them a bit easier to blend. Of course, it you have some sort of super duper blender, it may blend the raw carrots just fine.
Very Nice! Thank you.
Can you substitute yogurt for banana. I’m not a fan of banana’s.
Yes, that would work. The smoothie will be a little thin without banana, but the yogurt will help thicken it.
Nice combination of Banana, Orange, Pineapple and Carrot.
oh I love carrot in a smoothie, it adds such a nice complementary flavor to fresh cut fruit! This feels very refreshing and tropical.
