Happy Monday! Get your Monday smoothie on with this Orange Carrot Protein Smoothie.
For the past month, my go to breakfast meals have been smoothies. I’ve made this Orange Carrot Protein Smoothie for Ken and I a couple of times. It’s sweet – but not too sweet – thanks to the fresh carrot juice and sweetly scented fresh oranges. It’s dairy free thanks to Blue Diamond Almond Breeze Almond Milk. It’s provides protein, thanks to plant based protein powder.
It’s perfect for Monday mornings because we all need a boost of energy (hello Vitamin C!) and some healthy proteins to begin the work week, am I right?
The inspiration for this recipe comes from the BlendTech recipe booklet that comes with the BlendTech blenders. We bought a BlendTech about a month ago, after our old blender died. It’s a beast. And it’s seen many a smoothie made with Blue Diamond Almond Milk. Why almond milk? Because this gal’s lactose intolerant. And because almond milk tastes GOOD!
This smoothie tastes good, too. Grab a straw and I’ll share one with you. Or you can easily make on in less than 5 minutes. Enjoy!
