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!

Orange Carrot Protein Smoothie

Orange Carrot Protein Smoothie


  • ¾ C carrot juice
  • ¼ C Blue Diamond Almond Milk
  • 1 medium orange, peeled
  • ¾ C frozen pineapple chunks
  • ¾ C frozen mango
  • ¼ C unsweetened coconut flakes
  • ½ scoop plant based vanilla protein powder
  • ¼ C old fashioned oats


  1. Add all ingredients to your blender in the order listed. Blend until smooth, about 1-2 minutes, depending on the strength of your blender.


For the Blendtech designer series blender, use the smoothie setting. There may be a slight texture to the smoothie - shredded and flaked coconut typically don’t completely pulverize in a blender.

  1. I drink carrot juice all the time, but I don’t know why I haven’t turned it into a smoothie yet! Definitely trying it soon!
