Carrot Wake-Up Smoothie


I make variations of this carrot smoothie almost every morning. This is my breakfast, but Hubby and the boys have it in addition to their breakfast and they love it. The natural sugars in the fruit allows additional sweetener to be omitted.

Prep Time:

2 servings


  • 2 cups fresh spinach, or to taste

  • 1 cup orange juice

  • 1 carrot, chopped, or more to taste

  • 2 tablespoons vanilla protein powder

  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh ginger root

  • 2 cups frozen blueberries


  1. Combine spinach, orange juice, carrot, protein powder, and ginger in a blender. Blend, adding frozen blueberries gradually and stirring if needed, until smooth.

Cook's Notes:

Use any kind of frozen fruit, juice, and protein powder of your choice.

For a thinner smoothie, add more juice as needed.
