Andrea’s Favorite Smoothie

I make smoothies everyday for Scott and I to have with our lunch.  We’ve been doing this for almost a year now and love it! Back when I was doing the oh so boring Food-Log style entries, you could see my smoothies everyday.  Now they only get busted out for special occasions. ;)

This particular smoothie combo is my very favorite. It’s clean tasting and very filling.  I don’t have it too often because I want to keep it special and I also save it for the times when I feel like my bod could use some very straight up clean eats.

You know those times when you’re feeling just a bit rundown.  Or maybe you had too much wine/beer/Boones the night before because it was Aunt Sally’s 80th birthday and how can you turn down an 80 year old on their birthday? Even if that would put the tally up to your 6th glass of Wild Island.

Maybe you just had a really bad dining experience the night before where the salmon was farm raised, the asparagus just showed up from Mexico covered in Shed Spread, and what should have been Himalayan rice was actually Uncle Ben’s quick fix.

Basically you just feel like you need to work some stuff outta your system and replace it with some clean stuff.  You dig? This smoothie is the ticket.  At least for this bod.

Andrea’s Favorite Smoothie

  • 1C Carrot Juice
  • 1C Unsweetened Cranberry Juice
  • 1C Soymilk
  • 2 handfuls of spinach
  • 1-1.5 Frozen bananas
  • Frozen Blueberries (about1/2C)
  • Frozen Pineapple (literally like 5-6 pieces)

Blend in a blender until smoothie and creamy.

The liquid measurements are exact but the others are not.  Don’t overload too much on the spinach or you run the risk of the smoothie being gritty.  Kale works here as well.  The pineapple I keep to a minimum because I just want it to brighten the flavor a bit, I don’t want to feel like I’m in the tropics.  The soymilk along with the frozen fruit make this a very thick smoothie, like a shake.

This makes a lot of smoothie!  It’s enough for Scott and I each to have a big glass plus extra for Scott to have some more.  Both of us love it!

Everyday smoothies start off with the same liquid combos, just replace soymilk with water and change up the frozen fruit from time-to-time.  Smoothies never get old to us!

Enjoy guys!

P.S. Stop thinking about Wild Island!

  1. I love your smoothies!!! I think I may just make an appearance next time you pull out the blender to get a taste of Andrea’s Amazing Smoothies! :)

  2. I make smoothies to bring to work for breakfast a couple of times a week. I always put spinach in, but haven’t tried carrot juice. I’m definitely going to give your recipe a try. I really love your blog!

  3. Your smoothie sounds delish! I tried throwing a carrot once in my blender with the regular smoothie ingredients and it was a disaster. I need a juicer before I will try that again. It was super carrot-pulpy. You know this girl loves a good smoothie! :)
