My kiddos are tired of green smoothies. Not that they don't like them, they're just ready for variety. Yes even kids, who might eat chicken nuggets every day until they're 27, occasionally like to change things up.
So I made the smoothie orange instead of green. Go me! And they slurped it down. That's a win!
Here's what I did:
1 orange, peeled and seeds removed
2 carrots, or the equivalent in baby carrots, roughly chopped
1 fresh mango, seeded and peeled
1/2 c frozen peach slices
1/4 c pumpkin puree
1/2 inch fresh ginger, peeled
1 cup coconut milk, or non-dairy milk of choice
Add all to blender and process on high until smooth. Add more milk if needed to reach desired consistency.
All smoothies are best enjoyed cold! If you lack any of the above ingredients, feel free to sub in whatever orange or yellow produce you have on hand. Sweet potatoes, squash, corn, be adventurous!
This recipe is nut free, egg free, dairy free, soy free, and delicious.
