Delicious carrot banana Smoothie

If you haven’t hopped on the carrot-in-smoothies train, now’s the perfect time! All you need are a handful of simple ingredients and a high-speed blender. There’s no need to cook the carrots either – just toss them into the blender with the rest of the ingredients.

This healthy carrot banana smoothie boasts a creamy and slightly thick consistency, giving you the flexibility to enjoy it as a refreshing drink or in a bowl (you should also try this carrot cake smoothie bowl!) with all kinds of fun toppings like coconut flakes, raisins, nuts, and more.

For more veggie-loaded smoothies, give this broccoli smoothie (yes broccoli!) and green smoothie a try!

These wholesome drinks are the perfect, nourishing breakfast or snack for toddlers, kids, and you!

Ingredients

All ingredients laid out on a white countertop.

I am highlighting just the ones that need further explanation. The complete list is in the recipe card below.

  • Ripe bananas – You’ll want to use frozen banana for this, as they not only add sweetness but also make the smoothie extra creamy and cold, which my kids love.
  • Raw carrots – Peel and thinly slice them so that they blend more easily and quickly. They are an excellent source of vitamin A and contribute to that vibrant orange color.
  • Greek yogurt – Adds creaminess and a tangy flavor while amping up protein, healthy fats, calcium, and probiotics. You can use a non-dairy Greek-style yogurt. And if you have any frozen yogurt, this will be a great way to use it up. For extra flavor, try adding vanilla yogurt.
  • Milk – I love using whole milk for extra creaminess and fat, which is an essential nutrient for optimal brain development during the early years.
  • Peanut butter – adds nutty flavor which complements the sweetness of bananas and carrots. You can also use almond butter.

Step-by-Step Instructions

All ingredients in a blender.

Step 1: Add all the ingredients into a high-powered blender.

Step 2: Blend until smooth!

Variations

  • If dairy-free, you can use any non-dairy milk and yogurt of choice, such as almond milk or coconut milk.
  • Add 1/4-1/3 cup frozen cauliflower for an extra boost of nutrition! You won’t even taste it.
  • Add some seeds – hemp seeds, flax seeds, or chia seeds are a great way to make smoothies even more filling.
  • Desire a sweeter smoothie? Feel free to add more bananas, honey, maple syrup, date syrup, or even some soft dates!
  • If you prefer a thinner smoothie, add more milk.

Equipment

Using a powerful blender makes ALL the difference when making smoothies. You will get a perfectly silky smooth drink every.single.time!

I’ve had my Vitamix for 7+ years and it’s worth every penny! I use it to make all my blender muffinsdips/sauces, smoothiesveggie nuggetspancakes…there’s not a day that goes by when I don’t reach for it.

Storage

Transfer leftover smoothie to an airtight container, like this straw cup that comes with a lid. It’s the perfect straw drinking cup for toddlers and comes with a silicone cover for grip and to prevent breakage. You can see all of our favorite toddler mealtime essentials here!

Refrigerate and enjoy within 1 day. The smoothie may separate, which is to be expected with all smoothies. Give it good shake and enjoy!
