Description

The key to this smoothie is blending it super smooth, so don’t be scared to let the blender run for 30-60 seconds!


Ingredients

  • 1 cup milk (I prefer nondairy)
  • 1 cup frozen mango cubes
  • 1 small clementine, peeled
  • 1 cup peeled and grated carrots
  • optional: 1 tablespoon almond butter, rolled oats, and/or hemp seeds
  • optional: 1/4 cup plain or vanilla Greek yogurt

Instructions

  1. Add the milk, mango, clementine, and carrots to a blender. Add any optional ingredients.
  2. Place the top on the blender. Starting on low and working up to high, blend until very smooth or for 30-60 seconds.
  3. Serve cold.

Notes

I like to use grated carrots in this since they are easier to blend very smooth. You can use chopped carrots, but let the blender run until smooth.

I like to use grated carrots in this since they are easier to blend very smooth. You can use chopped carrots, but let the blender run until smooth, which may take up to a full minute.

If you are making this and you aren’t sure if your blender is that high powered, you may want to soak the grated carrots in hot water for a few minutes, then drain them before adding to the blender. This will soften them and make them blend more easily.

To make this super creamy, add the optional yogurt.

Serve in small open cups or a reusable pouch for babies and toddlers.

If serving this for a meal, add a muffin, toast, cereal, eggs, or another fav food to round it out.

You can use a small orange in place of a clementine if desired.

Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 24 hours.

I prefer nondairy milk as it is less likely to separate. Find my guide to Toddlers and Milk here.
