Healthy Fruit and Veggie Smoothie

This is a recipe for a healthy fruit and veggie smoothie. This smoothie does not contain high protein, however it is a low calorie smoothie that I sometimes drink to satisfy a craving, or for a low calorie dessert option. The ingredients are pretty simple, and all you need is a blender. The smoothie I made creates 2 servings, each containing about 100 calories, 0 fat, and approx. 2g protein and 3g fiber.



Ingredients 

  • 1/2 Apple  seeded
  • 1 small orange
  • 2/3 of a cucumber
  • 1 handful of grapes
  • 1 thick slice of Pineapple (can include core)
  • 7 baby carrots (or 1 lg carrot)
  • Ice to taste

Combine all ingredients in blender and blend into a smoothie. Add ice for thickness/temperature desired.
