When I lived in Halifax, I used to frequent a little juice bar called Pete’s. I shouldn’t say frequent, because I was usually too cheap to spend $6 on a smoothie, but I went there sometimes and stared at the drink board, then walked away. I occasionally bought one. That’s a more accurate description of how it went down.

One of the smoothies they sell has just three ingredients; carrot juice, banana and yogurt. Sounds kinda simple and boring, right? I thought so too. I must have been in a simple and boring mood the day I finally decided to try it. Turns out it’s pretty amazing.

The next day I bought a bag of carrots, got out my juicer and made my own version of it. The frozen banana is a great way of cooling the smoothie without adding ice. You can use store bought carrot juice for this recipe if you don’t have a juicer. I prefer the fresher taste of juicing carrots at home. It’s also less expensive. Remember how I said I was cheap? You can also play around with the yogurt if you wish. Vanilla yogurt would be a nice substitute, or frozen yogurt.
