Star Ingredients

The charm of this colorful carrot smoothie is in the taste, as well as in the ingredients. Packed with vitamins and antioxidants and loaded with fiber. It’s not just tasty—it’s a plant-based powerhouse for your health!

Gathered ingredients for this carrot smoothie recipe with labels.

Carrots: The addition of carrots gives this smoothie its bright orange color and unique flavor. Fresh garden carrots will taste the best, of course. But, try to avoid using baby carrots (which aren’t as flavorful). If you use organic carrots, you can keep the peel on (just rinse in cool water first) because that’s where most of the nutrition is.

Mangos: This tropical fruit gives the smoothie added sweetness, vitamins A and C, as well as fiber, without using refined sugar.

Bananas: A perfect foundation for any smoothie recipe, bananas create a creamy and sweet smoothie with tons of satisfaction. Make sure to peel and freeze it beforehand for a thicker, cold smoothie.

Orange Juice: Freshly squeezed juice is the best choice for this recipe, but feel free to use ready-made if you’ve got that handy. Sub with tangerine juice for an extra tangy flavor.

Plant Milk: Any dairy-free milk will work in this bright and beautiful beverage. For an extra creamy consistency, look to oat, soy, or cashew milks.

How to Make This Carrot Smoothie

In less than five minutes flat, you’ can’ll be sipping on this bright-as-sunshine smoothie with carrots. Simply gather, measure, blend, and sip. It’s amazing how easy it is to make such a delicious recipe that is overflowing with such healthy ingredients!

Step 1: Measure out the fruits, vanilla, orange juice, and plant milk. Add to your blender.

Step 2: Wash, peel (if you wish), and slice the carrot. The thinner the slices, the easier your carrot smoothie recipe will blend. Add to blender.

Finally, Step 3: Blend on high for about 1 minute, or until smooth and creamy. If the consistency is too thick, add a little more orange juice or plant milk. If the consistency is too thin, add more carrot or frozen mango pieces to the mixture. Enjoy!

Smoothie Tips and Suggestions

Sure, carrots can sometimes sound boring, but they’re far from bland in taste or texture. When added to this carrot smoothie recipe, you’ll simply be blown away! This pretty root veggie recipe is perfection just as it is, but there’s always a little room for adjustment or additional serving suggestions.

  • Go Go Garnish! If Inspector Gadget were in charge of your smoothie, you’d get fabulous cookie cutter shapes of carrots, bananas, and mangos added to the side of your glass or skewered onto a fancy telescoping toothpick.
  • Calling All Carrots: If you’d rather use fresh carrot juice instead of blending up the carrot, use ¼ – ½ cup less orange juice and add in ¼ – ½ cup of carrot juice. If the smoothie’s texture is too thin, you can add additional frozen mango cubes as needed.
  • Allergen Friendly Fixes: This recipe is already gluten-free, but if you are sensitive to nuts or soy, you can always make a simple plant milk substitute. Choose a seed-based milk (like flax, hemp, pumpkin, or sunflower), rice, or oat milk instead.

Prep Time 5 minutes
Total Time 5 minutes
Servings 1 16 ounces

Equipment

  • High Speed Blender

Ingredients

  • 1 large frozen banana
  • 1 cup frozen mango
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract, or to taste
  • 1 cup orange juice, freshly squeezed, if possible
  • 1 cup plant milk, your choice
  • ½ cup finely sliced carrots, about one medium carrot
  • ¼-½ teaspoon  apple pie or pumpkin spice, optional, adjust to taste

Instructions

  • Measure out the fruits, spices, orange juice, and plant milk. Add to your blender.
  • Wash, peel (if you wish), and slice the carrot. The thinner the slices, the easier your smoothie will blend. Add to blender. Measure out and add the spices you’d like to use and add these as well.
  • Blend on high for about 1 minute, or until smooth and creamy. If the consistency is too thick, add a little more orange juice or plant milk. If the consistency is too thin, add more carrot or mango pieces to the mixture. Serve immediately and enjoy!

Notes

  • For a fun flavor twist, add ¼-½ teaspoon apple pie or pumpkin spice, adjust to your taste.
  • Not Sweet Enough? Use sweetened plant milk or ready-made orange juice, which tends to be sweeter than freshly squeezed. 
  • For a cute and colorful garnish, use a small cookie cutter to cut a shape out of fresh mango, banana, and carrot and add to a fancy toothpick. Or, make a slit and add to the side of the glass.
