Carrot & Pineapple Smoothie

I love eating carrots in every ways.  Who doesn’t?  huhh!  It adds great flavor and beautiful color in all dishes.  It makes the best carrot cake that everyone loves.  It also pickles perfectly with other root vegetable like beets, daikon, and radish.  And even some people who like something wacky or think out of the box have come up with a genius idea of making carrot ice-cream.  I don’t know what it tastes like because I’ve never had it before, but it sounds awesomely good to me.
 In its vivid color, carrots are full of beta-carotene, vitamin A, B, C, minerals, anti-oxidants, and fibers that our bodies need daily; and besides that, it is so good for your eyes and skin.  Eating a cup of fresh carrots every day can make your skin looks, at least, 5 years younger than your actual age!  Don’t believe me?  hhmm…..   Let’s try if it works.   You have nothing to lose anyway.   Right?   
Here is another delightful smoothie make with carrots that mix perfectly with a tropical fruit like pineapple and the natural sweetness from OJ, plus nonfat yogurt for its creamy goodness.    I guarantee, you will not only like it, you will love it!    ^___^

what you need: 

¼ cup carrot chopped
¼ cup fresh or frozen pineapple
¼ cup orange juice
6 oz non-fat plain yogurt
½ cup crushed ice – forget about the ice if using frozen pineapple
Add a few drops of honey if you want more sweet

- In the blender, add all the ingredients and blend until smooth and frothy.
