I have to admit that I’m pretty picky when it comes to smoothies. Not all smoothies are made the same especially when you order them out. My favorite place in Houston/Austin for a smoothie is JuiceLand as the smoothies are made with organic fruit and vegetables, no ice and no fillers. Plus, I love how they easily adapt to make the smoothies FODMAP safe for me without up-charging me for every single ingredient. I can’t afford to buy a smoothie from JuiceLand every day so I make my own low FODMAP smoothies which are pretty dang good!
My Vitamix blender has been one of my favorite wedding gifts that we received as it’s powerful enough to break down hearty vegetables like carrots without an issue. My favorite juice is a combination of carrots, oranges and spinach so I thought why not make that into a delicious smoothie! I hope you’ll love this smoothie as much as me. 🙂
Also, this time of year I feel like I’m constantly dodging people who are sick, washing my hands constantly and upping my Vitamin C intake. No one has time for a virus that can take you out for the count for a couple of days. I much prefer getting my vitamins through food than by supplements which means sticking with FODMAP safe choices like oranges, lemon, kiwi, and red and orange bell peppers.Print
A smoothie packed with vitamin C in the form of oranges, spinach and carrots!
- Add all of the ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth. This may take 2-3 minutes as the carrots need to be broken down.
