Orange Banana Smoothie Recipe by Deliciously Sprinkled

JUST SOME SMOOTHIE MAKING TIPS:

 USE FROZEN FRUIT: I like to use frozen bananas instead of ice cubes in my smoothies. And to make it super easy, I just  buy the frozen bananas in the frozen section of my grocery store, because I’m all about making things quicker and easier. If you don’t have frozen bananas, you can use 2 ripe bananas and add 1 cup of ice cubes instead.

FILL UP YOUR BLENDER: When putting the ingredients in your blender, layer the ingredients softest to hardest (frozen). So for this orange smoothie, add the orange juice, greens, yogurt, and honey first. Then add the frozen bananas and carrots. Lastly, top with the orange zest.

Yield: Serves 2-4
