Oats Carrot Smoothie-Carrot Oats Smoothie Recipe

Smoothies can also be made with vegetables and they  can be as sweet and delicious as fruit smoothies. I tried making smoothie with oats and carrot and I loved it very much. It’s a great way to get the kids to eat vegetables and oats. As I have added oat and nuts to this smoothie, it is quite filling. When you are pressed for time, opt for healthy fruits or vegetable smoothie in the morning as it is a great way to kick start your day.

Oats Carrot Milkshake

How to make Carrot Oats Smoothie

Cook time - under 5 mins
Prep time - under 5 mins
Serves - 1

Ingredients needed 

Oats - 2 tbsp
Milk - 3/4 cup chilled
Carrot juice -1/2 cup
Dates - 3 (soak it in a little milk if required)
Almonds -1 tsp chopped
Pistachio - 1 tsp chopped
Honey - 2 tsp

Preparation 

Cook oats in half cup of water until thick and leave it to cool.

Extract 1/2 cup of juice from carrots.(if you can get red carrots, use that)
If you do not have a food processor, just grate 2-3 medium sized carrots, add 1/2 cups of water and grind it to a fine paste.Then filter it using a juice strainer. Extract as much juice as possible by pressing it with a masher.

Method

Combine cooked oats, dates, carrot juice, honey and little milk in a blender and blend until smooth. Then add the rest of the milk and blend for a few more seconds. Garnish with chopped nuts. Pour it into a glass and serve chilled.

This refreshing Carrot Oats Smoothie or milkshake (name it as you like) takes only a few minutes to prepare, and is ideal for a quick and light breakfast. It also makes a great snack.
