Blueberry Carrot Top Smoothie recipe by Barefeet In The Kitchen

Did you know that you can eat the green leafy carrot tops? I’m not sure I’d want to dive right in and take a bite of a carrot top, but in a smoothie? Yes, please! I’ve been loving all the carrots in our CSA Boxes.

I simply toss the tops in a freezer bag and then include them in future smoothies. Plenty of fruit in a smoothie can hide plenty of greens.

My boys were thrilled to be my taste testers for this smoothie. I made the smoothie extra thick, because they wanted a smoothie they could eat with a spoon. Blend completely and then adjust the thickness with extra juice or water if you prefer a thinner smoothie.

    just made carrot top smoothie but the taste is chuncky from the green tops had to add orange juice but didn't seem to dilute it have to experiment a different kind of green juice lol;)

      It's possible that the blender simply wasn't powerful enough to puree it, or it wasn't blended for long enough. It shouldn't have been chunky at all and even my pickiest kids don't taste the green in this one. I'm sorry to hear that the smoothie turned out poorly for you.

    Now I know what to do with my carrot tops! I didn't have OJ but did have coconut water. Also used 1 T protein powder. This is really good!
