Carrots in Smoothies?

We love experimenting with new ingredients for our smoothies so we landed on carrots! More often used in salads or roasts, carrots aren't what you think of when prepping your morning smoothie but we've tried the recipes below and love them! We think you will too :)! We like shredding our carrots before blending so we'll usually shred in batches and then freeze what we don't use for next time. Also, feel free to add a scoop of chia, flax or hemp seeds to any of these for that extra protein!
