Carrot-Pineapple Smoothie

Yesterday I thought I’d have a nice, healthy breakfast so I made a carrot pineapple smoothie from Real Simple that I’ve wanted to try.

So, even though it’s very hard for me to wake up any more than 30 minutes before work starts, I got up early and made myself breakfast.

(adapted from Real Simple)

makes 1 serving

¼ cup chopped carrot
½ banana
¾ cup frozen pineapple chunks
1/3 cup pineapple juice
(1/2 cup ice optional)

It’s super easy. Ready?

Blend all ingredients until smooth.

I didn’t add the ice, because I took my smoothie to work and I thought the ice would melt and dilute my smoothie by the time I sat down to enjoy it.

Anyway, because my work is a guaranteed diet-ruiner (I make up words…), my healthy breakfast turned into a…healthy breakfast with a not-so-healthy side dish (apple cider doughnut) and my weekly dose of People mag.

Today… I ate two more doughnuts. They were stale, but I still ate two (and a bagel). Now that’s embarrassing.
