Tropical Smoothie

I recently got a VitaMixer so I have been trying different smoothie combinations.

Here is what you need:

1 Carrot
1 Orange
1/2 Cup of Pineapple
1/2 Cup of Papaya
1 Scoop of Protein Powder (optional)
1/2-3/4 Cup of Coconut Water
1/2 Cup of Plain Non Fat Yogurt

This smoothie, if done with all fresh fruit, is high in Vitamin C, A, Potassium and Manganese.

Now, with a VitaMixer, I can throw all of the ingredients in and blend. But, it will be different if you have a regular blender at home. You can blend everything except the Orange and the Carrot. You can either omit those items, juice them separately or use store bought carrot and orange juice.
