I was looking for a smoothie that would hide the carrots for my 3 young kids. This was perfect, and I didn't even have all the ingredients on hand. I made this smoothie without the flax, dates, lemon or salt, but it was so delicious!

I liked this smoothie a lot. Let's face it...there are a gazillion smoothie recipes out there and they all start looking a whole lot alike after awhile. Not too many of them are orange and/or have carrots so this one is a nice addition to the repertoire. I omitted the salt because I didn't feel the need to add any more sodium to my diet than I'm already getting. I didn't use dates since I don't keep them around. I did add ice, as I always do, because I like the texture with it.

Wow, this was different! This is definitely not something for the new smoothie drinker. I cut the recipe in half and the only two things I did different was subbed dried prunes for the dates and I didn't have the flax seed powder to add. I also did peel the apple, as it didn't say. The thing I did not care for was the ingredients didn't seem to come together at all. It tasted quite tart from the lemon, a little like a banana and orange smoothie, yet kind of like thick carrot juice. I also thought the dark specks from the dried fruit looked a little Halloweenish mixed in the thousand island dressing orange colored drink. The ice saved it some. I drank part of one drink, no one else would touch it. I think it would have been much better like the first reviewer made it. I would leave out the lemon juice, salt, and dates.
