Fruiveggie Smoothie

My freezer is full of all kinds of stuff. A little baggie of over-ripe banana, gallon bags of frozen tomatoes, some shredded carrot left over from making wild rice soup. Tonight, while my kids clamored for a snack and I pondered the healthfulness of their dinner (pancakes) and how to get some nutrients into them, I made use of all those little bags of what-not cluttering my fridge. I threw it in the blender and viola....a V8 Splash inspired smoothie.

 1 frozen banana
1/2 cup frozen blueberries
1/2 cup frozen shredded carrots
1/2 cup frozen tomato chunks
enough orange juice so it is easily blended. Blend until smooth.

Serve to unsuspecting children.
