I started with some already bottled carrot juice from the grocery store. BUT if you like making your own vegetable juices, by all means, make your own carrot juice first.
I haven’t tried it but you could try using soft cooked carrots as well rather than juice. If carrots aren’t quite your thing, you might like this Beet Smoothie instead or check out this great list of other smoothie recipes.

Carrot Smoothie FAQ
How should I store this Carrot Smoothie?
I always suggest drinking the smoothie right away but if you need to make ahead or have leftovers, I’d recommend pouring the smoothie into an ice cube tray, freeze, then pop out the cubes into a glass and defrost in the fridge.
Can I substitute anything for the banana?
I personally think frozen banana slices are the best option but if you really want to substitute something else, I’d suggest yogurt or even cottage cheese.
What other things can I add to this smoothie?
Typical smoothie additions like chia seeds, protein powder, etc. always work. Fruit like apples, strawberries, blueberries, oranges, or mango would be good. You could even add other vegetables such as beets, avocado, kale, or spinach.
Can I make this into a smoothie bowl?
Yes! Pour the smoothie into a bowl rather than a glass and add your favorite toppings like granola, oats, chopped fruit, etc.
