Orange Carrot Smoothie

Hello again! Life has been busy lately. In the last three months, I:

• Got married!

Wedding
Wedding 2
• Graduated with my Master of Public Health

MPH Graduation
• Became a Certified Personal trainer (through NASM)
• Became a Certified Health Education Specialist
• Went on my honeymoon to Istanbul and Santorini!

Istanbul
Santorini
• Moved out of my house in Houston and drove a Uhaul truck to Winston-Salem, North Carolina, where my husband is going to Wake Forest Law School

And I’m flying back to Texas tonight after spending two weeks in New Hampshire and Maine. Whew!

I wanted to pop in and share a recipe I’ve repeated many times this summer, in large part due to the addition of a Vitamix to our kitchen (yes, they really are that good)! One of my favorite things to do with the Vitamix is mix up my usual green smoothies and use vegetables that I couldn’t necessarily throw into my old immersion blender smoothies. This smoothie is simple, refreshing, and gives you a good serving of both fruits and a veggie. It’s also a bright and summery color! With smoothies, nothing is too exact, so add more or less of any ingredient as you see fit. I hope you enjoy!
