Hello again! Life has been busy lately. In the last three months, I:
• Got married!
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!
Orange Carrot Smoothie
• 2 large carrots, peeled
• 2 small oranges, peeled (and de-seeded if necessary)
• 1 banana
• 1 apple (I use pink lady)
• Approx. ½ cup of water or milk
• A few ice cubes
1) Place all of the ingredients in your blender and blend until smooth. With a Vitamix, start off on a low speed and gradually increase the speed.
