Happy Monday to you! This week is a short week for me, and I LOVE it! We do not get to many holidays off, but we do have Good Friday off and it will be a good Friday! Next week I am going to Monterrey for work and I think I’ll be spending my Good Friday doing a little shopping. I am in dire need of some capri’s and spring shirts. Since last week I have been having fun with Smoothie Monday’s so today I have another smoothie for you today. I figured we better start the week off on a good foot or a nice rabbit hop! :)
I thought since this is Easter week that I would theme today’s smoothie after next weekends holiday. If you don’t celebrate Easter, that’s ok too, you can still have a nice healthy smoothie that is light, filling, sweet and has a little bit of a tropical flair!
I actually based this smoothie off of a Carrot Cake which I have been craving, but this doesn’t taste like carrot cake, it has more of a tropical taste to it do to the sweetness of the carrot juice and the pineapple. It’s very good! I picked up some fresh carrot juice from Trader Joe’s which was really tasty. I never had carrot juice before and I was impressed on how it tasted and how sweet it is. For my the milk, my Husband out of all people, found Dream Blends Almond, Cashew and Hazelnut Drink. I didn’t find that it had to much of a nut taste, but that could be because I’m still fighting off this cold. This drink will help with my cold too! It has 110% vitamin C!
This drink is perfect for a pick me up, a good dose of vitamins, which I’ll share with you in the recipe section and perfect for when you’re in need of a nice drink to cool you off.
