Carrot Apple Smoothie

Friends, hello! Let's have a little refreshing beverage, shall we?

Carrot Apple Smoothie
Makes 5 cups, 3-4 servings

1 apple, sliced (no core)
4 carrots, ends cut, and sliced into 2-inch pieces
Juice of 1/2 lime
1/2 cucumber
10 ice cubes + more if desired
1/2 cup orange juice

In a blender, combine all ingredients. Blend until smooth. Remember to find the blender's lid and be sure to attach. (I did not.) This will prevent orange cabinets (sticky). Drink and be merry.

  • Low calorie, sweet, no added sugar
The cucumber and apple make green and red confetti in the smoothie!
 I'm coming down from the high of graduating and realizing I'm no longer a full-time student. It's strange, really. But -bam- time to find a job. Wish me luck.

Happy eating!


  1. This one sounds interesting. Refreshing, Im sure. I'm out of - well - apples, cucumbers, lime and orange juice - soooo, I'll try it once I head to the grocery store.

    Do you like it? I assume it's citrus-y! :)

    Good luck on the job hunt. Anyone would be lucky to have you!

  2. PS Cucumbers and apples not peeled, correct?

  3. Correct...99.9% of the time, I leave the peel on. The more nutrients, the better. Happy Memorial Day, weekend!
