sunshine smoothie


over the weekend i found a leftover banana that was getting pretty ripe on the counter and a cara cara orange that had been sitting in the fridge for a few days.  in an effort to use them up, i decided to make a smoothie.

i juiced the orange and put the juice in a blender with the ripe banana.  i added some frozen strawberries and some almond milk.  the result was a delicious and refreshing smoothie.

it was so dreary outside (i am sick of winter!!!) and this smoothie was so tropical and cheery . . . so i decided to call it a sunshine smoothie.  the weather may have been gross outside, but this smoothie sure brightened up my day!
