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!
total time: 5 minutes
yields: 1 large serving
1 cup frozen whole strawberries
1 ripe banana
1 medium orange, juiced
3/4 cup almond milk
blend all ingredients together in a blender until smooth.
