It’s officially spring!! I’m so excited that the weather is finally starting to get better and we are one step closer to summer! So this week’s Smoothie Saturday recipe is a refreshing glass of tastiness perfect to cool you down on those warmer days.

It’s kind of like a pimped up orange juice. I actually can’t believe I just wrote pimped up – I’m pretty sure I’ve never written that before. But let’s go with it, you’ll know what I mean when you try it.

If you’re concerned about the fact the recipe contains carrot, don’t worry – it works.

Unlike most of my smoothie recipes, this one doesn’t have any particularly strong flavours that stand out because I was going for a simple taste that refreshes you – something that would hit the spot on a hot day. And as we’ve been fortunate enough to have some lovely weather recently I can safely say (after some delicious taste testing) this is definitely refreshing!
