I thought sharing a healthy smoothie/drink recipe was totally appropriate today as I’m in the midst of attempt #3 at a juicing cleanse.  I tell you, I am not cut out for this.  Especially since my blogging “job” entails hours a day staring at food pictures and/or reading about food in one form or another.  So this is me being selfish and posting something where it’s not absolute torture to write about or look at 🙂  Need. Solid. Food. Now.  Seriously though, I’m really hoping I can do it this time.  Day 1 is complete and I’m not feeling uncontrollably hungry yet.  In the past, I haven’t been able to go longer than one day.  #willpower.

This healthy and refreshing smoothie drink is super delicious any time, but I definitely thought it made for a great energy boost in the afternoon!  Don’t let the orange color fool you if that’s not your thing (personally, I like crazy-colored drinks) – this particular smoothie tastes sweet and not like vegetables at all!

Tasty, healthy & delicious.  Enjoy!
