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!

    What a great way to incorporate veggies into a beautiful fruit smoothie! I can’t get my daughter to eat carrots at home, so this might be the best way to do it!

    You are inspiring me to do a cleanse, perfect timing in the summer, looks really delicious! Nettie

    Oh this smoothie sounds wonderful – a ripe pineapple and banana together are incredible – adding a carrot to the mix is just brilliant! Congrats for making it thru one whole day of a juice cleanse!

    Wow! This smoothie looks right up my alley! I haven’t done much with adding carrots to my smoothies but I will have to try this one! Pinning! Good luck on your cleanse! I will be cheering you on from the blogosphere 🙂

    sounds like a delicious combination

  7. August 6, 2014 at 11:04 AM #

    Sounds delicious and I truly understand.I not only got out-of-shape, I now have health problems that have put me on a varied but strict diet at least, for the time being.ALL THE DELICIOUS FOOD! Hang in there, Ashley!

    I’ve never put carrot in a smoothie. Now I have to!

  9. August 6, 2014 at 12:22 PM #

    What a great combo of flavor in this smoothie! Very healthy, and very tasty sounding. Thanks for this.

    Interesting combo of flavors! Sounds very healthy!

    A great way to start the day!

    I love the addition of the carrots – makes it a little extra nutritious and gives it great color! I’m looking forward to trying this smoothie!

    I love the addition of carrot here! sounds delicious!

    Good luck with the juice cleanse!! I don’t think I could do it – so I’m impressed you made it a day!! This smoothie looks delicious – love that you snuck some carrot in!

  16. August 6, 2014 at 6:45 PM #

    I love that this is probably super sweet but still nutritious. Yum!

    Good luck on your food cleanse diet. I know how you feel about solid foods so need that whole chewing thing to feel satisfied. Great little smoothie and I bet it was tasty. Take Care, BAM

    I love smoothies! Does the fruit hide the carrot taste for the most part?

  19. August 7, 2014 at 5:33 AM #

    Such a great idea to have more veggies! I already love coconut and pineapple smoothie so I bet adding carrots will not make a huge taste difference. Thanks for the idea!

  20. August 7, 2014 at 8:21 AM #

    I love carrot juice in a smoothie, this looks só refreshing!! xoxo

  21. August 7, 2014 at 1:06 PM #

    I could never do a juice cleanse. I try to focus on eating healthy the vast majority of the time so I don’t feel like I have to do a cleanse. Because passing out is just not fun. But I wish you luck and would totally love this smoothie. Yum! Yum!

  22. August 7, 2014 at 4:47 PM #

    Love a healthy AND delicious smoothie! Sounds refreshing!

  23. August 7, 2014 at 7:01 PM #

    Yum, this smoothie looks so healthy and delicious! I love the carrots and that pretty color.

    I love carrot smoothies!

  25. August 8, 2014 at 9:10 AM #

    Ashley, I LOVE the color of this drink, but then orange is my favorite color. 🙂 And I’ve tried a juicing cleanse before, and I have to admit I wasn’t very successful. But, that is not going to stop me from adding this to my smoothie list. Pinned!

      Thank you so much Kristi! And extra thanks for the pin! 🙂

    Looks really healthy and refreshing,
    unfortunately i’m allergic with pinneaple, so i’ll omit it

  27. August 11, 2014 at 3:18 PM #

    Good luck with your juicing! Love the color of this smoothie! Carrots must give it a great flavor.

  28. August 11, 2014 at 5:24 PM #

    these smoothies look delicious.. definitely recreating the recipe in my kitchen!

    I never really thought to add a carrot in a smoothie but now it sounds perfect! With a bunch of carrots in the garden being picked right now this has to happen!

  34. August 15, 2014 at 4:45 PM #

    LOVE this! I stumbled and pinned! 🙂

  35. August 16, 2014 at 9:46 PM #

    I’m starting a cleanse and can have everything in this recipe, except the orange juice. Could I sub with water? Or blend one serving of an actual orange/ mandarian orange instead?

    • July 13, 2015 at 1:43 PM #

      Hi Nicole! You can use any liquid! Water would work…or coconut water maybe?
