Liquid carrot cake

I had a smoothie for lunch today. 

I often find that smoothies are great meals when you have to eat in a jiffy. 

Why the rush?

I was interviewed on the 7 Day Challenge show today.  The first time I was interviewed was back in December, where I discussed holiday food.  This time, Bobby (the show’s host) asked me all about what it was like to train and run a marathon.  I didn’t ask when the show would air, but I’ll be sure to find out and post it here when it does. 

When the interview was all over,  I whopped together this…

 

Using these ingredients:

You could also add spinach, to make this a green monster.  But, I wanted to enjoy the pretty orange color of the carrots. It’s an orange monster!

My smoothie was delicious, but not extremely sweet.  You could always add a bit of the sugary substance of your choice if you want a sweeter smoothie. 

I also grabbed a handful of grapes and rushed out the door to make it back to work on time.

Brad and I are heading out to Bald Head Island for a wedding weekend.  Our good friends Jason and Jackie are getting married on Sunday afternoon, but there’s also festivities on Saturday night.  I can’t wait to visit one of the few places in N.C. that I’ve never visited.

Plus weddings call for pretty dresses…

    Out of curiosity, what kind of whey protein do you use? I’ve never used it before and always thought that it was just for bodybuilders, but all of your smoothie recipes look amazing, and I’d love to try it.

    • I love whey protein! I think it’s especially good if you don’t eat a lot of meat. But, I’m no dietician and there seems to be a lot of controversy over how much protein we actually need. I’m currently using Met-Rx, but once we finish our huge tubs I’m going to look into buying Jay Robb’s whey protein. According to their website, they only make whey from “farm-raised, pasture-grazed, grass-fed cows not treated with the synthetic bovine growth hormone rBGH”. It’s hard to find whey that can claim this.

  5. I love this idea! You are too cute with your pictures.

    Do you just use raw carrots, peeled and cut first? Or do you cook them somehow first to make them softer for blending? Thanks for the recipe!
