Smoothie of the Month: Strawberry Carrot Pineapple from SGS

Last month I joined a 30-day green smoothie challenge created by the two lovely ladies from Simple Green Smoothies. The challenge was to drink green smoothies every day for a month. To help with that Jadah and Jen were sending the participants new smoothie recipes every week along with a shopping list that had all the necessary ingredients. I have been drinking green smoothies (almost) every day for over a month already before the challenge started, so that wasn't new to me. But I was really looking forward to try out new recipes, because my green smoothies have been pretty much the same every day. I wasn't as active as I was hoping to be in the challenge, as I didn't follow all of the recipes they sent me, but I've tried most of them. I found so many new delicious combinations! And there was so much variety, there were sweet, spicy, sour, creamy and even chocolate smoothies! I would definitely suggest all of you who would like to add a healthy habit to your lifestyle to join in the challenge, next one is in January and you can sign up here, it's free!

So for this month's smoothie I wanted to share my favorite recipe from the October challenge. I enjoyed a lot of their recipes, but this Strawberry Carrot Pineapple smoothie was truly a special one. It has a little weird color, which comes from the mix of the colorful fruits and veggies, but it is delicious! I've never thought of adding carrots to a smoothie before and I was pleasantly surprised to find out that it adds a really great taste to it. I am definitely going to make this smoothie over and over again as well as add carrots to my other smoothie recipes.

Strawberry Carrot Pineapple Smoothie (serves two)

2 cups fresh spinach
1 cup unsweetened coconut water
1 medium sized carrot
1 cup frozen strawberries
1 cup pineapple (fresh or canned)

Blend coconut water and spinach first, then add the rest of the ingredients and blend until smooth. Enjoy!

Hope you love this smoothie and if you have other smoothie recipes that include carrots I'd love to know!
