creamy orange smoothie

I think it’s time for a new smoothie combo.

And one that is not just for your busy weekday morning.

I made this on a Saturday….and that Saturday was a great day. 

The recipe is inspired by an orange smoothie I saw in Self Magazine. I was intrigued by the combination:

oranges + carrots + almond butter + turmeric 

This is an anti-inflammatory, vitamin-filled drink.

I prefer this after a long weekend run.  

And poured into a mason jar.  :)

Make this for your next morning or mid-day meal.  

It packs more punch than your average OJ.
