Since we got the Vitamix in January, we have bought a two 25 pound bag of carrots. The first bag was much easier to go through then the one we have now. Carrots are a great vegetable, but now that we aren’t buying them in baby carrot form, I am putting them less on salads, so I need to get on it, especially since we don’t have room to refrigerate them so they are in our garage and it’s nearing summer. I don’t want a whole bunch of rotting carrots!!
I figured I need to add them to way more smoothies, too. It’s fun once in a while to make smoothies solely based on color. Bananas blend well with all fruit and vegetable combinations and add the sweetness and creaminess I desire. I was going orange today.

- 1 mango

This was a nice thick, tasty sweet smoothie. I loved how creamy it is. If you want it a little thinner, you could add more water. It was a great fresh taste, and I had lots.
