Simple Green Smoothies - Day 7

Better late than never! Today's smoothie is "Shauna's Carrot Cake" so it was quite fitting that I had this smoothie as a dessert today! (Although not on purpose - just didn't have time today until now!)

Anyway, I cheated a bit with ginger in a bottle. Gasp! I know! I also added some cinnamon and nutmeg since carrot cake needs that! Finally, I will say that I am SUPER impressed with my Vitamix! I used raw carrots in this recipe (as opposed to steaming them) and there are absolutely NO bits! As you can imagine I haven't used my Vitamix for much other than simple smoothies! This gives me motivation to do more soups and other juices now! Whoooohooo! Who knew? I've only had the thing for a year! 

Smoothie was OK. Going to give it my lowest score yet....a 3. Still ok, but not fantastic.
