When it’s hot outside, I enjoy the occasional fruit smoothie—but I don’t want it to be too huge or too heavy like the ones you find at most smoothie shops. That’s why I prefer to blend up my own snack-sized smoothies. This one is packed with fruit, veggies and protein, so it’s super satisfying and so delicious. Carrot and pineapple = quite the power couple. (Make room, Kim and Kanye!)
