A smoothie for Every Season

This weekend was filled with all sorts of Fall goodness.

A ride out to Holy Hill


Football Games

My first cool weather run-fastest 3 miles postpartum πŸ™‚

And a smoothie?

Since the cooler temps have been rolling in, the Vitamix was being neglected and replaced with oatmeal bowls and egg bakes. Last week I was flipping through the Vitamix cookbook looking for recipes when I came across an Autumn treat: The Autumn Sweet Potato Smoothie. I was a little hesitant to try a sweet potato smoothie, but then I remembered how much I surprisingly loved the avocado smoothie and decided to give it a try. The verdict? Extremely tasty!

Autumn Sweet Potato Smoothie

  • 1 cup red grapes
  • 1/2 orange peeled
  • 1/2 sweet potato cooked and cooled
  • 1/2 medium apple
  • 1/4 cup fresh or frozen cranberries
  • 1/2 tsp ginger
  • 2 dates, pitted
  • 2 cups of ice

Blend to desired consistency and enjoy πŸ™‚

I’m off to get some cuddle time with my little girl. This week is my last full week home with her and then it’s back to work for mama :-/ On one hand I’m looking forward to getting back into a routine, but I know that I’m going to miss her like crazy. 8 weeks goes by way too fast.

      yeah! I came home from a run and my husband had her dressed πŸ™‚ haha! 8 weeks is a short time-6 weeks is minimum and 12 is max. Because Madelyn was a “blessing” πŸ™‚ I didn’t have enough time saved up to take 12.
