This weekend was filled with all sorts of Fall goodness.
A ride out to Holy Hill
My first cool weather run-fastest 3 miles postpartum 🙂
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 🙂
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.
