This post brought to you by Bolthouse Farms. All opinions are 100% mine.

B is a huge fan of Blothouse farms smoothies so I was happy to work with them on a campaign, I was given a bunch of coupons to try them out. There were so many flavors to chose from, 30+ flavors to be exact, my grocery store didn’t have them all otherwise I would have been picking and choosing for hours!

Being the coffee lover I am I gravitated to the Salted Caramel Coffee and the boys were drawn to fruit juices. We had gotten a huge thing of the carrot juice because they didn’t have any small ones and we wanted to try it. Over the last week we’ve been drinking the juice but we’ve also been using it in recipes, we’ve been making yummy smoothies with fruit and vegetables we’ve had on hand and I also decided to try my hand at Creamy Carrot Soup. Traditional Carrot Soup uses carrots but this one uses Bolthouse Farm 100% Carrot Juice and is amazing!
