Healthy carrot cake smoothie: your answer to a sweet tooth breakfast (or dessert!)
Smoothies might just be my new favorite dessert.
If you’re thinking dessert? whaaa?? Go checkout this Healthy Double Chocolate Milkshake.
Smoothies are a great way to satisfy your sweet tooth the healthy way and sneak in veggies too!
This carrot cake smoothie is so healthy that it could be breakfast or dessert. We had ours for dessert, but if you’ve got a sweet tooth first thing in the morning, this is your smoothie.
This recipes serves two, or one really really big smoothie (hah.)
You’ll need a high speed blender to get that smooth taste (I love my blendtec.)
The ingredients are: raw carrots, frozen bananas, milk, greek yogurt, cinnamon, nutmeg, maple syrup, and ice.
So simple and I had it ready to blend in less than five minutes!
As you can tell from the photographs, the recipe ends up being more pink than orange. This will depend on how dark your carrots are I guess.
My whole family loved having this for dessert.
I tend to always add ice to my smoothies for texture, but this is optional.
It’s really just a matter of personal preference.
Mmmmmm. I’m already craving another glass of this!
It came out perfectly smooth and tastes like a carbon copy of my favorite carrot cake recipe, but in smoothie form.
I love using carrots to sweeten juices and smoothies, so I love the sweetness that 3 carrots adds to this recipe.
