Carrot Cake Smoothie

Y’all, this turned out surprisingly well.  Really, really good, actually.  I’m not going to lie and say “it tastes just like Carrot Cake”.  But, for a healthy smoothie, it’s pretty darn good.  I think it’s the little bit of Greek Yogurt that does it.  It just hints of a cream cheese frosting.

Seriously, try it.  I think you’ll be as pleasantly surprised as I was.

Carrot Cake Smoothie

  • 2-3 medium carrots (peeled and chopped)  Is peeled the right word?
  • 1 cup Almond Vanilla milk
  • 1 frozen banana (chopped into 1″ slices)
  • 1 Tbsp Chia seeds or powder
  • 1/4 cup Greek Yogurt
  • 1/2 tsp Coconut Oil
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla
  • Dash Cinnamon
  • Handful of ice cubes

  1. Throw all ingredients (but only 1/2 cup of Almond milk) into a blender.
  2. Whirl
  3. Add the rest of the Almond milk until you reach the consistency you want.

Pretty good, right?  A perfect cool treat after a run.
