#WeightLossRecipe: Carrot Cake Smoothie
This healthy Carrot Cake Smoothie is made with lots of fresh carrots and delicious traditional carrot cake spices.
• 1 medium banana, peeled, diced and frozen
• 1 cup diced carrots* (about 2 medium-sized carrots), peeled if you’d like
• 2/3 cup almond milk
• 1/2 cup plain or vanilla Greek yogurt
• 2 teaspoons maple syrup (or your desired sweetener)
• 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
• pinch of ground ginger
• pinch of ground nutmeg
• optional toppings: extra grated carrots, toasted coconut, toasted walnuts
Add all ingredients to a blender and pulse for 30-60 seconds until smooth. If the smoothie is too thick, add an extra 1/4 cup of almond milk to thin it out.
Serve immediately, garnished with optional toppings if desired.
*If you don’t have a high-powered blender, you may have to blend this smoothie for a bit longer. Or you could also shave the carrots (instead of dicing them) beforehand to make blending easier.
