This is a perfect spring smoothie recipe that tastes like a huge slice of creamy carrot cake. My daughters loved this smoothie and kept asking for more "cake". Delicious and nutrient packed...it doesn't get much better than that.
Carrot Cake Smoothie
1 cup shredded/ grated Carrot
1 Tbsp Almond Butter
1 Tbsp unsweetened Coconut (shredded)
6 Dates, pitted
1 Banana, pealed and frozen
1 Apple, cored, sliced and frozen
1/2 tsp Cake Spice (cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, allspice, cloves)
1-2 cups Almond Milk (unsweetened vanilla is my favorite)
Add all of the ingredients to the blender except a little bit of the carrot to top smoothies and almond milk. If you don't have a cake spice blend you can use part cinnamon and part nutmeg. Whizz until blended and creamy, adding the almond milk to reach the desired consistency. This may take a bit longer than you expect because of the dates but give it a few minutes and it will be perfect. Top with shredded carrot and serve with a straw (it's more fun that way). Makes about 3-4 medium smoothies. Pour leftovers in popsicle molds for some awesome frozen treats!
