Carrot Cake Smoothie


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
Ingredients:
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!
