Carrot Cake Smoothie

carrot cake smoothie

I'm so excited to share today's recipe with you! This incredibly indulgent and creamy smoothie tastes exactly like carrot cake but is a healthy option! It packs in two of your five a day and is an excellent way to satisfy any sweet cravings. It's hard to get across just how good this tastes- so you're just going to have to trust me on this one and give it a go. If you're a fan of classic carrot cake then you won't be disappointed!

Three great health benefits: boosts immunity, high in antioxidants, promotes healthy skin

Makes 1 large glass
Enjoy immediately

Ingredients: 
1 carrot, grated
1 orange, peeled and chopped with any large pips removed
1 tbsp Cinnamon Pecan Nut Butter (see the recipe here)
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
1/4 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp vanilla (I used vanilla bean paste)
1 tbsp maple syrup
300ml almond milk

Note: You can, of course, substitute the Cinnamon Pecan Nut Butter for another nut butter of your choice and simply increase the amount of ground cinnamon added, to taste. The caramel flavour of the Cinnamon Pecan Nut Butter really does work well though! 

Method: 
1) Blend all of the ingredients together in a blender until smooth and creamy. Enjoy immediately.
