Carrot Cake Smoothie Recipe

0  comments

I just finished a five-day juice detox, and let me tell you, my body is thanking me in so many ways! My family and I like to detox when we start getting that sluggish, draining, no energy feeling. Usually, after the holidays, when we have stuffed our self with all the delicious holiday food. It helps restart our metabolism and gets us motivated for a healthy new year.

We always stick to juicing because that’s what works for us—this time around, I overestimated when purchasing carrots for the detox. Let’s just say I had some leftover carrots I did not want to go to waste. The first thing that came to mind was moist carrot cake! Nope sorry wrong answer. We are trying to keep it healthy here, Lucia!

I thought of something I could make to replace a meal, like breakfast or lunch—filling, light, and healthy. My husband suggested a smoothie and “add protein,” he said. Wow! Thx, babe, for the idea! Since all I could think about making with the carrots was carrot cake. I opted for carrot cake without the cake, add the smoothie, YUM!

A healthy way to start your morning or a filling lunch that will hold you over till dinner. A combination of carrots, bananas, pineapple, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Blended with almond milk and protein powder, topped with walnuts and shredded coconut. Sounds so good you might want to have another for dinner.
