Carrot Cake Smoothie

Dessert for breakfast….WHY NOT!

My favourite childhood dessert was creamy carrot cake! My best!

I love being able to create healthy versions of the textures and flavours that I so adore and that my body craves! This is why healthy food can be so much fun…you can recreate the traditional unhealthy versions of recipes in different ways, healthier ways!

Oh and I love carrots!!! Carrots are full of beta carotene which is a potent antioxidant and great liver cleanser!

P.S: I love to eat my smoothies with a teaspoon, try it 😉

So I chucked the following into my blender: ( I use the Hamilton Beach brand)

  • 1/2 grated carrot
  • 2 tbsp natural Greek yogurt
  • 1-2 tbsp ricotta cheese
  • 1/4 cup walnuts
  • 1 serving vanilla protein powder or alternatively LSA mix or 1 egg
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1-2 tsp stevia/honey/maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla bean powder ( if you have)
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • handful ice cubes

I topped each glass with bits of ricotta, more grated carrot, walnuts and cinnamon.
