A delicious carrot smoothie packed with carrot juice, a frozen banana and protein powder. This combo tastes like liquid carrot cake!
I’m not sure today is the best day to post a smoothie recipe, given the low temps the US is enjoying (it’s 9° here!), but I’m on a smoothie kick so it’s happening.
Back in December I teamed up with Bolthouse Farms and they sent me some of their products to try out. Isaac and I throughly enjoyed the eggnog — we made holiday drinks by spiking it with rum from our honeymoon and I also tried out these Eggnog Overnight Oats. I love overnight oats and the eggnog made them so creamy and delicious. In addition to the Bolthouse holiday flavors, I received their 100% carrot juice. I immediately thought it would be perfect to make smoothies with and started dreaming of different concoctions and this carrot smoothie that tastes like carrot cake is one of them.
If you don’t have carrot juice on hand, you can still make this smoothie. One option is to break out your juicer and make some fresh carrot juice and the other option is to toss raw, peeled carrots into the blender. The second option will only work if you have a high-powered blender like a Vitamix and your smoothie might taste a little pulpy but it will still be delicious!
If you make this carrot smoothie please be sure to leave a comment and star rating down below letting me know how it turned out. Your feedback is super helpful for the EBF team and other EBF readers.
