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 for a Twitter chat on healthy eating 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 from Julie of Peanut Butter Fingers. 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 Cake Protein Smoothie is one of them.
I’m sure many of you, like me, are back on track with healthy eating goals this January. If so, this smoothie is a great fit — perfect to sip on after a workout or for breakfast. And although it has the carrot cake flavor, it’s way healthier than cake. 🙂 Enjoy!Print
I used bottled carrot juice in the recipe but feel free to make your own fresh carrot juice as well. I’m sure it would taste amazing!
