Carrot Cake Smoothie
Steaming the carrots beforehand is the key to making a velvety, luscious chunk-free smoothie. Carrots are the star of this smoothie, so use the best you can find (no baby carrots). Add more milk if you like your smoothies runnier and oats for for a more filling smoothie.
Servings 1 serving
- 1 cup carrots washed, peeled (if not organic) and chopped
- ½ cup water
- ¼ cup almond milk
- 1 small or medium frozen banana
- ¼ teaspoon vanilla
- dash of cinnamon
- 2 tablespoons oats optional
Combine the carrots and water in your smallest saucepan over high heat and cover. Once the water comes to a boil, lower the heat to medium or medium high and steam for 5-10 minutes, until carrots are easily pierced by a fork.
Pour carrots and water (save all those nutrients!) into blender and add remaining ingredients. Process until smooth.
