Carrot cake smoothie is a creamy smoothie with the flavors of carrot, ginger, nutmeg, cinnamon, walnuts, banana, and yogurt. Only healthy ingredients that are vegan and gluten-free.
To make this smoothie you'll need just a few simple ingredients, a high-speed blender, and a few minutes. That's the thing with smoothies. They come together in no time, and that's how perfect breakfast is made in my opinion. Quick and easy. Most people don't have much time in the morning or don't want to spend much time in the kitchen in the morning. I know I don't. That's where smoothies come in.
For this recipe, it's important to have a high powered blender that is powerful enough to blend raw carrot. To make it more filling you can add protein powder. In that case, use vanilla protein powder.
