Carrot Cake Smoothie


For those of us who love carrot cake, this is a healthy flavorful way to start the day.  Or try it for a mid-afternoon pick-me-up.

Ingredients:
1 medium banana, peeled, diced and frozen
1 cup diced carrots* (about 2 medium-sized carrots), peeled if you prefer
2/3 cup almond milk
1/2 cup plain or vanilla Greek yogurt
2 teaspoons maple syrup (or your desired sweetener)
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
pinch of ground ginger
pinch of ground nutmeg
optional toppings: extra grated carrots, toasted coconut, toasted walnuts
Directions:
1.  Add all ingredients to a blender and pulse for 30-60 seconds until smooth.
2.  If the smoothie is too thick, add an extra 1/4 cup of almond milk to thin it out.
3.  Serve immediately, garnished with optional toppings if desired.

*If you don’t have a high-powered blender, you may have to blend this smoothie for a bit longer.  Or you could also shave the carrots (instead of dicing them) beforehand to make blending easier.
