Carrots cake is delicious, but don’t be fooled – carrots don’t necessarily make it healthy.
Traditional carrot cakes are loaded with added sugars, white flour and plenty of oil.
But this Carrot Cake Smoothie recipe has all the flavors of actual carrot cake, without all the added fats and sugars.
This shake packs a punch of flavor, thanks to the fresh carrots, naturally sweet pineapple, walnuts, and cinnamon.
Vanilla Whey Shakeology makes it extra creamy and adds a delectable vanilla flavor that’s a healthy alternative to the super sugary cream cheese frosting on top of most carrot cakes.
For this carrot cake smoothie recipe, you can use canned in juice, or substitute fresh or frozen pineapple chunks.
Alternatively, you could swap in a different type of fruit for the natural sweetness. Mango, apple, or pear would all work well.
Instead of walnuts, you could use any other type of nut (such as almonds or pecans) — or leave them out altogether.
Since the base of this shake is dairy-free almond milk, substituting Vanilla Plant-Based Vegan Shakeology would keep this drink completely vegan.
