Carrot Cake Power Protein Smoothie

As a young girl, I would always ask my mom for a carrot cake on my birthday. When I transitioned to a vegan diet ten years ago, I wondered how I could recreate a plant based carrot cake alternative. Around the same time, people began to ask me where I would source my protein from. This smoothie is like cake in a bottle and packed with protein.

Carrots are high in beta-carotenes, potent anti-oxidants that have the immune supporting benefits of vitamin A. Nuttzo, hemp hearts, Viva Vanilla Vega Protein Powder, and almond milk, fuse into a rainbow of protein power, that gives the sweetness of the spices an earthy taste.

Enjoy it as post workout refresh, since it is both delicious and a nutritious way to start the recovery process!

Ingredients:

  • 2 two medium carrots (chopped)
  • 1 tablespoon Nuttzo
  • 1 tablespoon hemp hearts
  • 1 tablespoon Viva Vanilla Vega Protein Powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 cup water
  • Shredded coconut flakes, to garnish
  • Raisins, to garnish

Recipe:

In the blender, add the smoothie ingredients, and blend until smooth. Garnish with shredded coconut flakes and raisins. Drink immediately and enjoy!
