Carrot cake smoothie

As the year winds down I think about what 2018 may bring. I truly would love to fast forward my life a few months but unfortunately I have to sit back and relax. On the meantime, I just have to keep planing and be positive and drink my carrot cake smoothie for now!

I truly can’t wait to announce all that it is to come for the blog in a few months. So excited to open that chapter of my life.

Anyways, I actually made this carrot cake smoothie a while back and never got to post the recipe in the blog or making it again for that matter, however, this morning, when I got up I had about 2 lbs of carrots sitting in the fridge that I didn’t know what to do with so I decided to make the smoothie.

The taste is out of this world. I actually doubled the batch and stored some in the fridge without the flaxseed meal since otherwise it becomes gel like. When we are ready to consume it we will add the flaxseed meal.

That is what happens when you add flaxseed meal to smoothies, it becomes gel like. Unless you are about to drink it right away I suggest to add it later.

I think this carrot cake smoothie mixture can also be frozen as popsicles. I think this summer I will actually do a batch and try it for the first time.

Anyways, I wanted to start with the healthy recipes for the blog. I know many of you go on a healthy diet/lifestyle the beginning of the year so I want to give you a few ideas.

I really hope you get to try this carrot cake smoothie. It has become one of my favorite smoothies to date. A great way to start the day.

Enjoy!

  1. very nice. i love carrot cake oatmeal.. so good and adds a touch of sweetness from the carrots. nicely done.

  2. Wow this looks amazing! Think I’ll have to give it a go and link to you (again!) on my blog :)

  3. Lots of oatmeal! Do people in Spain eat it? I just confirmed that people in Germany don’t eat it (it translates to “oat slime soup”) unless they have gastrointestinal issues or are really old. It’s so strange! I don’t eat it either but I still admire your pictures. :)

  4. OMG, your are too funny!! But you are from the USA right? They have oatmeal as a staple breakfast all over the place…..I did not know of such dish until I came here, as many people choose to have that for breakfast.

    Indeed it is sort of slimy, but rather tasty and good :-)

  5. Yummm :) I’ll be trying this out soon. I love oatmeal but even I’m getting kind of bored of having the same thing every morning lately – I need to try something new :D

  6. Of course I’m from the US! I’m from Texas. :) I’m just living over here until *somebody* finishes their studies!

    So if you didn’t know about oatmeal before you came to the US, and Germans don’t know about oatmeal unless they’re old / have gastrointestinal issues / read American food blogs, then… I don’t know. They have it in Sweden! And Scotland. Maybe it’s just a weird country-to-country thing. I just spent 20 minutes researching a food I don’t even eat. I think it’s time for bed. :)

  7. So that is good….you are coming back!! I though you were going to be there and not come back at all. I am sure you are happy about that even though it may not be next month :-) You have that to look forward to!!

    Yeah weird thing this oatmeal business :-) I do like it a lot though.

  8. Oh goodness no. I wouldn’t be able to go on like that. And it’s more like in a few years. For now, I have to bake and go on vacations to have something to look forward to. :)

  9. Gracias, Myriam!! Yo también soy española, De Madrid y vivo en Michigan con mi marido. Voy a probar esto porque me parece buenísimo y decididamente, voy a seguir tu blog!
    Un beso desde Michigan, compatriota.

  10. Almudena,

    Dejame ver como te sale vale?

    Gracias por visitar mi blog :-)

  11. Would this work with Steel Cut Oats instead of old fashioned? That.s what I have and don.t want to make it if it will ruin it!

    • I think it would work however the consistency will be different though. I don’t think it will ruin it but it will just be different, edible however :-) Thanks for visiting my blog.
