Summer of Smoothies (week 2): Carrot Cake Smoothie

Carrot Cake Smoothie | Very Culinary

I’m always seeing different types of sandwiches converted to pizzas and soups. Like the Rueben, or BLT, or Cuban. And I thought, why couldn’t I take some popular pies or cakes that I love, and convert them to smoothies? Like carrot cake. 

I thought the ingredients would translate really well. And it did!

Mmm maybe I’ll have this as breakfast AND dessert…and if I top it with a puff of cream cheese frosting, you won’t tell, right?
