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!
Is this breakfast? Is it dessert? I’ll leave that up to you. Either way, it’s delicious! And you don’t need to wait an hour for it to bake ;-)
