My Vegan Cardamom Carrot Cake Smoothie tastes exactly like carrot cake batter but is packed full of heart healthy, anti-aging, digestion-aiding ingredients. Gorgeous heirloom carrots, hearty pear and fresh ginger combine with frozen bananas, pineapple, gluten free quick oats, vanilla protein powder, creamy cashew milk, a splash of bright lemon and a medley of warming, anti-inflammatory spices to create a nourishing, spring-inspired smoothie. The next time you're craving the essence of carrot cake, indulge in this sweet and spicy smoothie to treat yourself to some incredible health benefits!
Chop / mince (if necessary) and add all fresh ingredients, along with your frozen ingredients to your Vitamix (or similar).
Pour the Vegan Cardamom Carrot Cake Smoothie into a glass and garnish with fresh toppings. Some of my favourite include diced dried apricots, toasted walnuts, toasted unsweetened shredded coconut, pineapple and a dash of cinnamon.
• Make sure to blend the ingredients together thouroughly, since the carrots can be difficult to break down.
• If you want your smoothie to be completely silky in texture, you can omit the oatmeal, but it will taste less like cake.
