Carrot Cake Smoothie

What’s better than a big slice of carrot cake? A Carrot Cake Smoothie with the same flavor but with a boost of leafy green goodness.

Here at SGS we like taking our favorite desserts and sweet treats and turning them into a healthier green smoothie. Case in point, this Carrot Cake Smoothie.

The thing that makes carrot cake so yummy is that blend of sweet carrots, spices (especially ginger and cinnamon), and creamy frosting. Well, this carrot cake smoothie does not contain creamy frosting. But it does include almond milk. Almost the same, right? šŸ˜‰

For me carrot cake isn’t carrot cake without pineapple. Mmm! Carrots and pineapple are a match made in cake heaven.

Why You Should Blend With Ginger

Ginger is one of the most powerful anti-inflammatory foods. The spicy, warm flavor touches just about every cuisine around the world. It makes everything better, including a warm mug our famous Morning Tonic first thing in the morning.

Ginger is a time tested natural remedy for boosting the immune system to combat everything from colds to stomach aches and nausea, to acting as a natural pain reliever and digestive aid to help relieve gas, and indigestion. There is even some evidence that ginger can help relieve menstrual pain. Ginger helps improve blood circulation and keeps blood sugar levels in check. You can also receive a natural boost of energy from ginger.

The beauty of ginger is that it can be used fresh or dried, juiced, or as an oil and you’ll still reap all of the benefits. And it’s easy to blend in your smoothie!

Carrot Cake Smoothie vs. Carrot Cake

I’m not going to tell you that you have to swap the ā€œcakeā€ for a nutrient-packed smoothie. Of course there is room for a big slice of carrot cake! But I also like to look at my daily meals as a chance to pack in as much plant-based nutrients as I can. If my green smoothie happens to taste like carrot or red velvet cake, so bet it.

    Four stars- used baby kale,soaked raw almonds and half an avocado and the remainder as listed was much better for my taste.
