The BEST Carrot Cake Smoothie


Crazy-Carrots

Run out of ideas for what else to do with these crunchy orange beauties other than eating them raw and tossing them into salads? We love this underdog veggie for their crunch factor and how they pack a nutritional punch.  Carrots are full of vitamins and minerals which are good for your health and your green smoothies.

We love adding carrots to our green smoothies for the health factor and we also think carrots make our green smoothies taste great. We usually add raw sliced carrots to our blenders but we know that sometimes blenders just can’t take the heat from blending up their fibrous, crunchy goodness.

If you’ve tried adding raw carrots to your hard-working machine and it just can’t get past those chunky little bits, then this one’s for you.

Roasted carrots in green smoothies

The magic in the oven turns hard fibrous carrots into sweet and caramelized goodness. This magic trick might be the thing your lovely blender is asking for.

Keep roasted carrots in a sealed container in the refrigerator and you can add a handful of roasted carrots to your smoothies all week long.


Quick Tip** You can also steam chopped carrots for about 5-10 minutes as a quick and easy way to add them to your green smoothies while being kind and gentle to your blender.

Shauna's Carrot Cake Smoothie Recipe with Ginger5 reasons we are crazy for carrots

1. Kick Cancers A** : The chemical compounds in carrots have shown to decrease the risk of certain cancers and other chronic illnesses.

2. Fountain of Youth: With carrots’ high amounts of antioxidants, they are a great all-nautral anti-aging veggie.

3. Eye Like You: Carrots are high in Vitamin A, which help protect the health of your eyes — helping you see for years to come.

4. All Natural Toothbrush: That’s right. By chomping on these bad boys, they help clean your teeth and gums — no toothpaste required.

5. Easy on the Wallet: Available in most areas all year round, carrots are one of the cheapest veggies you can find in the produce section, which helps you keep more of your hard-earned moolah.

    I have a Vitamix, works perfectly, but I think I read somewhere that carrots have more nutrients when cooked. Is it correct? Love your work. Thank you

    You’re right, Maria! A study at the University of Arkansas back in 2000 found that cooked carrots had higher levels of antioxidants. Raw or cooked, you’ll be reaping major health benefits by blendin’ with carrots!

    Lo there,
    I’m interested in trying and reaping the benefits of green smoothies.currently i have carrots, asparagus and kale in abundance. However, my problem is that i cannot quite try out kost of your smoothie recipes as i am diabetic and have to watch my fruit intake ( an apple or banana a day is enough for me to go on with, according to my doctor).hence i was hoping that you might perhaps have a smoothie/juice recipe incorporating only veggies, that i could follow?I don’t intend to use these drinks as a meal replacement–i like eating, but this means that i am never full after lunch, and i guess i was hoping that a having a low calorie green smoothie with me will serve spas a good snack to keep me full between meals and yet give me the nutrients i need.

    Hope you can help!

    Hi Js,

    Thank you so much for reaching out. We definitely agree with continuing to work with your doctor to determine if the natural sugars in our recipes are ok for your health.

    Anyone tried frozen carrots instead of fresh? Wondering if frozen carrots might be gentler in the blender?

    Hi Rebecca,

    Grated frozen carrots is a great option! Any bigger may be pretty tough on your blender.

    Carrots contain Vitamin C, Vitamin B6, thiamine, folic acid, potassium and magnesium. Raw carrots are one of the best natural cures for indigestion; chewing carrots increases saliva and helps digestion by providing the necessary enzymes, minerals, and vitamins. Chewing on a carrot after a meal can also freshen your breath

    I was think instead of orange juice can we use Apple juice instead

    Hi Maggie,

    Of course! Our recipes are here to inspire you, so please don’t feel like you need to follow them to a T. We love switching up our liquid base options, including a variety of fresh squeeze juices! The thing to keep in mind about fruit juices is their high sugar content. When using fresh squeezed fruit as a liquid-base, be sure to use plenty of raw leafy greens and low glycemic fruits (berries, peaches, apples) to balance out the sugar content. You can also add water to your juice base— like 1 cup fresh squeezed juice and 1 cup water.

    Is it canned coconut milk? Fullfat coconut milk, like with fat solids? Or similar to soy, purchased with milk alternatives? I have a similar recipe, but it uses oat milk. Thank you! 🙂

    Hey Kim,

    We usually always grab the full fat canned coconut milk. However feel free to choose the option that is most appealing to you.

    Enjoy!!
