I don’t know if with this that with this carrot cake flavored orange smoothie I’m going to leave you with a super craving for carrot cake or thinking that I just lost it.
But you have to believe me when I say that this carrot flavored orange smoothie it is simply the best to start the day. Not all smoothies have to be green. Have you tried an orange smoothie before? This one is creamy, full of flavor and amazing nutrients. This smoothie is also the best because:
- Preparation. You can prepare it on the spot or the night before in jars, and you can prepare one or many. You close the jar, and the next morning you just blend it with the liquid you prefer.
- A flavor bomb. It really is a flavor and nutrition bomb. It is a complete and on-the-go breakfast. So you have one delicious and most nutritious breakfast in the world in a jar.
Ingredients for this orange smoothie
- Carrots. Look for fresh carrots that are crisp and brightly colored. Carrots just have to be washed, peeled, and chopped.
- Sweet potato or pumpkin or butternut. We almost never eat these vegetables raw, usually cooked. When we eat vegetables in different states, we take advantage of their nutrients in different ways. Like the carrots, these vegetables must be peeled and cut.
- Walnuts Put the nuts that you want, I like it with walnuts, but pecan or cashew work perfectly.
- Almond milk or oat milk
- Chia, dates, vanilla, and spices. Chia gives an incredible boost of nutrition with all its minerals and fiber. Dates are a superstar natural sweetener and they have many minerals. Spices turn dishes from normal tasty to super special tasty.
I know you can’t even imagine how this weird mixture of vegetables and nuts might taste, but you really have to believe what I’m telling you: it tastes like CARROT CAKE. Yes, that not so vegan or healthy carrot cake with cream cheese frosting. 😉
✎TIP This orange smoothie recipe works perfectly with the MEAL PLANNING trend. While you are chopping carrots for a soup or salad, chop some for your smoothie too. Or the other way around, if you're chopping carrots, sweet potatoes, or butternut squash for your smoothie, chop a bit more to cook with them. The day I made my orange smoothie I made my detox carrot soup.
💥IDEA Here is an idea so that you don’t get tons of dirty dishes to wash: •Measure the ingredients in the glass or jar that you are going to drink the orange smoothie afterwards. •I use the same jar where I keep the pre-prepared smoothie to measure the milk and then drink it.
