OK, so I missed National Carrot Cake day (actually, didn’t know there was such a thing, but I’m up for it – any excuse, lol!) And as I’m about to make a carrot cake birthday cake (Kathy Wilson, if you see this, I’m still using your recipe from our Geneva days, and it’s always loved – thanks again!) Anyway, as I was saying, I thought I’d give you this carrot cake smoothie recipe I found at GimmeSomeOven in honour of birthday cakes, lol!

So, back on topic, Ali at GimmeSomeOven says ..

It’s everything I love about the spicy, fresh-carrot goodness of traditional carrot cake. But of course, made with fresh and healthy ingredients you can feel good about enjoying for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or even dessert.

And it’s easy to personalize! If you’re a fan of nuts in your carrot cake, you can blend a few toasted walnuts into your smoothie, or use them as a topping. If you love coconut, you can also blend in some shredded coconut into the mix. If you like a super-sweet cake, you can add in more maple syrup to sweeten it.

And the best part for all of my fellow single friends out there? This recipe makes one simple single serving, so no worries about having to freeze and thaw leftovers. Just make a batch for yourself and enjoy every last sip.
