If you love carrot cake, you will love Carrot Cake Smoothie, this tastes exactly like carrot cake even with frosting flavor! Check out how I invented one amazing HEALTHY and delicious smoothie!

Carrots, Ginger, Banana, Oatmeal, Cinnamon, Nutmeg, Almond Milk, Raisins, Yogurt, Honey

Carrot & ginger have vitamins A, C, K, fiber and is great for the stomach, lungs, and overall health.

Vitamins B6 & C, potassium, and fiber in a banana are great for stress relief, energy, and bone health. Almond milk is great for weight management, muscle power, and bone health.

Oats are great for cholesterol, energy, weight control, and bowel function. Pecans contain antioxidants and are great for weight control, lowering cholesterol, also great for heart and brain health.Raisins have fiber and antioxidants. Raisins are great for bone health and digestion.

Honey or Agave nectar are natural sweeteners that are a healthier alternative to sugar. Cinnamon and nutmeg are antimicrobial (can kill mouth germs) and are both wonderful for your health. Cinnamon and nutmeg make this carrot cake smoothie have such great flavor!

The yogurt is the perfect addition that makes this smoothie taste exactly like a carrot cake with frosting.

  1. Hi, I’ve been watching some of your videos and making some of your smoothies…yum. Thank you for your efforts to spread the word about healthy eating and great smoothies. I was wondering if you knew the calories in this smoothie…I want to make it but it sounds pretty heavy…. although all the ingredients are “good” for you. Thanks.

    • Hi Kathy! Thank you for watching my videos and leaving me a lovely comment. I believe the smoothie is apx 300 calories and about 10 grams of fat. Due to this recipe having no flour, sugar, egg, cream cheese, oil, or milk… it makes it a bit healthier to consume as a smoothie instead. Plus the ingredients are fresh as opposed to baking out the nutrients. You can omit the raisins to cut back on calories and fat :)
