A simple and delicious smoothie that will make you think you’re having dessert. This carrot cake smoothie tastes just like my favorite sweet treat. It’s loaded with vitamin A, vitamins C, potassium, and fiber. Add some protein powder and toss in some walnuts and you have yourself a well-rounded meal. Perfect for breakfast or post workout. Pin this recipe for easy reference! It’s a keeper, my friends.
