Smoothie – Day 25 – Carrot Cake

Usually I can’t be bothered to eat carrots. But since carrots are so good and healthy, I decided to incorporate them into my smoothie and make one that would taste like a carrot cake! Here is what I put in my blender:

  • Half cup almond milk
  • Half cup plain yoghurt
  • Two medium carrots, grated (I have to grate them as my blender is not strong enough to process chunks)
  • One frozen banana
  • One pitted Medjool date
  • One teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Half teaspoon cinnamon
  • Half teaspoon ground ginger
  • Half teaspoon ground nutmeg.

And it only remains to pour the smoothie into a tall glass, decorate it with grated carrot and desiccated coconut and enjoy the utter deliciousness!

Smoothies – Day 5 – Piña Colada

One of my favourite cocktails ever is piña colada, mostly for the coconut-pineapple combination. So here I am making a piña colada smoothie, by mixing all the ingredients below, except the last one, in the blender. The desiccated coconut is used for decoration once the smoothie is ready.

  • Half cup coconut milk
  • Half cup coconut water
  • One small frozen banana
  • Half cup chopped pineapple (frozen)
  • One teaspoon coconut butter
  • Half teaspoon desiccated coconut, for decoration
