Carrot Cake Smoothie
My hormones have been a little whacky since I got my second covid shot. I've been looking into holistic remedies and one of the things I found is raw carrots. So, I have been making this carrot cake smoothie 1-2 times a week.
This carrot cake smoothie is full of good for you ingredients and will keep you full for hours. I pack my smoothies with healthy fats like avocado and seeds. The seeds also have hormone balancing properties and natural protein. I always top my smoothies with granola for extra protein and crunch.
Everytime I make a smoothie I make 2 servings so I can streamline the next days breakfast. Feel free to cut the ingredients in half if you don't want to make more than one serving.

What protein powder do I use?
I have tried at least 10 different protein powders and my favorite is Sprout Living. I get the vanilla lucuma but all of the flavors are good! I love this one because it is a complete protein source with no fillers or gums. They also use things like real vanilla or cacao so the protein doesn’t taste like chemicals.

How to store the extra smoothie?
Making a double batch of smoothie is a game changer. I store the extra smoothie in a mason jar in my fridge overnight. You can also freeze the smoothie in a mason jar and thaw it out when you are ready to eat it.
