Description

Our carrot banana smoothie is inspired by carrot cake and features the warming spice of ground cinnamon and aromatic vanilla extract.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 frozen ripe banana
  • 1/2 cup chopped carrots, peeled
  • 1 date, pitted
  • 3/4 cup dairy-free milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • A pinch of ground nutmeg, optional

Instructions

  1. Make sure your ripe banana is frozen.
  2. Add all of the ingredients to a high-speed blender and blend until smooth.

Notes

If the date is firm, it’s best to soak it before adding it to the blender.  Once it has softened it will be easier to blend.

For firm dates, I soak them in the milk I plan on using for the smoothie.  Measure out the non-dairy milk, drop a pitted date into the milk, then refrigerate for about an hour to soften.  A quicker method would be softening them in warm water for about 15 minutes.

I peel and slice the banana into four quarters before freezing.
