Indulge in this dessert-like carrot cake protein smoothie as a meal replacement or post-workout pick-me-up.

This nutritious smoothie will keep you full until lunch, since it’s super packed with fiber from the carrots and oats, and top-notch plant-based protein, VEGA.

For a creamier and more calorie and nutrition-dense option, replace the water with your favorite milk substitute and for a thick smoothie use frozen banana!

This recipe uses gluten-free oats, but those without a sensitivity to gluten can use normal oats. A Blendtec or Vitamix blender will pulverize the oats and carrots into a creamy cake smoothie, but you can do it with a “regular” blender too.

Everyone knows that carrots improve vision, but carrots are packed with health benefits for all parts of your body!

Beta-carotene slows down the aging of cells and prevents heart disease!

Some lesser-known benefits from carrots surface when looking for beauty solutions — Vitamin A protects the skin from sun damage and can be topically applied to the face as an antiseptic while protecting the face with antioxidant when not working from the inside-out!

    Love this smoothie! It tasted like pumpkin pie! I would suggest just adding a handful of ice, to make it just a bit cooler.

    probably best carrot recipe that i did so far 😉 little bit of ice would be good to add tho… making a little cooler…

  3. I feel healthiest when I’m running. Unfortunately I’ve been sidelined because of pregnancy but look forward to getting back at it after the new year.

    1. I usually don’t love carrots in my smoothie either, but this one was DELICIOUS! Let me know if you try it Andrea 🙂
