It’s the new year and it’s time to get back into our routines. One of my favorite things to make for a quick, and easy breakfast is a smoothie. Smoothies are so easy, you can make so many variations, and they are a quick way to get some nutrients into your body first thing in the morning or when you need a pick-me-up in the middle of the day. This carrot cake smoothie recipe is an easy smoothie recipe to try this year for a healthy, clean breakfast.
Why you’ll love this carrot cake smoothie:
Quick: A smoothie is such an easy thing to pull off even for the busiest people in the morning. This recipe will only take 5-minutes
Delicious: The carrots combined with the spiciness of the ginger, and sweetness of the maple syrup and cinnamon makes this carrot cake smoothie so good that it’s hard to believe how healthy it is
Immune-Boosting: The ingredients in this recipe are all immune-boosting which is perfect for keeping you healthy in cold and flu season
Carrots: Carrots are full of fiber, vitamin A and beta-carotene. They can also help strengthen your bones with calcium, and vitamin K. They are also easy and cheap to get no matter what the season.
Ginger: Ginger is loaded with antioxidants and can help your body stay healthy. Ginger is also calming on your stomach and is so flavorful.
Manitoba Harvest Hemp Hearts: One of my go-to ingredients in any smoothie is hemp hearts. I use Manitoba Harvest Hemp Hearts which are all-natural and full of plant protein. On top of the protein, they also are loaded with things like Omegas 3 and 6, all 9 essential amino acids, and vital nutrients like magnesium, fiber, zinc, and iron. They are so good for you and so easy to toss into smoothies, on top of salads, yogurt, etc.
