Dairy Free, Vegan Carrot Cake Smoothie

Dairy Free, Vegan Carrot Cake Smoothie

This dairy-free and vegan Carrot Cake Smoothie is convenient for an on-the-go breakfast or if you're looking for something unique to serve for dessert. 

What's the secret to this Carrot Cake Smoothie's creaminess and convenience? A big scoop of JOI! This recipe includes some of our other pantry favourites like SweetMonk sugar-free sweetener, Burlap & Barrel spices, and Origin Vanilla extract. 

For this light smoothie version of carrot cake, JOI swapped cream cheese icing for a delicious coconut whipped cream and a dusting of shredded coconut. It adds extra sweetness and makes every breakfast feel like a super special and indulgent treat (even though it only took less than five minutes!)

Delicious and creamy smoothies are a perfect sweet treat any time of the year, but the lively orange colours and carrot flavours make us feel like spring at its peak! Thanks to our friends over at JOI for this delicious dairy free dessert!

Tips:

  • Freeze your carrots and bananas! If you slice them up in advance, it saves time on your meal prep, keeps a whole bunch of them fresh, and eliminates the need for ice so that the smoothie is super creamy.
