This is one of my favorite carrot-based smoothies--kind of like having dessert for breakfast, but with all nutritious ingredients! Whenever I can recreate a dessert in smoothie form, I do! I even snuck in some turmeric for some anti-inflammatory action--and great color.
- 1/2 cup carrot juice
- 1/2 cup unsweetened cashew or almond milk
- 1/2 cup frozen peaches
- 1/3 frozen banana
- 2 medjool dates
- 1 Tbsp unsalted almond butter
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp turmeric
Simply combine all ingredients in a blender. Enjoy!
