Carrot Cake Smoothie

I love protein shakes for breakfast (see my other versions here & here). This carrot cake smoothie is slightly sweet but still super healthy, with a full serving of both veggies & fruit.

Ingredients
1 cup baby carrots
1 banana
1/2 cup vanilla almond milk
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
pinch of nutmeg
1 scoop vanilla protein powder
8-12 ice cubes

Directions
In a blender, combine banana, baby carrots and almond milk and grate until carrots are no longer chunky. Add protein powder, cinnamon, nutmeg and ice. Blend until your desired consistency is achieved. I prefer my smoothie thick more like a milkshake so I use a lot of ice. Sprinkle a dash of cinnamon on top & enjoy!
