Carrot Cake Smoothie Ingredients

With a couple of different fruits and vegetables, this carrot cake smoothie packs a nutritious punch to your morning routine while feeling like you are sneaking in a treat!

For the coconut whipped cream you will need:

Coconut Milk – For best results, please use coconut milk that does not contain guar gum to make the whipped cream.

Maple Syrup – This is optional for additional sweetness depending on how sweet you want your smoothie to be. As always, use real maple syrup.

Orange Zest – For a little added flavor but this is also optional.

You will need the following for your smoothie:

Coconut Milk – This will form the creamy base of our recipe.

Banana – I love using slightly over-ripe bananas in my smoothies and in my banana bread! Use frozen bananas for this smoothie.

Freezing Bananas

Freezing bananas is pretty simple and works for both ripe and over-ripe bananas! Simply slice the bananas, place them on a parchment-lined baking sheet, and freeze until solid. Transfer to a ziplock bag and store in the freezer for up to 5 months. Use in your favorite smoothie recipes like my Spinach Banana Smoothie or this Carrot Cake Smoothie!

Celery – Celery has a high water content and is a good source of vitamin K, folate, and fiber.

Orange – We all know oranges are high in vitamin C and fiber so they’re an excellent nutritious addition to this recipe. They also add a lovely sweetness to the carrot cake smoothie.

Carrots – I mean of course we need carrots! Carrots are an excellent source of beta carotene, which is excellent for eye health, as well as fiber. They also provide a sweetness to the smoothie.

Spices – These are common spices in carrot cake so of course we’re going to find them in a carrot cake smoothie! Cinnamon, allspice, and nutmeg are used to give the smoothie a classic carrot cake taste!

Ice Cubes – Ice cubes are added to smoothies to keep them icy, cold, and refreshing but also to add a source of water and hydration.

Optional Garnish – You can garnish this smoothie with ground cinnamon, shredded coconut, shredded carrot, or finely chopped walnuts.

How to Make Coconut-Whipped Cream

While coconut whipped cream may sound difficult it’s actually rather simple!

The night before or at least several hours before you plan to top your carrot cake smoothie or any other dish, place your can of coconut milk in the fridge to chill.

Remove the can from the fridge carefully so as not to shake or turn it. Carefully, remove the lid and scoop out the solidified “cream” at the top of the can and transfer it to a mixing bowl. Add the maple syrup and orange zest if desired and using a hand mixer blend until light and airy. You may need to allow the cream to warm up slightly if it is lumpy.

Store in an airtight container in the fridge until ready to use.
