Can You Use Frozen Vegetables to Make A Carrot Smoothie?

Believe it or not, you can use frozen veggies to make a carrot smoothie. In fact, vegetables that are frozen tend to retain more nutrients than what you would find in the produce section. 

Using frozen vegetables also helps to give your smoothie a creamy consistency. Think of them as mini ice cubes! 

Carrot smoothie is nutritious and delicious!

Can I Make this Recipe Into A Smoothie Bowl?

Yes! You can make this carrot cake smoothie into a delicious & filling smoothie bowl! What a great way to enjoy your vegetables as a dessert!  

Simply blend extra ice cubes or frozen veggies and use less water or milk to make a super thick consistency. 

If you would like to keep this smoothie vegan, stick to using coconut, cashew, or almond milk rather than regular milk.

I love when I can incorporate fruits and vegetables into meals or desserts. It helps to pack a nutritious punch without making it obvious! Here are some of our favorite recipes that include veggies that we would love for you to try!  

How to Make A Carrot Cake Smoothie

Chill coconut milk in the refrigerator for several hours or overnight.

To prepare coconut cream, remove the can from the refrigerator without shaking or turning and remove the lid. Scoop out the solidified “cream” from the top of the can and transfer to a mixing bowl.

Reserve remaining liquid coconut milk to use in a smoothie. Add maple syrup and orange zest, if desired, to the mixing bowl and blend until light and airy.

Allow coconut cream to warm up slightly before blending if lumps persist. Cover and place bowl in the refrigerator until ready to use.

To make the smoothie, add the coconut milk and frozen banana to a high-speed blender and blend until smooth, around 30 seconds. Add celery, orange, carrots, cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg, and ice cubes.

Blend on high speed until completely combined and creamy, approximately 1-2 minutes.

Pour into glasses and top with a scoop of coconut whipped cream. Garnish with a dash of cinnamon or finely chopped walnuts, if desired, and serve immediately. Enjoy!
