Tropical Carrot Cake Smoothie

This Tropical Carrot Cake Smoothie is a creamy and healthy take on classic carrot cake. 

Tropical Carrot Cake Smoothie

I’m in love with this smoothie, y’all! Isn’t it pretty?

Carrot cake has a deliciously complex flavor profile. I love the spices and the texture. And I mean… it’s made with carrots so it has to count for something healthy, right?! Though I love a good slice of carrot cake, this smoothie puts carrots in the spotlight and requires just a fraction of the time to make.

For this blend, I combine traditional carrot cake flavors with mango and coconut for a tropical twist. It comes together in just a few minutes and is honestly my favorite smoothie so far. Somehow, I always end up with extra carrots in the fridge. This carrot cake smoothie is a tasty way to use them up.

I shared a step-by-step tutorial on how I made this smoothie over on the KitchenAid blog along with some carrot nutrition information but had to share it with you here too!
