Carrot Cake Smoothie

In the spring, I find myself wanting carrot cake; it just seems like a spring dessert.  Yet when the craving hits, I sometimes don’t want to go through the trouble of making the time consuming cake, so it is nice to have an alternative.  I recently made a carrot cake smoothie, and it had all the delicious flavors of a carrot cake without having all the sugar or flour.  It was smooth, non-dairy, spiced just like carrot cake and I even included some protein powder for an extra boost.  It would be a good breakfast or snack…who says you can’t have cake for breakfast?  You can, if you have it this way!
