This post is a part of a series of smoothie recipes. Click here for the introductory post.
Last week I shared an idea for making smoothie kits—either for a friend who is needing a boost, like a new mom, or for yourself, to help make getting out the door a little faster in the morning. I started off with my Citrus Explosion smoothie, which is helping to keep this 37 week pregnant mama’s cravings under control.
For those of you who don’t feel the need to have citrus pumped into your veins through an IV, I thought I would share a creamy dessert like smoothie. You can totally have this one for breakfast though—packed with fruits, veggies, and protein! I love this one, and David gulps it down too! It tastes very similar to a Chocolate PB smoothie, but it is nut free!
I got the idea to add carrots into a smoothie from a friend. She said that Jamba Juice has some sort of secret menu and on it is a chocolate smoothie with carrots and it tastes like a butterfinger bar! I’ve never had it, and this smoothie doesn’t taste like a butterfinger to me, but it is delicious! So here we go….
24 Carrot (serves 1 hungry mama + a few kiddos)
2 carrots, peeled and cut into smaller pieces
1 1/2 c Chocolate Hemp Milk
(or non-dairy milk + 1 T Chocolate powder)
2 T Hemp seeds
Place all ingredients into the blender and blend. You can add water or ice to thin or thicken the consistency to your preference. Enjoy!
