Carrot Cake Smoothie

I don’t go in for smoothies as a rule–too much pulverized fructose, and I prefer to chew my food rather than drink it.  I make an exception to that with this smoothie, but I still treat it as a dessert or I pair it with some protein like a hard boiled egg if I want it to be breakfast.  Anything carrot cake flavored is a hit with me, and this captures some of the basic flavors.  If you want this to have more of a frozen texture, you can freeze the pineapple chunks for an hour or so before you make the smoothie.

I found some beautiful young carrots at the grocery and this would be even better with really fresh carrots out of the garden.  All of the flavorings are to taste, and a dash of cinnamon on top pulls it all together.  I recommend leaving a little texture when you blend the carrots, rather than going for something completely smooth.

      Fresh carrots are so good–I can’t wait for the early spring batch.
