I’m always looking for new ways to incorporate fruits and veggies into my family’s diet. This smoothie recipe incorporates the flavors of carrot cake with carrot juice, honey, and spices, to make a delicious cold treat.
One serving delivers 1/2 a serving of carrots . . . not bad for a treat! The beautiful natural orange color from the carrots gives the smoothies a fantastic holiday feeling, perfect for an autumn afternoon or a spooky Halloween get-together. If you’ve made your own soymilk, this is one great way to use it!
