Coconut Carrot Cake Smoothie Recipe

Ingredients

  • 5 oz carrots - chopped
  • 1 banana - peeled
  • 3 tbsp walnuts
  • 1 tbsp coconut flakes
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup ice

Carrots bring a dose of sweetness to smoothies, as well as beta-carotene, vitamin C, and fiber. Bananas are also full of fiber, as well as potassium, and cinnamon is a natural anti-inflammatory that helps with both complexion and regulating blood sugar. Walnuts provide a dose of nutty sweetness and Omega-3s, as well as potent cancer-fighting compounds. Round this healthy breakfast out with some unsweetened coconut flakes, and get your dessert fix without any of those pesky refined sugars.
