Recipes Tips – Carrot Cake Smoothie Bowl
When picking out the ingredients, keep these tips in mind.
- Frozen Carrots:
- Choose an option that is either sliced, crinkled, or shredded.
- If you can’t find these, you can use a small orange. Make sure it’s frozen to help with consistency. Before freezing, peel the fruit for ease!
- Whether you choose a plant-based option or dairy milk, be sure to look for an unsweetened to keep the added sugars to zero.
- Shredded Coconut:
- Look for an unsweetened option. My favorite is online from NOWFoods.com.
When making the smoothie bowl, keep these tips in mind.
- Fruit needs to be frozen.
- In order to get the consistency to a smoothie bowl you can eat with a spoon versus drink from a straw, the fruit needs to be very frozen. If you take it out then get side tracked, you may need to add another frozen banana in to achieve the right consistency.
- Toppings need to be proper sizing and texture!
- For the shredded carrots, be sure to cook them in a little coconut oil before adding on top. This creates a better texture and flavor combo!
- Chop the walnuts, finely.
- Raisins and shredded coconut are good to go as is for adults and older kids. For younger eaters, omit the raisins and walnuts if not finely chopped.
- Add in protein.
- Boost the protein by adding in a collagen powder or plant protein powder of choice.
