Completely Board Post #16: Carrot Cake Protein Smoothie

Veg-am's Completely Board - Vegan Month of Food 2014

Vegan MoFo only has a few more days!  I can’t believe it’s gone by quickly.  I’m cutting it close, but I actually have a good chance of finishing my 20 posts by the end of the month. I have a plan, now let’s see if I can stick to it.  I’m actually loving the feeling of using some of my Pinterest pins, and there are so many more that I still want to try. I may just end up doing the occasional Completely Board post even after Vegan MoFo has ended.   Now on to post #16…

I love fresh juices and smoothies.  We’re fortunate to have a juice/smoothie bar right here in our own little town, but it can be an expensive habit. So, while I’ll go there for the occasional treat, I like to make my juices and smoothies right here at home.  I pinned this Carrot Cake Protein Smoothie sometime last year and can’t believe I waited so long especially since I always have all the ingredients in my kitchen.

Carrot Cake Protein Smoothie

This is going to be short and sweet (just like me…he he).  I followed the instructions using homemade carrot juice and Jarrow Vanilla Brown Rice Protein (2 Tbsp).  The only thing I changed is I used original almond milk and added 1/8 tsp vanilla extract.

It’s pretty.  It’s sweet.  It surprised me, but It really does taste a little like carrot cake. Yay for another keeper!

      It may end up not happening, but I’m getting closer. Hoping to get #18 today…I’ve prepared it already, just have to write it up. And then I need to do 19 and 20 tomorrow!
