Carrot Cake Smoothie Bowl

Carrot cake smoothie bowls

Carrot…in a smoothie – I know what you’re thinking. It was the same thought that occurred to me.  However, once you work through having veg for breakfast you’ll see how this makes a great substitute for for fruit in a smoothie and how it still adds fibre AND tastes amazing.  Also a sneaky way to include more veg into your child’s diet if you have a fussy eater on your hands.

While the toppings take a little prep you could use pre-made granola (I love this version or this version too) or just some soaked seeds or even some seed mix.  The toppings are really optional as well – they make your smoothie bowl look pretty (and instagrammable for sure) but they also add energy – so don’t go too overboard.  Let me know what you think if you try it!

A delicious carrot cake smoothie bowl to get your morning off to the right start!
Recipe type: Breakfast
Serves: 2
  • 2 carrots, washed and grated (save some for the topping)
  • ½ cup (125ml) plain yoghurt
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Pinch of ground ginger
  • 1 banana, frozen
  • ¼ cup rolled oats
  • 1 TBSP sunflower seeds
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 teaspoon of coconut oil
  • ½ apple, cubed
  • 2 tablespoons raisons
  1. Blend the carrots, yoghurt, honey and spices together with the banana and 2 tablespoons of the oats until smooth.
  2. Add some milk if needed to thin it out further
  3. In a pan, melt the oil and toss in the remaining oats, the salt, sunflower seeds and toast until done. Optional here is to add a little drizzle of honey to make this sticky and golden.
  4. Pour your carrot cake smoothie into a bowl and top with apple cubes, raisons, leftover grated carrot and your homemade granola.
  5. Enjoy!
Difficult to make this FODMAP friendly - but if you want to you'd need to remove the honey, use dairy free milk instead of yoghurt and use gluten free oats, replace the raisins with blueberries! I havent tried this - so let me know if you do!
