Did you know every April 4th is International Carrot Day! Carrot Cake is one of my favorite desserts, especially the one my aunt makes. For a healthier alternative and time saver try this quick 5 minute smoothie recipe to enjoy as a snack, meal replacement (depending on the serving size), or dessert.
Carrots provide an excellent source of vitamin A. 3 ounces of carrots provide 70% daily value of vitamin A, that is a lot. A few major roles Vitamin A plays in our bodies are eye and skin health, as well as builds immunity from infection.
This Carrot Cake Recipe can be enjoyed at anytime and have fun with it. I made this a few times in various ways and there are plenty ways to change it up, like:
adding 1/2 a pear instead of grapes
changing up the nuts to your choice (pumkpkin seeds could be a good alternative!)
Using part coconut milk and part almond milk
sprinkling coconut flakes on top
add chia or hemp seeds
Make this recipe yours and share with me what you changed up and how you liked!
