Guilt-Free Carrot Cake Smoothie

I was inspired on my drive home the other day when a craving for carrot cake hit me. I didn’t have time to make an actual carrot cake, and I’m not fond of all of that sugar in a typical carrot cake anyway. So I thought, “Hmmm, I bet, with the right spices, I could make a smoothie that tastes just like it.” And I did!

I think this would be very good with some walnuts, maybe some melted organic pastured butter, and pineapple too. 

Since I was making this for both Mr. Hippie and myself, I used my largest cup for my Nutribullet. As such, it makes 2 small servings, but I could easily finish the entire 20 oz carrot cake smoothie myself, and since it doesn’t have any junk in it, I’d finish it guilt-free!
