So it’s two days since my summer solstice yoga extravaganza, and I’m still so sore. It was fun to do though, and it clearly gave me a great workout!
To recharge after all of those sun salutations, I whipped together a little nutritious shake… and it was delicious. And I’ve read in several places lately that eating lots of carrots- in addition to obvious nutrition- actually gives you a little glow comparable to a tan! I didn’t really check for this … sorry
Carrot Cake Smoothie
4-5 baby carrots
1/2 cup So Delicious Coconut Milk (or any non-dairy milk)
1/2 cup Vita CoCo Pineapple**
2 tbsp plain non-fat greek yogurt
stevia to taste
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp almond extract
1 tsp cinnamon
pinch each of ground cloves, allspice, and ground nutmeg
Optional: walnuts, pecans, or grated coconut
** You can use any combination of pineapple and coconut- fresh is even more ideal! Vita CoCo is just what I had on hand.
Cut up the baby carrots into smaller pieces and put into blender with milk. Blend until smoothly pureed. Add the rest of the ingredients and blend until smooth.
