Carrot Cake Shake

 

In the mood for a dessert, but want something nourishing and energizing? The recipe we’re about to share utilizes a vitamin-packed spring veggie, carrots, and tastes like an indulgent treat that’s rich in flavor and spice. Plus, it makes a great crowd-pleasing recipe for your entire family to enjoy!

Enjoy fall flavors year-round with this Carrot Cake Shake! If you’re a fan of warm, spiced carrot cake topped with cream cheese frosting, this smoothie recipe is calling your name. While traditional carrot cake is typically loaded with sugar and unhealthy fats, this recipe alternative includes all the decadent flavors of the dish while fueling your body with clean ingredients.

Made with 310 Vanilla Chai, rolled oats, baby carrots, almonds, chocolate chips, butter extract, vanilla extract, cinnamon, and unsweetened almond milk, you can have this sumptuous smoothie any time of day – whether it be for breakfast, lunch, a pre- or post-workout drink, or a healthy snack. This Carrot Cake Shake is packed with 21g of protein and 13g of heart-healthy fats, so you can indulge in a sweet treat and provide your body with the nutrients it needs to function at its best.

Before we get to the full, totally-yummy recipe, let’s go over some awesome health benefits of this guilt-free indulgence…

Sweet & Spicy Treat: 310 Vanilla Chai Shake

The first ingredient to give this shake its warm, rich taste is a scoop of 310 Vanilla Chai Shake! This yummy meal replacement shake powder offers a twist on a classic vanilla shake, featuring the flavors and spices (cinnamon, clove, and nutmeg) of a chai latte, without all the sugar and syrups. Let’s take a look at some stand-out benefits of 310 Vanilla Chai Shake…

With a unique blend of plant-based proteins (pea, brown rice, and hemp), 310 Vanilla Chai can help leave you satisfied and energized! Since your body doesn’t produce protein on its own, getting enough (from high-quality sources) in your diet is important – and drinking 310 Shakes are a convenient way to help you do this!  

Along with quality protein, 310 Shakes are also high-fiber and contain 20 vitamins and minerals, organic superfood greens, and probiotics. In addition, 310 Vanilla Chai is naturally-sweetened with plant-based Stevia, so you can enjoy this “sweet treat” without all the sugar.

Added Texture & Fiber: Rolled Oats

Next, another key ingredient in this yummy smoothie recipe is rolled oats – which gives this shake more thickness, texture, and cake-like quality...

Oats are loaded with fiber, specifically a kind called beta-glucan - which has been studied for it's effect on slowing digestion and increasing satiety. So, if you aren’t a fan of the texture of oatmeal but still want to reap the benefit of oats, adding them to your shake is an excellent way!

Antioxidant-Rich Veggie: Carrots

Finally, we couldn’t make this Carrot Cake Shake without fresh, crisp, raw baby carrots!

Carrots, typically known as a healthy snack, provide this shake with great texture and added natural sweetness. Carrots are also an excellent source of antioxidants, which can potentially assist with reducing free radicals in the body, promoting overall health and wellness. One of the major plant compounds in carrots, beta carotene, can convert into vitamin A within the body, and is widely known for it's benefit on the immune system as well as eye health.
