So I decided I would skip out on sharing a new workout with you this week and give you guys a bonus recipe instead. Lucky ducks
You guys I’m feeling pretty genius right now, see I made us a seriously healthy, insanely delicious, protein packed smoothie that tastes like cake!
It may not be the prettiest shake in the bunch but looks aren’t the be all and end all right?
One sip and you’ll see.
This Carrot Cake Protein Shake holds all those incredible, traditional carrot cake flavours we all know and love minus the post cake food coma/sugar crash or guilt.
And no, it doesn’t taste “carroty”!
It tastes exactly like carrot cake.
Subtly sweet, perfectly spiced and just all kinds of delicious! I think the slight tartness of the Greek yoghurt helps to tie in the much loved element of the cream cheese frosting too! ♥♥♥
This Carrot cake protein shake is all natural and packed with a whopping 11g of protein!
This bad boy is sweetened naturally with our trusty old, pre-frozen, over-ripe banana, a splash of vanilla, a drizzle of maple syrup and a pinch of cinnamon.
This Carrot Cake Protein Shake is perfect for anytime of day!
Breakfast on the go? = Carrot Cake Protein Shake! (Um hello guilt free cake for breakfast = winning!)
