Can't think of the last time I had the real thing
I love Instagram!! I pretty much post something up everything, whether it be food, or clothes, or whatever. BUT I love it most for all the food and recipe ideas I find there. For example, I found a recipe for a carrot cake protein shake from @priskaraveo that's perfect as a post-workout treat in a cup. I don't really eat much actual carrot cake----too much sugar in the cream cheese frosting...arg.

I only tweaked the recipe a little. For example, had to go and buy carrot juice because I don't own a juicer. However, I hear that if you steam the hell out of a carrot that it'll be soft enough to blend...if you want to go that route...I was too lazy, haha. I also used fresh ginger because I think you get more of that kick that ginger gives, as well as the inherent detoxing properties.


Carrot Cake Protein Shake

Forgot the walnuts for the picture, oops!
Makes 1 serving

Ingredients:
  • 1/4 C carrot juice (I bought the juice, but if you have a juicer, you just need one carrot)
  • 1 C unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 scoop cinnamon swirl protein powder (or vanilla protein powder)
  • 2 tbsp walnuts
  • 1/8 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp nutmeg
  • Small piece of fresh ginger (or a pinch of ground ginger)
  • Ice


Directions:
  1. Throw everything in a blender, and blend it until smooth.


Note: If you're making this ahead of time, don't blend the ice in until you're ready to drink/serve it.

I made it with fresh carrot juice and frozen pineapple chunks since I didn't have mango on hand, and it was scrumptious!
