I promise not to judge you for having cake for breakfast…in healthy carrot cake oatmeal smoothie form. 

Just the other week we had brownies in smoothie form, so I should have seen it coming. A thick, creamy, doughy and batter like base, flavored with sweet carrots, vanilla, cinnamon AND a secret addition to give it an even creamier texture. 

When I looked at my google calendar, I noticed it was one my favorites birthday’s coming up- My fellow narcissist Juli. Because I’m a fan of sharing a recipe which relates to a special someone, I knew there was one flavor- Carrot cake. (I did consider something curry/spicy/meat-y, but I’ll leave that to her kitchen).

When I first thought up of doing something ‘carrot cake’ like, a smoothie wasn’t on my radar. I think much of it had to do with my bad memories of having expensive vegetable soup veggie-loaded fruit juices which tasted like punishment.

How do we like our healthy carrot cake oatmeal smoothies? Thick, creamy and spoonable…with a spoon. 

For the longest time, I thought that to achieve this texture, you needed to either use a load of ice, a load of ice cream, a load of frozen fruit, or a combination of all three. This time, however, I’ve learned that adding rolled oats (gluten-free, if necessary) achieves a similar, if not better texture! This works even better in this carrot cake smoothie, as the oats are somewhat dough-like, and seriously reminds you of a carrot cake batter!

I understand that many of you out there (gluten-free, or not) have mentioned that you cannot tolerate oats very well! I tried a version with quinoa flakes (not to be confused with raw quinoa) and I was pleasantly surprised with its similarity to oats! I’d never tried quinoa flakes as a hot cereal before, but I’m thinking to give it a go cake batter or sticky cinnamon roll style

Breakfast, snack or even a post workout meal, this carrot cake smoothie totally fits the bill. It’s packed with protein (whether or not you use the optional protein powder or not- I recommend this casein protein powder, this paleo protein powder and this brown rice protein powder), and has an added boost of fiber, thanks to either the use of chia seeds, ground flax or my favorite LSA mix (ground linseed, sunflower seeds and almonds)

Want something optional but highly recommended to take it up a notch? Add in either two tablespoons of cream cheese, cottage cheese or Greek yogurt! It’s like having the cream cheese frosting on a classic cake blended all together! Initially, I wanted to top the smoothie with it, but it sunk worse than Leo Dicaprio. 

The key piece of this cake made puzzle is using a sturdy blender. I have been obsessed with using my Optimum blender, as it pulses, pulverizes, and minces anything and everything within minutes. I was a little nervous about adding whole, raw carrots to it, but I had nothing to fear- The Optimum blitzed it like a…..blintzer?

HACK! For those of you who may be fearful that your blender may not be strong enough, you can either use lightly steamed carrots or even carrot baby food! I know that sounds so odd, but it’s not like you are eating it with a spoon. 

…Not that I would judge you if you did.

Enjoy this healthy carrot cake oatmeal smoothie and enjoy cake for breakfast in seconds- Make sure you hold up your glass for my Juli!

  1. Wait. I can have my cake and drink it, too? Yes, please! I love a good smoothie…although I must admit that I don’t often make them for breakfast. Not sure why? Maybe it’s because I’m in auto-pilot mode in the morning. But when I do make smoothies, I want ’em to be thick…like eat with a spoon thick…like ice cream thick. This one sounds like it’s right up my alley…and I’m kinda craving it right now!

  2. Carrot cake and a casual insult? And it isn’t even my birthday yet. Stop spoiling me!

    So random but I was looking for a carrot mug cake recipe for this afternoon to kick off birthday week but now I’ll have a smoothie 😀 And I’ll make sure I hold up my glass for myself ;-P

  3. I learned the hard way that my blender is not at all powerful enough for raw carrots. When you have to chew your carrot smoothie it’s not a pretty picture. Love the idea of putting cream cheese in there, though.
    Favorite birthday cake? Well, considering I fell asleep on my birthday AND on Valentine’s Day before dessert, I’d say I pretty much fail at holiday desserts.
