This carrot smoothie is a bit different than others I have featured on ZK. It’s a touch thicker and not as sweet—this smoothie is for the adventurous. I love it because it truly tastes like carrot cake. If you want it sweeter swap out the frozen mango for frozen pineapple chunks or increase the maple syrup by just a bit.
