@Lean_lisha nailed this layered carrot cake smoothie! For the "cake" layer, blend frozen banana, carrot puree, unsweetened coconut milk, vanilla protein powder, vanilla extract, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, cloves, and ice. For the "frosting" layer, combine Greek yogurt, butter extract, vanilla extract, and stevia to taste. Alternate layers, and top with shredded carrots and crushed walnuts for an awesome treat.
