Allergen-Free Carrot-Ginger Smoothie

This was my first attempt at recreating a delicious smoothie I had at the Ecopolitan Restaurant in Minneapolis, MN. I like to try the more exotic smoothie recipes and am always looking for something new and interesting to try. This is seriously sooo good. I’m considering making it again tomorrow! Here is my recipe:

Update: I changed some things about this smoothie to make it carb-protein-fat balanced. It is still as delicious, but it also is allergen-free for those of us struggling with allergies or trying to figure out if we are allergic by doing an elimination diet.

Carrot-Ginger Smoothie

Ingredients:

  • 1 banana
  • 1/4 cup carrot juice
  • 1/2 cup canned unsweetened coconut milk

  • 1 scoop Ultimate Vegan Vanilla Protein Powder
  • Crushed ice as needed

Directions:

  1. Break banana into pieces and place in blender.
  2. Add carrot juice, coconut milk, lemon juice, extract, and ginger.
  3. Top with protein powder, followed by crushed ice.
