Saturday Skinny Carrot Cake Smoothie ♥

Happy Saturday! Here is a super healthy smoothie recipe with an Easter twist! A tasty carrot cake smoothie you won't feel guilty about having! ( Look at the lady carrot I found below :)  enjoy! ♥  

Ingredients ♥ 

Makes 2 large smoothies

1 cup milk (I used unsweetened vanilla almond milk)
1/2 cup plain yogurt
1/2 cup rolled oats (optional)
3 carrots, cut into chunks (or see options above)
1 large banana
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 cup figs
pinch nutmeg
1-2 tablespoons honey, agave nectar, or maple syrup, to taste 
ice (you don’t need ice if you have a frozen banana and/or frozen almond milk)

Directions ♥ 
Put everything except the ice into the blender.  Blend until smooth (you’ll want to blend longer than usual to get rid of any graininess from the carrot).  Add the ice and blend again until smooth.enjoy!♥
