Dessert in smoothie form? Well, why not! Not only does this taste like everyone’s favourite afternoon treat, carrot cake, it also has one portion of vegetables to help you get to your 5-a-day quota.
The weather has been beautiful the past couple of days in the UK and I’m hoping that it’s going to stick around. However, if the unfortunate happens this brightly coloured smoothie is like sunshine in a glass, so even on a grey day, you can get a healthy and bright start.
Now I’m really excited about this recipe because it’s centred around my favourite meal of the day, breakfast! Who doesn’t love starting the day with a delicious meal to get them all kick started for the day? Me for one, however, I was seriously surprised when I discovered that so many of you simply don’t make time in your busy schedules to eat a decent breakfast.
