This carrot cake smoothie is a deliciously drinkable nod to the classic cake. If you’ve got dates to hand, swap out one of the bananas for 2 dates.


Simply blend all the ingredients in a food processor or blender until smooth. Drink straight away or freeze as ice lollies.

Kids in the kitchen:

Get the kids to make this one themselves. Let older kids grate the carrots, and get children to dump everything in the blender and push the button!
