Tuesday treat - have your cake and blend it, too

I made a carrot cake with cream cheese frosting for Tall
Guy's birthday. It was  good excellent, but that's not
something you should eat every day.

Even if you want to.

Really, really want to.

I tried making a carrot cake smoothie for breakfast, and it's sure not the same thing, but it's a pretty good alternative:
  • 3/4 C Plain Greek yogurt (or more, if you want a larger smoothie)
  • a carrot
  • 1/4 C pineapple
  • a dash each of cinnamon and nutmeg
  • milk/water/pineapple juice (if you like a liquid drink)
  • ice/frozen banana (if you like a thicker smoothie)
Throw it in the Vita-mix and blend away, my friend.
