Drinkable Carrot Cake and My Blog's New Look

Drinkable cake!
Hope that got your attention...

I thought it was about time that my blog's look was revamped! What do you guys think of the new look? I would love to have your input on anything I can do better. Please tell me if you are having viewing difficulties.

Usually I enjoy food I can chew on more than drinks but this is an exception. It is a perfect refreshing drink for the last weeks of summer. This smoothie is creamy, spicy, and sweet. It is everything you could imagine in a drinkable carrot cake.

So thick and creamy. I ate it with a spoon!

Drinkable Carrot Cake
Makes a small glass.
Double if you're drinking this as a meal
2/3 cup vanilla soy milk
1 small carrot (I used 5 baby carrots)
1 ice cube (or more if desired)
Pinch guar gum
1/2 frozen banana
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tbsp ground flax seed
Toppings: dried cranberries, cinnamon, melted coconut oil

1. Chop up carrot and place in a small microwavable dish

2. Add about a tablespoon of water to the dish and microwave on high for 30 seconds to 1 minute, until carrots have softened

3. Put all of your ingredients (except toppings) into a blender and combine

4. Pour into a glass and add your toppings

Mmm... hardened coconut oil

Another beverage I have been enjoying is this... love it


Do you like drinks?
Sometimes I think I'm strange because I usually only drink tea and water


  1. I didn't use to love drinks (because of my eating disorder) but I'm finally seeing the light. My newest obsession happens to be Starbucks Soy Cinnamon Dolce I'm in love with them and think about them nonstop. It's kind of ridiculous. Now I need to try your drinkable carrot cake because it looks pretty amazing too!

  2. This is way cool! I have to say - I love the new look! So bright and colorful!

  3. The background is really eye catching, so the new look is great! This recipe does have some tasty ingredients and is healthy. Thanks for sharing!

  4. this drink sounds incredible!! im a huge fan of carrot cake, the only thing missing here is the cream cheese frosting ;)

  5. I'm craving this now. Seems different but sounds fantastic. I will have to give it a try.

  6. This looks delicious and I LOVE the new look! So colorful and inviting, great job! :)

  7. I'm new! But I think it, and the drink, look wonderful!

  8. I'm pretty much a water drinker- I rarely drink anything else (other than coffee or tea occasionally.) The idea of a drinkable cake sounds SOOOO good. I can't wait to try this!

  9. The new blog looks great! Carrot cake in a glass, now that is creative!

  10. Looks like a yummy after workout snack...protein, carb, fiber, awesome!

    New blog is fun & friendly, good job!

  11. I only drink tea and water as well, though I occasionally have a diet carbonated beverage; diet because I drink it for the bubbles, not the sugar.

    This drink looks fabulous; thanks for the recipe! Too bad almond milk isn't available in my local stores here =<

  12. Yum! This sounds delicious! I love carrot cake,and appriciate that this is a healthier way to enjoy it! Your blog is looking snazzy :)!

  13. Carrot cake in a liquid form is an awesome idea, love this!

  14. the blog looks fab!!! so cute! and i loveee drinkss !!! esp this one.. great photo!

  15. I LOVE YOUR NEW LAYOUT!!! :D And your carrot cake smoothie looks TO DIE FOR!!! Oh my gosh.

  16. I love the look of your blog, its really fun! I was just looking at your about me.. I'm also a kinesiology major and have figure skated my whole life! Pretty cool, I love finding similar people in the blog world!

  17. I don't usually have a lot of beverages myself, because I've always considered liquid food a waste of my Weight Watchers points. But this looks like it must be tried!

  18. I'm definitely more of a chewing person. I don't really even drink smoothies. But that does look quite delicious -- if someone made it for me I would never turn it down haha. Also- love the look of the blog. I've never visited before today, but I do like it.

  19. I LOVE the new blog look!!! It's adorable! So fun. And this smoothie sounds delicious! I didn't used to be a big carrot cake fan, but I've recently changed my stance on this ;) haha

    I like drinks a lot! But mostly just green tea, and... ok... diet coke ;) haha

  20. Sounds like the perfect blend of a treat and a healthy snack!

    What I find most entertaining, though, is that Silk calls this beverage "TrueAlmond" in Canada, and "PureAlmond" in the US. I hadn't known that before, and now I can't help but wonder why.

  21. Cake with a straw could get dangerous; this looks like an amazing dessert concept!

  22. Whoa! This looks awesome. I was so relieved to see there's no cake batter in it either ;) Can't wait to try it.

  23. What an interesting recipe! It looks awesome. I love cake so why wouldn't I in drinkable format? And cute blog!


Your turn!
