"This started out as a way to hide a carrot in a smoothie, but ended up being more about the carrot with fruit hidden inside! If you'd like to add ice, go ahead. I didn't and it came out fine."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

carrot, peeled and diced

I knew that the spice amounts would be too much for me (personal preference), so I literally cut them in half, and those flavors still were prominent. Cinnamon, allspice, and ginger are very strong spices, so I'd recommend that you start out modestly and then add more if necessary because once they're in there, you can't take them out. I didn't use any frozen fruit, so I did add ice, I like my smoothies thick. This is one of those "outside-the-box" smoothies, and I like the fact that it's not loaded with additional sweeteners, the fruit takes care of that.
Whoa, this is a little strange. It was kind of more like carrot cake batter than carrot cake. The spices even turn it that dark batter color. I really liked though how healthy it is with the cinnamon, ginger, carrots, and fruit. I only had frozen fruit, so I had to use an additional 1/2 cup non dairy milk. I used unsweetened vanilla almond milk.
