Clean Carrot Cake Smoothie

clean carrot cake smoothie

You know what they say...necessity is the mother of invention.  I woke up this morning (a Monday) just needing a clean re-set.  My weekend wasn't crazy, but there may have been some bubble tea, some chocolates, and a few extra glasses of wine at some point. 

I threw together this combination of detoxifying and nourishing ingredients only to find.....what the....ittastesjustlikecarrotcake.  YES.  Starting this week off RIGHT, people.
