A bowl and some toppings can quickly turn a snack sized smoothie into a satisfying meal. I recently had a craving for some carrot cake and wondered if I could make a smoothie to curb the craving. Lucky for me (and now lucky for you), I succeeded. It may not have cream cheese frosting, but this carrot cake smoothie bowl recipe is so delicious. Plus, itโ€™s super easy to make and Whole 30 & Paleo approved.

  • 1/2 cup of carrot juice
  • 1 large banana
  • 2 pitted dates, diced

  • 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon
  • 8-10 ice cubes*
  • Toppings: banana slices, almond butter, cinnamon, walnuts, shredded coconut, and whatever else you desire.

*# depends on how thick you like your smoothies. If you donโ€™t like ice in your smoothies peel, slice, and freeze your banana ahead of time.


  1. Put carrot juice, banana, dates, vanilla, cinnamon, and ice cubes in a blender.
  2. Blend until smooth. Add additional ice cubes if needed.
  3. Top with desired toppings and enjoy!


  1. I have a snack question. I eat baarkfest at 7 and then usually have a Pure Protein bar for a snack at 10. Lunch is then at 12:10. What can I do in place of the bar that would be Paleo’s? I have the Larabar, but then wouldn’t I be short the protein? Do I need to do chicken to get the protein at that time? Convenience is better as during this time I am in class with students, but I will do what I need to. Thanks for your help.
