Not quite carrot cake, not quite tropical, and a very good way to get a vegetable down at the top of the day.
This smoothie is lightly sweet on its own, but if you do like things on the sweeter side, add a tablespoon or so of honey or agave syrup or a pitted date soaked in hot water to soften when you blend. —Caroline Lange
