Carrot Smoothie Bowls with a Tropical Twist and No Added Sweetener

0

A few months ago, I began posting some fun recipes created by Dole in honor of the Frozen II movie release. I’m not affiliated with either venture, but we were happy to share the wonderful dairy-free dishes they created. Today, Frozen II in Digital HD is hitting Amazon Video and iTunes (it is out on DVD February 25th), so I thought we should commemorate the occasion one more healthy recipe: Dairy-Free Carrot Smoothie Bowls.

Carrot Smoothie Bowls with a Tropical Twist and No Added Sweetener

Disney Frozen II out now on Amazon Prime Video and DVDAs you might have guessed by the carrot theme, this is an Olaf-inspired recipe. It’s a fresh from frozen blend that you can enjoy for sweet nourishment anytime of year.

We love these dairy-free Carrot Smoothie Bowls as warm weather refreshers, for spring breakfasts, or to rejuvenate after a taxing workout or activity any time of year. It’s also a fun, healthy recipe for kids to assemble and enjoy!

Carrots are definitely under-utilized in smoothies. They’re naturally sweet, and meld perfectly with most fruit flavors, like orange, pineapple, and banana.

I know many of your can’t eat bananas (or don’t like them), so I’ve included a banana-free option for these Carrot Smoothie Bowls that is equally delicious!

Special Diet Notes: Carrot Smoothie Bowls

By ingredients, this recipe is dairy-free / non-dairy, egg-free, gluten-free, grain-free, peanut-free, soy-free, vegan, vegetarian, and paleo-friendly.

For nut-free carrot smoothie bowls, omit the almonds, or substitute hemp seeds, pumpkin seeds, or sunflower seeds.

For banana-free carrot smoothie bowls, you can substitute mango for the banana. I would use about 2 cups frozen mango chunks for the smoothie portion, and 1 cup fresh (or defrosted) chopped mango for the topping. Frozen mango chunks are available at most grocery stores.
