Nutty Carrot Protein Shake

 

If you frequent my blog you will know that I love nut butter, I add it to almost everything including salads. After a workout one day I was craving one of my carrot nut butter salads but knew my stomach wouldn’t handle it well. I thought about just having some carrots and peanut butter but I decided to whip up a Nutty Carrot Shake. For about a week I tried so many different variations with different nut butters. Tastes great with peanut butter like Peanut Butter & Co Smooth Operator one of my favs, almond butter tastes amazing with Justin’s Vanilla Almond Butter, and even nut/seed butters like Nuttzo. Have an empty peanut butter jar, I happened to have a few one day and instead of using all of them to make overnight oats I added some almond milk to a Peanut Butter & Co White Chocolate Wonder jar, gave it a shake and put it in the refrigerator and later made a shake and enjoyed it in the container.

As a Vega Recipe Ambassador I receive Vega products, which I used as an option in this recipe. I use Vega not because it is given to me but because it has been my plant-based protein of choice since before I started blogging and some recipes are made with Vega products I purchase. I only write about foods I love, my blog is an extension of my hobby to make fun healthy food creations for me and my family.

    White Chocolate Wonderful is their best flavor I think ;). Sounds like a great smoothie!

      Thank you! White Chocolate is delicious! I made this shake with the White Chocolate and Smooth Operator, as well as other nut/seed butters (Justin’s and Nuttzo) and they were all good! I think I am going to try it next with PB&Co Cinnamon Raisin!

  2. A girl after my own heart! I love nut butters too, all kinds, I don’t discriminate! I too love adding nut butter to absolutely everything. Great shake!

      I love hearing that I am not the only one with a love for nut butters!! So could you pick a favorite if you had to? I often think I can but mine change with my moods. I won’t even tell you how many jars of nut butter we have in the house!! I will say there are 5 empty jars that we finished this week, lol. Thank you, I hope you like it as much as I do!
