First of all, I just created The Breakfast Drama Queen Facebook page! As you can imagine, I’d be forever grateful if you wouldn’t mind ‘Liking’ my page :)
I have many obsessions – baking, crosswords, hot chocolates, purchasing cookbooks… and the list goes on. While I move on from some of my obsessions (there was a time long ago when I ate chicken nuggets with reckless abandon), some of them are still with me today (I still enjoy old episodes of The Simpsons).
One of my newer obsessions is carrot cake. Not just the cake itself (which is pretty amazing), but making tons of things ‘carrot cake flavoured’. Regardless of whether it’s baked oatmeal, muffins, pancakes or anything else – if it exists, it can be carrot caked.
See that cookie next to the smoothie? Yep, it’s a carrot cake cookie.
Side Note: If you wanted the recipe for the cookies, it will be in my eBook ‘Cookies for Breakfast’ (which is still a work in progress). The cookies are completely vegan and flour-less (but contain plenty of oats).
Looking at these photos, I can’t help but notice the ridiculousness of that straw. It’s like a skyscraper’s coming out of my smoothie.
Note to self: Buy smaller straws.
If (like me) you don’t have a juicer, then you’re in luck! Rather than using carrot juice, I decided to simply grate the carrots and blend them in.
Speaking of myself, if you’re like me and (understandably) hate cleaning blenders, then I highly recommend buying an immersion blender. They’re so much easier to clean!
