Carrot cake smoothie recipe

Ingredients
1/3 cup chopped carrots
1 Tbsp chopped pecans
1 tsp raisins
1/2 cup milk (or almond milk)
1/2 banana, frozen
1/8 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp nutmeg

Instructions
Add all ingredients and blend
Top with shredded carrots, raisins and chopped pecans for garnish.

This recipe was a new one to us, as is the magic bullet. The carrot, banana, nutmeg and carrot were all noticeable flavours, and the best way to describe it is an odd kind of nice! I think I would try it again, but it needed more liquid, it was a little bit thick.

The swim was 50m sprints today, I didn’t decide until I arrived at the pool, what I would do exactly. All sprints were within a second of each other, except for one, which was two seconds faster. Pretty good. Now I think I need to add 5 more!
