Ingredients & Equipment Used In This Recipe

While most ingredients can be bought in grocery stores, for your convenience, any specialized or notable ingredients and equipment needed for this recipe have been linked to Amazon or other stores if available online.

It may not include staple ingredients such as oil, salt, sugar, etc., as you’re likely to have those in your kitchen. The complete list of ingredients with measurements is found in the recipe card.

Recipes on The Purple Pumpkin Blog use both cup measurements and/or weighted measurements. American cups and kitchen food scales are handy pieces of equipment to have in your kitchen as it means you’ll be able to make all of the different recipes on my blog. I try to give American, imperial, and metric measurements in my recipes. Please note, you can mix cup measurements with weighted measurements, but never mix imperial (pounds, ounces, pints, etc.,) with metric (kilograms, grams, litres, etc.,).

  • You will need to chill the can of coconut milk overnight, so allow time for that!
  • The coconut milk that remains from “making” the whipped cream will be used in the smoothie.

Carrot Cake Smoothie Recipe

Carrot Cake Smoothie with Coconut Whipped Cream

Yield: 2
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 10 minutes

What a decadent way to start the day! Whip this dairy-free Carrot Cake Smoothie up in just 10 minutes!


For the Coconut Whipped Cream

  • 1 (13.5-oz/400g) can coconut milk, chilled
  • 1-2 Tbsp maple syrup (optional)
  • 1 tsp orange zest (optional)

For the Carrot Cake Smoothie

  • 1 cup coconut milk*
  • 1 large banana, cut into chunks and frozen
  • 2 large stalks celery, roughly chopped
  • 1 large orange, peeled
  • 4 large carrots, roughly chopped
  • ¾ tsp ground cinnamon
  • ¾ tsp ground allspice
  • ½ tsp ground nutmeg
  • 4-6 ice cubes

Optional Garnish

  • Ground cinnamon
  • Finely chopped walnuts


  1. To prepare the coconut whipped cream, chill coconut milk in the refrigerator for several hours or overnight. Remove the can from the refrigerator without shaking or turning and remove the lid. Scoop out the solidified “cream” from the top of the can and transfer it to a mixing bowl. Reserve remaining liquid coconut milk to use in the smoothie.
  2. Add maple syrup and orange zest, if using, to the mixing bowl and blend until light and airy. Allow coconut cream to warm up slightly before blending if lumps persist. Cover and place bowl in the refrigerator until ready to use.
  3. To make the smoothies, add the coconut milk and frozen banana to a high-speed blender and blend until smooth, around 30 seconds.
  4. Add celery, orange, carrots, cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg, and ice cubes. Blend on high speed for 1-2 minutes until completely combined and creamy.
  5. Pour into glasses and top with a scoop of coconut whipped cream. Garnish with a dash of cinnamon or finely chopped walnuts, if desired, and serve immediately. Enjoy!
