This smoothie couldn’t be easier to put together. Start by slicing some carrots. You’ll need around two cups of carrots for two 8-ounce smoothies. I used 4 skinny carrots, but 2 medium sized ones should work. Add them to your KitchenAid® 5-Speed Diamond Blender.

Then add the frozen mango, coconut milk, coconut flakes and walnuts to your Diamond Blender. Top with a dash of your favorite spices. I used ginger, cinnamon and the tiniest bit of nutmeg to bring a carrot cake-like flavor to the smoothie.

Using the Puree setting on your Blender, puree the ingredients until smooth – about 30-60 seconds.

This setting makes it a breeze to make smoothies, and it easily purees your smoothie to an ideal consistency. After pureeing, add a drizzle of maple syrup to taste.
