Here’s a recipe for a carrot cake smoothie. It contains plenty of healthy fats and fiber from the ground flaxseed and carrots. This recipe features the warmth and flavor of carrot cake with the coolness of a smoothie.

Smoothies can be higher in potassium due to the raw fruits and vegetables that are added. This one has about 300 mg of potassium. Remember to ask your dietitian or doctor how much potassium you should be consuming. Most people with normal potassium levels do not need to follow a potassium restriction.
