  • 1 large carrot, shredded (about 1/2 cup) sometimes I even buy the baby food pouches of carrots. Works great! They have all kinds that mix great into oatmeal and shakes.
  • 2 tbsp raisins
  • 2 dashes cinnamon
  • 2-3 drops vanilla extract
  • Drizzle of agave nectar or a few dates to add a bit of natural sweetness
  • 1 scoop Growing Naturals Vanilla Blast Pea Protein powder (amps up the tastiness and nutrition about 75%!)
