Carrot cake smoothie bowl

I didn't like carrot cake for years, but it's my brother's favourite. So every year September would roll around, I'd make my annual carrot cake and take the whole thing to his, collecting the container a week later. 

One year I brought said cake to his birthday meal instead and we all tucked in after. I was hooked. So much regret about shunning it for the first 2 decades of my life. But don't worry, I've been making up for lost time. Anything that could potentially be carrot cake-afied – energy balls, cookies, oats – I've given it a go. 

Since being in Bali, I've really missed my carroty fix. It's not such a thing here and with no access to an oven, I've had to accept it's off the cards. So this got me thinking, carrot cake smoothie bowl...?

Ingredients (makes 2)
half a small steamed and frozen cauliflower
1 frozen banana
1 big/ 2 small carrots
2 tsp cinnamon powder
a splash of almond milk
10 walnuts

granola (duh)
coconut yoghurt
pumpkin seeds

Add the carrot, almond milk and walnuts to a blender and blend until smooth. Slowly add in the cauliflower and banana bit at a time (unless you have an amazing blender) before finishing with the cinnamon. Top with goodies.
