This post and giveaway for a November Acorn Box is sponsored by Acorn Influence and their clients. All opinions are my own. #TheHolidayBox
Happy Wednesday, everyone! Let’s celebrate the week being halfway over with this recipe for carrot cake smoothie bowls and a super fun and fabulous giveaway!
So I have a confession to make. I’m kind of addicted to subscription boxes. I swear, you guys, I belong to a ton of them and I honestly see no end in sight. This is why I literally jumped out of my chair at the opportunity to talk about the new November Acorn Box! It’s a very simple concept. You subscribe and you receive some of the best products out there. The November Acorn Box was full of amazing products that are perfect to get you through the holidays and there on after.
If you are anything like me, I have to have a cup of tea or coffee before I even think about diving straight into cooking something in the kitchen. The Signature Tea Company has so many great teas available at your local Walmart. They are the perfect cup to warm you up in the middle of a cool winter’s day.
After you have downed a cup of delicious tea (or 12 cups of delicious tea), it’s time to start the prep for these carrot cake smoothie bowls! This set of Chicago Cutlery Knives can be found at your local Walmart, and are the perfect utensils for the perfect slice, chop, or dice. These knives will make your lives a whole lot easier when it comes to paring and chopping your favorite veggies. They turned out to be the perfect knives for dicing up my carrots for these carrot cake smoothie bowls!
And if you are anything me, you will definitely chop too many fruits and veggies for your smoothies. I’m constantly storing the extras in the fridge. This is where your Rubbermaid 5-cup Premier Food Storage containers and set of Sharpie markers come in handy! Putting the date on a cute piece of washi tape and sticking it on your container makes your life a whole lot easier! Both of these products can also be found at your local Walmart!
Now what really makes these whole carrot cake smoothie bowls possible is the Nutri Ninja With Auto IQ. You guys, I was SHOCKED and so super excited at how powerful this blender was. With 1000W of power, I didn’t have to blend for 5 minutes to get that perfectly smooth consistency that you crave with a smoothie bowl. It took literally 30 seconds of blending and voila! That was it! I was also not sad about how easy it was to clean afterward either! You can find the Nutri Ninja With Auto IQ at your local Walmart or walmart.com.
These carrot cake smoothie bowls are a must-make this holiday season. They are especially perfect as they are a healthier option as you are stuffing your faces full of holiday treats. It’s all about balance this time of year and this series of products from the November Acorn Box and these addicting smoothie bowls can help you do just that!
