Start by caramelizing your carrots. Slice carrots into 1/2 inch thick circles and place on a baking sheet. Drizzle with maple syrup and sea salt, and then broil in the oven until golden-brown. Set aside.
To make the smoothie, add all ingredients into a high-power blender. Blend on high until smooth, with no chunks. You might need to stop and stir a few times to get everything incorporated into the smooth texture.
Garnish with walnut pieces, caramelized carrots, and a splash of whole milk kefir. Happy fall!
