    Whipped Carrots

     On my birthday this year, my mom was whipping up some dinner for our family and I saw some orange stuff in her blender. I asked her what it was and she told me to taste it. I did and was immediately transported to my childhood! I remembered that she had made these amazing whipped carrots when I was a kid!

    It’s incredible how a taste, a sound, or even a smell can stir up memories! 

    These carrots are simple to make and can be eaten as-is or used as an incredible base to add other flavors like ginger or apples, or even mixed with pumpkin or butternut squash. They go by many other names: Carrot mash, puréed carrots, mashed carrots, etc.

    I will warn you, if you don’t have a high-powered blender like a Vitamix or Blendtec, this will need to be blended in smaller batches. 

    I prefer steaming the carrots over boiling to preserve the nutrients. I like this little steamer. It’s really convenient! 

    Always use organic carrots. Keep pesticides out of your food! Cooking carrots and eating them with a fat like butter or cream helps to unlock the nutrients since the vitamins in carrots are fat soluble. If you don’t eat them with fat, your body can’t use the vitamins as well. Keep that in mind!

    These whipped carrots are darker than the ones in the top pic because they contain less cream. They also haven’t been whipped as long.

    I love these whipped carrots paired with a fish dish and green beans. So delicious!!!

    Enjoy!

      We LOVE carrots. Even our Doberman enjoys our garden carrots. :)

      I’m sure we’d love this, too. Thanks for the recipe.
