One very fast way to use lots of carrots in a short amount of time is juicing them! My goodness it takes a lot of carrots! I can get about 1 cup of carrot juice out of 1 lb of carrots. But seeing as we had plenty to spare, I went ahead and splurged.
After the carrots were juiced, I poured the juice into ice cube molds. The frozen carrot juice can last for several months properly packaged in the freezer. You can then use the carrot ice cubes for smoothies or even a veggies soup broth!
We decided on smoothies for today. This smoothie was super easy and very low in sugar, yet it was sweet.
Carrot Banana Smoothie
- 1 cup frozen carrot juice ice cubes
- 1 cup vanilla soy milk
- 1 banana
Blend in blender until smooth!
Don’t have time for juicing, or don’t have a juicer? Mary Kathryn suggested just chopping up the carrots whole and freezing them for smoothies! Great idea!
