Carrot Cubes

carrot ice hearts 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.

So, I’ve got smoothies and broths as possible uses for carrot juice.  Any other ideas for using carrot juice out there?

Hey! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this
site? I’m getting tired of WordPress because I’ve had problems with hackers
and I’m looking at alternatives for another platform.
I would be great if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
