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.

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!

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

I wonder if you could mix it with another juice and make jello with unflavored gelatin. Puts a whole new meaning on Jello with carrots! ;)

[...] Juice it and freeze for later use in smoothies, broths, or homemade juice.  This is some carrot juice I froze into a shaped mold.  We used it in a carrot-vanilla-banana smoothie. [...]
