I know, I know, I know – carrot?! At least that was my husbands reaction as he twisted his face in disgust. Well, I have to tell you, even I was pleasantly surprised by how good the carrot ice cream was. I think that we all forget that carrots can have a sweetness to them, particularly when they are juiced or roasted. I’ve been trying to find some new smoothie recipes this week, so I juiced a bag of carrots. However if you are feeling lazy – like I am most weeks- you could easily just buy some carrot juice for the recipe. I would recommend pairing this ice cream with a chicken dinner.
2 cups heavy cream
1 cup whole milk
0.5 cup sugar
0.5 cup carrot juice
In a sauce pan create the base by combining the heavy cream, milk, and sugar. Whisk until the sugar has dissolved.
Add in the carrot juice. Stir until combined
Add the base to your ice cream maker and churn to the manufactures instructions.
Refrigerate for a few hours.
Serve and enjoy!
