Sweet Carrot Pops

These were most definitely inspired by this Carrot Milkshake by Megan of EatBeautiful.net. I absolutely adore her recipes and her vegetable-based smoothies. I removed the turmeric from the recipe (among other tweaks) merely because I didn't want to deal with yellow stains on my kids' shirts since it's inevitable that popsicles will drip when handled by a three-year-old!
Prep Time30 minutes
Cook Time4 hours
Total Time4 hours 30 minutes

Ingredients

  • 4-5 medium carrots, peeled
  • ¼ cup honey
  • ½ cup heavy cream, preferably cultured
  • ½ inch fresh ginger, grated
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ cup whole milk or water, if needed

Instructions

  • First, cook the carrots. Chop them into 1-inch pieces, then steam them until soft. Set aside to cool.
  • Place the cooled carrot chunks in a blender with the honey, cream, ginger, and cinnamon.
  • Blend until completely smooth, adding milk or water as necessary to keep the mixture moving.
  • Pour into the popsicle molds and freeze until completely firm, at least 4 hours.

Notes

Note about yield: This recipe makes approximately 3 cups of popsicle mixture, which makes 10 popsicles in this simple popsicle mold, but there will likely be a bit leftover. I enjoy the leftovers best as a smoothie.
