Many of you have requested my recipe for Jamaican Carrot Juice! I know it’s a favourite drink for a lot of people, however, I really don’t make it much so I had to try my hand at creating this recipe for you. You’ll notice in my video that I’m tentative about how much sweetened condensed milk to add. That’s because I didn’t want to over-power the natural carrot flavour. If you prefer a strong carrot flavour just add more carrots or use less water with the amount of carrots below. Though it’s always traditional to sprinkle nutmeg on top when serving up a glass of carrot juice, I added grated nutmeg to the batch I made for the video. Either way, you can’t lose.
Carrots are naturally sweet so for a lighter dairy-free version add sugar, lime juice and ginger to your carrot juice instead of the traditional ingredients. Pour over ice for a refreshing way to quench your thirst.
2lbs Carrots, chopped in 2-inch pieces
4 to 5 cups cold Water
1 Tbsp Vanilla Flavouring
12-oz Sweetened Condensed Milk, or to taste
1/4 tsp Nutmeg, grated
1 Tbsp Jamaican Rum (optional)
1. Using a blender, blend the carrots with water in batches
2. Separate juice into a bowl or pitcher using a strainer or cheesecloth
2. Stir in vanilla, sweetened condensed milk, nutmeg and rum
Pour over ice and enjoy!
