Ingredients

  • 2 medium sized carrots Or 1 cup chopped carrots
  • 4 pitted Dates
  • 1 ½ cup un sweetened plant based milk chilled
  • ¼ cup filtered water
  • 2 scoop vegan vanilla ice cream if you desired

Instructions

  • Soak the dates in ¼ cup of hot water for 10 minutes. Then drain the water and use only soaked pitted dates.
    4 pitted Dates
  • Wash, peel the skin and grate or chop carrots. Heat a pan, add grated or chopped carrots and saute them on low heat with 2 tablespoon of water.
    Cook until the raw smell of the carrot goes. Do not overcook the carrots. Leave it to cool.
    2 medium sized carrots
  • Grind the carrots with almond milk, soaked dates, and blend until smooth.

  • At the end add vegan unsweetened vanilla ice cream(optional) and blend again. Enjoy!
    2 scoop vegan vanilla ice cream

Notes

  • You could use soaked almonds in place of almond milk. Add water and soaked (for 3-5 hours) almonds to get the milkshake texture.
  • Soaked dates are a great substitute for refined sugar. If dates are not available to you add 4 tablespoon of sugar.
  • Carrot Milkshakes can stay good inside the refrigerator for up to 3 days
  • Extra flavor: You could add a pinch of cardamom for extra flavor. Cardamom can be rather strong, so you only need a pinch or two of it.
  • Soaking dates is an important step you cannot avoid. If you have this recipe planned out, be sure to soak the dates in room temperature water for 4 hours.
  •  A scoop of vegan Vanilla ice cream can be added as you blend the ingredients to get a creamier consistency. I used unsweetened coconut milk vanilla ice cream when the dates do not turn out sweet.
  • If you do not prefer adding ice cream, add ¼ cup of top layer of chilled coconut milk can (only cream part, skip the water).
