Caribbean Carrot Punch

I’m really enjoying making my own drinks this summer and as I had some carrots lying around, I decided to make carrot punch this week. Carrot punch is a nutmeg and cinnamon spiced carrot juice that’s found throughout the Caribbean. This drink might seem a little unusual at first, but it’s tasty and refreshing, and a great way to get more carrots into your diet.

You can make this an alcoholic drink by spiking it with some white rum. I made my drink nonalcoholic as I intend to drink it after jogging in the morning. Condensed milk is included in this drink to give it a creamy texture. As carrots are naturally sweet and condensed milk is super sweet, I only add a bit of condensed milk, just enough to give the drink some creaminess. Sometimes, I use canned coconut milk instead of condensed milk.
