Carrot Pudding

Don’t be fooled by the title of this recipe, our carrot pudding more closely resembles a rich butterscotch custard. Kids won’t even know that they are eating a veggie based dessert! We like to use fresh squeezed juice, but if you don’t own a juicer, store bought will work just fine.

Carrot Pudding

The 2 tbsp of grated carrots are an optional addition in this recipe. If you are serving this dish to finicky eaters, it is fine to omit them.
