  • 1 baby carrots (bag)
  • ½ cup water


  • *Skip if using baby carrots* Wash carrots. Cut off stems and chop into 2-3 inch pieces.
  • Bring water to boil on stove.
  • Add carrots and boil for 10-15 minutes (until tender). If they're easily pierced by a fork or knife, they're done.
  • Drain water, and rinse with cold water or place in water bath to cool carrots off. This stops the cooking process internally.
  • Once they've cooled, place in blender or food processor with water. Blend until desired consistency. If needed, add additional water by the spoonful.
  • Serve fresh, and store remaining in the refrigerator (3 days) or frozen (3 months).
