Vegan Jamaican Carrot Drink

The rising temperatures can sure put you in the mood for something cold and refreshing, doesn’t it?  Well, this awesome Jamaican carrot drink is just the ticket to quenching that thirst.  

I remember an old friend of mine introducing me to this drink many moons ago.  Since giving up milk due to intolerance I wanted a way to continue enjoying this drink without the side effects.  I experimented with coconut, rice and soy milk for this recipe but my favorite, hands down, is with vanilla almond milk.  

Together with the nutmeg, this drink is nothing but amazing.  I mean it is cold, refreshing and creamy with a just a hint of nutmeg that leaves you wanting more with every sip. Hubby and I have been guzzling sipping on these since the temperatures warmed up.

I have made it with and without liqueur or vanilla essence and it was still perfect.  If you like you can experiment and bump it up a notch with a spike of your favorite rum for a more adult drink, but seriously it is perfect without any additions.  

If you love carrot juice and don’t mind juicing its great to make and have it fresh the same day.  Sometimes, it is just not realistic to make fresh juice everyday so making enough that you can use within 1 to 3 days can truly save you some time.  

You may want to follow your juicer’s recommendation on how long you can store your juices and glass mason jars are also ideal for storing fresh juices.   I usually try to make enough for 1-2 days, if it lasts that long with the carrot juice drinkers in my house.  🙂  

How can I forget the health benefits that this simple but delicious drink has to offer. Carrots on their own are loaded with vitamin A, K and biotin along with the B vitamins and vitamin C. They are surprisingly low on the glycemic index and offer antioxidant and phytonutrient antioxidant benefits.  If you would like to learn more about these benefits you can get additional information here

You can use the remaining pulp, which is high in fiber, to make carrot cakes, breads or scones so there is limited waste and you get enjoy the carrot in various and unique ways.
I did not do a step by step for this drink as it is relatively easy to put together once the juicing process is complete.  

A tall glass with ice, vanilla almond milk, agave, nutmeg and carrot juice is all that is needed for this simple, yet refreshing vegan version of the Jamaican carrot drink.  

Enjoy.  Cheers!!!
