So recently I shared a post about a Simple Beet-apple Sauce. Today’s recipe is basically the same except with carrots! I don’t usually like to go off on a rant on recipe blogs so I’ll keep it short.
The other day we were blessed with some free food. They had a huge bag of carrots that literally were the size of your face! We ended up giving a lot away to people who needed it and kept what we needed. We still had a bunch left over and so I decided to try a carrot apple sauce. My toddler is a picky eater but loved this recipe.
I know that there are a couple variations of this sauce but this is how I made mine. Now you can make your own applesauce or use store bought. We used store bought but the next time I make it I’m going to use apples. The time it takes to make this depends on how fast your carrots cook. For electric stove this could take 30 minutes for a gas stove this could take 10-15 minutes. Also when I made this, I used 1/3 cup sugar but I think it came out to sweet. But without further ado, let’s get to the recipe.
- 2 large carrots
- 1 cup water
- 1 cup Apple sauce
- 1 cup vanilla yogurt
- 1/4 cup Sugar
- 1/8 tsp of cinnamon
- A pinch or nutmeg, ginger, and clove powder (optional)
- Chop carrots up so it will be easier to cook.
- Put them in a pot with water and boil till tender
- Once tender and cooled, put in blender with applesauce, sugar, water and seasonings.
- Blend till smooth about 2-3 minutes.
- Pour in reusable pouches, freeze in ice cube trays, or eat straight away!
That’s it! It’s a great way to get your kid to eat there veggies!
