Jamaican Carrot Juice (Punch)

Jamaican Carrot Juice

I guess when you think of carrot juice you think of something that is a simple and healthy veggie juice with no additives. Well Jamaican carrot juice or carrot punch is NOT a low calorie food. In fact, this “juice” is more like dessert as it boasts rum, condensed milk, cinnamon, nutmeg and sometimes even Guinness stout as added ingredients. 

It is a super simple recipe to make and I guess despite the added fat, sugar and alcohol, the carrots are pretty healthy for you. Luckily, this treat is not something we have everyday and is limited to mostly Sundays and special holidays. It is downright a creamy and delicious pairing to have with dinner or as an after-dinner treat.

Ingredients

  • 2 large carrots (diced in 2 inch pieces)
  • 4 cups of water for boiling + 1 cup for blended mix
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • ¾  tsp nutmeg (grated)
  • Dusting of cinnamon
  • ½  can condensed milk (8 oz can)
  • ½ cup Jamaican rum or ½ bottle Guinness stout

Instructions

  1. Peel and cut carrots into 2 inch pieces. Boil carrots in 4 cups of water in a saucepan until fork tender.
  2. Once carrots are boiled cool for about 15 minutes. Transfer the carrots and the boiling liquid to a blender. Blend carrots and water and transfer to a large pitcher. It is very important that the carrots are allowed to cool for a few minutes. Hot liquid will expand in the blender and can cause severe burns. 
  3. To the blended mixture, add 1 cup of water. You may add 2 cups of water if you want carrot juice with a more runny consistency. 
  4. To flavor the drink, add rum, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg and milk to the pitcher and stir well. 
  5. You may chill the drink or serve immediately over ice.

[…] Jamaican carrot juice is hardly juice. Though it contains carrots, they are usually cooked and blended with sweetened condensed milk, spices and either rum or stout or a combination of both. It tastes more like dessert in a glass. When my mother usually makes it, she makes it so thick that you can eat it with a spoon. When I decided to showcase ice cream recipes for instagram and the blog, I decided to start with a play on Jamaican carrot juice. If you want to try the juice first, I have a recipe for it here.  […]
