I know what you’re thinking — carrots???
But Happy Tummies, have I ever led you astray?
Let me preface this by saying that I am addicted to this little treat. I have eaten this for lunch for the past 5 days in a row.
I’ve gone through 2 huge bags of organic carrots. And I’m proud:)
My mom tried this, and loved it. Her quote, “I know why you like this: Because it tastes like pumpkin bread batter.” Couldn’t have said it better myself.
It’s hard to believe that it’s made of carrots! Because it is SO delicious and luxurious! And — it’s gluten free, vegan, and Body Ecology Diet friendly!
Here’s what you need:
7 medium carrorts ~ 2 cups chopped, and steamed
1/2 cup raw cashews
15 drops pure liquid stevia (BED use alcohol free)
3 Tbsp coconut milk (I used light)
1/2 – 1 tsp cinnamon
pinch of salt
Super simple: Dice your carrots (should equal 2 cups) and steam them for 5 minutes until tender and bright orange. Let them cool for a minute, then add them to your food processor with the rest of your ingredients. Blend for 1-2 minutes until smooth and creamy, scraping down the sides once.
That’s it!! Couldn’t be easier!!
This little pudding is SO fabulous. And, it’s delicious warm, or chilled. My mom hit the nail on the head when she said it tastes like pumpkin bread batter! It’s sweet, creamy, cinnamon-y, and so luxurious! Do I even need to tell you that I licked the bowl? :)
And it’s so healthy too! Carrots are rich in Beta Carotene, Vitamin A, fiber, minerals, and antioxidants, while cashews are full of protein and healthy fats!
Try this recipe — You’ll LOVE it!

Holy yum! Pumpkin bread batter is amazing so clearly this would be too!
I love the cups you served it in- so cute!
Thank you Gabby! Oh my gosh this was so yummy – I literally have eaten it every day for a week! And thanks for the shout out on your blog! I don’t have internet right now, so I’m limited to my blackberry! Hope you have a great week!
Looks delicious! Can’t wait to try it (and maybe even get my littlest to eat some veggies!) Thanks for sharing!
Thank you Tina! Oh I hope you enjoy! I have a feeling your little one will gobble it up:) thanks for stopping by!
Great pictures! And boy, such a simple recipe – and it sounds so tasty. I love carrots but rarely use them in breads or desserts (don’t ask me why I don’t, I know they work well in those dishes). This looks terrific – thanks.
Thank you! Simple recipes are the best — I like short prep time and easy clean up! That’s a recipe for a winner! Thanks for stopping by!
I love how many different cups you had- proof that you literally couldn’t get enough of this! oh my, pumpkin bread batter, I have to try this!
Thank you Heather! You’re so right — I love this stuff! I’m making it for my sisters-in-law this afternoon!! :) hope you’re having a great Monday! Thanks for stopping by!

Haha pinkies up indeed! Thanks Kristy! It is *spot on* pumpkin batter!! Glad you stopped by!

Folks, try this! This little recipe somehow really does taste like pumpkin bread batter. It’s so great. C, thank you for introducing me to this one, you know how I like my sweets. I am gonna make this too.
You’re the best Liz! Thank you:) I made this again yesterday…I am addicted! haha Even D Man was asking for a sample – or 3, and mare asked to lick the bowl! Haha – I think its a winner! Love ya!
I have to try this! What a wonderful way to serve carrots. This should be nominated for the school lunch program. No more try to convince kids to eat their veggies. I may test it on my husband . . .
Haha thank you! Yeah my teenage boy cousin was gobbling it up! So that says a lot! I hope your husband likes it! I think I may be turning into a rabbit with the ammount of carrots I go through! Haha Thanks for stopping by!

this looks great if you dont have cashews what other nut can you substitute for them?
Thank you so much! I would suggest macadamia nuts! :) THanks for stopping by! Have a great afternoon!

Sounds so yum! I can’t have cashews, though (or peanuts) and so many of the vegan desserts have cashew! I often substitute almonds, but I don’t know what I’d do here.
Thank you Mary! Bummer about the cashews and peanuts — I can’t have peanuts either. But macadamia nuts are a really great substitute!! :) Hope that helps! Thanks for stopping by! Enjoy your day!

Hey Caralynn ~ I meant to ask you on another recipe that uses cashew, if you ever soak your cashews first? I suppose if you did, you’d mention doing so in the directions. Just curious if you’ve ever and if it would make any difference (?). LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the idea of this recipe (AND the Broccoli Cupcakes! And well, SO many of your other recipes for that matter!). Thanks for you all that you do. AWESOME recipes. …honestly, I don’t even know how you keep up? How you find time every day to blog/post recipes. Wow, pretty impressive I must say. :)
gosh, thank you so much Dana!! That just made my day:) You know, I actually don’t soak my cashews. I use them raw. I suppose I probably should soak them, as that makes them easier to digest, but to be honest, I usually don’t have the time. Thanks for stopping by! Have an awesome Monday!
Oops. I apologize for spelling your name incorrectly (eesh, don’t you hate that?). One “n”, One “n”. I’ll remember that for next time (lol).
haha…no worries Dana!! I’m totally used to it…usually people spell it with an “o”….but i’m a “double a” gal :) hehe
Wow, you’re fast. Well, ok, cool. Thanks for sharing. And well, yah, I can only imagine WHY you don’t have the time. I’ll probably soak mine just for the added benefits. Again, thanks!!! …and so glad to have made your day. :)
