{R}ecipe Thursday

If you read my last post then you know we've adopted a Paleo diet.  What is the one thing I still want?  A sweet treat!  Why?  Because sugar is addicting.  Disgusting, right?  Well this Paleo approved recipe does the trick for my sweet tooth with only 3 simple ingredients.  Ready for this?

Carrots, coconut oil & cinnamon.  That's it!!  Can you believe it?  This is the simplest, quickest, treat I've ever made.  What's better?  It tastes great hot or cold!

Here ya go.  Whipped carrots with coconut oil & cinnamon.  You can probably figure it out just by looking at the pictures but in case not, I've included the recipe at the bottom

8 Whole carrots - peeled {cut in 1/2 if necessary to fit in pot}
3 Tablespoons of Organic Coconut Oil
1 Tablespoon of Cinnamon powder {extra to garnish}
Optional - save 2 Tablespoons of the water carrots were simmered in and add with coconut oil

Steam or simmer carrots until soft in about 3/4 cup of water.  Place cooked carrots and coconut oil in food processor.  Blend until well combined.  You may want to stop it, scrape the sides to get all the carrot chunks in and briefly blend again.  Add cinnamon and whip a little more. Done and delicious.  Great for breakfast, lunch or dinner!
