Carrot and Almond Kheer

There's just a week left of 2020! Who is ready to say Goodbye to this year and say Hello to 2021? 

We are going to take the next 7 days to reflect and think about our goals for next year. This year has been tough on everyone.  Thank you for your continued support. 

Check out this quick and easy kheer made with carrots and almonds. It is gluten-free and not much sugar. 




Ingredients
- 200g (or 7 oz) of carrots
- 1 cup of milk
- 25g or slightly less than 1/4 cup of granulated sugar
- 6 to 7 cardamom pods, seeded and powdered
- 2 Tbsp Almond flour (or use 7 to 8 almonds, soaked and skin removed)
- 3 drops of Vanilla extract

Instructions
  • Wash and peel the carrots and then slice them into 1/2" thick pieces. Place them in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave for 4 minutes. Transfer the cooked carrots into the blender*, add milk, sugar, cardamom powder, almond flour, vanilla extract, and blend into a smoothie consistency.  
  • Pour into a microwaveable bowl and heat it for 2 to 3 minutes depending on your microwave until the kheer (pudding) bubbles up. 


  • Serve hot. 

Quick Tips
- We used the Vitamix blender and blended the ingredients on Smoothie mode; about 90 seconds. 
- For a creamier taste, you can use whole milk or 2 Tbsp of heavy cream.
