This is a very fun ice cream that is totally healthy!

If you love the flavors of a good carrot cake, you will love this ice cream!

The base is carrot juice and it has pineapple, shredded carrots, shredded coconut and raisins plus all of the spices that you would find in carrot cake.

Before I created this recipe I researched to see what other people had created with the same carrot cake ice cream concept.  Some started with a base of vanilla ice cream and added pieces of actual carrot cake.  Other people flavored the ice cream like carrot cake and even added cream cheese frosting!

I wanted a more healthy version that included most of the flavors of carrot cake so I created this recipe!

It took a few tries to get the quantity right- I kept using too much carrot juice and ended up using only 2 cups of it in the end.  There is also 1- 1/2 cups of finely shredded carrot, so it has lots of carrot flavor.This recipe probably looks harder than it really is- the main thing is to have all of your ingredients prepped including cutting up the pineapple and shredding the carrots.  If you have everything ready in bowls before you heat the carrot juice it will be really easy.  You also need to keep stirring once you add the cornstarch mixture so it doesn’t get little lumps!
