Easter is just around the corner and everyone is beginning to crave carrot cake. I am a bit nitpicky about my carrot cake. I don’t really like raisins in it. And I especially don’t like large chunks of carrot. I also hate it when it is just feels like a super chunky spice cake. I need a blend of carrot, spice, creaminess, and crunch. Apparently, that’s a lot to ask for because I still haven’t had my perfect carrot cake…. And I am still working on perfecting my own recipe.
Instead, I get my carrot cake fix by making everything else taste like the cake… like these carrot cake popsicles. These popsicles are my new favorite treat, especially now that that the weather is so nice. I don’t know what it is like where you are, but it’s been in the 70s all week long! All the warm weather has me craving my ice creams and popsicles and carrot cake is just perfect for Spring days like this.
You can easily make these carrot cake popsicles using a high-powered blender without any issues. If you have an older blender that isn’t very powerful or want some extra insurance for a super smooth mix, you may want to precook your carrots to soften them. I do this by cutting my carrots into small pieces and place in a microwave safe bowl with hot water and cook for about 2 ½ minutes in the microwave. Then I strain out the carrots and put into an ice bath for about a minute before straining and lightly patting dry. This recipe also makes an amazing carrot cake smoothie if you don’t want a popsicle!
