Carrot-Almond Cooler For MBP

I had a bag of baby carrots sitting in the fridge for ages! I knew that I cannot finish it before the used by date,so had a thought of making some refreshing drink for MBP…When I saw this carrot-almond cooler on lavanya’s blog i was totally impressed and wanted to try it out immediately. It tasted awesome and quite simple to make. Just pressure-cook the carrots, almond with milk. Blend everything with milk and sugar until smooth. Serve chill.

You can find the recipe here.

I don’t usually drink mixed drinks but Sig's event made me an opportunity to try.I really enjoyed making and drinking this lovely drink. As I don’t have raw almond, I replaced it with the roasted ones.

This awesome drink goes to Sig who is hosting the March edition of Monthly Blog Patrol.
