Servings: Makes 13 cupcakes
• 3 pounds carrots
• 1 pound pitted dates (or 1/2 if you’d like it less sweet).
• Cupcake papers
Put the carrots through the food processor with the shredder blade attached. This will shred the carrots makes it easier to blend,, as they aren’t as compact.
Place the shredded carrots and dates into the vitamix and blend it until it’s smooth and mixed in well. Use the tamper since the mixture will be thick.
With Dehydrator: Place the mixture onto the dehydrator sheets, or teflex sheets, and dehydrate at 115 over night for 10 hours, or until desired moisture is reached.
Without Dehydrator: You can either place the carrot cake mixture in a paint strainer bag (They’re cheaper and get the job done) or a nut milk bag or use cheese cloth to drain out the excess moisture from the mixture. You want to get as much moisture out of the carrots. You can drink the juice that comes out, or use it in a smoothie.
