This is probably the most requested recipe to date. Whenever I make it and my friends or family members try it, everyone wants to know the recipe! So here you go, dear friends, family, and all the Lovetarians in the world – here’s the healthiest carrot cake recipe for you! Why is it so good for you? Well, there’s so much goodness in the pulp that’s left after juicing: vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and most importantly – dietary fibre! This seems to be one of those recipes that everybody can enjoy, no matter what their diet preferences are. I hope you do too.

INGREDIENTS

For the Cashew Lemon Frosting

  • 1 1/2 cups cashews
  • Juice from 1 lemon
  • 2 tablespoons liquid coconut oil
  • 2 tablespoons coconut nectar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla powder
  • Water, as needed

For the Carrot Cake

  • 3 large carrots, peeled and chopped into small chunks
  • 1 1/2 cups oats
  • 2 cups dates
  • 1/2 cup dried coconut
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg

PREPARATION

1. To make the frosting: blend all ingredients in your high speed blender until smooth, adding water as needed. Taste it – mmm. Put in the fridge.

2. To make the cake: process the oats into flour in your food processor then throw the rest of the ingredients in the food processor and process until it all begins to stick together.

3. Assembly: press half the cake mixture into a small spring form pan (mine is about 4 inches). Gently take this out and put on a plate, then put in the freezer until it’s solid. Do the same to the remaining half of the cake mixture. Spread about 1/3 of the frosting onto the top of one of the cake layers. Put it in the freezer until the layer of frosting is hard. Place on the other cake layer and frost the entire thing, I let it set in the fridge overnight.
