  • 5 large carrots
  • cups almond, rice or oat milk
  • 1 cup canned coconut milk
  • 1 tablespoon butter or coconut oil
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • ½ teaspoon ground cardamom
  • teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/16 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/16 teaspoon ground cloves
  • dash salt
  • ¼ cup raisins
  • ¼ cup pistachios roasted and unsalted


  • Wash, peel and shred carrots.
  • Pour milk into a medium saucepan, and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Add carrots to pan; simmer 20 minutes.
  • After milk begins to thicken and take on an orange color from carrots, add butter or coconut oil and honey to pan. Stir until butter has melted; then add cardamom, ginger, cinnamon, cloves and salt. Toss in raisins; stir to combine. Continue to simmer 10 minutes, or until more of the milk has evaporated and carrots are very soft. Remove pan from heat.
  • Top with pistachios; serve warm or cold.
