I’m all about the tropical juice lately. My subconscious must be darn tired of Texas. But it’s carrot week and carrot week is all about hiding carrots in as many unexpected dishes as possible, and what better way to trick myself into eating carrots than with this orange powerhouse of a juice? Answer: No better way.
You won’t need a fancy juice machine for this. We’ll basically just blend everything together. I was quite surprised by my dilapidated blender’s refusal to quit. She blended those carrots right up! Then let the mixture drip through a mesh strainer and bing bang boom, juice.
But being that I am in Texas and not on a tropical island, it is one million degrees outside, so I took this a step further and made a frozen granita. As we did with the Watermelon Granitas from a few weeks ago, just pour the juice into a wide, shallow pan (optimally glass so you don’t scratch it up), then freeze it. Every few hours, take it out and scrape the top and sides with a fork until the whole thing is frozen. I did add a touch of sugar for the granita though, because colder foods tend to have less pronounced flavors than warm foods (and because…sweet tooth).
