I've looked up several carrot juice recipes and none were quite the same as the one my mother used to make for us growing up. It's most popular in the Caribbean around the holidays and can double as an adult beverage with the addition of your favorite alcohol (namely rum or guinness). It has a milk base with spices like vanilla and nutmeg, so it's definitely not a carrot juice for those looking for health, but hey, there are carrots involved! Obviously you may need to double, triple or quadruple your recipe to make enough for several people, but I chose to explain it in relation to the blender's capacity, since a regular blender can't hold a 5 pound bag of carrots.
