Do you love carrots? How about carrot juice? Or, carrot cake perhaps? Today's post if full of all kinds of carrot goodness thanks to the folks at Bolthouse Farms. And, did you know that those folks behind Bolthouse Farms are carrot farmers (with more than 95 years of experience)?! These carrot farmers not only grow carrots, but also make delicious fruit and vegetable juices! When contacted about trying out some of the 30+ flavors that Bolthouse Farms offers, I knew I wanted to make some sort of delicious recipe(s) with them. Various smoothie concoctions would have been an obvious choice, but I was stuck on the carrots. Carrot cake is my hands-down favorite. But, I wanted something a little more "breakfasty" to go with our Bolthouse juice! So, I decided on attempting carrot cake muffins made with Bolthouse Farms 100% Carrot Juice! The results….oh my yum!!!

Mmm….I wish the smell could come through your screen right now! These little muffins are super good! They'd certainly be even yummier with a smear of homemade cream cheese frosting on them. But, alone, they are quite tasty, moist, and full of carrot goodness!! So, you can certainly make some tasty foods with Bolthouse Farms juices. But, the drinks are definitely great on their own! And, there's such a great variety–ranging from carrot juice and carrot juice blends to Amazing Mango juice to breakfast smoothies and protein shakes. They even feature holiday egg nog treats. Yum! Here's the variety I got to sample: We're loving everything we've tried so far! The Mango Coconut Splash is SO light and refreshing! I love it!
