About the Recipe


  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter 

  • 1 1/4 cups finely shredded carrots

  • 1/3 cup brown sugar

  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

  • 1 1/4 teaspoons cinnamon

  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger

  • 4 ounces soft cream cheese

  • 1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 2 1/4 cups heavy cream

  • 1/3 cup toasted chopped pecans

  • 1/3 cup chopped walnuts


Step 1

Combine butter, carrots, brown sugar, and salt in a saucepan over medium heat. Cook and stir until carrots are just getting tender, about 5 minutes. Season with cinnamon and ginger. Cook for 1 more minute. Turn off heat, and let cool.

Step 2

Meanwhile, whisk together cream cheese, sweetened condensed milk, and vanilla extract in a bowl until smooth. Stir in cooled carrot mixture and transfer to the refrigerator until needed.

Step 3

Beat cream in a chilled glass or metal bowl with an electric mixer until medium-stiff  peaks form. Add cooled carrot-cream cheese mixture and whisk into the whipped cream. Fold in chopped walnuts and pecans with a spatula.

Step 4

Transfer mixture into a chilled airtight container and place a piece of plastic wrap directly onto the mixture. Cover with a lid and freeze until solid, at least 4 hours, but best overnight.
