A foodie doesn’t need an excuse to eat a dessert. Whether it is a festival, a birthday or just the weekend, we foodies love to celebrate everything with some tasty desserts. While vegetables are not a popular choice for a dessert, there is one vegetable that makes some of our favourite desserts – it’s carrot. Carrots are a seasonal vegetable that is available during the winters and are known for various health benefits. Carrots are high in beta-carotene that converts to vitamin A in the body which is extremely healthy for our vision, teeth and skin. They are also rich in anti-oxidants and alkaline elements that work as blood purifiers. Eating carrots regularly may help lower high levels of uric acid and other toxins in our body.
They are sweet and pleasant and add a subtle flavour to whatever you cook it with. Here are some delicious carrot-based desserts that you must try in this cold weather.
