PUMPKIN JUICE (with carrots)
1 ½ lbs pumpkin washed and cut into chunks
6 large carrots 1 tbsp grated nutmeg
½ tsp grated ginger 2 tbsp vanilla essence
1 cup brown sugar 1 ¼; cups evaporated milk
1 cup Malta ¼ cup plain yogurt
You can use the same amount of condensed milk instead of evaporated milk, but because condensed milk is sweeter, add half the amount of sugar.
Step 1: Boil carrots and pumpkin in reasonable amount of water as it will be needed to blend vegetables, then let both water and vegetables cool.
Step 2: Depending on how large your blender or mixer is, divide your ingredients in half. If your blender can hold everything you don't have to divide.
Step 3: Add pumpkin, carrots and 1 ½ cups of the water used to boil vegetables to blender (that is if you divide the ingredients, if not, use 3 cups), then blend until liquified.
Step 4: Add plain yogurt, nutmeg and ginger and blend just a little more.
Step 5: Pour mixture in a jug adding sugar, Malta, evaporated milk and vanilla essence.
Step 6: Stir well until sugar is dissolved. Taste, and if not sweet to your suit, add sugar as desired
This pumpkin juice recipe is great to have with light sandwiches as it is already a heavy meal in a glass. Please enjoy.
