One of the things we like to do here at Blendtec is take traditional recipes and make healthier versions of them. This Orange Dreamsicle Ice Cream just might be one of the best so far! Now, to be fair, we must warn you that this doesn’t have quite the strong flavor store-bought ice cream will have. So, if you’re expecting that, you may be disappointed. However, it is REALLY yummy! All of our taste testers approved (and some of them were skeptical! The cabbage scared them… who has ever heard of ice cream with cabbage?!?) If you try it, we’d love to hear what you think! Come back here and share it in the comments or visit the recipe page and tell us there.
Orange Dreamsicle Ice Cream
6 fl oz half and half (half milk/half cream)

½ cup baby carrots, or 1 medium carrot
