These roasted carrots and dates are a gourmet, crowd pleasing side dish but are easy to make and made with affordable ingredients. A colorful, flavor-packed recipe that would make any holiday table sing!
– Unsweetened oat milk – Almond butter – Medjool dates – Ground cinnamon – Cayenne pepper – Orange peel – Vanilla extract – Brewed hot coffee
Add the oat milk, almond butter, dates, cinnamon, cayenne, orange peel, and vanilla to a small or medium saucepan. Bring to a rapid simmer and maintain it for 10 minutes, whisking occasionally.
Remove the milk from the heat and transfer it to a high-powered blender. Remove the center cap of the blender and cover with a dish towel to allow steam to escape. Blend on high until the mixture is very smooth and creamy, and all of the dates and orange peel are pulverized. Taste and adjust flavors as necessary.
Divide the hot coffee into two coffee mugs and then pour the almond butter date milk into each mug. Sprinkle with cinnamon and enjoy!
