No Bake Carrot Cake is very easy to make!

Carrot cakes are usually baked in the oven, but for these No Bake Carrot Cakes, simply mix the ingredients, shape and refrigerate. They are made from very healthy ingredients, so you can have them as a daily snack without feeling guilty! And also, by adding a small amount of Fermented Green Papaya Enzyme into the cakes, it can make a healthier treat that helps promote your gut health and helps lead to optimal health.
