Fiordilatte:(literally means milk's flower) is pure unflavored ice-cream made of high quality whole milk, lots of fresh cream and sugar.

Amaretti = Almond macaroon

Calvados: is an apple brandy from the French region of Lower Normandy (Basse-Normandy).

Preparation

Flavour the carrots with sugar and boil them in little water.
Crumble the amaretti and let the ice cream soften for circa 10 minutes.
When the carrots are soften take them out of the water, let them cool down for some minutes and then smash them into a cream with a mixer or a sieve.
Flavour the amaretti with the calvados.
Add the carrots to the amaretti and the ice cream and blend till you get a uniform mix.
Serve into an iced glass and decorate it with the cinnamon stick.
